This episode kicks off with a brand new track from Germany's Bloody Dead and Sexy, whose experiments in deathrock and modern goth rock are among the best currently circulating, so new music from them is the sort of news that is always good. Their latest album is entitled Bad Ambient, and you can find out more about it here.

A band with quite the buzz behind them right now is London's Savages, who have quickly jumped into the international spotlight with their catchy-yet-confrontational post-punk sound. They've already landed tour slots with Portishead in Europe, and Queens of the Stone Age in the US, and to get you ready to see them, you'll hear a selection from their new album Silence Yourself.

Quite by accident, this episode brings in a trio of debuts from Los Angeles bands. First up is the indie post-punk of Cold Showers, with a taste of their latest Love & Regret album, which has now been followed by a brand new single. The already-noteworthy Bestial Mouths have released a single from their forthcoming self-titled album that sees the band pushing the boundaries of their deathwave combination of synths, deathrock, and unlit noise.

In the industrial realm, you'll find the third of the L.A. acts that are new to this episode, in the form of Chiildren (yes, that's the correct spelling), whose fusion of industrial, noise, and harsh metal sounds has been catching people off guard on their latest EP, The Other People. While we're in the realms of dark industrial tones, you'll get another slice of Kalpamantra's new Apogee compilation (get it free right here), in the form of Nam-Khar.

On the way out, you'll get to be the judge of the controversial, yet also widely praised, new single from San Francisco's Deafheaven. With all the questions about whether a band from a black metal background is allowed to name their album Sunbather, or have a bright pink cover, or incorporate sounds that are on the uplifting side, one might get distracted from whether or not it actually sounds good -- so I'll let you check it out and see.

You'll hear all of that, PLUS: Another accidental trilogy, in the form of '70s/'80s horror-prog; a look back at Lycia's monumental Cold album to celebrate its much-anticipated release on vinyl; a third trilogy, in the form of three epic-length doom songs (because: 3 of everything!); several rarities and b-sides from the post-punk/deathrock vault; and much more...
