Not In Love

The next addition to my “songs to play loud” compilation is Crystal Castles‘ “Not In Love” (from their second album), where Robert Smith of The Cure provides his unique voice for the vocals. The whole track sounds incredibly “dirty” and clipped, something I’m actually not too fond of, but I tolerate it here πŸ˜‰ because of the effect it has. More


On a recent “trip down memory lane” to some good old EBM I listened to the “Neurodancer” version of Front 242’s “Tragedy For You” again for the first time in years and boy, what a track. Truly one for my “songs to play loud” series. πŸ™‚More

Hecq – BΓͺte Noire

I must admit that my tolerance level for the musical genre called “Dubstep” is extremely low.
