8bit video game music. Takes me places. Last time listening it took me to researching how to build a bluetooth adapter into an original MiniDisc player, and then to the local retro game store fishing for Game Boy cartridges.
It’s like post-rock with grunge aesthetics. Atmospheric but also dirty and noisy. So interesting that they identify as psychedelic black metal. I can see that, too.
If this blog was a metal album… Images generated with Midjourney, fonts from 1001fonts. It’s kinda insane what you can do in 30 minutes with AI and free resources.
Smooth liquid drum and bass backdrop music.
Amazing stoner hard rock. Gives me all the mandatory vibes of the genre, feels fulfilling.
This band is such a perfect krautrock blend where alternative rock meets coldwave. I’ve seen them live once, they were so professional and maintained this spot-on atmosphere during their whole set.
I saw Adam Tristar on a goth club night headlining after like ten other concerts. It was a duo performing live and they stood out so much from the others, like it would be a professional act after a list of DIY bedroom bands. Well, that’s probably a pretty good approximation of what happened.
The music is all along the goth aesthetics with electronic coldwave synths. Hits close to my heart.
This is a very nice IDM record. Other than that, my relationship to this is quite neutral, and saying that as a long time Aphex Twin fan. It just doesn’t have any specificity to this time and place, and it also doesn’t invoke memories strongly enough so it would be clearly on the nostalgia side. It’s like the B sides collection of records from twenty years back. It’s… fine.
Peaceful downtempo electronics. Music to work by.
Definitely one of my new personal hypes for this year. It is an epitome of a goth rock album that is right in the middle lane of my alley, pretty much occupying the whole street. It’s a perfect, epic record that gives me goosebumps. It’s also interesting how some heavy metal flavor is sprinkled in here and there.
I just checked my Last.fm stats and this album is already on the top of my artist and album lists for 2023. Wow, I knew I listened to this a lot, but I wasn’t aware this much. And with every listen it just grows stronger.
