|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,

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

blackened drone doom; fucking excellent. heaviest release this year.
|5||lust for youth|
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
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.
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 Noé, Blixa Bargeld, Marc Almond, Sasha Grey, and Antony Hegarty.
Needless to say, this owns.

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
|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.

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
|nigs bout to get 10 new albums and redo their year lists|
|so how does 8 compare to Larvae|
|3 is comp of the year yeah|
|10 has piqued my interest, acquiring.|
Great list by the way bru
|havey, you actually know these bands|
sputnik surprised me
i think become is their best release to date, although larvae is a close second. its a substantially different sound though.
|I really liked 1. Top 10 for sure. |
I dig cremation lily but I haven't heard any of their newer output. Guess I should check it out.
3 sounds magical
|yes it is. if you get anything from this list get that. there is a rip on the blog bleak bliss|
|number 3 that is|
|sweet thanks man|
|oh i forgot|
the soft moon - zeros
excellent post punk. throwback to the early synth heavy stuff.
|Have you checked out the new Scott Walker album?|
|yeah it's in my top 20. It Black Marble and Disappears really made it a great year in post-punk for me. |
tarring rope was pretty fucking
|i havent heard the new scott walker no|
|this is from 10:|
|It seems like something you could be interested in.|
|your desc of 5 is intriguing|
|larvae made my top 25 so i'm wishlisting become hard. have you heard|
tollund men - door
darkwave of the year for me, tho growing seeds is really close
|cryo darkwave isn't for you sorry bro|
|wait wait wait, did you just say darkwave isn't for me!!!!?|
|Listened to 10, fuckin' great|
|y what about it|
|damn dude, eight of the artists on this list have more than 50 fans|
you're losing your cred
|"tollund men - door"|
completely obliterates their first demo, but that tour compilation they put out dis yr rulez 2
I like darkwave

|alright, just don't be disappointed.|
|>damn dude, eight of the artists on this list have more than 50 fans|
>you're losing your cred
best comment on this list
|didn't answer me bitsch|
|kitch, did you happen to snag It's OK to Say No? fucking missed it even though i was right there when the update came up >:[ same with the other cl tape that came out after that one, can't remember the name. |
and yeah, you need to check out the tollund men stuff from this year if you haven't
|yeah i got its okay to say no just the other day. its soooo gooood. way way way different than anything he's ever done in a pretty big way. guitar and drums noisecore stuff mixed in with normal cremation lily power electronics.|
i also got that single that there was only 10 copies of and that last cassette he just put out with demos and stuff from the nat assembly split sessions. those should be coming in a few weeks after he gets done with his shows in NY and philly.
of course i can upload these for you, but i'd like to wait until i get all of them in the mail so that i can just sit down and do it once. if you've got some cool shit to trade (ive been out of the loop on posh for a good minute) i would appreciate that.
one other thing, do you listen to Drekka that much? i think he's really good and one of my influences for my project. ive been playing shows with him and we are releasing a split in FEB or MARCH. we played a show and recorded each other's sets, then traded the material and remixed it. it is sounding pretty badass if i do say so myself. we were really able to come up with some cool compliments to each other's sounds, i think.
|ugh, now i'm even more pissed that i missed them. i would be eternally grateful if you would upload them for me. i'm sure i have something i could trade you.|
the only drekka i have is their lathe plate from AA, but i honestly haven't listened to any of the plates yet and likely won't until i get vinyl (plastic) ripping capabilities since those plates are so thin i don't want to ruin them till i can back them up, so to speak. get with me on soul seek, and we'll keep in touch
|who are you on slsk?|
|just sent you a message|
|cool ill check it when im off werk|
|i got a new computer and i couldnt remember my password so im also using the name boombitch|
