Variegated Heart is a live-sessions of performances conducted by the band THIN HYMNS. This is the first part of three, so you’ll get more where that came from. They’re a psychedelic pop-induced phenomenon based in Chicago, that blend genres from afar and wide. Currently in the process of releasing their coming album, “Black Waters“, they also performed live in their home-studio at Hotel Earth in Chicago, Illinois. Their EP will be released by Sanzimat International, on the 9th of April. You’ll hear more of them in the next couple of days, but take your time and listen to the wonders that be. Pop can be so much more then the static and linear approach, this is something in between ambient, psychedelia, folk, neo-classical and underproduced but carefully oriented pop-twists with a melodic body. As you’ll find out, so watch their live-show here on Invisible Guy as you go about your day. Do also listen to their one track “All Around You” available at bandcamp.
I think it’s time to give you another treat, this time I’ll be recommending my favorite Gothic rock bands from the 80s. I begin with 1980-1981 (Part I) and then gradually move my way up throughout the years: 1982 (Part II), 1983-1984 (Part III), 1985 (Part IV), 1986-1987 (Part V) and 1988-1989 (Part VI). I’ll be continuing the fad of six different episodes and I’ll bid you my welcome into the world I knew and the world I’ve discovered and continually re-discover when I’m surfing the web. I want to give people another opportunity and to find out about bands and artists that they haven’t heard of before. Sometimes I occasionally sneak in a bigger band or two, but that’ll just be if the song is good enough. But by no means is this a top 30 of the best Gothic rock from the 80s, I’ll have to give you a top-10 list in the future of the Gothic bands that I think top my own list. I’ll also have some commentary beneath each clip as I had in the earlier parts that covered post-punk, mostly because it looks more aesthetically pleasuring and say something about the song or the lyrics. Let me take you into this world now.
You’re now entering Part IV of the recommendation.
