“More than one has wound up dead”

To celebrate the launch of Serial Killer Z, I thought I’d post this zombie themed video from The Bonnevilles’ latest album. Bear in mind, it does get a bit gruesome so if you’re squeamish check out this video instead. No Law in Lurgan is from Arrow Pierce My Heart.   I’m one of a whole bunch […]

“then molecules were everywhere”

The Doubleclicks have appeared here several times but they have a new album out and the video for this track is excellent so here we go… Big Bang is from Love Problems and you can buy or listen to it on Bandcamp.

“Flying like a lost crow”

I’ve forgotten where I found this video but I love the animation and the simplicity of the song by Mike Doughty. It’s from his album- The Heart Watches While the Brain Burns. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I love the title and it’s next up on my Apple Music playlist. Sign up for my newsletter […]

“Dress me like the front of a casino”

I’m pretty sure the last music video I posted was Alexandra Savior, but Mirage has been on regular rotation on my playlist since it was released and I make no apologies for posting another one. I’m still looking forward to hearing the full album, Belladonna of Sadness, once it’s finally released. Sign up for my newsletter and […]

“In my mind, I’ve acquired a tangle I can’t undo”

I discovered Alexandra Savior through the True Detective 2 soundtrack (which is excellent) and I’ve been following her releases ever since. Apparently there’s an album on the way soon, but in the meantime, she’s been drip feeding some really good individual tracks, including this one – Mystery Girl. And this one… M.T.M.E. I’m looking forward to […]

“Everybody knows the good guys lost”

My wife and I were lucky enough to see Leonard Cohen when he visited Vancouver a few years back and it was one of the best gigs we’ve been to. His albums drop into my music rotation on a regular basis and his book, Beautiful Losers, was one of the first I bought when I moved to […]

“I don’t recognise who I see”

A few weeks ago I posted some old school goth by The Mission. Now it’s time for some new old school goth by The Mission. Met-amor-phosis is the first track from The Mission’s new album – Another Fall From Grace. Having listened to it a bunch of times it actually makes me quite optimistic for the […]

“Whiskey and the devil and the witching hour”

I was introduced to The Mission (or The Mission UK if you’re in the US)  in college because I wore a lot of black. A friend of mine gave me a tape (yes, cassette tape) and said “you’ll like this”. The logic behind the gift was that as I wore black all the time, I must be […]

“I’m going to wrap it up”

Thanks to Joe Hill (have you read The Fireman yet) for this one – Anna Karina dancing to The Chasers‘ Inspiration. [“I’m going to wrap it up” by Philip Harris first appeared on Solitary Mindset on 27th July 2016]
