About a week ago, the PDX based dark electronic duo Force Publique pushed out some pretty high profile material, content worthy of premiering. Even though that may have been the mission to drop this a few days ago never the less the magic still remains intact. If you are familiar with these artists, then you are aware they are originally are from Denver, Colorado. Force Publiques’ June 2k15 release of Bloom, a grungy alternative witch house shoegaze album. Bloom has been received fairly garnering some publications in WestWord. For all listeners and supporters it still available for listen/purchase on their bandcamp & soundcloud pages.
Although the track is not an 100% original, the way it presents itself is completely fresh & incredibly imaginative take. Fringe Class’ sound is delivers itself as more of a neo-fem pop discoteque sort of vibe, as where Force Publique has this ethereal but sort of raspy darkwave electronic feel. The two interpretations of the song are completely unique from one another, think twins with different personalities. This could eventually lead each song to be mistaken for the other by listeners, but highly doubtful. The hook is clean enough to make out, too. Something to tide fans over these final few summer months before we slip back into the cold, wet, wild winter months. This is not the first remix by Force Publique. Nor is it the most iconic cover. If you recall the version of “TODAY” by The Smashing Pumpkins, released a little over two years ago. This group knows what they are doing, and has done some amazing reproductions over the course of a couple years.

WITCH HOUSE WEDNESDAY
This week we are featuring an unfamiliar artist, known as †RIɅLS. Some of you you may be familiar with the Cardiff, UK, others not so much, but what you should be anticipating is an omnipotent stir of venoms waiting to be poured into your ears, eyes and mouth. Sip from this witchy-brew, but don’t say I didn’t warn you…
I picked four of my favorites, Infect Me was the only track that had two remixes I thought were both truly unique from one another, and still remained within a genre specific confide of its respected influential components
LUVKER, was another one of the more interesting releases by Trails, and remixed by an additional artist. It follows through with the similar juxtaposition of erie fizzily-ness, synths skittering & pulsing, all the while being lullabied; “Im not afraid to die, again”.
There was also Stay With Me, a more minimalist spectrum, in terms of the vapid bass sounds that we find in the lo-fi distortion(ist) deathrave(y) synths, followed up by the doomed out synths in the track WASTED
