[Music] Coil + Zos Kia + Marc Almond – How To Destroy Angels

No, bodiless powers cannot be destroyed, but never mind the theology lesson for now. This release featuring Industrial music icons Coil, Soft Cell frontman Marc Almond and John Gosling (Zos Kia himself). It’s something akin to a holy grail for experimental music fans, and Cold Spring should be lauded for releasing this gem.

[Music] Santiago Fradejas – Electric Guitar Vol. II: Yeshua

Our friend Santiago Fradejas has returned with his most powerful album to date. From what I understand, these soundscapes were all done with an electric guitar. He makes the most out of his weapon of choice, convincingly straddling the terrains of instrumental amplified guitar music, post-Industrial, and a very eerie take on contemporary classical/avant-garde music.

[Music] The Hare And The Moon – The Hare And The Moon

The Hare And The Moon were a folk horror (yes, it’s a genre) band out of Scotland who finally ended their run in early 2017 after a string of astounding discs. This disc seems to be the first one they released in 2009.  Their sound reminds me of early Current 93, especially during the period […]

[Music] Leila Abdul-Rauf – Diminution

The first time I came across San Francisco, California resident Leila Abdul-Rauf’s name was when she was playing with the all-female avant-garde metal/dark ambient band Amber Asylum.  She has become a far more powerful musician as time has passed (if you know anything about her previous work, that’s very high praise), and, given the brutal darkness of […]

[Music] NERATERRÆ – The NHART Demo​[​n​]​s

NERATERRÆ is the dark ambient/drone project of Alessio Antoni.  He graces these pages with a release very much reminiscent of early Lustmørd but made on modern equipment. Though he classifies this under Power Electronics, there’s something more elegant to his compositions than what I normally find in that genre.  This is Power Electronics for the […]

[Music] Various Artists- Heresy Records: A Map Of The Kingdom Of Ireland

Though not as long in the tooth as INA-GRM nor as exotic as the scenes in places like Egypt or Iran, it seems that Ireland has developed a venerable electroacoustic music scene which has spanned over five decades.  This compilation, A Map of the Kingdom of Ireland, a compilation of Irish Electro-Acoustic music featuring works by […]

[Music] Richter Scale – A Ripple on the Richter Scale

In 2008, Legendary Pink Dots members Edward Ka-Spel and The Silverman trekked over to Chile where they made a collaboration of Michel Leroy of Un Festín Sagital, Chile’s finest experimental neofolk group. This hazy, drony, Krauty improvisation is the fruit of their meeting.  Stunningly hypnotic work.
