Kitsch 2012 Best Albums Bitsches

didn't get near enough love on sputnik or elsewhere. when i first listened, it definitely sounded like liars, but not as fast or heavy or danceable. but after a few listens, it soaked in. their best release to date. its heavy in a different way, in a way that emerges from the interplay and you only realize it once its got too much momentum to stop, (see title track). i also saw these guys two years in a row, hellz yeah
the seer

3 various artists
port out, starboard home

probably AOTY if i were judging by sheer amount of times i had listened. only one, maybe two tracks lacking on this stellar 16 track, 80 minute compilation, put out by one of the best new industrial labels out there. the perfect blend between noise and synth tones, rhythm and chaos. all of these songs have a cohesive sound, and flow together like an LP by one artist would. they all have the common theme of depicting sex slave trade, and the comp is dedicated to 'all the boys and girls who got lost'. the motifs are surprisingly well represented. the sound of someone taking a shower (final track) can be surprisingly haunting
4 dante augustus scarlatti and agakus
brainwave saturation

blackened drone doom; fucking excellent. heaviest release this year.
5lust for youth
growing seeds

our little swede/dane are growing up. *tear* and showing their pop sensibilities. what used to be barely held together droney darkwave, is now tightly controlled gothic synthpop with some amazing hooks. this doesnt mean theyre exactly accessible to everyone yet: they haven't abandoned their signature warbled, ghostly postpunk unintelligible vocals. and a few tracks still utilize noise, some even capturing it into the rhythm section
6cremation lily
votive mirror

best release in a while. synths return to the sound, which had been noticeably absent for a few releases. this dude just never quits, my favorite noise/industrial artist active today.
7 X-TG
Desertshore/The Final Report

Throbbing Gristle ?ceased to exist? (for the second time) when Genesis P. Orridge capriciously quit the band during their European comeback tour in 2010. The remaining three members decided to continue under the name XTG, since, according to Sleazy, it was not ?possible for any changed band or variation of personnel to perform live as Throbbing Gristle without all the original four of us on stage.? The forthcoming double album Desertshore / Final Report is thus the result of ?XTG? sessions. First conceived by Peter ?Sleazy? Christopherson, who died on November 25th, 2010, Desertshore is a ?re-imagined? cover version of Nico?s album of the same name. It was completed by Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti, and features guest vocalists Gaspar No, Blixa Bargeld, Marc Almond, Sasha Grey, and Antony Hegarty. Needless to say, this owns.
8 sutekh hexen

the most noisey, droney and atmospheric work that this stellar black noise project has released. and dont get frightened by 'black noise' --- its still very much raw raw BM
9 cremation lily
age of consent

yes, the second CL release on here. this is fucking disturbing. comes with a handwritten lyric sheet detailing his own experiences with child molestation watersports and a condom that has 'never tell' written on it. the music is pretty fucked up too.
10 s&m 57
purity and propaganda

ok, this isnt stellar or anything, but its a great little ep i listen to constantly. lofi post punk. its really great, and deserves attention, so im putting it here. only 3 tracks though.
