About this item

If you've already checked out the Salem, Zola Jesus, Balam Acab and OoOOo releases, plus the "F*>K Dance, Let's Art" compilation you'll already be aware of the whole 'witch house', 'ghost step' and 'drag' sound that's been eminating from (mostly) America this year. These new genres combines elements of electronica, industrial, hip-hop, goth and shoegaze, with fractured beats, eerie, melancholic vocals and layers of doomy synth noise all combining to bring us a new sound for 2010. In association with Disaro Records, "Isvolt" features nine acts from across America, Europe and Australia, all of whom have previously only released on ultra-low run, self distributed CD-Rs or DVD-R / VHS or sold out 45s. Dark and murky, like the damp walls in and unfinished cellar, these acts will, as my nanna might have said, give you the willies.
