Lovac - Apes Of A Cold God


Relatively new stuff through Soleimoon. Lovac is a Swedish neofolk/industrial duo with a contemporary twist. Reminds me of Rome's newer material. Been looking for this since November and it was worth the wait.

Various Artists - Kompakt: Total 3


I have been sick and busy all damn week. Now it is time for some late night/early morning debauchery fueled by a mixture of energy drinks, alcohol, and German electronic dance music. Enjoy!

Cave in

Chelsea Wolfe - The Grime and the Glow


I wasn't going to upload this but I noticed that people have been posting really shitty 128 quality conversions of the AAC files from iTunes. If people are going to pirate this album, it may as well be a decent sounding rip (320 kbps). Nerdy shit aside, this is a fantastic album. My second favorite record of 2010.
Deaf Center - Pale Ravine


Late night ambient drone sesh courtesy of this Norwegian duo.

Yellow Swans - At All Ends


Things have been pretty tame around here lately. Going to slowly take things back up a notch. Here's a sublime drone record to cleanse your palate.

Devine & Statton - The Prince of Wales


Hmm, two poppy female fronted albums back to back? Never thought I'd see the day...
This album had been on my iTunes for over a year when one of the songs came on my shuffle and I had one of those "I can't believe I didn't listen to this sooner" moments. Minimal acoustic duo consisting of the singer from Young Marble Giants (Devine) and the guitarist from Ludus (Statton). Their first of two albums released on legendary Belgian label Les Disques Du Crepuscule. Includes an amazing New Order cover:
