Ashbrooks (guitars), Rupert Benda (keyboards & synthesizers), Keven-Yannic Iwansky (bass) and Chris Weick (drums).

This Patch of Sky is an instrumental/post-rock band from Oregon, USA. Their 2nd full length LP, S/T, is a new stepping stone for the band as they begin to shift their focus on creating more of a soundtrack vs. individual tracks. As a result, S/T gives you a more powerful, atmospheric, and cinematic album that gives the listener a chance to either stay engaged or simply drift away. With the addition of cellist Alex Abrams, the band continues to grow in their writing style which becomes clearly evident in this release.

Coming from the same city that’s home to two post-metal heavy hitters, Russian Circles and Pelican, Chicago’s Rocket Miner have carved a decidedly non-metal niche for themselves within the scene. Where Rocket Miner really stand out, not only from their hometown contemporaries, but in the genre as a whole, is their ability to write songs that don’t adhere to some of post-rock’s more tried and true characteristics. But while Russian Circles and Pelican take darker turns and incorporate metal-esque riffing, Rocket Miner’s songs tend to blossom in slow-motion, like flowers blooming, giving plenty of time to allow the sweeping grandeur to earn its reward.
The band has performed with other sonically-minded bands (Junius, Spindrift, The End of the Ocean, Secret Colours, Cowboy Indian Bear) as well as those from overseas (Denmark’s The Foreign Resort; Brazil’s Labrinto), and have taken to … Read More »

Dynamic, Intense and Passionate are just some of the words used to describe the innovative work of instrumental guitarist and composer, Dominic Gaudious.
