Demdike Stare-- A Forest of Evil (Dawn)

Look at that cover art. Isn't that a thing of beauty? And it compliments the music inside perfectly. I've been listening to the new Sleep Over and Panda Bear singles like my life depended on it lately. I've also been listening to a lot of Goblin lately too. Some how Demdike Stare fits that theme well.

Demdike Stare is made up of Sean Canty (who runs the awesome Finders Keepers label) and Miles Whitaker (who runs the Modern Love label and released one of my favourite albums of last year under the guise of Daughter Of The Industrial Revolution). Now this song is a ten minute journey into the sort of nightmarish stuff that Goblin created on the Suspiria soundtrack. I guess it's electronic music but it feels limiting even to use that broad term. Regardless, it's the sort of stuff that sticks with you long after the final notes ring out. For all of you wanting to see a horror film tonight but only having ten minutes to spare, enjoy.
