Girls in Synthesis “The Mound”

There’s something dark and gritty to the sound of Girls in Synthesis’ “The Mound” it’s a song that explores the sonic territory that really hasn’t been well documented since the heyday of post-punk. With lyrics that reference the occult, and

CLOSENESS “End of the Maze”

In the run of this blog, there have been very few times where I have featured bands that many would consider more in the electronic field. Not because I don’t enjoy it, and not just because I try to focus

True Moon “Sugar”

The quickest way to the heart is through the rib cage, and True Moon’s “Sugar” punches straight through with a driving hook-ridden post-punk that would surely have been a dance hit at The Batcave circa 1983.

Pat Moon “Love Me As I Am”

Might be the first song ever to make it onto the blog without guitar. I know I’m a sell out. Great new track by Portland’s Pat Moon. Entitled “Love Me As I Am” this synthy dreamy, dare I say “pretty”(?)

Mayflower Madame “Self-Seer”

Mayflower Madame is among the crowd of Psych kids these days, who just can’t hide their goth tendencies. Hailing for Norway, MM relies heavily on the drama of Trond Fagernes vocals cresting and peaking through the dense layers of down

Ever leave the room when Soundcloud was playing and come back and it’s actually an amazing song? Well, that’s what happened to me. The Swedish So Many Mammals shared this song “A Downward Angle” just over a year ago via

The Electric West “Death Birds”

The Electric West “Death Birds” is one of the most interesting tracks I’ve heard from the recent reemergence of dark psychedelia. With pounding drums, buzzing, but never shrill guitar this song is about as dark and heavy as you get.

The Ghost Ease “Gemini Rise”

Not exactly known for their harder garage material K Records, put out a new album by The Ghost Ease last September, an interesting combination of heavy garage rock riffing enclosed in gothic trappings. Their video for “Gemini Rise” is an

OCCY “No Mood”

In the John Hughes movie of existence this song would be blaring at a prom. Where the misfits in the corner start dancing by themselves and mumbling the self-negating lyrics to themselves. With the boom of Goth and twang of

Witching Waves “Crystal Cafe”

While still maintaining space in their own home studio, Witching Waves sophomore effort Crystal Cafe finds them a little more polished and angular than their previous effort (2015’s Fear of Falling down). As with the former album the band finds

Witching Waves “The Threat”

New video from Happy Happy Birthday to Me’s Wtiching Waves. The video itself is a macabre nightmare, full of references to classic silent horror movies. The band comes off as a bouncy crunchy post-punk outfit with hooky 70’s death rock
