Heavy Metal

On the Canadian-Asian collective's third LP, they hit a magical sweet spot with an ambitious epic that combines Native American mythology, Buddhism, anime, psych rock, prog metal, and apocalyptic sci-fi grandeur. It's a doozy of a concept and a sonic journey not to be missed. Try "Yandere," "Hungry Ghost," and "Beast" for a taste of this genre-defying gem.

- Neil Z. Yeung

Alternative/Indie Rock

Full of chunky, guitar-heavy songs, strong melodies, and Silvia Wersig's commanding vocals, the band's debut is a brilliant fusion of the '90s and 2010s that calls to mind the Breeders and Dum Dum Girls in equal amounts.
