New week, more metal, short intro. Let’s get to it. WHAT TO HEAR: Getting us underway this week is an early AOTY contender from the heart of the bleak, god-forsaken heart of the Midwest: Locktender’s Friedrich (Moment of Collapse). Built from the ashes of Men As Trees, Locktender’s focus is a narrow but engrossing one, with […]
