Exhumations, Music

Severed Heads

Today's exhumation reveals a quite fantastic specimen out of Australia by the name of Severed Heads. The duo has been kicking out electronic music as far back as the late 70's. They also have several fantastic videos with classic 80's visual effects that are as pure as the music itself (unlike the ironic cheesiness of such effects we're bombarded with today). Hop on into the guillotine yourself below, and enjoy!

Music, Spotlights

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!
