For some reason I can’t explain I have an extra $25 balance in my account this month. I did just roll over to a new year’s subscription, so perhaps it’s a bonus? I don’t remember buying a booster pack. Regardless, I have a big whack of downloads for the month!
EBM goodness from Tom Shear:
Cevin Key doesn’t make things easy for the listener, and his Download project is probably the most inaccessible to the casual fan, even compared to the harshest of Skinny Puppy’s output, but I love it.
I’ve long been a fan of Grouper, so when I saw a bunch of new material on EMusic, I had to grab it all.
This one is a reissue of a split release between Grouper and Inca Ore:
This was recommended by EMusic, so I gave it a try:
Ever since I first heard Miranda Sex Garden, I’ve had a mad music-crush on Katharine Blake. Originally a Miranda Sex Garden side-project, Mediaeval Baebes has become Katharine Blake’s full-time project. Wonderful!
I discovered Nadja thanks to the amazing internet radio station and blog Strangeways Radio, as part of their shoegaze spotlight series. An absolutely awe-inspiring blend of shoegaze and drone metal, I had to grab everything I could find on EMusic. Also worth buying is their cover album, [When I See the Sun Always Shines On TV](http://nadja.bandcamp.com/album/when-i-see-the-sun-always-shines-on-tv, particularly for the mind-blowing Long Dark Twenties, a re-imagining of a Paul Bellini (Kids in the Hall) song from the Brain Candy soundtrack.
A couple of months ago I downloaded [Creatures of an Hour by Still Corners](http://www.emusic.com/listen/#/album/still-corners/creatures-of-an-hour/12859106/ ; I was so impressed, I had to return for the rest.
World’s End Girlfriend makes haunting, disturbing, and ultimately beautiful music.
