Once again BandCamp's tags say more than I could write here: electronic experimental experimental electronic bass drag ethnic trap ethno rave trap trapwave witch house witchhouse zombie rave Russia.

Be sure to also check out their side project Πлачь Ʒемля's new release Традиция.

Myriad Drone
Demo EP

Myriad Drone was brought to my attention by Instagram's recommendation emails, to my surprise. Their Demo EP and new track The White Lodge (Laura Palmer's Theme) is atmospheric post rock from New Zealand.

Russian Circles
Memorial

Somehow I have overlooked Russian Circles' new release in 2013, Memorial. Instrumental post-rock that shows off various faces of the genre to great effect.

Nadja
Queller

Nadja's most recent (2014) release Queller (free to listen on BC) brings you atmospheric yet powerful noises. Their [extensive back catalog] is impressive as well.

Blush Response
Tension Strategies

Tension Strategies is the second album by Blush Response. A gritty electronic soundtrack for our gritty electronic lives. #audioCountry 070

Technolorgy
Dying Stars

Dying Stars by Technolorgy brings you uplifting EBM from Greece. As always free to listen to on BandCamp.

I've noticed that "pay what you like" offerings seem to be few and far between lately. Have I missed a shift? Or has it always been this way?

Waveshaper
Exploration 84

Exploration 84 by Waveshaper has a nice set of tags that really tell you all need to know: 80's 80s electronic chillout electro outrun retrowave soundtrack synth synthpop synthwave Stockholm

Perturbator
The Uncanny Valley

Imagine a Blade Runner game running on a classic Game Boy soldered to a Diesel-powered MIDI controller. That's the closest analogy I can come up with for Perturbator's amazing new release The Uncanny Valley (pay what you want on Bandcamp).

If you enjoy this, there is now way around Perturbator's previous releases: Terror 404, I Am The Night and Dangerous Days.

Trautonist
Trautonist

Trautonist's self-titled debut album brings you black metal from western Germany. Personal favorite genre I haven't heard of before: Blackgaze.


065 2016-05-02

Soulwax
Belgica

For the soundtrack (free listening) to the 2016 film Belgica, artists Soulwax invented 16 fictional bands and recorded their songs. Personal favorite: Çölde Kutup Ayisi by Kursat 9000.

Compilation
The Sound of Young China 2015

Wooozy is thrilled to present The Sound of Young China 2015 Mixtape. From sunny Guangzhou and cyberpunk Chongqing to the frigid northeast grasslands beyond Beijing. From shoegaze to “riot-weird”. This is the sound of China’s young and restless.

Diasterpeace
It Follows

US artist Disasterpeace created the soundtrack to the 2014 horror movie It Follows. The Music - free to listen on BandCamp - is an elementary part for evoking a constant feeling of dread throughout the movie.

Both movie and soundtrack are heartily recommended. You can find the movie on various streaming services. It may look like a teen movie at first glance, but I assure you that a second glance is worth it (unless you hate horror flicks in general).

Fraunhofer Diffraction
Five Months of Wandering

Does russian witch house sound like a thing you might be interested in? It should. Go listen to Five Months of Wandering by russian artist Fraunhofer Diffraction or the rest of this prolific artist's BandCamp catalog.

The ever wonderful BandCamp tags for this album: electronic ambient industrial neoclassical noise synth pop witch house Russia

Defekt 86
sex and suicide

I saw defekt 86 live over a year ago when they opened for Tuxedomoon in Cologne. It took a few songs, but they grew on me. Their new release sex and suicide is free to listen on Bandcamp. As are most of their previous releases.

Bandcamp's (apt) tags: alternative darkwave gothic rock indie post-punk Köln

God Module
False Face

God Module's 2014 album False Face is a straightforward EBM album. All the right noises in the right places.

Their new album Prophecy also sounds great. If you are into this sort of music, be sure to check out Metropolis Records' expansive catalog on BandCamp and while away the day.
