Sargent House

In 2015, there have been a number of great progressive rock albums. Among these releases, none has been more remarkable than Chelsea Wolfe’s Abyss. Abyss, her fifth studio album, dropped in August on the Sargent House label. Abyss is her strongest body of work to date, blending elements of folk, doom metal and electronic music into divinely ethereal concoctions. In an era where irony and kitsch still reign supreme, Chelsea Wolfe offers material that is refreshingly sincere. The sound composures on Abyss range from being delicate to overwhelming. Chelsea Wolfe displays mastery of her craft as Abyss flows from the devastating and haunting to the lush and awe inspiring. Abyss is remarkable from start to finish.

As a general rule, I tend to like pretty much everything that Sargent House puts out. After all, their roster incudes acts Russian Circles, Chelsea Wolfe, Emma Ruth Rundle/Marriages, Omar Rodriguez Lopez/The Mars Volta/Bosnian Rainbows, Mutoid Man, and Helms Alee, just to name a few. As a general rule, I also tend to really enjoy Japanese post-everything rockers Boris.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez

The Sentimental Engine Slayer is the third film by guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In, Bosnian Rainbows), but it is only the first to receive a public release. It was completed in 2007, but wasn't released until 2010. Omar wrote, directed, produced, scored, and played the lead character in this film to great effect - the visuals are gorgeous, the plot is thought-provoking, the humor is very funny, and the acting is solid.
