Today, I brought in new music from a musician, poet, and author. His name is Wesley Eisold; he used to front several hardcore bands (like American Nightmare; I used to really like them), but now records experimental synthpop under the name Cold Cave.
You may think that someone who comes from a hardcore background and produces experimental synthpop might not be making music that's too radio-friendly, but quite a few tracks on Cold Cave's new album Cherish the Light Years definitely are just that (and by radio-friendly, I don't mean mainstream; I mean that the tracks translate well on the airwaves).
I can't describe his music more precisely than British newspaper The Guardian: "Wesley Eisold is an absolutely new, young god of nihilism and despair - he brilliantly captues Cold Cave's aesthetic: the Morrissey of How Soon Is Now wailing over Nitzer Ebb beats and New Order melodies."
And with that, I played "Pacing Around the Church" from Cold Cave's new album Cherish the Light Years (Wesley has some decent ink - check it out on that last link).
