WL//WH Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips # 21

Peaks Of The Week:

  • Berlin-based experimental/dark wave/drone/shoegaze/post-punk new project of Anna Nin (aka None), aka Glaring “Totenfeier”                                                                                                                                                

After the demise of the None alias and an unusual period of inactivity, Anna Nin is back with 3 tracks in a row under her Glaring moniker. “Totenfeier” is a sinister, powerful and evocative instrumental venture into obscure and mysterious vaults made of ominous buzzing bassline, mournful and sinister glassy synth swirls and sensual percussive patterns that sinously penetrate and stimulate our dark senses.

  • Louisville, Kentucky goth/darkwave/post-punk solo project SCARY BLACK “Icarus”                                             

I thought listening to the collection of b-sides by, at the time, quite a mysterious project of Albie Mason, how fuc*** good could be a real A-side…there we go! “Icarus” is a striking aural feast of gothic darkwave splendour.

  • Glasgow, UK indie/goth post-punk 4-piece Current Affairs “Buckle Up” from new 2-track 7″ single “Buckle Up / Worlds In Crisis” on Berlin’s dotx3

Absolutely tasty new 7″ by Glasgow‘s collective with their own distinct brand of goth-tinged jerky, lo-fi post-punk, rifes with ideas, hooks and urgency peppered with a striking DIY attitude.
