Sunday with George: Moses Sumney- græ

Objectively, I’m not sure if you could describe this as a, “happy”, album. That said, Mr. Sumney doesn’t necessarily traffic in that— his last album was called, “aromanticism”, after all. Though these song may not be happy, I expect listeners would be hard pressed to describe them as anything but beautiful. Though sad, they also

Sunday With George: Slayer- South of Heaven

Within metal (and perhaps, within all music) there is something special that happens with, “the album in between.” I’m sure you’re probably reading that, and thinking to yourself, “But what does that mean?

Sunday With George: GZA- Liquid Swords

Full disclosure, I HATED “Liquid Swords”, the first few times I heard it. Sacrilegious, I know.

Sunday With George: Agharta- Miles Davis

Robert Fripp is on record describing Agharta as, “a wallpaper shredder.” In case you don’t know who Mr. Fripp is, or, you’re calling into question his credentials when it comes to using such strong verbiage, please listen to him eviscerate his guitar with casual viciousness on this otherwise pleasant, candy-coated David Bowie pop number. Now,

Sunday with George: Deafheaven- New Bermuda

In Japanese, there is a phrase, “Koi No Yokan.” From what I understand, there isn’t an exact, literal English translation, but if one were to rough it out, they’d get something along the lines of, “premonition of love”. The first time I heard Deafheaven’s music, I felt this. I knew it, wholly. I’d missed, “Sunbather”,
