The Film That Precedes Music. “Prédateurs” by Les Discrets

Les Discrets used us with that dreamy post-rock and melancholic perfumes. In essence, “Prédateurs” preserves their specific theme, but instead it changes their shades. They somehow give up to the all metal implications and we are introduced to a kind of dark indie rock with many influences from where you can detach a shred of […]

Chris Mars – the musician and visual artist of outcasts

Chris Mars’s paintings had already been bugging my mind for a while, before I actually went one step further – into searching more about him, finding out who was behind those beautifully grotesque images.

We know many examples fulfilling this description, but I won’t enumerate them here. The interesting part is that […]

Perturbator’s “The Uncanny Valley” (Album Review)

“The Legend Says He’s Half Human, Half Synthesizer…” I remember when I first discovered Perturbator. I barely knew what the retrowave genre was all about when Humans Are Such Easy Prey hit me in the face like a jackhammer. I grinned at the title as my ears melted from the synth raging from my speakers. […]
