Listen to This: "Down With Heaven and Hell" by Still Corners

Darkly sparkling, ethereal, and otherworldly: Still Corners channels shades of Cocteau Twins and Keep Shelly in Athens. This track is from their album Dead Blue (Wrecking Light Records).

Listen to This: "Forever Blue" by Broken DC

This track from Broken DC is dark, heavy and spooky - just right for Fall and Halloween. I like the way the trumpet is used throughout the track. giving the song a noir-ish mood. This is from the band's new album Astragal (God Unknown Records), their first release.

Art Link: Moogs

Where would the world be without the Moog synthesizer?

Listen to This: "BB" by Kornél Kovács

This is a track from Swedish producer Kornél Kovács new album The Bells (Studio Barnhus). It's funky-spacey vibe is built around a deconstructed sample of indeterminate origin. It's just as easy to dance to as to kick back and listen to on headphones.
