No More

No More is a minimal-electro/post-punk band that has been kicking out the jams since 1979. The first track I discovered was "Suicide Commando," which lead me to immediately do some further research, due to my love of the Johan van Roy project by the same name. And what do you know, the Suicide Commando I've been jamming out to for years now actually got its name from the No More track. Whoa! I'm still digging through their rather extensive discography, but so far I'm enjoying No More very much. And maybe you will too. Only one way to find out...

Malaria!

Formed in Berlin, Germany in the early-early 80's by previous members of Mania D, Malaria!'s experimental gothy post-punk feels fresh even in 2017. It's hard to find much history of the outfit online, but apparently they toured with The Birthday Party and John Cale, therefore making them one of the first bands to bring this particular brand of German music to the USA [source]. So get out your bug spray, because otherwise you're about to be infected with... Malaria!

Beläten

While digging through Bandcamp today, I ran across a goldmine of a label in Beläten out of Sweden. The label specializes in the darker aspects of electronic music, such as darkwave, cold wave, experimental, witch house, etc. So far I've only listened to about a quarter or less of their releases, but everything I've heard so far is of stellar quality. I'll be keeping my eye on this label, and diving more into their back catalog for sure. Here are the ones I've jammed out today. Inspiring stuff. Check 'em out!
