Monday Morning Aural Sex: 2020-05-25 (Witch-rowave Trap-House Edition Vol. 2)

“How about a NEW podcast for a change, Pauuuullll?!”


Well, calm your fuckin’ mammaries, ‘cause it’s right fuckin’ here! Welcome one and all, all and one, to the second installment of the Witch-rowave Trap-House Edition! It’s been nearly a year since the last one. My, my, my how time flies, eh? It flies, and yet with our current sociopolitical climate, it feels like it either stands still or flies backwards. Ah well, that’s neither here nor there right now. What is here AND there right now (because it’s quantum as fuck) are a few things I want to tell you about the stuff we’ll be hearing this week.


1. Witch House, because duh. I still can’t altogether describe the genre, especially since the name isn’t particularly accurate as far as I can tell. Like I said on the first installment, Witch House is a genre I first heard about when someone was describing the music of Chino Moreno’s side-project †††(Crosses). I’ve included one of their tracks as a point of reference, but to be honest, I don’t think that’s particularly accurate either. I can say that you can generally expect songs in minor keys, vocals drenched in reverb, often minimalistic melodies, and I think you can fairly easily tell the difference between stuff in the Witch House genre as opposed to the Retrowave/Outrun/Dark Wave/Synthwave/WTFwave stuff. I think it does blend well enough though, thus why I created this edition.


2. Once again, I’ve used an image from the Neon Witch photography series by Sergey “Aku” Shetukhin, aka @akunohako on Instagram. If you like the image, go check out the rest of the series. You won’t be disappointed.


3. Almost all of these tracks are new discoveries. Almost 4 hours of them, in fact. After two Flashback editions in a row, I owe you all some new stuff, so here ya go. You’re in for quite a few treats if you’re cool enough to dig ‘em. Also, the artists from whom I included multiple tracks are some of my favorites. You’d notice that in the first edition as well. If you’re looking for avenues into these genres, those are the artists I’d point to first. Them, and some genre-specific playlists on Spotify.


Anyway, nothing else needs to be said as far as I can tell. So, ya know what that means? You know what the fuck that means. That means, that it is time, for yojne.
