The master of moodiness Tor Lundvall returns with Beautiful Illusions, a sad but sometimes gorgeous collection of breathless ambient wallowing.
This phase of Coil, explained by them as more "feminine", "lunar consciousness musick" in contrast to their previous "solar" phase, featured extensive use of organs, electric viola, and other synthesizers, a greater range of vocal experimentation.
Brooklyn's Wetware have created a wild collection of industrial noise on Flail that sounds more like an intense fever dream than anything else.
The oppressive level of noise on VR Sex's Human Traffic Jam, Noel Skum's monotone vocal delivery, and the weird but unengaging tangents make this album very much an acquired taste.
SRSQ channels the essence of ethereal darkwave with post-punk variation and experimentation, fueled by her impressive vocal range to produce Unreality.
Dark, dangerous, and wrapped in anarchic black leather, ADULT. return with a stunning record that matches the feverish spirit of 2003's Anxiety Always.
