PODCAST: January 2016: The Best ov 2015

[STREAM this episode right now on Mixcloud]
(or use the embedded player at the bottom of this post)


As is the tradition, the first episode of the year is a long look back at the best of the previous year's worth of dark music, selected from the realms of goth, post-punk, deathrock, darkwave, industrial, ethereal, film scores, dark metal, and those regions too difficult to plot on a simple chart. That said, welcome to the "Out ov the Coffin Best ov 2015" Special.

Consider this a sonic time-capsule, if you will, or a themed mix-tape of the songs and albums that stood out, made the strongest impressions, or were attached to the defining moments of the year that was 2015. You will find that these entries are not ranked, but played in an order that flows for the listener. Each talk break highlights some of the best films and film-music of the year, too.

As always, there are a few releases on this episode that are appearing on the show for the first time, which underscores why I wait until January to look back, allowing time for things to breathe and sink in.

Otherwise, enjoy this collection, and please pass it along to a friend.
