This Toilet Tuesday (6/13/23)


The blanchéd bench doth call to us all. This week we’ve got top-hat prog, dummy death/doom, and a band giving Nile a lesson in run-on sentences (and psychedelic surf rock). Are you ready to plunge beneath the surface?

The Mosaic Window – Plight of Acceptance (Independent) [Blackened Death]

The Mosaic Window’s blackened death eschews the bloated run-times and monochrome riffing that plague the genre—an impressive feat for a first LP, and especially for a solo act. (Maybe the sole member is an editor with a modicum of self-control?) From the tech death-adjacent riffs in “The Haunting That Follows” to the dissonant, infernal blare of trumpets in “Furnace”, surprises abound throughout this multifaceted glass. -Roldy
