EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

As mandated by the dreaded, wet heat of the south (and travel), this show has been slow to emerge, but here it is: The July 2017 edition of "Out ov the Coffin." We begin this month with a special tribute to the life and work of legendary film maker, George A. Romero (February 4, 1940 – July 16, 2017), who died last week at the age of 77. Few need to be reminded that Romero is the father of the zombie genre as we know it, but he gave us more than just the living dead, so the opening set attempts to balance songs and sounds from, and about, his well-known work (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead) with something less often praised (1978's Martin). Rest in peace, George, and thank you for all you accomplished.

George Romero and I in 2008.
Following that introduction, the show moves into a long list of new music, starting with a catchy new single from rising UK post-punk act Chain of Flowers, which is followed quickly with more new post-punk from Portland's Spirit Host, taken from their new Howl album. On the verge of both a new album AND a US tour with Aurelio VoltaireBella Morte jumps in next with a b-side from their latest maxi-single, One Bright Soul In This Emptiness, which also leans more to the post-punk side of the fence. Dipping back to last year for an overlooked item, we next hear from Italy's European Ghost, before getting a taste of Oakland's Fearing, whose A Life of None strikes a somber tone next to the former's more upbeat post-punk approach. Mummy Calls is the last stop of the set, included here to honor of the 30th anniversary of the 1987 summer vampire film classic, "The Lost Boys." 

The second set springs (back) to life with some further new deathrock sounds from Chile's Diavol Strâin, taken from their Demonio EP.  Keeping in the deathrock vein, we then hear a new single from multi-continental act Air Hunger, which leads into a classic moment from Fields of the Nephilim before sliding into a lo-fi track from Horror Vacui's 2017 flexi, Die Schwarzen Keller Session. We then hear a closely-related pair of songs from members of Germany's Bloody Dead and Sexy: First, a taste of two of the members' more low-key side-project, Psi Club, then a previously unreleased track taken from the full band's new retrospective collection, Crucifixion Please!.

The third set explores more synth and electronic territory, starting with a new song from Skinny Puppy-and-Legendary Pink Dots-collaboration The Tear Garden's The Brown Acid Caveat. A double-shot of new music from right here in Nashville comes next, first from FIRES, who have taken the unusual step of releasing their remix collection ahead of their debut album, then from relative newcomers Other Voices, who take a soulful approach to their new wave/post-punk sound, not unlike Krovi (with whom they share a member). We then hear a debut from Michigan's Osseovs, whose lo-fi darkwave might appeal to fans who already miss Tollund Men. Finally, the set concludes with a classic from Belfegore's self-titled 1984 album.

The dark metal section of the show begins in a relatively non-metal fashion, with new music from France's Les Chants du Hasard, whose black-metal-esque style is crafted without the use of guitars, bass, or drums, opting instead for classical instrumentation. We then get another taste of Seattle's Isenordal, diving deeper into their Shores of Mourning cassette, before getting another great taste of Light of the Morning Star's Nocta LP. The set rounds out with new music from Ides of Gemini's seemingly deathrock-infused new LP, Women, before the whole show eventually concludes with an overlooked new, and much heavier, track from Spectral Apparition's 2016 Manifestation EP. 


All of that, PLUS: Music from the new Castlevania animated series by Trevor Morris; Further new soundtrack work from Jim Williams' "Raw" score; Fresh dark ambient from Of Earth and Sun; selections from the horror punk, darkwave, and goth vaults; and more!

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

Welcome to the June 2017 episode of "Out ov the Coffin." After spending some time in the music vaults in the last week, this one begins with a nearly-forgotten piece from what I imagine is a now-defunct Portland band called Sumerland, before sliding into one of two new dark ambient tracks taken from a recent compilation by Kalpamatra, entitled, "The Echoing Black." The German project Phelios decorates the first talk-break of the show.

Lest you should think that we're going to wallow in muted ambience and somber waves all night, the first full set kicks in with some fast and fresh goth/deathrock from Lock Howl, delivering a first taste of their new Pareidolia album. Following quickly is new music from Finland's The Flatfield, from their Manie Sans Délire album. We then (finally) dip back to last year's Swarm LP, from Brooklyn's Bambara, who proudly wear their Nick Cave/Birthday Party influences where we can all admire them. The set rounds out with three selections from the post-punk vaults, including one of the earliest recordings of Atlanta's Entertainment, a personal favorite from New Model Army (later famously covered by Sepultura), and the recently re-appreciated Red Temple Spirits

The second full set begins with a deeper and more electronic cut from the new Clan of Xymox album, Days of Black, before celebrating the recently-reissued majesty of The Great Annihilator-era Swans. A reminder of how great Shadow Age's Silaluk 7-inch was comes next, to whet your appetite for their forthcoming new material. We then dip into the '80s vaults for some overlooked Minimal Compact, before settling in for a tale from the new collaboration from 
Amanda Palmer & Edward Ka-Spel. The album, entitled I Can Spin a Rainbow, sees the unexpected duo trading vocals on what Ka-spel fans will recognize as his signature style of musical storytelling. Finally, the set concludes with the pleasant surprise of new music from France's Hante., taken from the just-released darkwave opus, Between Hope & Danger

Set three begins by dipping deeper into two current albums that have been getting a lot of play in my car recently, The Agnes Circle's Some Vague Desire, and Drab Majesty's The Demonstration. We then reach two decades back into the vaults for a '90s goth classic from Vendemmian, then slide forward to one decade ago for a nearly-forgotten cut from France's Joy/Disaster, before coming back to the fresh and new with a debut from Poland's curiously-named Jesus Rodriguez. The set ends with another taste of Bloodlust EP from The Kentucky Vampires, who will be performing live at the June edition of Nashville's post-punk, goth, deathrock, and darkwave dance night, Fascination Street.

The dark metal portion of the show begins with new music from Seattle's 
Isenordal, who I was lucky enough to catch live recently. The sound of their latest release, Shores of Mourning, although equally rooted in modern dark metal styles, draws influence from the strings-and-keys-laden gothic doom acts of the '90s, the sound of which was sorely missing from the current crop of bands. We then tear deeper into the latest albums from VenenumParia, and Délétère, stopping briefly to get our first of two further bites from the excellent Raw soundtrack, courtesy of Jim Williams

I then shamelessly close the show with the opening track from the new 
Loss album, Horizonless, because nobody has waited longer to finally be able to share it with the world.


All of that, PLUS: Further new dark ambient from 
Abandoned Asylum; Another taste of Cristobal Tapia De Veer's score to The Girl with All the Gifts; A rare selection from the neo-classical vaults; and more!

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

First, a little bit of housekeeping: This episode is labeled the April-May episode to mark a slight transition in the launch dates. Instead of uploading each episode at the tail end of each month, episodes will now be launched at the top of each month, just to keep things fresh. So, this is basically the April episode you would have gotten last week, while the one I record at the end of this month will launch in June. 

Making up for that slight delay and change, this show has several special bonus features, bringing it up to a full 3 hours. In addition to a nice list of new releases, deeper cuts from current releases, and tracks from the vault, you will also hear a special tribute set to The Cure, marking this month's 35th anniversary of Pornography, as well as the 30th anniversary of Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. Then, in honor of the forthcoming premiere of the new season/series, we'll take an "accidental" musical journey through Twin Peaks, AND close the show with annual respects paid to Rozz Williams, just in case anyone thought I'd forgotten.

On the way in, you'll hear new music from Oakland's Esses, the latest group (in a long line of worthy groups) to feature members of the oft-praised bay-area band Black Ice. Their new album slipped out towards the end of last year, and it would've been on my 'Best ov' list if I'd heard it in time. Can't win 'em all.

We begin the first full set with more new goth rock from 
Philadelphia's Night Sins, taken from their Sisters-soaked Dancing Chrome album, then pick up a deeper cut from Aware, the latest from Italy's Tanks and Tears. After a classic from Siouxsie & the Banshees, we visit Russia, for new post-punk from TRIØXIN (extra points for that band name), followed by a taste of the new Clan of Xymox album, Days of Black, which sees the band mostly continuing in the darkwave/goth style that put them on the map. Matias 13, known better to most as the guitarist for Germany's Bloody Dead and Sexy, has filled the void between their releases with a solo, mostly-instrumental album called The Opium Sea, from which you'll hear a song, followed by a classic from France's best '90s goth export, Corpus Delicti, to celebrate the arrival of their new vinyl reissues

The second set begins in Ukraine, with a song from the curiously named post-punk band, 
Battle Axe Culture. I then lament the fact that I'm missing Horror Vacui's current US tour by playing one of their recent classics, followed by a further taste of U.S. goth/post-punk/darkwave band New Today. A deeper cut from Chicago's Wingtips comes next, in honor of their upcoming live appearance at the May 13th edition of Fascination Street (Nashville's goth, post-punk, deathrock, darkwave dance night). After a recent track from Minuit Machine-related project Hante., we get a new Fad Gadget cover, as interpreted by US darkwave act NOIR (Athan Maroulis of Spahn Ranch fame), followed by a modern classic from the presumably-defunct(?) LA band, Pins and Needles

Next, we arrive at the special double-anniversary tribute set to The Cure, featuring several original tracks, a new cover by Portland's Lunch, some rare, period interview clips, and some early/alternate versions of now iconic tracks. All of this to honor the 35th anniversary of the release of Pornography (May 4th, 1982) and the 30th anniversary of Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me (May 25th, 1987). Keep your eyes peeled, as I will also be re-upping my 2012 special episode, dedicated entirely to the majesty of Pornography (the album, you perverts!), as it is my favorite album of all time.

For the second special bonus set of the show, I've gathered a whole set of music that gives me the vibe (if you will) of the Twin Peaks universe, without actually having been recorded for the series (or the movie). Included is music from the newly reissued Tear Garden album, 
Have a Nice Trip, and more new music from the latest Worm Ouroboros album, What Graceless Dawn. I have put this together, of corpse, in honor of the new series/season that will be starting up on May 21st, WHICH WILL BE GREAT, RIGHT? We hope so... 

We then arrive at the dark metal portion of this extra-long show, which begins with new music from the 
Pvtrefactio 7-inch, just issued by Finland's Celestial Grave. A couple of forgotten classicks from the melodic death and black metal vaults follow, from Night In Gales and Mütiilation, respectively, before giving you a second taste of Nocta, from the UK's goth-metal flagbearers, Light of the Morning Star. A second taste of the new Pallbearer album, Heartless, rounds out the metal for the night, allowing us to close the show with my annual remembrance of the life of Rozz Williams (Christian Death, Shadow Project, etc.), who took his own life in April of 1998. R.I.P./1334.

All of that, PLUS: News, updates, and tour info
; selections from the dark ambient vaults; and more!

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

We begin this episode with the new Bella Morte song, "One Bright Soul In This Emptiness" (get the maxi-single here). The band has traveled many avenues since its inception in the '90s, and this one sees them shedding the crunchier guitar sound of recent years and heading into post-punk territory, in a very successful way. AND, while you're thinking back to their earlier output, the band is currently raising funds to press their classic "Where Shadows Lie" album on vinyl, so if you need that in your life, you can vote with your wallet right here

Speaking of bright souls in emptiness, the next thing you hear will be music from the recent film, "The Girl With All the Gifts," as composed by Cristobal Tapia De Veer. A new and stylish development in the already well-established zombie genre is hard to come by, so I put my stamp of approval on this one. See it.

Beyond that, the first full set begins with eagerly-anticipated new music from Philadelphia's 
Night Sins, whose Dancing Chrome album will be released on May 19th via Funeral Party Records. Pre-order it here. Following that, we hit a couple of classic obscurities, before digging a little deeper into the latest goth-punk opus from PDX's The Bellicose MindsThe Creature. We then round out the set with U.S. goth/post-punk/darkwave band New Today, offering one of many ways to get their new Better Than Death album stuck in your head.

The second set kicks off with the somber darkwave of Skeleton Hands, taken from their just-released Flood Spell EP, which is probably only too happy to lead into a taste of the new Depeche Mode album, Spirit. Belgian darkwave/ebm act Luminance arrives next, with another title track, this one from their new Constance in Sorrow EP. Nashville favorites HR_Lexy follow, with a deeper cut from last year's Slaves to the Light EP, this one also premiering as a video earlier this week. For those near Nashville, the band will be the featured live musical guests at the next edition of our goth danse night, Fascination Street, on Saturday April 8th.

After reaching into the vault for another classic, the second set comes to a brilliant close with the title theme from 
Jim Williams' excellent score to the equally-excellent new French/Belgian film, "Raw," which I will also take a moment to recommend. Watch the trailer here, and pre-order the soundtrack LP here.

Set three begins with the new single from Sweden's Principe Valiente, the not-Sinatra-related "Strangers in the Night." A classic from Joy Division jumps in next, leading us into a further taste of the new album from Italy's Winter Severity Index. Premieres from France's Night Train to Nowhere and Italy's Tanks and Tears follow next, before closing the set with an overlooked track from The Cold, dating back to 2009, and thereby still sitting close to the door of the last decade's vault.

The fourth set launches us into dark metal territory, beginning with a new one from Germany's Venenum, taken from their bizarre new Trance of Death LP. Mysterious UK act Light of the Morning Star follow closely with a taste of their new gothic metal opus, Nocta, which brings a welcome style and sound back to the table, for me. French-Canadain black metal masters Délétère creep in next, with a taste of their latest, Per Astra Ad Pestilentium, before the show ultimately closes with an epic tale from the new Pallbearer album, Heartless, which just hit stores shelves at the end of last week. You can catch those stand-up gents on tour now.

All of that, PLUS: New synthwave sounds from 
Night Prowler and Dance with the Dead; Selections from the goth, darkwave, and post-punk vaults; and more!
