Friday Classic Dark is a new feature showcasing some of the acts that inspired the new wave of dark electronic music.
A stellar song by one of Canada’s most intriguing artists. Someone once told me that Nash the Slash had his membership to the musician’s union revoked for using a drum machine instead of a live drummer. I don’t know if that’s true, but he should be considered a hero if it is.
Diamond Rings just released a sweet new single called “Something Else”, and it’s going to be released on vinyl soon. Be sure to watch for his debut album Special Affections, coming out on October 26. We can’t wait to hear it.
Just came across a mixtape that Cosmetics did a month ago for Dazed which shows exactly how well-versed they are in the classics – Suicide, Ruth, Nini Raviolette, and Deux are some of the artists included. Unfortunately, you can’t download it (booo) but you can listen to it encased on the internet. Apparently they’re working on an LP. This pleases us.
Earlier this year, Cosmetics released Sleepwalking/The Cries, one of the best 7-inches of the year. It’s still available for sale here, or if you must, on iTunes.
