PODCAST: April 25th, 2014

It's been a few weeks since the last show, and it will actually be about a month before the next episode arrives, so I've made this one extra-long to help bridge the gap. More about the reasons for that gap in a minute -- but for now, prepare yourselves for over 3 hours of music.

This episode begins with a slightly belated birthday wish for (the man, the myth, the legend) Robert Smith of The Cure, who celebrated his 55th earlier this week. In honor of that, you'll hear a pair of rarities (one live and one obscure) on the way in. Closely following that, the neo-folk fans who rarely get enough of that style here will revel in fresh sounds from New York's Blood and Sun, taken from their new album White Storms Fall.

Those lucky enough to find themselves in Chicago this weekend will be able to attend Convergence 20: First & Last & Always, celebrating 20 years(!) of the annual alt.gothic festival. This year's line-up includes The March Violets and the first-ever US show by UK-Goth-saviours Pretentious, Moi? -- both of whom you'll hear in this episode, in honor of the fact that I'd love to be there in person. But alas...

For the modern post-punk fans, you'll have several reasons to rejoice. First up is the Australian/German combo Ascetic:, who makes their debut here with a song from their Self-Initiation album. Next up is Florida's Astari Night, with a song from their new Stereo Waltz album, followed by Washington's Criminal Code, with an already popular dance track (here in Nashville, at least) from their No Device album.

We'll also dig a bit deeper in to the latest from Ottawa's goth-punk hybrid, Aube, from their 2013 Demo; Turkey's excellent darkwave/goth mixture, She Past Away, from their Belirdi Gece album; and the post-gothic/synth work of Seeming, from their new album, Madness & Extinction.
Now, the reason for my month away from podcasting comes into play during the dark metal set, which is comprised entirely of doom this time. I will be on tour with Loss for the better part of May, as we cross Europe for the first time in our career. In honor of that, the last portion of the show begins with the latest from our tour-mates, German doom-legends Worship, then leads into a set of bands we'll be playing shows with, including new material from three great French acts: Ataraxie, Funeralium, and Monarch!.

All of that, plus: Fresh atmosphere from London's Double Echo and Brian Tyler's soundtrack to the "Sleepy Hollow" television series (how could I resist?); The undying and explicitly 'saxual' new-wave-result of seeing "The Lost Boys" again on the big screen (with an introduction by Corey Feldman himself, no less); Selections from the vault of underrated songs; and more...
