Gothic Singer ELLE NOIR Unveils Her New Video: 'Like A Black Doll'

11th of November 2020, 17:16

Following the heels of her recent video, "The Day I Died," Italian gothic singer ELLE NOIR unveils her latest video - the title track from her upcoming EP, Like A Black Doll.

"Like a Black Doll" is a nightmare with different levels of meaning. At first sight it's the image of a girl who can't react to life, who closes herself in her dark inner world and surrounds herself with things that can't hurt her.

But deep down, the song tells about a traumatic situation of my childhood, which I do not talk about but have been able to elaborate on over the years thanks to music. It is one of the reasons that pushed me to sing, to use my voice and my songs to exorcise my demons."

"My inner worlds are always autobiographical, my songs are always lived in the first person. Death, mental illness and emotional states of discomfort are central themes in my writing. When I write a lyric I always have an image in mind and try to describe it. My lyrics are little narrated and very visual."

Ethereal Darkwave Duo THE PALACE OF TEARS Unveils Debut Album 'Of Ruination'

10th of November 2020, 17:15

Ethereal Darkwave duo THE PALACE OF TEARS has unveiled their new album Of Ruination.

Of Ruination is composed of seven tracks of somber beauty and otherworldly seduction. THE PALACE OF TEARS fuses hypnotic electronics, heavily layered processed guitars and sultry vocals that captivate, creating an ethereal amalgam that transcends boundaries.

The duo’s unique alchemy draws upon musical influences as varied as post-punk, shoegaze, dark ambient, gothic rock, electronica and much more. THE PALACE OF TEARS create their own sonic landscape full of haunting beauty - ghostly - evocative - sensual.

Of Ruination is available now everywhere digitally, soon to be followed by a limited CD edition.

Leah's vocals create a swoon of dream-felt caresses into the heart of the human psyche, weaving and layering lullabies of sensual longing into each moment, while Erick's dense swirl of ghost - layered guitars and atmospheric electronics conjure a sonic spell of aural mist to soothe the listener into its lush ambience.

Of Ruination caters to themes of love, death, and the search for truth in a world filled with grief and the longing for connection. Seven tracks of sonic escapism for the romantics and seekers daring to conjure their own ghosts from within. This body of work may serve as a vehicle for the listener to explore themes of illusion; "Masque L'Intrigue", the dark earthly feminine; "Thy Womb Full of Black Nectar", the pain and confusion of loss; "Shadows of Whispering Phantoms", ethereal bodies and strange entities; "Tears of the Moon", leaving dreams and entering harsh realities; "Of Ruination", and the impermanence of the body and the mind; "Cold Dead Skin", and the journey towards a deepening consciousness.

Today it's 34 years since Kraftwerk release Electric Café!

10th of November 2020, 07:00

Electric Café is the ninth studio album by the electronic group Kraftwerk, originally released on 10th November 1986. In 2009 it was re-released under its original working title, Techno Pop.
The initial 1986 Electric Café came in versions sung in English and German, as well as a limited "Edición Española" release, featuring versions of "Techno Pop" and "Sex Object" with only Spanish lyrics.
It was the first Kraftwerk LP to be created using predominantly digital musical instruments, although the finished product was still recorded onto analog master tapes. The album was recorded with the Emu Emulator II sampler (used previously on "Tour De France" and the demo of "Techno Pop" album) and various contemporary devices including Yamaha FM-engines, a Linn drum, and digital effect processors.

The album is somewhat infamous for taking the band almost half a decade to produce. Work is said to have begun as early as 1982 (with the working titles of Technicolor and then Techno Pop) but the project was delayed due to band member Ralf Hütter suffering a cycling accident and then due to concerns within the band that the production quality of the album was not sufficiently cutting-edge, necessitating much re-work. It is the last Kraftwerk album to feature Wolfgang Flür, who subsequently left the group in 1987.

Two singles were released from the album, "Musique Non-Stop" and "The Telephone Call". Both were accompanied by promotional videos. Though both singles went to #1 on the Billboard dance chart in 1987, neither of the singles performed well in the general pop charts. However, "Music Non-Stop" (based on the later version from The Mix) has been the closing piece of Kraftwerk's concerts since 1991. In the early 1990s, a completely different version of "Musique Non-Stop" – slower and more melodic – was used extensively as a jingle on the MTV Europe channel. Earlier, MTV Europe had already included elements from the original song and the video in the title graphics for MTV's Greatest Hits.

The video for "Musique Non-Stop", created in 1984 and released in 1986, is notable in itself for showcasing a computer animated representation of the band. The animation, which was complex for its time, was created by Rebecca Allen, using state-of-the-art facial animation software developed by the Institute of Technology in New York. The slow rate of the album's progress, combined with rapid changes in software animation, meant that Allen had to archive the animation program developed at the Institute of Technology until Hütter and Schneider were ready in 1986 to travel to New York to edit the images to the final version of "Musique Non-Stop".

Horses | Patti Smith’s Debut Masterpiece 45 Years On!

10th of November 2020, 07:00

“Jesus died for somebody’s sins,
But not mine..”

This day 45 years ago, Patti Smith released her groundbreaking debut album “Horses” (10 November, 1975) and music thankfully was never the same since.

The album went on to become the most influential and important release of the Punk-Rock movement, in fact it is quoted as not just being the album held on the punk-pedestal but one of the true artistic statements in twentieth-century music.

What separates “Horses” from other releases of the day is down to the intelligence in the songs of Smith, a deeper meaning not usually associated with punk, poetry set to the sound of rage and delivered with a snarling-venomous voice and three chords played exceptionally loud.

New York and in particular CBGB’s quickly became her battlefield and the birthplace of a legend, “Horses” was born out of the frustration and the pain Smith felt in the loss of the dominant, otherworldly rock stars such as Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
“All I ever wanted, since I was a child, was to do something wonderful”.

The album opens with a quiet moment of self-realization, that slowly gathers tempo, “Gloria” a track recorded originally recorded by Them and then The Doors and it is Morrison’s version she claims here, a slice of power and angst as producer John Cale steered the runaway train from leaving the tracks.

Across the albums eight-tracks all avenues are explored in full, from gender to violence, the influence “Horses” cast is heard in the music of Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Smith’s, R.E.M, The Slits and PJ Harvey who all owe a debt to the electric troubadour.
But her arrival on the music scene was exactly what Punk needed, with inspired lyrics similar to the folk-rock crossover that erupted ten years before when Dylan turned electric she blended aggression with intuitive words that rang in the ears of the listeners making nobody feel alone.

There was a man

Today 42 Years Ago X-Ray Spex Release The Phenomenal Germfree Adolescents

10th of November 2020, 07:00

What some have called the most original and best album of the original punk generation was unleashed 42 years on 10 November 1978, ‘Germfree Adolescents’ by X-Ray Spex stands at the pinnacle of what punk would accomplish in its first incarnation.

The dynamo that drove this punk-rock strike of defiance was loaded with anti-capitalist view which all spewed from an unlikely young girl, only nineteen at the time of its recording but this respectable, well-mannered young girl with braces on her teeth which were a feature when she smiled, but then she would open her mouth to sing and the shy, quiet Marion Joan Elliot-Said would transform into the high-priestess of a revolution, Poly Styrene.

The album opens with a four-syllable disdain: “Ar-ti-fic-ial!”, as it phases the music launches and this Richard Hell in knickers summons up the powerful and depressed emotions of the day in a twelve-track assault. It becomes clear that Poly Styrene delivers conviction in every word she sings, every sneer and roll of the tongue, each phrase is delivered with the same oppressed intensity as the last.

As for the musicianship of X-Ray Spex, they provide the perfect backdrop for Styrene to wage a verbal war, this album contains some of the best drumming on a punk record over which a very loud, old-school guitar pumps distorted rock and roll riffs that build in intensity throughout the albumthe inclusion of a saxophone to give the songs an extra depth may not be not common on records of the ‘Generation-X’ but it works here in galvanizing the sound.

The songs themselves are not love songs as such, they are rather the points of everyday society such as “Warrior In Woolworths”, “Plastic Bag”, “ I Am A Poseur” and of course the title track, not many bands could make songs about personal hygiene and supermarkets cool, though these themes make the album relatable and accessible to the youth of the day and stands as a time-capsule of late 70s culture.
