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..
cdatakill ☂ Strange Fruit
~Spiraling stairs of a collapsing mind~
Today I bring you a beautifully haunting breakcore rework of the lovely and timeless song “Strange Fruit” by Billie Holiday. It starts off with a beautiful blurry piano section and transitions into more of a down-tempo/trip hop kindof style. The breaks cdatakill brings in this song are so blisteringly fast they serve more as fractured violent textures than rhythms. The song comes off cdatakill’s Original Evil part 2 album, he always tends to make albums feel more like a journey or a film score; something that feels more like a full experience. There tends to be lengthy stretches of ambient/soft textures followed by overwhelming breaks with production that only makes the experience feel that much more colossal. Definitely worth checking out.
If you dig darker shades of breakcore, ambient, downtempo or dubstep. definitely go check out more of cdatakill’s catalog on his bandcamp or soundcloud
BATALJ ☂ Doppelganger
~The effects of eating poisonous plants~
I’m really stoked to be posting this band that I’ve been enthralled with the past month or so called BATALJ, the band is an experimental noise rock trio from Berlin with style connotations towards spazzy synth heavy grindcore acts.
The band has a new release coming in June and this track is on it. If this track is any indication of the quality of that release then it should be pretty fuckin fantastic. Really colorful sounding grating vocals with dissonant guitars and synths and pummeling rhythms that deliver a beautiful auditory punishment.
Check out this neat video of the track with marble-less xtians doing their thing
Go grab their stuff on bandcamp, if you’re into this raw inspired visceral music like this you should love this band.
Phantom Love ☂ A1 - Lotus
~Cathedrals Burn in Raindbow Flames~
Take some time to absorb the dark sexy instrumental synth work of Phantom Love
Fleeting Joys ☂ Kiss A Girl In Black
~Peering Off Into The Rainy Forever~
Most accurate summary of Shoegaze music ever..
“Swirling guitars… layers of noise… drugged out soft male and female vocals going back and forth… sounding like partlove, part death, part hope, part sadness. It’s as if they’ve turned their instruments into liquid and poured them into your ears.”
Kwala ☂ Aint No Thang
~Deep sea lap-dance~
In an effort to get more posted on here each week I think I’m gonna stop typing spastic visual nonsense. That being said, check out a track from the recent Kwala Lakebed EP.
Accompanying this track today is an entire “Visual Album” entitled Cosmic Village which was scored by Kwala and shot by Jacob Williams, its pretty rad.
Former Selves ☂ Kindred Spirit
I’m sick as a dog today so I’ll make this fast. This album and a psychill compilation called Butterfly Dawn are the only thing that will get me through this day without going nuts with discomfort. I’ve been a fan of Former Selves for a little under a year now I think, I absolutely adore the brilliant spiritual tranquility of his sound.
This entire album entitled Calico Sunset is like wrapping yourself in a thick blanket of dim glowing sunshine. The piano really gives it a cinematic score-like quality too as opposed to a driving ambient drone or something.
The whole record is really worth sinking your teeth into or AT LEAST sleeping to.
Go and Download the album for a price of your choosing. Oh, and send me surefire home remedies for intensely vicious colds <3
Weed Priest ☂ Erichtho
~Rituals for the Harvest~
I most certainly would’ve posted this tomorrow as it is a relevant holiday for some, however I am from Colorado so… I’m sure you can guess what I will be off doing.
Check out the spectacular doom sounds of Ireland’s Weed Priest, this gargantuan astral colossus of a band breathes a smokey psychedelic tapestry that is as catchy and colorful as it cold, abrasive and grey. These druids of doom’s self titled release has to be one of the finest Doom/Stoner metal releases in the last few years at least. If you dig cosmic metal psychedelia then this band is very much worth your time.
Check out the rest of the album on the Weed Priest bandcamp and buy the amazing little sucker for roughly $4.50. AND since it’s this little stoners birthday next week; feel free to buy me a Weed Priest shirt and one for yourself as well. Happy holidays _\|/_
