VANIISH - “Merge”
Vaniish is a great project from the brains of Veil Veil Vanish. I really enjoy this track especially because it is fun to dance to and really embodies the type of goth rock that I like. I am not the biggest fan of goth rock so when one breaks through the thick wall of industrial sheet metal that I put up with the blackest of metal thorns it is really a great thing! “Merge” is my favorite track and something that I pump in the car on the way to gath night! I suggest this for fans of All Gone Dead, The Church, and The Exploding Boy. Also I would loosely suggest to fans of Placebo if anything just for sexiness.
Youth Code - “For I Am Cursed”
Youth Code (of course!) has been all over the place in the last few months and rightfully so! I have seen them only once and it was one of the best live shows that I have ever seen. The new EP and An Overture recently came out and it is, again of fucking course, awesome! One of my favorite tracks from the new set of songs is “For I am Cursed.” This track is epic in every way and really hits me right in those dancing shoes! I like everything about this track, it has a really nice build up and break down towards the end and a great catchy hook. I would suggest this to EVERYONE!
Fake Snake - “Toxic Wave“
Fake Snake is a power electronics group hailing from Tempe, Arizona. Their song “Toxic Wave” is off of their album Fake As Fuck, which melts together rolling droning synths and pounding distorted drum tracks. I particularly like the track “Toxic Wave” because it melds these noisy abrasive elements in a wave that flows almost into a witchy sort of groove, blending heavily distorted screaming with a rolling, drippy bassline that pulls you along through the tightly controlled chaos of the percussive elements.
Rural Alberta Advantage - "45/33"
Rural Alberta Advantage is a band that tends to sit in my Sad Bastard Music playlists; their well-written lyrics are sung with a sense of sadness that I have a hard time finding in industrial music. The progressions are melancholic, and it ends on an epic note that brings me over the edge; it makes me feel and that’s all I ask from it.
