Serpentine and mercurial, Douleur Fantome channels perfumes and vapes that consumes you with ominously seduction and busts with perpetual obscurity in this delicious darkwave synth punk spell. Beware what you see when you become entranced by the reflection of your glasses.
“Le Reflet de tes Lunettes” is on Douleur Fantome’s 2019 EP, Foi et Travail, available on Bandcamp.
Time to attend a master class in “How To Kill”, a steady gorgeous ballad of symphonic progressive rock with bold poignant impressive instrumental arrangements infused with realized pathos and destiny-defining confessions.
“How To Kill” is the opening track to CIRKUS’s new album, VOODOOLAND, available on Bandcamp.
Spelunk through an ambient futuristic subterranean era, surrounded by the subtle crispy water droplets in tunnel vision, pulses of low frequency void spheres, shocks of noise energy pocket, low hums of sleeping circuitry, and distant sounds of a city lost to time. This experimental electronic improvisation was performed live by Mike Barber entirely on modular synthesizer at a Frequency Freaks event in Toronto, Ontario, in July 2019.
Shamik pulls together an exuberant electronic beat track sweeping and fluttering with the mystic wonders of Bollywood, sampling “Kamma Kara Yoram” by popular Indian playback singers K. S. Chithra and Malaysia Vasudevan, and features new vocals by his sister and Too Attached partner Vivek Shraya.
This track is featured on Shamik’s new album, CI3, available PWYC on Bandcamp.
Gal Gracen excels at stirring devotional pop and does not disappoint with the beautiful “Arcadia”, where lovely percussion is set off by Steve Hackett-style guitars.
Sorta ’70s style blue-eyed soul with a solid foot in the present, “Ousiders” is a hell of a jam.
With an album titled ‘Home Made Satan’ and a band name like chastity, you’d probably by expecting dark metal. Think again. Chastity is an individual singer-songwriter and his works are cleverly composed. Witness “Dead Relatives”, with it’s withering refrain, “there’s a special place in hell for the christian right/bury your parents tonight”.
