Another World (Pravda Records). Review by Bob Pomeroy.
Never Cry Another Tear (Original Signal). Review by Sean Slone.
In This Light And On This Evening (Kitchenware Records). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Angry Bear (Coming Home Records). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Too young to be fully cognizant of the more embarrassing excesses of Gothic music over the past twenty years, the young Turks of NYC’s own Blacklist are, perhaps unwittingly, the best hope of redeeming Goth-metal. Fresh from a European tour complete with horned hotel antics, Blacklist frontman and provocateur Josh Strawn told Ink 19 all about how he learned to stop worrying and love Motorhead and Scott Walker equally.
Love Comes Close (Matador). Review by Kiran Aditham.
Julian Plenti is…Skyscraper (Matador). Review by Kiran Aditham.
Shut Up and Bleed (Atavistic Records). Review by Matthew Moyer.
Primary Colours (Beggars/XL Records). Review by Matthew Moyer.
Wilderness stops three hours from where Aaron Shaul lives and he is fully committed to leaving the city to find them and prog rock salvation.
Still, Nothing Moves You (Bridge Nine). Review by Jen Cray.
Slanted Eyes, Slanted Hearts (In Music We Trust). Review by Tim Wardyn.
When Gothic godfather (oh stop it) Peter Murphy swept into Jacksonville on the 4th of July with a bag full of hits and Bauhaus classics, Matthew Moyer dropped his bottle rockets and went to check out the REAL fiireworks.
Before This Winter Ends (Self Released). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Agony & Irony (Epic). Review by Jen Cray.
1985-1987 (Smooch Records). Review by Matthew Moyer.
Editors remind Orlando audiences that it was the UK that birthed their brand of darkly deep indie rock. Jen Cray couldn’t help but wonder if they were ripping off Joy Division, or Interpol’s interpretation of Joy Division.
In the Marshes (Words on Music). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Calenture (Domino). Review by Sean Slone.
Conviction (Victory). Review by Jen Cray.
