Of the Wand & the Moon - The Lone Descent

My new obsession. I know i'm a little late in the game for getting into Of the Wand & the Moon, but whatever. Maybe it was worth it because i got to hear this album with fresh, virgin ears. It kind of reminds me of if Death in June and Damien Jurado collaborated. A true golden achievement.

Sedativ - 2002-2003

Oh, hey there Gloomy Gus. You want some new music? Here you go, listen to this album of wrist-cutting post-punk recorded during 2002 and 2003 by Roman Sidorov of Staruha Mha. See ya round, buddy!

Law of the Rope - Beasts Will Have You

Super crazed, frantic, and (literally) insane sounding black metal from three individuals (women, i think?) hailing from LA. Sure, the music (mostly the vocals) is weird enough that it was probably made by some art students who were making coco rosie clone tunes back in '05, but who cares? Sometimes you need those people to come into your xenophobic room of desolation and shake shit up a bit.

August's edition of the Golden Mix was made for my good friend Ryan. He lives in Canada now, but he used to be my roommate a long time ago. This mix tape was his gift for being one of my groomsmen when i got married this past August...hence it being a little more upbeat than most of my mixes.

You can check out his tumblr here. It's got a bunch of his art and photography and shit.
