Not many albums can serve as revelation and entertainment, teacher and confidante, mystical portal and emotional rescue, yet Lunar Nocturnes and Esoteric Incantations manages all this and more. Massachusetts dwelling synthesizer magic-user Jenn Taiga charts course for one of the most highly memorable musical destinations of 2021, and by that I mean the album is a world unto itself. Light and dark, welcoming and inhospitable...sometimes in the same song. A deep meditation and major statement. Fave track: "Braziers are Burning" Tridroid has the cassette version HERE.

Long-running Oakland, California-based doom metal band CARDINAL WYRM is preparing to release their fourth album, Devotionals, on December 11th. Alongside the album’s details, cover art, and preorders, the song “Nightmarchers” has been made available for streaming.
CARDINAL WYRM‘s Devotionals can be described as heavy, intricate, driving, progressive, and genre bending music that seeks to tell a story. The album features Pranjal Tiwari (S.C.R.A.M.) on drums and lead vocals, Nathan A. Verrill (Terebellum, Fyrhtu) on guitars and backing vocals, and Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Terebellum, Hammers Of Misfortune, Fyrhtu) playing bass and providing additional vocals.
The follow-up to their Svart Records-released 2016 album Cast Away Souls, CARDINAL WYRM‘s Devotionals was recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (Necrot, Vastum, Brainoil) and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Sunn O))), Vastum). The album is completed with cover artwork by Kim Holm, photography by Michael Thorn and Amy Oshit, and layout/design by Shelby Lermo.
