Ritualz: Ghetto Ass Witch

WOW! So the new †‡† EP dropped today and its called Ghetto Ass Witch! He seems to have dropped the complex spelling and moved to the phonetic spelling of Ritualz for EP number two and wow is this a good EP, I've been going through it today a lot and it kills, this is next gen †‡†. Hip-Hop Trance Witch House, that is just total 2011. This is not only the genres future its pops future too, Ritualz should be all over producing the 3rd Gaga album, hey Ritualz should be producing the next Rihanna album this is just too good for the world to miss. Just listen to it! So layered and rich and bouncy, dark as hell at points but tracks like Baba Vanga are just so groove filled and evil in the most dirty sounding way! Its got percussion on it too not just grinding trance synths and pre-set handclaps. Then tracks like Big Magick Hustlas take thigns another way entirely and shit all over Salems album.. objectively (if I can be!) this is a better album, I say album 'cos its eight tracks long that's only two under King Night's length. I need to have a club night up and running again to play these tracks out! Tracks like "Third Eye Sixth Sense" with its percussive droning start chanted and buzzing which rises to a fuzzed out beat and layered cacophonous noise until a minute and a half in where it drops all that out and the sound bounces forth clear and dancey, with an electro groove of epic proportions then blam the distorted synths come back in and everything rolls on like a castle collapsing down the side of a mountain. Oh and then you have the amazing final track "Star Magick" that is pure Black Metal via the medium of Witch House style Gabba..! No really, fucking listen to that track and weep tears of dust!
This is an awesome EP that rivals anything out there within the Witch House genre and nicely lifts up and out of it to easily rival bands like Salem, Crystal Castles and the like. Go buy the EP now!




BORN THIS WAY!



FUCK! TOTAL PROG-POP CRAZYNESS! THE NEW GAGA VIDEO COMES OUT AND WE HAVE THE NEW RITUALZ EP "GHETTO ASS WITCH" OUT ON THE SAME DAY TOO!!!
And come on, like giant alien mother goddesses with crystal thrones orbiting in space, neon pink inverted triangles, total face tattoos and body mods, and riding a unicorn.. what's not to like!!

Fear Of Men - free download.

Free track from Fear Of Men called Phantom Limb. Get oit form their Bandcamp here. Pre order their limited edition cassette EP from Sex Is Disgusting here.



Mater Suspiria Vision - MANIA (Demo 2011)

Mater Suspiria Vision have embarked on 2011 with a new vigour producing new tracks like this latest one - MANIA (Demo 2011)
There's a subtle new feel to the tracks with more dirging synth and less of the thousand yard echo and repeat that clouds things into a hypnogogic fog. This is a more defined or refined sound as you would expect after 2010 saw them produce literally days worth of tracks and footage.
MANIA almost bounces along at points, awash with buzzes, wails, and deep repeating synth notes that caress the cerebellum like driller killer.

BL§§D ØU† -

So Alex from BL§§D ØU† has made a great mixtape called "Destroy MP3s" get it over at dis Magazine
Pretty much everything on it is an exclusive, It features a lot of original remixes BL§§D ØU† have made recently under the pseudonym EEEE, and also includes a demo from forthcoming BL§§D ØU†/Ritualz rave project, which samples up Britney's Hold it Against Me and turns it into some awesome epic trance doom shit! Also some demos from Ritualz next release, and a song by dump.fm creator Ryder Ripps as well as fine artist Ryan Trecartin. Plus Hold it Against Me gets mixed with the theme to Mortal Kombat.
This is a really brilliant mix not your usual Witch House noize and yawn fest.

Yes! Yes! Extra Loveable video

Yes! Yes! - Extra Loveable - Dir : S∆bre'Too†h from S∆bre'Too†h on Vimeo.

No idea who the band is but boobs in a shower, a sexy lips overlay and a vocal that sounds like Prince after a sex change! What more could you want? ...what you want Witch house spelling and symbols, well whoever the director is they spell their name Witch House styley, so all's good!

$LØW HE▲D / RΛINИIΛЯ split cassette

Introspective Witch House artist o F F has a limited tape EP out with Clan Destine Records called Disenchanted Fairytale, its is also available as a digital EP from Recorder Records on Bandcamp here.

"Born as a broken heart mixing his love for slow dance music, RnB inspired borken beats and fragile and repetitive autotuned voices.
o F F throbs sharp beats, dusty melodies and melancholic fragrances into a luminescent grey sadness.
Disenchanted Fairytales vocodes introspective torments upon organic slomo lost tracks as 'Cinderella' realises the charming prince might not be real."

Odd Future on Jimmy Fallon...


SHIT JUST GOT REAL!
THE MOST AMAZING PERFORMANCE, PRETTY MUCH THE PERFECT INTRODUCTION OF THEM TO THE WORLD AT LARGE.
AND MOS DEF SHOUTING SWAG INTO THE LENS REPEATEDLY AT THE END -BRILLIANT!
OH AND THE WITCH HOUSE STYLE GIRL LURKING BEHIND THEM IS ACE!

Darlings.



Unabashedly fun garage rockers Darlings have announced the release of their Warma EP via Famous Class Records on the 15th March. These dudes are from New York and hey I actually like them, even though its been heard before its good lo-fi pop with all the right bits that make it worth a listen and some nice bits of screeching feedback and harmonies and fuzz and hooks. Cool.

Bastian only you can save us.. its The Nothing.

This dude Alonzo Wang aka"The Nothing" makes Witch House and Drag music, or at least he does now, even the most cursory glance at his Soundcloud page will show you how much other stuff he makes as well. This is a real musical Jack Of All Trades taking a tentative step into a sound of now.. And its all right, kinda obvious beats but with a nice slightly chillwave/glitchy take on things, but with that Creep, Salem synth drone you probably overly recognise and the usual pre set percussion. Good first try though. There's nothing to download for free though.

Dipset Trance Party Mixtape. In case you missed it.

Dipset Trance Party mixtape released like a month and a half ago and it is just so so good, annoyingly each track fades out too early but other than than it slays! To quote BL§§D ØU† on Twitter a while back “dipset trance party has laid the foundation for grave rave in 2011. speed that shit up, sucker” So good! Cant stop listening to it. Dark dubby trance with all the right sounds and a slow Witchian beat to everything. Hip hop trance remixes. Its just awesome. Grab here.

Born To The Illuminati.

Born To The Illuminati from fokka wolfe on Vimeo.

No one had made one yet so here it is. "Born This Way (Fokkawolfe drag edit)" I also wanted to make a really lo-fi Witch House video with ramped colours and cheap slo-mo before it was totally over done by everyone.. which it nearly is anyway. Sit back and enjoy Born To The Illumiati.

(items in there include:
Real human finger bone skull bead,
Home made GaGa glasses,
Gold painted sheep skull,
Emu egg,
Palmistry charts,
Scarabs,
Real pearls,
Laughing gas canisters,
18th Century candlesticks,
Amethysts and Tigers Eye,
..and lots of other bits)

Clubs For Boardgames: free download.

With a split on Haunted Cassette Tapes coming out soon and this free single up on their Soundcloud Clubs For Boardgames are some deep dubby Witch House stuff, slow prog dub electronica out of New York, late night stoner action, sound waves punching through the green haze. Half glimpsed lights in distant rooms, parties winding down in a fog of poppers empty bottles, the undead walking home on their long journey to their resting place in bed.

Tyler The Creator: video for Yonkers



Such a good video! Tyler eats a roach and hangs himself, all more or less in one shot and in a white void and in black and white. Simple and completely captivating from beginning to end. Track is from Goblin, his first proper album coming out in April.

BL§§D ØU† and †‡† remixes.

It's February, its dark and there is a fresh Witch House resurgence afoot, dragging things forward into 2011 by the skin of its horns. Mater Suspiria Vision are back in full release mode dropping more videos and releases than can be blogged about in time, and everywhere collaborations are springing forth. In anticipation of one such collaboration a split cdr between BL§§D ØU† and †‡† coming soon on Phantasma Records here are their respective remixes of the new Mater Suspiria Vision release Crack Busting Angels.
First BL§§D ØU†'s remix, the "Teen Girl Death Rave Edit"

KYNAN amazing Purple Rain cover.

I discovered KYNAN through the brilliant verb/re/verb blog's "Youth Mixtape" of which "The goal of this mixtape has been to illuminate the young talent, each artist being below 18, about to enter adulthood, but with far more innovation and introspection than most with more years to tally on. Each of the 9 artists chose a song to cover that they listened to as children, each with an incomparable interpretation of songs that very much so shaped their childhoods." (download here.)
Kynan covers Prince's Purple Rain and totally owns it, turning it into some kind of blissed out chillwave pop thing, slowed down and just gorgeous. So good, better than the original. Killer.
Only thing I know is this is someone from San Diego. Go download his "Try harder (January Mix)" from Bandcamp now. And get the Prince cover here.

BL§§D ØU† - 3MPIR3 §†Å†3

Blissed Out released their debut full length, 3MPIR3 §†Å†3 digitally on the first of this month, with a limited vinyl pressing of 500 LPs coming next week. There is also a video for the song //Myrtle//Wyckoff// off of 3MPIR3. The video was directed by Sterling Crispin, the director of such noted videos as Pictureplane's Goth Star. Also go check out their Tumblr for the album here.
Also, if you are lucky enough to be in New York City on Thursday, February 3, we will be celebrating this release with a rare live performance at Santos Party House with White Ring and Von Haze plus a DJ set by Pictureplane and visuals by Ryder RIpps of Dump.fm.
Well cool!

Myspace will eat your band..

Okay bands seriously now just delete your Myspace accounts and set up Facebook accounts, Soundcloud and Bandcamp pages, maybe a site if you can be bothered but there's no need those three are good enough.
The only good thing about Myspace now is it taps in at the top in the Google searches.. but whats the point of people visiting your page, its hard to link out from it, all the pictures are now tiny and shit, you cant customise things like you used to and everyone just switches off if they have to look at a Myspace page now anyway, you are almost driving fans away from your band by having one! As soon as you fully delete your account your bands Facebook/Soundcloud/Bandcamp page will appear at the top of any search engines list and people can find you like that.
Do it now, I'm starting to not blog bands that use Myspace as their main internet location.. you just seem like you're not serious.

The Codeine Dreams of Spunk House Forest (Video Edit)

MADAME O & IHRE KOPFFILM BANDE - The Codeine Dreams of Spunk House Forest (Video Edit) from Cosmotropia de Xam presents on Vimeo.

Ricky Eat Acid - Only Girl (In The World)

Ricky Eat Acid has gone and remixed Only Girl (In The World) by Rihanna sort of but like not as well. All lesbian connotations, juicy rumours etc aside this track is a little insectoid jewel of a track that inserts itself into your brain and runs off pulling the pin as it does so. Free to download from Soundcloud.

Warm Hands cold bloody aorta.


I like this band Warm Hands from Portland they have a bunch of stuff out on Clandestine Records and a new split cassette and zine with Petra Schelm coming soon. Its atmospheric post rock ambience and occultism, darkly gothic candle lit stuff, beautiful and spacey and interestingly guitar led and so slow and empty that it almost feels like the band are dissipating as you listen. Their blog is here.
