Kevin Alvarez I have been a fan of Juan Alderete's bass playing since I discovered him with The Mars Volta. His talent takes more center stage with Big Sir's stripped down sound compared.

Alexander Rutz Big sir are more faceted and colorful on this single album then most bands are throughout their whole existance. A beautiful exeample how it is still possible to create imaginative original music in the 2010s. Favorite track: 1 Thousand Petals.
Mew Sick

Mew Sick A fantastic collaboration between two very talented musicians (plus many of their friends). This album is near perfect in all aspects. Adventurous, precise and funky. Great to dance to, or to lose yourself in deep contemplation over. Thanks Lisa and Juan. Favorite track: Be Brave Go On.

Levon Kinsman Connected with a few songs, overall just didn't mesh with it as a whole. Not my cup of tea, but pleasant. Favorite track: The Ladder.
