Tarot Chords lay before you to conjure more than what we currently have. They tell of a future unlike our own. A future we’re in dire need of. The tale of renaissance and the cold rediscovery of the creative spirit. Witch house, drag, ghost drone, dark wave, dark snyth, witch bass, zombie rave and sometimes even seapunk will find their way into the notes of this feature. These sounds are brought to “life” by composers who not only to test the boundaries of music today, but most importantly the paradigms that envelope it.
Welcome – you might hear a punky harsh synth from Crim3s (previously known as Story of Isaac), a peaceful yet haunting vocal from Holy Other, or the icy chill of Toronto’s own B∆SSCULT. That’s what makes this post unique – there are no boundaries and we’re not likely to see any given the stage of this new “genre”. With dubstep singing its swan song on MTV, witch house and the paranormal passions it brings are picking up the slack. For your consideration – Tarot Chords Vol. 1.
Most of these aren’t new, but we expect you to not be warm to this type of music. Think of this as your induction, your pledge. All of this in the hopes that you see the symmetry of our task.
