Record(s) o’ the Month – November 2018

“By almost any measure, 2018 has been a pretty solid year for music. November has once again left us with a list of excellent candidates for the best of the month. But while this month, we had some pretty big names put out some pretty big albums that, frankly, lived up to their reputations, I think we need to go a different direction. So damn the plebs and the lowest common denominators, here’s your Record o’ the Month!” Trench feet.

The Ocean – Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic Review

“When I listen to The Ocean, I can’t help but think of Angry Metal Guy. Though I was a fan before (especially of fluxIon and the Precambrian double album), Noctus and Angry Metal Guy convinced me to take Pelagial seriously.

It’s been five years and, now, I stand here holding Pelagial‘s follow-up, Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic.” Teutonic plates are shifting.
