Zola Jesus, “Dangerous Days”
–grand techno-goth, scratchy wistful vocals. love it. filmed outside somewhere among waves and rocks with Nika wearing cool hoodies and long draping outfits. She reminds me a lot of Chelsea Wolfe but with dance-y beats.
forthcoming album TAIGA – out on 7 October 2014.
Black Moth, “Room 13”
–with lead singer Harriet Bevan’s aggressive cool vocals and out-there guitar riffs, this psychedelic-metal band scores with this new track. a dark, feverish video shot in the recently unlocked servants quarters of a 200-year-old haunted mansion.
Condemned To Hope [New Heavy Soungs] will be released September 15.
Mexican Slang, “Halcyon”
cool, menacing, erotic song from this Toronto band. I played it about five times repeatedly it’s that good.

–black and white suits Nadine Shah’s haunting, deep vocals
–she’s carrying around a ball of twine, sometimes she unwinds it and sometimes she makes cat’s cradle
–he legs are enviably long in black short shorts
–she’s not nearly popular enough on even college radio and I have no idea way. her vocals pierce the soul.
band members: Tom Gavin (vocals), Gordon Bramli (DJ), Daniel Brunelle (production) and Ryan Luciani (drums)
–very energetic, upbest. electronica/ club sound.
–good beat. fairly standard video with girl in hotel room.

Leeds band consists of: Harriet Bevan – vocals, Jim Swainston – guitar, Nico Carew – guitar, Dave Vachon – bass, and drummer Dom McCready
–witchiness in the woods. Harriet Bevan’s vocals keep the music from sinking too dark. It’s an ideal combo of her sweet vocals and the band’s harder edged riffing.
–dancing around to this electronica mix with lots of piano and keys arrangements, repetition. very catchy and leaves you wanting more. whispery vocals.
