Evil Wicked Desire from GHXST.

Every now and then you need to crush out with Jesus And Mary Chain inspired deathrock shoegaze fuzz. Today is one of those days. 

Here then is GHXST. Its loud and buzzy and industrial at points and has lots of feedback and guitars and echoing vocals. Sexy and dark, lost nights in blurred out towns. Slow and low, distortion and reverb. 
silk stockings, blood and candle light, smoke machines and red lights, the dessert as a concept, driving forever. The dark of motels. The roar of a guitar in pain.

There are two EPs and an album. Everything is great. Go to Bandcamp for more.

A Walk In Central Park by Alpha Couple

Police Academy 6!!!

Police Academy 6 create all the beauty and atmospherics of a sound that is best labelled Chillwave, its ambient and warm and soulful, a slow downbeat, a sleepy House feel that drifts on pink clouds of cotton candy through the outer reaches of imagined memory recalling a nostalgic glow and happy mode that needs to eb returned to but never existed. Chillwave sounds are amazing, maybe the reason for peoples conceptual aversion comes from them not thinking this is cutting edge.. I know its now the end of 2011 but damn it still is. It's just the world of Blogs has the attention-span of an ADHD goldfish.
Police Academy 6 has an album out and available to download for $5 from Bandcamp. Called simple Police Academy 6 its a huge collaborative project and features everyone from Raw Moans to Lester Brown. Go get it now.

Konnichiwa - Visions in the Dark


Tash Willmore is truly a special artist and with only 24 listeners so far you guys are really missing out. This is someone making the kind of thing you'll be listening to next year. A sound blended from all the best parts of the sonic landscape at this moment without being Zeitgeist like, without making something throw away. This is qualiyu dance music that licks the corners off Witch House, snorts the chopped up VHS of Chillwave, gurns its way through "Post Trance" and gobbles up what's left of ambient post dubstep, all the while leaving a healthy layer of tropical 8bit and bass heavy drone everywhere. Star eyes and space sounds for 2012. Go download the new three track EP "INVOCATION OF the NEON SPIRITS" for it is truly the eyes of god!

Boys Of Paradise -by Unicorn Kid.

Audrey Hørne becomes Special Darkness

Audrey Hørne has upped and changed names to "Special Darkness" and has a new EP out later this month called "Far From Home." This is Witch House but sparkly, there's a lot of the same sounds everyone is using but its got a nice twist to it. The track "Owner" is especially nice. There's nothing wrong with a lot of bands and artists sounding the same within dance music, that's what defines a genre, but with say drum & bass or dubstep there is a point to sameness in that it helps give a cohesion to a set.. now with Witch House there is very little that can actually be DJed out in a club and I should know I've repeatedly tried, so the cohesion of sound across artists for me at least starts to become ear filler, maybe its time for everyone to stop using pre-set beat sounds and over-driven synth sounds..

Physical Therapy makes me No Age...

Weird connections and non connections.. in a world where consumerism permeates all and we turn ourselves into products and consumers, marketplaces and sales people ad infinitum the old ways no longer break through our horny hides and we need new ways to get noticed. It is a world where bands now need subterfuge websites and self concious aversions to publicity, success by obscurity, selling the brand by hiding it deep.

In this world in which we now find ourselves let me introduce two such websites by two quite different bands. The first is Physical Therapy: while working perfectly as a website, with links hidden at the bottom of the page to YouTube and Soundcloud, their site at first glance seems to be a total accidental redirection... that's why you stay that's why you keep on and that's why you get hooked.. no its not a health spa fitness spam site!
Go visit! 

Sleep ∞ Over - Casual Diamond (Physical Therapy Remix) by PHYSICAL THERAPY

The second website is under construction for the band No Age.. again taking the health and fitness root "Power Nutrition Supplements, Designed for SuperHealth" their play on their name slip from new age to No Age takes the twist that much further with a line of health supplements coming soon.. for real! Go visit the No Age site.

Greatest club night ever.

I wanna start a club night that combines the themes summed up by these two videos, in terms of both visuals and music who wants in?

SALEM - King Night video

MICHΔEL MYERZ - Nightmare From The 90's

"MICHΔEL MYERZ is the Nightmare From The 90’s. Michael Schwartz is the body that MYERZ uses to spread his words of terror. One day in Michael’s room, MICHΔEL MYERZ used his powers to take over his host’s body and record an album, a message if you may, of how he is the NIGHTMARE FROM THE 90’s. This is a battle between good and evil, hate and love and mostly a battle between oneself. What will happen? Listen and find out…"

Swag rap, landlocked seapunk, 90s awkward nerdcore rap.

MIL3¥ $3RI•VS - next level #SEAPUNK

As the #seapunk meme revolution swims quietly along offshore summoning the spirit of Point Break and Free Willy through the careful alignment of giant salt crystals we encounter another mermaid bothering artist wading into the ocean spirit world. MIL3¥ $3RI•VS makes some awesome sounds, back to the the 90s filtered through the swimming pool of eternity. 

"The thematic birth child of Chillwave fucking a Steampunk convention, Seapunk sounds are more 90s than Will Smith slotting a Compact Disc into his Sony Discman while wearing a "save the whales" t.shirt."

Keeping with the specific seapunk meme MIL3¥ $3RI•VS has created a brilliant 90s drag jam that duets with dolphins, real life dolphins singing along, waves and seagulls doing their thing too its called Follow The Sun and it slays better than Japanese whaling fleet; sending a harpoon of love straight at your cetacean heart. Go download it for free now from Soundcloud along with all the other tracks up there including the killer Pinkhair Summer Mixtape below.

Amazing video Directed by "a nice idea every day"

▲WI╪CHBØØK▲ Presents COVENFVCK - Compilation of the year!!

WI╪CHBØØK is a massive Facebook group dedicated to what others could call Witch House, it's a very insular and sometimes annoying group that is constantly updated with hundreds of posts everyday, due to this I don't go there much. But what ever you might think they have just got together and created maybe the most awesome compilation imaginable, as a label they have released a whole bunch of stuff already but this comp is pretty much the definitive collection of Witch House/Grave Wave/Nu Goth artists on the internet! 

COVENFUCK is first and foremost a mixtape by Mike Textbeak but it is also a collection of 86 amazing heavy duty awesome bands and artists you will probably not have heard of. 

The mixed version available in sections to download from here, here and here. Look for the physical release of this mix featuring bonus tracks/materials in 2012 on the label Black Lodge Music. "This mix is dedicated to the memory of Antonio Urdiales aka ijĒŞǙŞ ҚĦŖiŞŢ aka PONYBOY"

This is just an immense dark synth Witchian compilation of more artists than you can hope to discover normally. Go listen to it all and download and buy etc cos you cannot be disappointed!!! COMPILATION OF 2011.

The Tropocalypse is nigh!

After We Jump...

You know its true, Chillwave bands know no geographical boundaries, they don't even need a coastline! After We Jump is an artist from Switzerland making really quality sounds with a proper production level behind them, the video here as well is the first I think I've seen where its not just stock footage and a thousand lens flares. There's an EP coming out this Autumn. Look out for it.

Divine Light Vehicle's Bukkake Is A Feeling.

Pictureplane's Real Is a Feeling is excellent beyond hype, but this cover and reworking by the awesome #seapunk bating M¥rrĦ Ka Ba is something I totally missed when it came out 2 months ago. Re-tilted to the genius "Bukkake Is A Feeling" it is a just as funny and insanely brilliant as the Kreayshawn/Witch House cover M¥rrĦ Ka Ba created a few months ago re-titled "1big br00m full a blk witchez"

CRIM3S live at Plan B yesterday!


Here's the new Crim3s track, or well their first since changing names form Story Of Isaac. This is a pounder of a track, buzzing intense and fully vocal covered, echoing rooms of heavy vibes and fog. The lyrics are pretty much killer as well.

Britney Spears- one Hot Blonde drag and roll mix

You could see it as lame and out of date but this drag remix of Britney falls the right side of kitch and classic, after all the song is now retro so its kind of school nostalgia.. also its sounds really great here, all slow and R&B sexy and slow, a deep male voice crooning like something Azari and III would do! - ▲ßRi†/\/€Y▲ by Hot Blonde, some dude from the UK. Download it and two more great tracks for free from Soundcloud.

Interesting links to follow up:

Just some stuff you should be aware off:

Flickr site of the artist Woodcum -superb weird collage and photoshopped stuff, really good. Everything looks like a great album cover.

Witch House inspired artwork from Cornelia Van Rijswijk a student at London College of Communication studying Graphic and Media Design. Again really great images, videos etc. Check out the blog.

Teehn Bwitches - Free download.

Teehn Bwitches has gone and killed it again with another great track uploaded recently to his Soundcloud. Called Badd it is a "bewitched eurotrance" slammer, all nervous synths stabs and buzzing, high tempo chaos on the dance floor, overdriven and rampant. Go download for free here.

YES - Tropocalypse

Travelsex video for Maria and the Mirrors.

That happy place when music and video work in perfect tandem; Maria And The Mirrors - Travelsex. An intense acid fuelled sex orgy of a visualised sound, the flesh equivalent of a strobe light, the hard crystalline wedge of deep prog trance juice squeezed through the thighs of the mothership into the waiting mouth of time. Thrash you mind.


"CVLT CLASSICS begun in 1981 in an island off the shore of Belize as a cult. 
The cult has been living there isolated. The only contact with the outside world were the drug boats that used the camp to refuel on their way to Miami. We traded tapes for gas and we grew on 80s and early 90s, cocaine-fuelled, cheap music. 
We are now trying to increase our numbers, reach more souls and expand our faith. Through music we are going to gain our followers. We have produced our first introductory mixtape, let the pagan rituals begin:" Download at Soundcloud.

Slow Magic - chillwave's eternal summer

Remember its always summer somewhere, the eternal Chillwave sound breaks and crests, running up the valleys and over the beaches, through the towns and cities of another land only to peak and fall back, another town, another beach onward into the past, into the future, anywhere but here, strain your eyes and look to the west, that last glimpse of sunlight peaking over the horizon has a gleam of a surf board in it, a glimpse of a teenage dream, a beach party, a first kiss, the waves of love and innocence, cresting across the globe, warm and glowing in the heat of a new day, somewhere out there it is always summer.

Slow Magic has a three track EP called ▲ on Bandcamp, it is everything you would expect and that's what makes it great.

Death Of Abel - free downloads.

Another Neo Folk artist today! Death of Abel is the side-project of Luca Morte. He is also known as the singer of the New Wave/Goth Band Die Selektion. This is more visceral than King Dude, more angst ridden and close, elements of post punk filter through now and then to this German language artist, electronic sounds grating but working in perfectly. Songs for earnest young men wondering the hilltops shouting at clouds and rolling naked in wild flowers. Go to the Soundcloud page to download a bunch of great songs for free.
