PODCAST: February 23rd, 2012

This episode brings new music from Naiades, the brand new album/art collection from Monica Richards. You should recognize her name and art style from her work with Faith and the Muse. The new release is available as a book/CD combo HERE.

Finally making it to the show this time around is the single "Take Forever," which is a collaboration between Irish electronic act The Japanese Popstars (your guess is as good as mine) and Robert Smith (of The Cure). It did, in fact,"take forever" for me to get this one on the show, but it's well worth the wait.

The release of the debut full-length from one of the greatest doom bands in the US, Pallbearer, is finally here. Sorrow & Extinction, released by Profound Lore Records, will no doubt top many year-end lists for 2012 -- but before then, opportunities to catch their live show are stacking up. Dates in New York and Texas have just been announced, and this weekend will bring a pair of official CD release shows, first in their home state of Arkansas (details HERE), then Saturday night in Nashville (details HERE). Both shows will also feature Loss on the bill.

Speaking of Nashville's music scene: This episode's local spotlight is thrown on the debut EP from a newly-transplanted industrial act that now calls Nashville home: Frontal Boundary. You can check out the sounds of "Electronic Warfare" HERE.

New sounds from the forthcoming Locrian & Mamiffer dark noise collaboration will also filter in, alongside tracks from the latest releases by The Beauty of Gemina and The Frozen Autumn. We'll also peel back another layer of Alcest's latest, Les Voyages De L'âme. All that, plus: A rare home studio demo from Corpus Delicti, a seldom-heard US-darkwave collaboration, a pair of listener requests, a gushing live-show review, cool new-release announcements, and loads of current and classic dark music.
