2021-04-26 (Vantablack & Neon Edition Vol. 4)

I…

 

am profoundly…

 

exhausted…

 

But a-fucking-las, the show must go on! Emo-muthafuckin’-clew to the 4th volume of the Vantablack & Neon Edition on Monday Morning Aural fuckin’ Sex! That said, yes, I am indeed profoundly exhausted. I’ve been running on 4ish hours of sleep for the past 16 because I’m a dumb, stupid idiot who’s dumb and stupid. Nah, I just didn’t prepare properly. That shit kinda comes and goes, ya know? My dedication to puttin’ out this podcast might feel like torture sometimes, but I still think it’s worth the effort. 

 

Any-fuckin’-way, enough of all that shit. “What the backwards goose fuck is Vantablack & Neon supposed to be?”, the uninitiated might ask. Simply, goth, industrial and synthwave music. Less simply, it’s all variations of those three general genres. I hear lots of stuff in common between it all, and you likely will too if ya just sit the fuck down and give it a chance! Gosh golly-gee willickers! What? I dunno. I’m tired, bitch; don’t judge me.

 

Let us discuss the tune-age, shall we?

 

1. If you think any of this stuff doesn’t fit the theme, well, feel free to tell me about it so long as you’re polite about it. If you’re incapable of civility, well, I’m sure there are many disease-ridden moose balls you can suck somewhere out there. I don’t have the disease-ridden moose ball tracker either, so you’re on your own there.

 

2. With all these duo-theme editions, I always try to alternate between A- and B-type stuff track by track, but sometimes I over-compile and there’s more of one than the other. I could just delete whatever throws it off balance, but that would mean depriving myself and all y’all of some delectable fucktacularity. Who the fuck do you think I am? You think I’d do that to you, dearest perverts? Hell-to-the-fuck-no. So, ya know what? Asymmetry can be tolerable, and ya may have to just tolerate it. Plenty of chaos like that in the universe. Either that, or you could turn off the podcast, and maybe catch up with the moose ball suckers from #1. Don’t let me stand in your way.

 

3. As I also frequently do, I did attempt to arrange the playlist in that magnetic poetry sort of fashion. Some of the tracks relate to each other in title, lyrics, tonality, or some other way, but some don’t have much or any relation to speak of. So, if you’re listening to the podcast and you feel a sort of flow, that’s me tweakin’ shit for an hour or so behind the fuckin’ scenes. See how good I am to you? No need to tickle my testes to express your gratitude, I just want y’all to yojne.

 

4. As far as the new/old status of the tracks, well, some are returning favorites from past V&N editions, some are classics that haven’t yet made an appearance on the V&N editions, but most are brand spankin’ new, even to me. We’re all in for some delicious treats this week.

 

5. As you may recall, I said last week I wasn’t sure if there were any notable distinctions between retrowave and synthwave. Well, I finally fuckin’ looked it up! Turns out, nah, they’re pretty much synonymous. Outrun is another name for both of those, but supposedly that tends to have more video-game-style synths and tends to be purely instrumental. Know what else I just learned about that’s supposedly been a thing for a number of years now? “Fashwave…” a portmanteau of fascist and wave, and is supposedly some white-supremacist, alt-right version of “vaporwave.” Let me tell ya, I already don’t understand vaporwave. Maybe I’m getting old, but holy shit, I just don’t get the point of it. Maybe I just haven’t heard anything in the genre that appeals to me yet. All I know is I delved into it for a few hours one night, and I actually felt compelled to dig myself back up and out of the rabbit hole rather than farther down in. 

 

So, “fashwave,” eh? You can eat my asswave. Don’t forgetwave to caresswave my nutswave, and handywave my pulsatingwave prickwave. You’ve chosen the political ideology of some of the biggest losers in human history, and one day, just like them, you will lose. It’s funny, your so-called replacement theory is almost a self-fulfilling prophecy. I’d love so much to see you all disappear from existence forever so the rest of us can get some fuckin’ shit done around here, but I know there are much greater enemies who pull your strings. You’re a bunch of pitiful little puppets, and you might go your whole lives never realizing that. Truly pitiful.

 

Any-fuckin’-way, 6. Track 17 is by a group called Einstürzende Neubauten. Let’s say it together: Ein-shtur-zenda Noy-bowten. I’ll be happy to remind you of that if ever you forget. To be frank, I’m likely not even pronouncing it as well as a native German speaker, but since I’m not one, you’re stuck with me and mine until you find one your damn selves. Anyway, that group is fucking phenomenal. Do yourselves an enormous favor and look into them. Try to find some live footage and just admire the spectacle. If you’re similarly as inquisitive as I, you’ll probably love it. The first time they reeled me in, I was laying in my bed reading a book while a playlist of them and Skinny Puppy was playing. When Halber Mensch came on, fuck, I thought I’d died and was at the gates of hell. That song is haunting as 10 fucks in a canoe built for one. Highly, highly recommended.

 

7. Watch out for the fun-ass funkwave or whatever-the-fuck-wave that is the Revival track by Van Derand. New discovery of mine, and it’s danceable as fuck. I mean, most anything is danceable if ya try hard enough. That is if ya can stop bein’ such a damn neurotic ninny long enough to embrace the absurdity of life and all its impermanence, to let the music move that fuckin’ pile of flesh you’re piloting, to bask in the downright miraculous mystery of music itself and its myriad effects on the mind… You get the idea.

 

8. The Trevor Something track called The Ghost, wow. Minimalistic as fuck, but really quite satisfying nonetheless. I know I have a broad-ass palette, but give it a whirl. Y’all can skip it and run screaming back to your comfort zones if you’re uncomfortable with anything you don’t already know, but good lord, that seems like a boring-ass way to squander a life. 

 

9. Nope, no fuckin’ 9 here either. Never any nines! Nein nines!

 

10. Because fuck my entire fuckin’ life, bud. No, 10 is a shoutout to the lovely and talented proprietor of Penny Wigs, Ms. Amanda Tea, for showing me Kælan Mikla and Houses of Heaven. Yojne those tracks, and be sure to hit up Penny Wigs on Etsy for all your Vantablack and Neon style hair accessories, because eventually this pandemic will get under control, and there will be reasons to dress up again. Don’t want to be caught with your pants down when that happens, or maybe you do. That does sound like fun.
