Grabbitz ~ The Ugly

Nicholas Chiari (aka Grabbitz) is a non-stop merry-go-round of catchy wonderous electro-pop sights and sounds that never fails to impress. Like the protagonist in his video, he seems to be driven, nay chased by an alter-ego with breathless abandon, perchance a faceless personification of death or time, and always to new and wildly different heights. Grabbitz’s work has been featured here before with his wall-of-sound … Continue reading Grabbitz ~ The Ugly

Lonely Walk – PGL (Pretty Good Looking)

Another exceptional band from Bordeaux, France, Lonely Walk has been kicking around since releasing a number of EPs to critical acclaim between 2010 and 2014 (VIHS, NGHTMR, and BORE) culminating in their full-album release of TEEN in 2015 containing said track “PGL“.

MSI has been around-the-block, bought the t-shirt, and worn it threadbare since the early days when they released their eponymous debut album back in 1995.

Yet, they’re also smart and knowing that money earned from CD … Continue reading Mindless Self Indulgence – Shut Me Up (Uncensored)

Sure – Precious Words

Another incredible band from Paris, France, Sure is “…made to dance on the ruins of a world bleeding its sense out a little more each day.” Amen to that. This stream-of-bloody-consciousness song and video should serve to remind that angry high-energy music serves its own purpose. PIL frontman Johnny Rotten once said “anger is an energy” — indeed it is and it can be channeled … Continue reading Sure – Precious Words

Schrödinger – Bloody Eyes

A lot of the music I enjoy could be considered by some to be unconventional (yes, I’m strange even by goth standards). Well, how about a little gothic-surfer music? Schrödinger dropped this track from their debut album “Last Days on Earth” appropriately released on Halloween in this year of our lord, 2020. For many of us, the album title is unfortunately more than a little … Continue reading Schrödinger – Bloody Eyes
