Just a little something scary I cooked up for Halloween or Samhain,  its' pagan name, focusing on   artists who had been in Throbbing Gristle, and their associates. Throbbing Gristle split in half, yielding Chris & Cosey (Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti), and Psychic TV (Genesis P-Orridge and Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson). In 1984 Christopherson split off from PTV taking with him Geoff Rushton, aka John Balance, who became Coil. Current 93 is the group of David Tibet who had been in Psychic TV, and split off at the same time as Sleazy and Geoff. Many Current 93 records feature the members of Coil,  Steven Stapleton of Nurse with Wound,  Boyd Rice and Douglas P. of Death in June. "Terminus" and "The Full Pack", both presented in their full length,  dominate the set. They are Psychic TV at the full peak of their power, and are among the scariest pieces of music ever recorded. Listen to it in the dark.

Download: YESOD by RUMTUM

More than a year old but fuck, I missed it and this is RUMTUM.

Download: CHAM! by マクロスMACROSS 82-99

This is the real-deal vaporwave, a whole album of delicious, fully developed tracks spanning the spectrum of rhythms and  styles encompassed under 'vaporwave', from the glowing jazz of "Lost Without You" to the kawaii-house of "Miss Macross", the trap-hop of "Ash" to the future funk of "Sailor Team", my personal  favorite. So there is a lot of variety to the tracks, yet they are unmistakably vaporwave.  Several guest vocalists add immensely to the collection, most notably Diane Shroomy, and the unidentified vocalist on "Sailor Team".

This is music that will leave a big smile on your face, and it's a free download, so wtf are you waiting for?

Chillwave 2.0: George Clanton's 100% Electronica

George Clanton is the talent behind the vocally driven chillwave pop Mirror Kisses and  vaporwave artist Esprit 空想 100% Electronica is the first album under his own name, and it integrates the approach of his previous incarnations into what may be his final form. The album sounds like the confident and self-assured work  of an artist coming into his own both as a vocalist and producer, ten fully developed songs--all killer/no filler.  From the opening strains of the first track, I had a strong feeling that I was really going to like this album. Catchy, hook-laden and appealing at first listen,  it draws heavily on Eighties new wave and synthpop for inspiration, which perfectly suits Clanton's voice, reminiscent  of Human League singer Phillip Oakley. My personal favorite is "It Makes the Babies Want to Cry". This album is in a class with 2009 classics like Causers of This and Psychic Chasms--the follow-up those artists failed to make, which proves what I've been saying all along; CHILLWAVE'S BACK. Smash that motherfucker (the download button) .
