music video : Trust – Capitol

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

The newest music video from Trust, “Capitol” off Joyland, goes in the direction of classic music videos, this one featuring a girl dancing and wandering about to the track and plenty of footage of Robert Alfons singing that will gear you up for Trust’s current tour. It’s sure to please fans more than the trippy and a bit boring first video from Joyland “Rescue, Mister”. The visuals in “Capitol”, rainbow galaxies, glowing neon, pyramids, etc., brings Joyland back to grave wave aesthetics which is good because I’ve heard some complaints that Joyland strays too far from the darkness and grittiness of the first album TRST. Alfons continues to emerge as a heartthrob as “Capitol” will make you think, “who’s that girl and why does she get to be in a Trust video?”

music video : Xiu Xiu – El Naco

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

The latest music video from Xiu Xiu for “El Naco” will keep you watching with one eye closed. This is Xiu Xiu’s second video off their latest album Angel Guts: Red Classroom and I am hoping that there will be many more!

music video : THYX – Robots Don’t Lie

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

THYX, a side project of’s mastermind Stefan Poiss, has released a new music video for “Robots Don’t Lie” off his upcoming album Super Vision due out March 25th. Self described as, “atmospheres from cyberspace, a musical image from a far-away future,” this video adds a distinct story to the futuristic sounds of THYX. The realities of constant surveillance and tracking shift into robot uprising and dictatorship; the simple story told in a 5 minute video rings true when more and more facts and realities seem to be straight out of a nightmarish science fiction book.

music video : Xiu Xiu – Stupid in the Dark

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

Murder!! The new music video “Stupid in the Dark” from postpunk art rock artist Xiu Xiu off their new album Angel Guts: Red Classroom is as intense as their music and definitely not for the feint of heart. This video is a real killer. Har har.

music video : Metal Mother – Mind_Off

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

Taara Tati, the enigmatic visionary behind neopagan darkwave project Metal Mother, recently released a video for the track “Mind_Off” from her second release, Ionika. Having had the pleasure of discovering Metal Mother just a little over a year ago, I have become, what some might call, obsessed with the music that she produces. The dark and spooky soundscapes combined with her ethereal vocals create a mood that is inherently ancient and occult in its sound. Directed by Elia Vargas, the video for “Mind_Off” plays off these unique sounds and produces visuals that are distinctly primal and leaves you feeling as if there is a powerful ancient force pulling you in. So go ahead and surrender to the music!

music video : Chelsea Wolfe – Feral Love

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Yesterday drone folk singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe released a music video for “Feral Love” off her latest album Pain is Beauty. It is a hunting video directed by Mark Pellington who has directed videos for a whole ton of notable artists and is known for his music video for Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy”. This video is part of a film titled Lone that Pellington and Wolfe collaborated on and that will be released in a streaming format and on custom-designed USB drives available through Chelsea Wolfe’s online store. On a side note, Wolfe’s look in this video is great, all black, fur and a flowing dress, paired with sharp jewelry pieces, and classic yet dark makeup made unnerving with full eye blackout contacts. You’ll probably be hearing Chelsea Wolfe all over this year if this track being recently featured in Game Of Thrones’ season 4 trailer is any indicator.

music video : Austra – Hurt Me Now

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

This week’s video “Hurt Me Now” is the fourth video from Austra’s latest album Olympia. Odd just like most Austra videos, the best part is always the chill from watching Katie Stelmanis sing.

music video : Wild Beasts – Wanderlust

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Today’s music video comes from Wild Beasts’s new album, Present Tense, out February 25th, 2014 which is described as, “a dramatically new album, taking cues from the most intense and effervescent of 1980s and 1990s electronic sound but rethinking and retooling these elements with exquisite detail for the 21st century.” “Wanderlust” is a promising track as a first glimpse at the new album, presenting an intriguing blend of dark music and unnerving yet alluring vocals.

music video : The Mission – Swan Song

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

The Mission has released a video for “Swan Song”, their second single from their recent album The Brightest Light.

The music is paired with high definition visuals of Wayne Hussey roaming a breathtaking natural landscape, creating an emotional experience.

interview : iVardensphere

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

There’s a spring of talent flowing freely in Western Canada. Subculture electronic artists like Comaduster, Virtual Terrorist, and Psykkle continue to deliver a steady stream of excellent audio creativity. Leading this charge is iVardensphere, the luminary band from Edmonton which has cut a swathe through the industrial masses with a unique tribal noise inspired sound. Creative Commander Scott Fox of iVardensphere took some time out to talk with resident Auxilanaut Hangedman about the band’s latest offering, The Methuselah Tree.
