PODCAST: February 2015 Episode

This episode was delayed a little bit due to the ice and snow that have covered Nashville's landscape in somber white since last weekend, so it's only natural that it should begin with a set suited for reflection on a desolate, mournful snowscape. The Stooges set the tone on the way in, followed by a set featuring brand new music from The Lost Patrol, taken from their Chasing Shadows album, and a further selection from the new Hot Guts new album, Wilds.
The first set finishes with a song from 20Six Hundred, taken from the (so far) three-volume synth-tribute to the music of "Twin Peaks," The Next Peak, released by Retro Promenade. To give you a further taste of the series' new electronic eye on the Lynch universe, another selection -- this one from Full Eclipse -- is included under the talk break. You can check out the rest of the tribute albums here.

The second full set begins with a deeper cut into the new ROME album, A Passage to Rhodesia. ROME will finally set foot on American soil again in April. You can find more information on those west coast appearances here. The set then turns to a premiere from the forthcoming Ashton Nyte album, Some Kind Of Satellite. Known best as the man behind South African goth band, The Awakening, Nyte will release his latest solo album in March. Pre-orders are happening here, and you can see the video for the new single here

Continuing with the premieres, we visit Portugal for a taste of the new band NU:N, whose Nothing Unveils Nothing can be found here, followed by another brand new digital single from the once-on-hiatus, recently-international goth band, The Last Dance. The great news? There will be a new full-length in April called Ruins. The band is currently offering pre-sales and perks to support the long-hoped-for new album and live shows here.

The world of horror films and soundtracks would simply not be the same without 
John Carpenter, so it was with great relish that I welcomed his new solo LP into my home this week. In honor of that, the next set begins with two selections from his new Lost Themes collection, which is (unbelievably) his first release designed to stand alone, without films to back the music -- unless you count the films in your head. Either way, it's recommended.

The darkwave continues with a further look at the new 
All Your Sisters album, Modern Failures, followed by the 5th digital single from the realms of Gild the Mourn. "Greed" sees the duo of Gopal and Angel Metro beginning to carve out a signature sound, reminiscent of the classic '90s gothwave scene in the US. The fusion of post-punk and darkwave continues with another debut, this time from Sweden's Agent Side Grinder, whose Alkimia album will see release in the spring.

Finally, we reach the dark metal portion of the show, with further tastes of the new albums from 
Agalloch and Primordial, as well as debuts from Germany's Vivus Humare, taken from their album Einkehr, and Canada's anonymous psychedelic black metal outfit, Thantifaxath, whose album made a number of Best of 2014 lists last year. The closing honors for this episode are given to Nashville's own Hadals, who provide another chance to slip into the ether with their track from the Hadals, Japanese Women, Pleasuredome, Pornography & Settlement split on the noted cassette label, Tapes of a Neon God

All of that, plus: A taste of the new reissue of the long-lost first Rwake album, Xenoglossalgia: The Last Stage of Awareness; deeper cuts from the "Under the Skin" and "Only Lovers Left Alive" soundtracks; selections from the post-punk, goth, industrial, and unreleased-horror vaults; and much more...
