Happened might be one of the most unique and intriguing tunes we’ve encountered for some time. It prowls with a steady pace under cover of dark shadows, mesmerizing us with its tribal drums and ghostly brass. The trip hop, alt electronica, and dark folk concoction comes from Perera Elsewhere, a London born, Berlin based self proclaimed “doom-folk” producer, songwriter, and dungeon DJ. Happened is taken from Perera Elsewhere’s sophomore album All Of This, which arrives on June 2nd. The artist sings about being “insatiable” on the eerie haunting song. I find myself insatiable when it comes to this song. It wiggles its way deep beneath my skin and I can’t get enough of it. Pre-order All Of This from major services and outlets, here.

Here’s a dark, somber new tune from Chelsea Wolfe off her upcoming new album Sargent House dropping on October 16th. The new LP is titled Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs, and this track is The Way We Used To. It’s an acoustic rock piece filled with a doom-folk sound. Though this song (and probably the whole upcoming LP) is a lot less electric, the creepy, haunting feel  of her usual work is not at all less omnipotent in the music. Ms. Wolfe plans on releasing yet another album in 2013 which will lean even harder towards the electronic than her previous work. It’s pretty cool how she’s creating different sounds with every release, yet never losing sight of her own signature style and expression.

OFFICIAL VID: Chelsea Wolfe – Sunstorm

Latest video from Chelsea Wolfe is for her song Sunstorm. Compared to other work of her’s I’ve listened to, this is the least dark and most bright. The darkness in this one is hidden within the lyrics and hinted at in a wistful sadness within the song. It’s certainly not as gothic or witchy, but I like it.
