PODCAST: July 28th, 2011

One of the phrases I've used to describe this show over the years is "exploring the unlit corners of a strange musical map," and since it had been a while since I last pushed the proverbial envelope to the edge of this coffin, I decided, while looking over some of the new entries, that this would be the week to do so.

With a new digital single from ThouShaltNot out this very week, I simply couldn't resist. And if this song's inclusion on Projekt Records' forthcoming "A Dark Cabaret 2" compilation was to be any indication, "The Haunted Phonograph" would be otherworldly, anachronistic, and equally suited for either a smoke-laden cabaret setting or a turn-of-the-last-century séance. And it is! Get it for yourself at their Bandcamp site.

Also treading into territory not usually covered by this show was a new collaboration between Neko Case and perennial favorite Nick Cave, which was recorded for use in the first episode of True Blood: Season 4. If that isn't enough to make you want to hear it, the song, "She's Not There," happens to be a cover of noted psychedelic '60s band The Zombies, who gave us the classic "Time of the Season" back in 1969.

Also making its debut this week was the new single from (former Rosetta Stone frontman) Porl King's current "post-gothic" band, Miserylab. The song, "Children of the Poor," is available here as a free mp3 download. If you visit the official Miserylab site, you can also check out the new video he made for the song.

You will also hear more new music in this episode from Sweden's Principe Valiente, whose self-titled new album is picking up steam among post-punk fans worldwide. Not to sell them short by comparing them to another band, but if you miss how Interpol sounded on their first album, you'll want to check these guys out.

The industrial portion of this week's show went largely oldschool, revisiting some classic club tracks from the late '90s/early 2K's. In the dark metal section at the end of the show, you'll hear new music from Italy's Abhor, whose forthcoming album
Ab Luna Lucenti, Ab Noctua Protecti, will hit the streets on September 27th on the Moribund label.
