After a dozen missed connections, much-loved and oft-recommended dark folk/country/goth singer/songwriter Chelsea Wolfe finally makes her debut on this episode with "We Hit a Wall," taken from her greatly anticipated forthcoming album, Pain is Beauty.

If the mention of dark folk/country, or the mere thought of unlit tales of Americana grabs your attention, then you will want to stick around to hear the latest release from Denver's Munly & the Lee Lewis Harlots, whose new self-titled album is sure to appeal to fans of Nick Cave, Ghoultown, and even Voltaire, with whom I believe they'd make an interesting bill.

Also in the realm of neo-folk with a dark twist, Spain's Sangre del Muerdago make their debut on the show this time, with a track from their classically-influenced new album, Deixademe Morrer no Bosque. If all this talk of dark folk has you concerned, though, never fear. The traditional goth rock sound of Sweden's Brotherhood returns to the show on this episode, with a cut from the duo's latest release, simply entitled The Dark EP.

Speaking of returns, we'll dip into a second track from The Gethsemane Option, the latest from from psychedelic darkwave masters The Legendary Pink Dots, who probably wouldn't mind sharing a bit of the ether with a newcomer to the show this time, in the form of Leila Abdul-Rauf, known for her work with such bands as Hammers of Misfortune and Amber Asylum. Her new album, Cold and Cloud, is a landscape of ethereal vocals and dark ambient textures, featuring artwork by  Tor Lundvall.

You'll hear all of that, PLUS:  Further French-Canadian dark metal selections from the latest Sombres Forêts and Monarque albums; The unintentional (but serendipitous) pairing of two cult Czech artists; A nod to Sytem Syn's attempt to crowd-fund some new music videos; several great finds from the vault; and much more...
