    Well, thanks a lot. How am I going to explain to the wife that I knocked over this candle and burned a pentagram into the rug?!

    This is pretty nice. Scratches an itch similar to early Zola Jesus?

    I’ve been listening to a lot of “deep & dark” too, but it’s been a techno kind of year for that for me.Report

      Hey, that is what throw rugs are for!

      Zola Jesus is a name that often comes up when talking about Wolfe, with both the darkness and the popness of it. You might also like True Widow if this vein appeals.Report

    “black metal stalwarts Burzum”


    “black metal stalwart Burzum”

    would also accept:

    “racist jackass stalwart Burzum”


    “one really good album but otherwise largely crapass catalogue stalwart Burzum”*

    unrelated to the nonsense i wrote above, her cover is of a largely junk burzum song and is also largely junk, though i generally like her voice a lot. the music is often too boring, sadly. after the fall is a good exception, though – why can’t the rest of her work be that driving and catchy and meaty? bleh.

    the 4ad / 2nd wave industrial connection is very obvious, maybe a bit godflesh-y around the edges. metal is a significant stretch, though we’d accept “cribs heavily from mid 2000s ben frost” in a pinch. a lot of wolfe’s production work stuff reminds me of the opening track from theory of machines.

    i think with the right producer she’d kill it for an entire album. cosey would be an obviously awesome choice. or one of the guys from fck buttons. better yet, just use andrew weatherall, as he did wonders for them. i would not mind a gira/wolfe split in the slightest presuming she can stay far enough away from jarboe-isms.

    also since i’m here, it’s “swans” not “the swans”. he did do a good job on to be kind, though.

    i will show myself out now. hail satin.

      Nice to see you D’Hex, and points well taken. Thank you for clearing things up on the metal end and I will leave my Swans mistake as testament to your thoughts.Report
