Does this mean a Winter 2013 release for a new HTRK album? If so, it would be the cherry (or multi-colored sprinkles) on top of an already excellent year in dark music. In the meantime, here’s the video for “Bendin,” directed by Nathan Corbin, from their 2011 album “Work (Work, Work).”
The opening track from Creep’s debut album ‘echoes’ dropping August 13, 2013. Each song features a guest vocalist collaborator, including The xx’s Romy Madley-Croft, Sia, Tricky and Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow). For more CREEP, follow them at:
The Goth scene came my way at a time in my life when I really needed it, and gave me a purpose, some great times, and some wonderful friendships that persist to this day. I think Goth is a truly unique confluence of art, performance, and style, one that resonates in a way other subcultural identities have not. No matter how far I stray sometimes, a piece of my heart will always remain attached to Goth.
“The first official account of the iconic record label.
This Mortal Coil, Birthday Party, Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, Pixies, Throwing Muses, Breeders, Dead Can Dance, Lisa Germano, Kristin Hersh, Belly, Red House Painters.
Just a handful of the bands and artists who started out recording for 4AD, a record label founded by Ivo Watts-Russell and Peter Kent in 1979, a label which went on to be one of the most influential of the modern era.
Combining the unique tastes of Watts-Russell and the striking design aesthetic of Vaughan Oliver, 4AD records were recognisable by their look as much their sound. In this comprehensive account concentrating on the label’s first two decades (up to the point that Watts-Russell left), music journalist Martin Aston explores the fascinating story with unique access to all the key players and pretty much every artist who released a record on 4AD during that time, and to its notoriously reclusive founder.
With a cover designed by Vaughan Oliver this is an essential book for all 4AD fans and anyone who loved the music of that time.”
“Wave upon wave of vocal exhalations echo within swirling colossi of guitar-generated haze. Melodic lines twinkle and blur amidst masses buried beneath thick layers of reverb, tape hiss, and warm overdriven fuzz.” - Projekt Records
“Ten Kens’ Namesake is an unapologetic trance of post-rock meets prog rock with a whole lot thrown in between. Basically, it’s beautiful.” - Dissociative Identity Productions
Did you pick up anything new this week? Anything you think I missed? Let me know!
“This is Tara posting for Lycia. I haven’t even heard the album! Mike is keeping it under type wrap. What I have heard (one unfinished track) is like Stark Corner/Cold moodwise mixed with some solo MV and something wholly new. Vague much, vanflower? LOL I’m as excited as anyone to hear this!!!!”
