PODCAST: July 14th, 2011

This week's show brought new music from the Texas duo, The Machine in the Garden, whose new album "Before and After the Storm" has just been released. You can grab the limited edition physical CD or the digital download at their Bandcamp site now.

Also premiering this week was a new track from Germany's best-named deathrock band, Bloody Dead and Sexy, whose song "Liquid Grey" is a promising teaser for things to come.  Los Angeles-based post-punk/shoegaze/goth band Sleepmask also gave us a sample track by way of the same new volume of the "Darkness Before Dawn" compilation series, in the form of the song "Collusion."

I also delved a bit deeper into the new Ulterior album, "Wild in Wilderness," for a track that bears one of my favorite titles in a while, "Too In Love to Fuck." It really just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? And, with my new-found freedom of speech as a podcaster, I actually get to say it out loud.

This show starts out subdued, moves into some classic goth and post-punk sounds, then picks up the pace with some stylized gothic rock and deathrock. For the third act, I pulled out an interesting mash-up and a couple of interesting curve-balls before going industrial for a bit. The final segment of the show explores some classic examples of how 'dark' and 'heavy' can effectively mix, in very different ways, all glued together with static and noise.

So, here is the podcast of the show:
