Did the term "chillwave" make you retch? Looking around this evening, it looks like the term Witch House might stick. A floating point between glo-fi, goth, post-punk, library music hauntology, drone, doom ambient and a spooky pouch of other things. And bad Italian horror movies, apparently.
Ghost Trance, maybe. Heh. Have a listen. I must admit, I’m liking some of this, in a troubling reminiscent-of-youth way:
I picked up the White Ring/oOoOO split 7″ as a download the other month. They’ve been ringfenced by some commentators as part of this whole thing. As have a band evidently called †‡†, who I may rename “Twats” as it turns out “†‡†” is unsearchable nonsense on the internet. Several of these bands are big on using symbols as part or all of their names, which seems to just confuse the fuck out of Google.
These people like their crosses. Like Gr†ll Gr†ll.
