Just to clarify: There was no February 14th episode, so you haven't missed one. Due to studio sessions with my band, that episode was postponed until now -- which means that this brand new episode contains even more new music than it normally would. Behold!

Many great new post-punk/deathrock acts have come to my attention in the early part of this year already, hitting the scene from across the globe: England-by-way-of San-Francisco's Double Echo make their debut on this episode with a track from their traditional-goth-leaning Life Inside/Rupture/Sylvia online release. From Italy comes the frenetic post-punk of Soviet Soviet, whose Fate album crept in at the tail end of last year. From Denmark comes some impressive deathrock, in the form of Metro Cult's New Space/Ghost 7-inch (pun intended?). And, from Chicago, the band Population blows through with a song from their White Crosses EP.

Meanwhile, in Turkey, the darkwave/post-punk sounds of She Past Away make their debut on this episode as well, with a taste of their Belirdi Gece album. And who could discuss darkwave without mention of one of the art form's pioneers, Clan of Xymox? The Dutch group have returned with Matters of Mind, Body, and Spirit, from which you will hear a deeper cut this time.

This has also been a good month for the debut of side projects. Bella Morte's Andy Deane has emerged with two new songs from his Small Precious Lights project, which explores a dark ambient/electronic sound. Nearby, Steven Archer (of Ego Likeness) has just released Stoneburner's The No Chamber, which features experimental electronic landscapes based on the chronicles of Dune. Meanwhile, in the Pacific Northwest, Assemblage 23's Tom Shear has just released Oceania, the new album from his project Surveillance.

You'll also get a taste of the new God Module album, False Face, just before we slide into a dark metal set that is filled with new music as well: A pair of bizarre, experimental black metal entries from Sweden's Stilla and Macedonia's Kult of Taurus, along with the raw, cassette-demo vibe of Finland's Cemetery Fog, and a closing debut from USBM act, Incursus.  

All of that, plus forgotten songs culled from post-punk, deathrock, dark metal, and psychedelic darkwave vaults, and more...
