Some stuff i've been listening to lately:
Berntholer were a band from Brussels around in the mid 80s. Not really sure how to describe this..., pretty sad / melancholic..., reminds me of This Mortal Coil. Video is weirdly cool - just lots of wandering around among sculpture / environmental art. I find myself repeating this a lot.
Vatican Shadow is the guy from Prurient. Really weird project. Kind of 'meta commentary' of post-9/11 in a Tom Clancy novel / most-wanted Iraqi playing cards / Fox News polemic headline sort of way. Similar to Prurient - pretty dark and brooding..., repetition. Beats that sound like they've been re-recorded several times. Dirty bass line.
Something like gaseous ambient goth pop realms ...reclaimed 80s stock sounds. Reminds me of winter in Berlin. With repeated listens i always go up a volume notch each time. waaaaaah.
Ramleh are probably my favourite 'noise' group / duo. Not really so into the power electronics stuff they did which i find unlistenable, but the Hole in the Heart release is so good. This track is particularly beautiful and usually leaves me pretty exhausted. Perfect tones.
it has a nice late summer evening vibe to it, reminds me of when i used to live in asheville. discovered after reading this review:
i really enjoy thetalkhouse.com where creative people, often musicians, are reviewing music
