PLAYLIST & PODCAST: Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

I really enjoyed this episode in particular. I'm not sure why, but it just seemed riddled with good musical examples of the styles that have held my attention most lately. Maybe it was due to a few new sounds I'd discovered this week, or some that I'd returned to after a short absence. Maybe it was something in the air? Either way, it has been preserved (below) for your listening pleasure.

This week brought a new entry from Implex Grace, whose larger dark ambient piece "Diamond of Disappearance" seems largely influenced by the aural qualities of the very first episode of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe." Don't scoff. Those who know me well know how much I love many of the less-often-considered aspects of that show, such as the background paintings, the implied back-stories, and to a large extent, the seldom-heard-on-its-own score music. At any rate, I couldn't resist dark ambient music based on that.

Also new this week was some fresh goth rock/peace-punk from Lost Tribe, who hail from Richmond, VA. We also heard deeper cuts from the latest releases from Peter Murphy, Christine Plays Viola, Brighter Fires, Disemballerina, and Loss, along with some recently discovered older obscurities from around the world.

Otherwise, here is the podcast of the show:
