PLAYLIST & PODCAST: Thursday, May 19th, 2011

The May 19th episode was the first to take place in the new Summer 2011 time slot: 10pm (central) on Thursday nights. So, look for the show two hours earlier than normal from now until the Fall, and feast your eyes on the brand new flyer:


Feel free to spread the flyer around, wherever you see fit.

A lot of great new music emerged on this week's show:

First, the original line-up of Bella Morte (Andy Deane and Gopal Metro) have been working behind the scenes on a new post-punk/post-goth project called Brighter Fires. If you've ever wondered what might have been if the two had continued to work together as Bella Morte, Brighter Fires answers that question, and then some, with excellent results. Their first single ("From the Sky") from the forthcoming album was featured on the show this week, and it is currently available as a free download on their Bandcamp site (linked below). Check it out.

Also new to the show this week were entries from the post-punk/indie-goth side, from the UK's Esben & the Witch and Italy's Christine Plays Viola, who together started to push this week's episode into a theme of witchcraft that continued to crop up throughout -- especially towards the end of the program. I can never resist the emergence of a good theme, as you know, and this is also reflected in the new flyer.

Germany's Ghostfog gave us a new industrial landscape, mixed with some post-punk guitar lines and metallic vocals, while Nashville's own funeral-doom band Loss finally gave the world a taste of their long-awaited full-length, "despond," which sees its official release this Month on Profound Lore Records, Canada.

Otherwise, here's the podcast version of this week's episode:
