Blauerosen_Jointweird logoThis is the playlist that prepares for the end of the year — the soundtrack of a journey through an abandoned fairground where everything is left in a state of limbo. Our favourite albums of this month include the dynamic return of Pecadores, a cult band from Brazil, 11 years after the release of their previous album. This time they have been haunted again and have come back with their incredible mix of industrial rhythms that sometimes nod to Wumpscut and tribal percussion that bring the mind to tribal ceremonies. A special mention in due to the fantastic releases of ant-zen by vromb, thorofon and 2kilos&more who created an addictive IDM/noise/industrial symphony that kept us on edge for most of the month! TEATRE‘s album ‘Metropolis’ added to the captivating sonic mix with notes of downtempo and dark techno.

Misfortunes can act as driving forces to pursue something better or to drag you down with them. I like that contradiction.”

Logo interviewIt is quite hard to describe the feeling of coming across a band that reminds you of the qualities you value so much in music and which are somehow, lately, been set a little bit aside but most bands. This was the feeling since we came across the latest release by Misfortunes entitled ‘Brilliant Endings‘. This is a band that shines bright in the gloomy synthwave sonic universe. In fact, we were so touched by the melancholic melodies and the poetic lyrics that it became imperative that we talked with the musician behind this brilliant project, Ioakim Vasiliadis.We talked about the band’s beginning, the songs, the collaborators and the future.

logo playlistIt is always the melancholic, the eerie and the mysterious elements in music that tell the most interesting stories. We embrace Autumn and the coming Winter with a soundtrack for a dance bizarre of ghosts – real or imaginary – and creatures of the night. This month, our favourite independent music releases covered the punk, IDM, ethereal, neoclassical, downtempo and rock dimensions of the sonic spectrum. We particularly salute the beautiful come back of The Cult with a release of their new album entitled ‘Under The Midnight Sun’ as well as the new offering by Nox Arcana – ‘Darkfall’, like clockwork in time for the celebration of Samhain.

Monthly playlist- Favourite albums August 2022

logo playlistThe acceptance of a condition described by the word ‘bizarre’ must come when enveloped by a sinister soundscape. The dreamy state that ensues after such an acceptance should have elements of hypnotic psychedelia. You must listen to this playlist for two reasons: it contains an ancient curse set to music and one of the strangest, more obscure and obscene releases of the year so far. We are of course referring to the new album ‘Drift‘ by Heilung and the crazy release entitled ‘BORDELLOBUIO‘ by BAMBOLABUIO.

logo playlistAre black holes cannibals or is the universe a cannibal? This monthly playlist aims at taking you on an experimental, dark sonic meditational journey that leaves the mind with a numbing sensation and the soul with a difficult-to-satisfy ‘hunger’.  Starting off inside melodic and dark IDM sonic spaces, we are offering a trip into dark ambient, heavy psych rock, post-punk, coldwave soundscapes which ends on the top of a hill filled with Scottish folk melodies.

We were particularly excited for having Empusae‘s latest offering on this playlist, ‘Praeter‘, coming three years after his previous release. ‘Walls‘ the new release by Hollow Columns alongside Maya Shenfeld‘s ‘In Free Fall‘, added the dark ambient, poetic and cryptic tone that this conceptually obscure playlist needed in order to properly place itself in the realm of dark music. Further along, Vlimmer‘s new EP made us want to remind ourselves of the music of Diary of Dreams, while Biosphere‘s fascination with 70s post-punk electronics and the way this was translated into an improvisational psychedelia was a particularly fascinating moment during the creation of this playlist.

 

We hope you enjoy this playlist as much as we enjoyed making it.

logo playlist A dance to death by a songbird in boghz as it navigates the world in a year of no light! It is flying through urban places best left to rot together with their self-defying, self-loathing inhabitants. It only stops momentarily when it hears a heart beating fast in agony. It only takes off again when the sorrow reaches manageable levels. The sound it creates when it flaps its wings is only audible to creatures looking for sonic disquiet. Can you hear it? Can you bear it?     

If this playlist were a soundtrack for a ball, it would be for a dance-macabre. Borrowing aesthetic elements from black and white movies about ghosts and twisting and turning them so that they end up sounding as an injured animal that roars, this monthly playlist is not for the faint-hearted light seekers. Enjoy it!

If you don’t learn to laugh at life it’ll surely kill you, that I know-BROM

logo playlistMarch was a dark month, especially in the UK as it was the month when the lockdown measures were put in place, creating a new situation even for the reclusive misfits of society. The sonic output of this month was rich but we did not find it as easy, to identify truly exceptional releases. There were many EPs and albums that confused us both with the plurality of their influences and with the fact that the bands seemed to be unable to make sonic sense out of all this. Once again it was the most experimental approaches to sound that fascinated us and a spirit of relentless energy that has been retained and enhanced from all-time favourite bands.

Dark Door a.k.a Mario D’Aniello and Federica Velenia, is a band that was formed in Naples and a band that you should know about, because their music is beautiful and their performances are emotionally and visually very strong! They have self-released 4 Logo interviewalbums so far, whose music is more an outlet of their feelings than a desire to create music of a certain style.Inspired by the damned poets, darkness in aesthetics and the darkness in the world, Dark Door give to these elements an attractive musical and visual form. We had the great chance to see them perform live as part of a special Dead&Buried event last month, which was carried out in a suitable venue which does not pose any health and safety risks to an audience and can accommodate the sound requirements for a gig.Everyone had a lot of fun during that gig, everyone was dancing all the time and Blaue Rosen loved this band so much, that we had to talk with them about their influences, the symbolism in their visuals and their sources of inspiration.
