It is so tempting to ‘see’ everything under the prism of the challenging times in which we are all living at the moment, so we will resist this and perceive the soundtrack of February as a wintry one which accompanies the long nights and the short days of the year.

Somehow, they all synced, as if they were responding to the same ‘calling’, as if they were following something with the same aura and the same final destination…The playlist of the month could almost be seen as different songs within the same album.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”-Albert Einstein

June was a particularly interesting month in terms of its album releases, the most favourite of which, make a journey from ethereal folk towards doom post-rock.

During this month, I found myself delving more into the condition of ‘post‘ both in music and in art in general. It was actually a definition of ‘the post’, that was provided in one of the numerous student projects at the Architectural Association, combined with a memorable variété/architectural event inside the Hippodrome Casino about post-modern architecture, that enlightened me in such a way that I can now ‘see’ post music with new eyes.


One of the multiple definitions was: ‘A post is a position or a state that defines where or how something or someone has to be, as it was meant to be’. Another one said ‘…a post is a node, a meeting point, a gathering spot. A post is where people converge towards…’.

The releases of Band of Holy Joy, The Membranes, Red Velvet Deception, Vlimmer, The Man&His Failures, BLVCK CEILING, Death’s Head, VOID//GIST, Constant Mongrel, PLAID and Such Beautiful Flowers all tap into different aspects of post music by stressing its ‘heavier’ industrial side, the more emotional coldwave side or even its more vindictive punk side.
