Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 64

This week we celebrate the diversity of music. We will walk the grids of heaviness, fall out of touch with the abstract, expand our minds with the dark beauty of experimentation, erase our boundaries with a unique jazz trio, kneel at the foot of kings as we hear and examine how one of the progressive rock forefathers utilized all of these elements and find the captivation and inspiration in a singer songwriter that has simultaneously unplugged and redirected focus back to the earthly elements that surround us all. Welcome to Chapter 64 of Monuments in Ruin!

Featuring tracks from Sleep, Tarentel, Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Smith-Kull-McPhee, King Crimson and Steve Von Till.

This week we soak in the psychedelic sounds of Mammatus, feel the earth shake from the atomic meltdown of Mogwai and glide across the heavy flood of Pelican. Instrumental jams meet the major icons for an accompaniment of lost heroes. Though this week holds a heartbeat for the delicate sounds, we will witness the heaviness of Light Bearer to take us through to the end. Chapter 61 is available to stream or download now.

Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 54

With the recent loss of two more musical icons over the weekend, a highly charged political environment at hand, uncontrolled wildfires all around the southeastern US and close friends facing internal turmoil as the seasons submit to the oncoming cold, it seems as though the colorful aspects of our world are slowly turning to grey. Although there is a certain element of sadness to it all, in the darkest of times hope, strength and love consistently bring us back together with sharper focus. A world without Leonard Cohen certainly feels like a world without color. In tribute, this week’s episode of Monuments in Ruin honors one of the great storytellers of our time by featuring all black and white album covers and doubles up with a few musical themes to match the current climates. Heaviness is an emotion and we will carry it together.
