Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 178

What may be an endurance contest for some listeners is intriguing and exciting to others. This week we “hang on a loosely” to a synth/prog foundation with a few other things that fit closely within to create a trance like musical state of meditation, audible story lines and things that break the mold of most modern day music structure and formatting. Louder is better!

Monuments in Ruin, Ch. 177

This week we will dig into what could be called the Art Rock or No Wave scene. For me , it is simply the world of non-traditional song structures and sounds. This is a wonderful environment to wander through. If this is new to you, hang on for the ride. If this is familiar ground, i hope you enjoy the view while we travel it together!
