Gnaw Their Tongues The Cessation Of Suffering

  • Consouling Sounds
  • Metal, Drone, Experimental
'The Cessation of Suffering' follows a break of three years, and suitably manifests as Gnaw Their Tongues' bleakest album ever. Sounds bend, break, and then break further from nearly every direction; genres are chopped and screwed and then spit out from a black-hole vacuum that's more musique concrete rather than "music." More specifically, LP #15 strips away anything remotely "enjoyable" or indeed "musical to be left with a hollow shell of sensation, concentrating solely on horrible sounds and frequencies which mirror the horrible state of the world and inner turmoil. There's truly only one Gnaw Their Tongues, and 'The Cessation of Suffering' punctuates the fact like an enormous door slamming in the depths of Hell.

Cleo Sol Heaven

  • Forever Living Origi
Part of the enigmatic London collective SAULT, Heaven is the singer-songwriter's third album is a balm of cool, dreamy reflections on faith, love and courage. The soul singer Cleo Sol is a big part of Sault. But compared with them, the enigmatic vocalist is - almost - an open book. We know what she looks like. We know she was born in London as Cleopatra Zvezdana Nikolic; her parents (Jamaican and Serbian-Spanish) are thought to have met in a jazz band. London-born singer performed sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall; for a singer without hits to her name, this was a monumental feat. Cleo's affirming odes have chimed with an audience who've grown with her, bearing witness to a repertoire of soul-seasoned fusion - distinctly homegrown but with the kind of transatlantic appeal that made Sade a crossover success. New album 'Heaven' is Cleo Sol's third in under four years, and like previous LPs - 'Rose In The Dark' and 'Mother' - it dramatises the vicissitudes that comes with enduring love, fidelity, motherhood and the orbit of platonic relationships. 'Heaven' develops rather than radically departs from the muted palette of it's predecessors, this time through the lens of an earned maturity. These are short stories with a heightened sense of spiritual self-work coursing through them. On the bass groove rhapsody 'Self', Cleo delivers prophetic notes, calling on a higher power in a moment of inner discord; the title track with it's gospel phrasing is a reminder to oneself, and to other ground down beings, that salvation is found within - that "loving yourself is free"

Kurt Rosenwinkel & Geri Allen A Lovesome Thing

  • Motema Music
  • Jazz, Indie
This one-and-only recorded collaboration between jazz greats Geri Allen and Kurt Rosenwinkel took place live at the famed Philharmonie de Paris in 2012—the two play as if with one mind. Geri often spoke of her desire to do a studio recording to document the ‘flow and freedom” she experienced playing with Kurt that night in Paris. Unfortunately, we lost her before that date never materialized, and fortunately, that concert was recorded. The acoustics in this hall are magnificent, This album, produced by Kurt Rosenwinkel and Motéma's Jana Herzen is dedicated to Geri's memory and is truly a 'lovesome thing' for fans of Geri, of Kurt, and of piano and guitar jazz.
