Coil - Musick to Play in the Dark Vol. 1


As some of you might know, Peter Christopherson died in his sleep last night at the age of 55. Along with John Balance (also deceased), Christopherson was a founding member of Coil.
This album released in 1999 was the first "proper" Coil album since 1991's Love's Secret Domain, though Balance and Christopherson remained very active during those eight years under other monikers. Departure from early industrial sound into an experimental electronic "moon" music style.

Ye Olde Maids - God Blesses Us, Mother Dresses Us and other recordings


You guys have been wanting this for over a year now and here it is: Ye Olde Maids was a Wes Eisold (Some Girls, Cold Cave) bedroom recording project from 2006-2008 during his transitory phase in between hardcore and synth pop. Eisold only has one hand so this was his first serious attempt at recording music by himself, which results in really low fi, noisy jams of simple chord progression eventually replaced with keyboards and a voice vocoder.
Heartworm reissue with a demo and previously unreleased recordings, some of which would become Cold Cave songs.

Ridiculously amazing soundtrack to one of the most significant movies of the 1990s.
THE FUTURE LOOKED so much better in 1995: an unending cyber-punk world roamed by in-line skates filled with anamorphic sequences and anti-corporate electronica. Anything and everything is meant to be corrupted with a few keystrokes and if that isn't enough, your girlfriend is Angelina Jolie with a pixie haircut and a New Jersey Devils jersey. FUCK YES. Here's your chance to acquaint yourself with this masterpiece if you haven't already:

Or if you have Netflix, it's on their instant queue list.

Coil presents

Black Light District - A Thousand Lights in a Blackened Room


This is an album by Coil released during the mid 90s when they were going through their multiple side-project phase. Very minimal ambient and droney electronic soundscapes that foreshadowed their later "moon music" phase. The name Black Light District is taken from a track by Boyd Rice recorded for the Bethel cassette out by John Balance on his Hearsay And Heresy label in 1984.

If the light takes us

Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

The Body - All the Waters of the Earth Shall Turn to Blood


Not a very good band name but a pretty damn good record. Two piece Providence, RI fucked up doom metal: shrieked vocals, odd sampling, backed by a choir. In a year that's been so over saturated with Sabbath influenced amplifier worship, this is a real standout album.

Genocide Organ - Leichenlinie


1989 German industrial/power electronics. 2009 reissue with two extra tracks.

Drunkest in the flood.

Some Girls - Live at the BBC


Before Wes Eisold fronted a New Order tribute band, before Justin Pearson jumped the electro rave bandwagon, before Rob Moran joined a castrated Botch, before Chuck Rowell decided he was going to be straight and start a Jesus and Mary Chain rip-off band THERE WAS SOME GIRLS: a San Diego five piece taking influence from all over the musical spectrum to create their boundary pushing hardcore.
Hot damn, I'm stoked that this has finally been "released" after four years. Features a never released track titled "Get Off The Dove."

Black Sabbath - Master Of Reality


Smoke weed; praise Jesus.
