  • Ukrainian electronic/minimal wave/synthpop artist from Dnipro, Sonichka Detka [сонічка дєтка] feat Kurs Valüt – ‘Kolyskova’                                                                                                                                                     
Disturbingly sweet minimal synth collaboration between composer/singer/performer Sonichka Detka and fellow EBM/synthpop act Kurs Valüt. A repetitive sinister bassline sequence shatters the surface of playful charm, wavering around a restrained, simmering childlike female vocals that unfurl and tease a sweet yet eerie lullaby pierced by icily glistening, uncanny xylophone chimes.
  • New York and Toronto based goth dark ambient cinematic electronic collaborative music project of Crystal Casey and Joseph Beaty, Peeking Through The Noise “Devoured” from the upcoming debut album “Skeleton Keys”

First tantalizing preview for the dark atmospheric electronic duo PTTN with eerie subaquatic textures that swell around brittle haunting piano melodies and sparse, thumping beats to build ruthless tension for the vulnerable, excruciating dual male/female vocals layering soft echoing gasps of agony and ecstasy into the slow burn of primal passions.

  • Portland-based post-punk band SOFT KILL – “Roses All Around” first single from upcoming LP “Dead Kids, R.I.P. City” out November 20th, 2020 on Cercle Social Records                                                                              
Track one from the upcoming “Dead Kids, R.I.P City” LP explores addiction and the manic experience of chasing a drug high through the city streets by a distressed news reporter’s voice sample fading into sad, enveloping bright synth swathes mixed with scattered dry beats and soft-spoken, melancholic male vocals joined by an upbeat choral back up chant and bittersweet gleaming guitar melodies, embellishing the delusional thought process with “Roses All Around.” Portland crew keep on deftly carving their increasingly contemplative and cinematic heartfelt brand of doomy post-punk, more resonant and moving than ever.
