Cold Cave is the electronic music of acclaimed musician, writer and artist Wesley Eisold. Beginning in 2007, Cold Cave has become a name synonymous with the contemporary resurgence of Darkwave and Synth Pop sub-genres, propelling Cold Cave to perform at world class museums The Getty and the Guggenheim, as well as performances with legends Sonic Youth, The Jesus and Mary Chain, among others. The sound has spanned from experimental industrial noise to rock'n'roll influenced electronic music.
According to the Guardian, "Wesley Eisold is an absolutely new, young god of nihilism and despair – he brilliantly captures Cold Cave's aesthetic: the Morrissey of How Soon Is Now wailing over Nitzer Ebb beats and New Order melodies."
According to Eisold, if anything, his music reflects what it feels like to live in the present. Eisold, whose baritone is as rich and resonating as that of Phil Oakey, Nick Cave or Iggy Pop, says "Of course we love the lineage of the genre, early experiments with machines to convey human emotion; the marriage between pop and industrial music. At the time it was documenting the early stages of a new world, and we are recording what it feels like to be alive in that world.
Brenmar was a name given to me by my then 2 year old brother. Born in Chicago, living in NYC, this is club music for the present. My songs/mixes usually revolve around money, sex, and party. Sometimes a little heartache.
Boyd Rice / NON announces the release of a new album, Back To Mono, on 22 October 2012. Back To Mono is a return to Boyd Rice’s noise roots, and the first new album since 2002’s Children Of The Black Sun.
Back To Mono’s tracklisting encompasses brand new recordings – made with Wes Eisold (Cold Cave), NY producer Bryin Dall (Thee Majesty / Hirsute Pursuit) and long time collaborator Z’ev, alongside unreleased studio and live recordings from the late 70s, plus a cover of The Normal’s ‘Warm Leatherette’, Mute’s first release which, explains Rice, is “the best electronic pop song – bar none. I bought that single fifteen minutes before meeting Daniel. And that meeting changed my life.”
Jokers of the Scene
Every artist claims to defy categorization. Yet for Jokers Of The Scene, it's not a boast - it's a lifestyle.
For the past few years, Jokers Of The Scene have ranked amongst the brightest, weirdest lights of Canada's dance music renaissance. Between their Fool's Gold originals and their enviably deep remixography, the duo have passed on a "signature sound" to craft an unpredictable approach that'...s as cerebral as it is speaker-decimating.
Whether crafting epic, nine minute Salem remixes or raving out with their own anthemic tracks like "Revolting Joks" and "Baggy Bottom Boys," Toronto duo Jokers Of The Scene have proven themselves masters of electronic music in all its forms. Their latest project, the J0T5 EP, may prove their most expansive yet, as Linus Booth and Chris Macintyre have created music perfect for home listening and strobe-lit warehouses alike.
The five tracks on J0T5 pulsate through ambient synth excursions, vintage sci-fi soundtracks, and experimental techno, somehow managing to connect the dots along the way. Equally diverse is the accompanying J0T5 RMXD EP. Here, the duo's peers and contemporaries like Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), Shadow Dancer (BNR), Hrdvsion (Wagon Repair), Savile & Olin, Cosmic Kids (Throne Of Blood), Gingy & Bordello (Turbo) and Babe Rainbow (Warp) each take turns driving the Jokers' new material into new and unexpected directions.
Keep your antennae locked in to JOTS' wavelength for whatever surprise comes next...
