r-1564989-1228841813Final – Dead Air (Utech)

“Dead Air” is Justin Broadrick’s next installation in dark ambient saga that he’s been creating under the moniker Final since the early 80s. Beyond ambient, it also brings forward some of the noise/power electronics elements that characterized his early work, and, according to Brainwashed, is “some of the rawest Final work that he’s released yet.”

Samples – Slow Air / Subterraine / Dead Air


Bohren & Der Club Of Gore – Dolores (Ipecac)

“Dolores” is a follow-up to German “doom jazz” band 2005 “Geisterfaust” full-length and just like its predecessor it came out on Mike Patton’s label Ipecac Recordings. According to Brainwashed, this is one of the band’s best records yet and ” Dolores is something of a return to form; at the very least it’s a return to the sound that made Bohren a band loved by so many.”

Samples – Staub / Welk / Von Schnabel
