PODCAST: February 9th, 2012

This week's show begins with another new live track from Dead Can Dance, who have just released Part III in their free, online series, Live Happenings. The series is designed to whet fans' appetites for their forthcoming new album and tour. To learn more, or grab these EPs for yourself, click HERE.

Brand new to the show this week is Bulgarian band Voyvoda, whose atypical sound combines elements of Balkan folk music and Eastern Orthodox chants with cold wave and post-punk influences. Their new album is called Изток (Iztok), and you can stream it HERE.

Also appearing for the first time on this episode are Italy's Chemical Waves, whose new single "The Origin" can be streamed HERE. It's an unusual piece of post-punk experimentation, chronicling a journey through the history of mankind's cruelty unto itself, through an act like a holocaust.

Other new entries include: A remix from the latest Aesthetic Perfection single, Inhuman; a deeper look into one of the three new albums from ROME; a second look at the new EP from Puerto Rico's The Dead Souls, and two more new dark ambient tracks from Norway's Plague Machinery and Psychomanteum (USA).

The regional concert spotlight for this episode is thrown on two acts that will be hitting the greater TN/AL area in the next week: Zola Jesus, who will be playing in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, February 11th; and VNV Nation, who will play Nashville's Exit/In on February 15th. On a side note, you will catch me at both of these shows. For the VNV Nation show, I will be DJing (along with DJ Jimmy) before and between the bands.

Also on this episode: Songs from the vaults, in the form of rescued deathrock classics, sadly forgotten regional music, and a war-torn lullaby from one of the most contentious plots of land in world history. That, and plenty of other current and classic dark music upon which to feast your ears.
