Instrumental

Fairly self-explanatory, but for those who need me to say it, well, it’s music without vocals/lyrics. Music of any genre can be instrumental.

BONK (YOU GOT BONKED) // WRONG WAY – Starship Amazing

Try not to giggle when you push play. That’s pretty much all I can say. Oh wait, the second track doesn’t make me giggle. It makes me think deeper thoughts and feel stuff. What the fuuuuu… ... Read more

Pilgrimage – EP

This album by Pilgrimage is creative and engaging music in the progressive/hardcore vein…and it’s done very well. It’s raucous and emotive, and totally chock-full of creative riff writing and song structures. No, it’s not a fully instrumental album, despite being tagged as such, but I did that because there’s only vocals on about 20% of […] ... Read more

Lowercase Noises – Marshall

There is a lot of dreamy instrumental music out there. A lot of it is cookie-cutter, bland, and uninspired. THIS IS NOT LIKE THAT. Lowercase Noises is the musical venture of a guy named Andy Othling, who’s self-proclaimed goal is to “play as slow as possible”. I discovered Andy’s music through youtube, where he has […] ...

Drexler – The Coolness EP

If you listen to the first track of this EP and think, “meh, nothing special,” then skip ahead. The tracks “Bang The Drum” and “The Steady Coolness” are fantastic. This is just cool music delivered very well. ... Read more

Zero Bedroom Apartment – EP

Ahhhh…I love instrumental music. ZBA is dreamy, beautiful, and will put you in a trance in a matter of seconds. This gorgeous music was recommended on the page of the band The American Dollar (whose music is unfortunately not free, but is totally worth buying). Zone out with this free release.   ... Read more

Fire Spoken By The Buffalo – Hiatus

I absolutely LOVE albums that sound dirty, grungy, and dark. “Hiatus” lands smack dab in the middle of those descriptors. FSBtB sticks to standard instrumentation (guitars, bass, drums), and thanks to a penchant for reverb and creating sonic space, a great atmospheric sound is the result. Their sound is reminiscent of Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black […] ... Read more

Cloudkicker – ]]][[[

It’s only three songs, but it is every bit as epic and great as his other releases. Chock full of beautifully heavy guitars, head-enveloping atmospheres, and complex grooves. For much of this EP, you may feel like you are riding the high climax of some world changing event…well, if that event is a hurricane or […] ... Read more

Cloudkicker – The Map Is Not The Territory

Here’s another epic release from the instrumental beast that is Cloudkicker. As far as quality, this music speaks for itself. Unpredictability, tension, atmosphere, extreme heaviness…it’s all here. Wish I had more to say, but if I tried, it would just be a bunch of redundant adulation. Enjoy. ... Read more

Glorie – Self-Titled

Nothing like a little mood music…especially if your mood is contemplative, mysterious, and you’re looking for a shady individual behind a decrepit building in the middle of the night. Glorie’s dark instrumentals make your soul wonder if everything will be ok. What do you expect when one of the songs is titled “Music For A […] ... Read more

Luger – Concrete Light

For me, this album starts in one place, and ends up somewhere entirely different. The first track “Monkeys Everywhere” is a raucous rock song with an electro feel to it. It’s loud, raunchy, fun. If you’ve ever heard the band The Big Pink, then you’re in the general ballpark of the sound here. From here, […] ... Read more
