EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

As is the tradition, my first episode of the year is a loving look back at the best music that the last year had to offer, as pared down and carefully selected from the realms of goth, post-punk, deathrock, darkwave, industrial, film scores, dark metal, and the regions between. Clocking in at just over 3 hours, there is a lot to appreciate here, culled from a full year's worth of club and radio playlists, and many hours of worthwhile sonic research -- but there will always be something I missed, so don't punch me if I overlooked your favorite. That said, welcome to the "Out ov the Coffin: Best ov 2017" Edition (aka The January 2018 Episode).

Consider this a sonic time-capsule, as I like to see it, or a themed mix-tape of the songs, artists, and albums that stood out, made the strongest impressions, were often stuck in my player, or were attached to the defining moments of the year that was 2017. 
Each talk break features music from some of my favorite darker films and television shows of the year, as well. You will find that these entries are not ranked like a lot of year-end lists, but played in an order that flows for the listener. Same goes for the accompanying graphic, which certainly includes a lot of my personal highlights, but acts as more of a collage. 

So, sit back, dim the lights, and enjoy this collection. If you like what you hear, please share the link online, or pass it along to a friend or twelve.

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

On the third day of Christmas, my DJ gave to me: A new podcast (finally)! Don't worry, this is the December Episode of "Out ov the Coffin" and not a full-on xmas special -- but for those in the spirit (so to speak), there are some holiday gems to adore. We begin, in fact, with new music from Death In Rome, who turn in another unexpectedly moving cover of an unlikely classic. This time, "Last Christmas," originally written and recorded by WHAM!. Whaaaaa? Yes, and it's so good, because they don't just slap their style on the song, they also incorporate counter melodies from musical history that really put the star on the top of the old tree.

After that seasonal intro, we get down to a great bunch of new goth/post-punk, for any time of the year, starting with music from the new 
Fearing EP, Black Sands (their second great EP this year, mind you). Next, we go one track deeper into the new EP from Virginia's Shadow Age, this autumn's excellent, The FallLakes return after that with the title track from their latest neo-folk/post-punk fusion, Silver Thorns, before we slide into the vaults for an overlooked 1983 track from Nervous Germans. Finally, the new stomper from Los Angeles deathrock band The Wraith rounds out the first set.

Set two is what I like to call the gooey Xmas center of the show, flanked by holiday-related instrumentals from Xmal Deutschland and Depeche Mode, the set takes off with a traditional French Christmas Carol, made their own by Siouxsie & the Banshees back in 1982. A live rarity from The Cure falls from your chimbley next, and lands on both feet, wearing a coal-covered Slade t-shirt (ok, it's a Slade cover they performed live 30 years ago this month). If that isn't weird enough for you, crazy Uncle Al (Jourgensen, of Ministry fame) shows up bearing an original Christmas collaboration with Mark Thwaite (of The Mission fame) before we mark the 30th anniversary of the cult classic HÖH / Current 93 chestnut, Crowleymass!

The Cruxshadows kick off the third set again this month, with a deeper look into their new darkwave opus, Astromythology, which in turn launches a deeper look at Soror Dolorosa's pensive new Apollo album. Not to be outdone, UK act FEHM steps in with the b-side from their cracking new Human Age single, rolling us further into the post-punk/wave realm, before hitting the (dark)waves again for a second look at Wake from Ohio's Skeleton Hands. Washington's The Dancing Plague of 1518 close this set with another taste their Habitual EP, proving that this set's unintentional theme was "one track deeper into cool new albums."

For the dark metal portion of the show, we begin with an excerpt from the massive, one-song-album that is Bell Witch's Mirror Reaper. Already topping many 'Album of the Year' lists across the globe, you can fully to expect to hear another excerpt from this one next month, when the "Out ov the Coffin: Best ov 2017" episode arrives. Following that is a new strain of doom from The Howling Void's new one, The Darkness at the Edge of Dawn. Already heavily on repeat in my car, we next rip into new music from Barshasketh, taken from their new split with Outre, before closing the set with something from the regions between hardcore punk and black metal, taking the form of Devil Master's new EP, Inhabit the Corpse.

All of that PLUS: New soundtrack work from the lush new Guillermo del Toro film, "The Shape of Water" (by Alexandre Desplat); Selections from the Goth, Darkwave, and Horror Holiday vaults; and more!

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

Arriving late in the month, but simply loaded with new releases, the November episode of "Out ov the Coffin" is a return to traditional form, after a few of months of special editions. We begin by saluting this month's 30th anniversary of the release of The Sisters of Mercy's landmark goth classic Floodland, selections from which actually bookend this episode. I chose two of my personal favorites for the occasion, two songs which receive little in the way of club play, so they run little risk of sounding worn out.

From there, we dive into a set filled with almost entirely new material. Virginia's Shadow Age are up first, with the lead single from their new EP, The Fall. The band just wrapped up a tour cursed by a broken van, but despite that disappointment, the band's material continues to be among the best in the current American post-punk scene. Soror Dolorosa come next, with a first taste of their new Apollo album, on which they continue to provide solid modern goth rock. NOIR slides in next, with an atypical selection from their new remix EP, Reburning. Contrary to most remixes, this version of the song is a stripped-down, neo-classical version that really stood out to me.

Continuing the first set is a relatively new German band called La Scaltra, offering what i would call a very '90s-influenced darkwave/goth sound, reminiscent of Switchblade Symphony's best work. Ashton Nyte (of The Awakening) pays us a visit next, with his latest solo single, a cover of the Boy George classic, "The Crying Game." The set concludes with a Lycia classic, taken from their first (and newly reissued) album, 1989's Wake

The second set begins with new music from Finland's Kuudes Silmä, taken from their impressive new album. The fresh euro-post-punk continues with the new single from UK act FEHM, the immediately-catchy Human Age. We then visit the vaults for some mid'90s Cure-worship from germany's The Caves, before getting back to the brand new music with a song from Autobahn's new primal post-punk release, The Moral Crossing. We then go a track deeper into the latest from Pawns, hiding for a moment in the title track from The Gallows. Then, finally, the "Most Interesting Band Name" award this month goes to Washington's The Dancing Plague of 1518, who close this set with the title track from their latest, Habitual

The Cruxshadows kick off the third set with what has emerged as my favorite song from their new Astromythology album. As mentioned on the podcast, if you had lost track of the band for a while, this new album is a great time to reconnect, as it sees Rogue and company branching out in several new directions, trying new things, and succeeding. A taste of the new Bootblacks LP, Fragments, follows with some consistent, pulsing new darkwave, leading us to the lead single from Ohio's Skeleton Hands, who recently graced the stage for Fascination Street here in Nashville. Their new album Wake is out now.

Set 3 continues with what one might call the return of 
Zola Jesus. After dabbling in electro-pop for an album, Okovi sees them once again embracing some of the colder and darker tones that drew in fans early on. And speaking of returning to form, the set wraps up with a new recording of a very old song from the legendary John Carpenter, delving further into his new Anthology: Movie Themes 1974-1998 LP. 

The final set explores several artists, who in entirely different ways, find themselves placed in the "metal" section at record stores. First, we go deeper into Women, the latest from Ides of Gemini, whose new sound on this release owes a lot more to deathrock than it does to the more metallic sounds with which the band was once associated. France's Nyss make their 'Coffin debut next with the third act from their new avant-garde black metal release, Princesse Terre (Three Studies of Silence and Death). A rare foray near the realms of hardcore comes next, with a taste of the new Beauty Fades EP from dark Boston punks, Sadist, which leads, in a cool way, into a closing track from Norwegian black metal legends, Mayhem. Just before recording this episode, I had the amazing experience of watching the surviving members of the De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas line-up perform that album in its entirety. Naturally, I had to close this set with one of those songs.

All of that PLUS: New dark ambient from Russia's 
Frozen Ocean and Flames of Genesis (UK); New soundtrack work from the bizarre new film, The Killing of a Sacred Deer; Some velevty 1970s Satano-horror soundtrack work; A 30th anniversary nod to cult zombie film classic The Video Dead; and more!

PODCAST: September 2017 Episode [Compilation for the Dead 2017]

[STREAM this episode (on Mixcloud)]
(or scroll to the bottom to stream it here)


Tis the season for specials, and this special episode is the podcast version of the Out ov the Coffin: Compilation for the Dead 2017. What's that? Well, the "Compilation for the Dead" is actually a mixtape-style version of the podcast, so the snake is eating its tail again here.

I started the "Compilation for the Dead" series back in 2007, after attending Dragon Con for a couple of years, where I would consistently have conversations about the state of "goth" music, the health of "the scene," and if there were any good bands still putting music out these days. My answer to the last question was always an emphatic "yes, damn it!," but in order to put my money where my mouth was, I decided to actually create proof.

"I made you a mixtape...." See? Not creepy at all! Right?

So, each year I choose just under 80 minutes of strictly new and current music to represent this podcast, my DJing style, and, most importantly, the current state of the goth & dark music scene as I see it.

For those who just found out about "Out ov the Coffin" from me at Dragon Con this year, I welcome you aboard. New, "regular" episodes happen once a month, featuring even more great new music -- but alongside classics from the vault, episodic themes, and other current dark sounds from the realms of post-punk, deathrock, darkwave, goth, industrial, film scores, dark metal, and more. The next one will be October's much-anticipated Halloween Special, in fact, so look for that one in the corpse -- er, course -- of the next month...

In the meantime, if you're new to this podcast, I encourage you to check out some of the previous episodes (here or here), and to follow the show on Facebook.

Thanks,
Ichabod
