The Sonograph EP

Acuarela

I’m not sure how I ended up with this EP. From what information I’ve been able to glean, The Sonograph is a Spain-only release. I don’t know what kind of a Spanish following we’ve got here at Ink 19 that would merit us receiving import promos, but I’m not complaining. This is top-notch progressive alt-country all the way. It opens with “Albatross” and “Perish Room.” These songs are slow, somber and pensive, but they never give in to brooding or self-pity. The instrumental tracks “Bijou,” “Mosaic II” and “Misrach” are all exquisite slices of backwoods experimentalism, strewn across summer evening and deep space palettes. Yep, I’m thoroughly impressed.

Lily and Generoso review Hold Me Tight, the sixth feature directed by renowned actor Mathieu Amalric. Centered around a brilliant performance from Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island), Hold Me Tight is an unpredictable and remarkable psychological drama.
