Greetings. I wanted to continue our last post with news that Nikole from Annex has a new project titled Her Corrosion. You will find a nice collection of interviews and news in the current dark arts scene. Please go to Her Corrosion
Nikole worked very hard on the site and it’s quite a task to compile and design a site like hers. Also, if you would like to submit or contribute please contact Nikole at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, Annex released a new cover single on their bandcamp, The Cure’s “One Hundred Years” you can listen, buy, or stream. Annex are also working on their follow up LP to DESPUÉS DE VI LP, it will be released on Occult Whispers (Chicago).
Her Corrosion features a great interview with Cait Autonomy, a long time friend and contributor to Mass Media. You’ll find out all about her history and her current endeavors, which includes playing bass in Shadowhouse. YAY! Which we are finally happy to announce a limited repress of their debut LP “Hand in Hand” will be shipping in April. You can pre-order HERE.
Masses “Moloch” LP // Annex “Despues de Vi” LP // Masquerade “Blood is the New Black” 12″ // Totenwald “Wrong Place Wrong Time” 12″ // Wives “Devoted to You” LP we actually only have a few copies left of certain titles so it is limited. We are making room for our 2017 releases so please support us!
Masses from Melbourne, Australia have released their debut LP and are planning a North American tour in support of their release. The LP is a cooperative release by both Mass Media Records and Lost in Fog Records in Australia. Both labels are run by women which is a huge undertaking in and of itself. Lost in Fog is ran by Tessa who also slays in Masses! So like support us!
The album maintains the bands anxious goth post-punk style from earlier releases, this time utilizing more duel vocals from both guitarist James and synth player Nellie. MOLOCH explores both the driving anarcho sounds and politically motivated themes reminiscent of bands such as The Mob, whilst also delving into more emotive and dancey goth and post punk inspired tracks drawing from bands such as The Creatures and Lost Tribe. In my opinion if those two bands got married and had a baby it would be Masses. I’m a weirdo though, so you’ll have to listen for yourself…
The LP is available to be purchased on it’s own or as a set with a limited edition Masses enamel pin (limited quantities available). Seriously I don’t have many of these left.. I’ll be posting Masses logo earrings soon as well!
Where has the time gone? Seriously, I feel as though I am still recovering from San La Muerte fest that went down the last weekend of August in San Antonio, Tx. We came back home to record breaking heat and mounds of work from our day jobs as well as plenty of label work to catch up on. Anyway, it’s good to be back home and I’m glad we were able to take the time off to go to Texas. My only complaint really is that I gained like 10lbs back from what I lost before I left for the trip.
