Dark and ominous is how Heart Is A Far Light begins before it starts swirling around in foggy beauty and a soft, soothing melody. It’s the first single from WIFE’s debut album What’s Between, which comes out on June 10 on Tri-Angle. Oddly enough, WIFE is the solo project of one James Kelly, whom you might know from the now defunct black metal band Altar of Plagues. Obviously, Kelly has decided to explore very disparaging areas of music composition since then. There are moments on this ghostly tune that remind me of more hushed, sparse music by Trent Reznor, particularly from when he created music with his How To Destroy Angels project, but far less industrial, and somewhat The xx like.

Funny how I inadvertently line up my posts for the day. Here’s another one somewhat related to Jay-Z. British producer Evian Christ recently signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation, but he’ll still be dropping his debut EP on Tri Angle on March 17, which is great news, since I’m quite fond of Tri Angle Records. Waterfalls is the killer title track off the EP, a mesmerizing, bombastic, futuristic explosion of hip hop and electronic sound.

British producer Evian Christ creates trippy, dubby, amazing soundscapes in his electronic pieces. He does no less on his latest, Salt Carousel. A slow, wonky beat is paired with hyper speed vocals, and the end result is mind twisting sick. It’s sinister. It’s bizarre. It’s off kilter, skittery, and mind boggling delicious. Pure evil. Salt Carousel will be on Evian Christ’s Waterfall EP which will be out early next year on the always edgy and futuristic Tri Angle.

OFFICIAL VID: WIFE – Bodies

October 3, 2012

WIFE is the brand new project of James Kelly, better known for Altar of Plagues, his Irish black metal band. The man apparently has a lot of versatility, as the new project is more along the lines of electric, dark future pop. WIFE will release a debut EP titled Stoic in November off none other than the label Tri Angle. The sound fits right in with Tri Angle’s offerings. It’s heavy, hazy, shadowy, and witchy.  File this right next to Purity Ring.

oOoOO’s Headphone Highlights session

March 21, 2012

Yes, I’m doing a complete 180 from the last post. oOoOO did an awesome session for Redbull Music Academy Radio. Listen to the dark, choppy, screwy set below along with some description from oOoOO himself. And here’s the description on Redbull Music Academy’s website:

Yeah, okay, we got it – witchhouse was meant to be a joke, so was zombie wave and downtempo crunk. But, mind you, oOoOO is serious business. With a sharp ear for dreamy dark pop melodies, Swishahouse grooves and heavy bass action, Frisco representative oOoOO (just say ‘OH’) caused excitement and awe just as his stage name would suggest. Starting out as a punk band guitar slinger, young Christoph Dexter Greenspan got sucked in by the mysterious impact of early Wu-Tang, and the combination of dirty drum loops and ghostly apparitions stuck with him for good. Fooling around with the screwed & chopped aesthetics of the Dirty Dirty, elements of goth and shoegaze, oOoOO kick-started a proper hype with what was once dubbed “dirge-disco, like Chic on downers”. His self-named debut EP saw the light of day in 2010 on quality imprint Tri Angle where his next release, ‘Our Loving Is Hurting Us’, is in the pipeline for Spring 2012. In this episode of Headphone Highlights, oOoOO deciphers the main influences of his soundtrack for a decelerated youth.

I don’t take witch house as a joke. Perhaps the name of the genre started as a joke, but I have no qualms continuing to call that stuff by this name. I like that name. Sue me.

If Washed Out’s amazing track Amor Fati isn’t dreamy enough for you already, here’s the Clams Casino Remix. It’s slightly more psychadelic and dream inducing. The remix is actually darker, unlike the bright original, and has a hint of more ominous, menacing sound, so perhaps it’s a bit more nightmare inducing than dream inducing. Clams Casino is a hip hop and electronic producer from New Jersey who’s on the up and up. It’s only fitting that he brings a slightly darker sound to Washed Up’s track, as he’s labelmates with some dark artists on Tri Angle.
