Jonathan Sharp : Niavka

Jonathan Sharp has been busy the last several years putting out next level, Gothic-tinged records as The Heartwood Institute. Hazy, dreamy, and eliciting sonic tales of witchcraft(The Witchcraft Murders) and dystopian worlds(check out the collaborative Concrete Island with HAWKSMOOR), Jonathan Sharp seems to never not be readying a new electronic delight for our ears. NIAVKA […]

Repeated Viewing : The Family

Leave it to the maestro Alan Sinclair to elevate us all with a sickly sinister slab of synth. As Repeated Viewing, Sinclair has created a vast library of imagined scores to films that seem to have been torn from my own twisted imagination.

Though the music varies from sweat-inducing panic to almost […]

Yves Malone : Immortal Death

The musical world of Yves Malone is a dark and slinky one. Heavy synth music with touches of Giallo, 80s slasher scores, and dystopian electronic that brings to mind late night viewings and 80s tube TV video game adventures. If you grew up on NES, USA Up All Night, and caffeinated Friday nights with video […]

Alone 1980 : Lost Cues II

Whilst in the midst of being down and out with Covid-19 back in November I watched a lot of movies. It was a great way to pass the time and took my mind off of feeling terrible. One of the movies I watched was Nobuhiko Obayashi’s House from 1977. It was one of those movies […]

Alone 1980 : Night Lights

The latest from Sweden’s Alone 1980 isn’t short on dread and Gothic doom. It seems to dig into the macabre and things that go bump in the night in a visceral and melancholy way. Given what we saw in the US just last week in the nation’s capital, I think this is the soundtrack we […]
