Im a musician from Denver
What I post will never be the same as the last
Music should never be about what is trendy.
Music should be about what is INSPIRED and ARTFUL.
I urge you to broaden your horizons
and find beauty in something you might not be used to..
DJ Joe Block ☂ Skin Canvas
~trans-oceanic bullet train~
one of the best producers modern instrumental Hip-Hop has to offer <3
BLVCK CEILING ☂ Death
~Hand to her mouth she found their bodies slain in the backyard amidst the blustering leaves, singing birds and storming sky~
A few weeks ago I awoke alone in my house to find the air filled with black smoke and my living room on fire in two places. I put out the fires in sheer adrenalin fueled panic only to realize afterwards that my house had been burglarized and then set ablaze by an unknown individual who remains at large… This song could easily be an anthem for those panicked moments…
If you remember my previous post on BLVCK CEILING about a year and a half ago you may be intrigued to know that since that time this artist has birthed almost 20 bandcamp releases.. Proving himself to be so much more than just some run of the mill witch-house producer.
I’ve always been impressed by BLVCK CEILING's music but his ep entitled G L Y P H S has now become a modern favorite of mine. It really is a stunning dark music achievement filled with drug addled unsettling anthems of fear for those with only the blackest of third eyes.
Check out the rest of G L Y P H S as well as the colossal amount of releases by this prolific dark electronic composer. BLVCK CEILING BANDCAMP
Fogh Depot Anticyclone
Dark jazz: bringing sexy black
I found this act after they followed the Timid Smoke soundcloud.
I cannot tell you how good it feels to have some real deal dark-jazz to post that isnt Kilimanjaro, Mt. Fuji or Bohren and Der Club of Gore.
I give you Fogh Depot, a trio from Moscow, Russia who make brilliantly seductive brooding jazz music with an electronic twist.
"Anticyclone" is the trio’s initial demo but there’s nothing demo-like about this track. "Anticyclone" feels like a massive hedge-maze amidst towering sand dunes of apathetic lust.
Give it a listen; preferably with candles, incense or something smoking, if you dig jazz, trip-hop, dark ambient or chill industrial stuff you should love this.
Lord Dahthar ✸ Rise
~I had a dream, which was more than just a dream. The bright sun was extinguished and the stars wandered, eclipsed in eternal space~
Out of the ashes of the beautifully brutal Colorado Black Metal heavyweights Vision of Mara comes a bright new flame in the CO black metal scene: Lord Dahthar.
The founding member/vocalist and principle songwriter is a friend of mine and I’ve posted his other solo noise/industrial project before but Lord Dahthar marks his return to black metal after 3 years of absence.
Rhythmically the album is fairly minimal, The Tower focuses more on instilling its initial atmosphere of fear and dread using synths and serrated guitar parts and Dahthar's otherworthy vocals which bring a ton to the sound as a whole
Lord Dahthar’s new EP entitled simply The Tower is out and available for streaming/purchase on bandcamp.
Joel St. Julien ☂ VII
~dancing in clouded fluid~
Some really wonderful ambient music for you this afternoon. Go buy Joel St. Julien’s new album entitled Mine on bandcamp now.

PS. Tumblr is really fucking me lately, i no longer have the option to resize inserted images or apparently add hyperlinks to image or texts. Therefor completely screwing up the entire stylistic theme of this blog.
You guys are about to get the most pissed off email, I’ve had enough of this.
Dead Sea ☂ Before We Die
~Dust dances in the sunbeams~
one of my favorite tracks I’ve heard all year so far…
Dead Sea is a shoegaze act from france, this is the only track they have out so far but man is it a memorable one. Not only is it memorable but it’s the kind of song that sticks itself to a fondly bittersweet memory like an industrial grade adhesive. “Before We Die” is about as full of life as a song can get.
If you have dug other bands I’ve posted like Echo Lake or Honeyslide you’ll do well to follow this bands future musical exploits <3
