SINGS

Band:H.C. SLIM
Album:SINGS
Label:SVART
Format:LP
Genre:OUTSIDER FOLK

Rural legend and outsider folk artist H.C Slim had amassed quite a catalog of original songs he s demoed on a tape recorder, deep in the Eastern Finnish countryside. Over the years cassettes and CDRs began to circulate with original copies selling for high prices, before Svart Records drove out to his remote cabin to offer Slim a deal for his debut album. Evangelical visionary, and wayward preacher, H.C Slim calls forth revelations of pastoral love and rustic abandoned buildings. His song is that of the wandering missionary that brings to mind the Holy Joe pastor of John Huston s Wise Blood, wandering from town to town to find the cracks of light that spill out from heaven, amongst the decline of the backwoods. A man that spent his formative years smoking cigarettes and playing his guitar, between distilling moonshine in an old empty factory, his songs are both apocalyptic and illuminating, swelling between religious fervour and starless prophecies of biblical destruction. Songs like Wheels Of Judgement , Sweet Virgin Mary and I Obeyd A Heavenly Vision throw up Dylanesque lines with the mastery of the old greats, such as Ramblin Jack Elliot or Woodie Guthrie. However Slim s astute and contemporary flair for song-craft wouldn t be out of place on a bill with artists like Laura Marling, First Aid Kit or The Tallest Man On Earth, if his Finnish maverick and lone wolf pilgrimage lead him out of wilderness.

IV

Band:K-X-P
Album:IV
Label:SVART
Format:CD
Genre:ELECTRONIC

This is a dialogue between man and machine, say K-XP, continuing the lineage set out by Kraftwerk all those years ago. Yet a nostalgic pursuit of such past explorations this is not, IV is an album that is emblematic of K-X-P s ever-ceasing desire to move forward and explore new worlds, hurtling forward into new realms of minimal techno, icy synths and brooding atmospheres. Ultimately however, driving forward and exploring new territory is at the heart of K-X-P, both in the music itself and in their never look back approach. In fact Tomi refers to this three-track album as a pure piece of transparent bright futurism a mix of raw power, cosmic disco, modern classical and rave anthems.

IN DECAY

Band:KILL SHELTER
Album:IN DECAY
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:7" vinyl
Genre:GOTHIC DARKWAVE

Burning World Records are releasing two of the darkest and most emotive tracks taken from the debut Kill Shelter album “Damage” as a limited edition double a-side single. The 7” vinyl single features In Decay ft. Antipole & Delphine Coma backed with Bodies ft. Buzz Kull. Both tracks explore the theme of death from very different perspectives. In Decay explores the theme of loss and the inherent futility of the notion of forever. It’s an introspective story of personal grief and the impact of losing someone close to you set against a rich, dark guitar driven backdrop. Bodies in contrast tells a macabre story which takes inspiration from a suspected murder case and a related Podcast by the Australian entitled “The Teacher’s Pet”. This track explores the darker side of human nature. The backstory revolves around a disturbing cold case from 37 years ago in Australia, where the sinister disappearance of a young mother is shrouded in a veil of sordid mystery and guilt.

 

 

SPECTRES

Band:BAST
Album:SPECTRES
Label:BURNING WORLD
Format:LP
Genre:DEATH/ BLACK METAL DOOM

Repress of 300 copies of the 2014 cd (on Burning World Records) Produced by Chris Fielding(Electric Wizard, Conan) Remastered for vinyl in 2019 by James Plotkin (Khanate/Conan/Slomatics) Bast s sound is a very interesting one indeed, drawing an equal amount of influence from avant-sludge outfits like Neurosis and Eagle Twin as they do progressive black metal like Altar Of Plagues, Winterfylleth etc. The trio don t fit comfortably in either the black metal or doom niches however, with their bleak yet psychedelic vibrations existing in a world of its own. Bast have already shared stages with the likes of Nachtmystium, Ufomammut and A Storm Of Light.
