He begins with, “I’m not in favor of the way music has evolved over the last 150 years, but I do listen to new music. My favourite composer is Strauss.” But then he lists as friends:
Darlings’ Cabinet of Sundry Horror, a theatrical and self-indulgent mess that might be my favorite new find since we opened this place. (Apples to kumquats, but the only possible competition is this guy and this gal.) Think Elvis Presley as both tortured and torturer. Think David Lynch and a lynch mob. Right now I’m listening to “A Gnostic Interpolation on Love” but so far I love it all. We’re much obliged, Fritz! (Their last.fm page is here.)
kuxaan-sum (are the k and s supposed to be uppercase?): “experimental/electronica,” from “Denver.” Download the track “Blizzarine Sundry” here. (Mental note: spend some alone time with the Backwards Records catalog. It sounds positively lush: “LIVE ELECTRONIC ACTION! Experimental, Industrial, Noize: rythmic and otherwise. IDM, HARSH, Electro, Ambient, Dub-Step, and all forms of Underground Music! Hardware, Laptop, No Top!”)
He also listens to Withered. Death metal. Big surprise, that one. But I confess the track “Gnosis Unveils” is causing me to throw my neck out.
One more? Sure. How about The Owsla?
