For months, I've been tripping out to the dubby, samply, dark ambient music of Demdike Stare
, a collaboration between the UK's Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty. Whittaker is a producer affiliated with Modern Love records while Canty is essentially a professional crate digger, seeking out weird horror soundtracks, Kollywood rarities, avant-garde curiosities, and other obscure vinyl for reissue by Finders Keepers records. Demdike Stare, the pair's own musical collaboration, was named for one of England's most notorious Pendle Witches of the 17th century. They released three EPs on Modern Love
in 2010 that in vinyl form are already collector's items. Fortunately, all three releases plus additional material have been combined into the lavishly-packaged Tryptych
CD. Also available (if you can find a copy) is Bookmat
's limited edition 3 LP reissue of the vinyl albums. It's a gorgeous set and I hope to nab one sometime soon. Clearly, I'm really enchanted by Demdike Stare. That's why I was thrilled to see that they created an online mix for XLR8R's podcast series. The tracklist reveals the deep eclecticism of their own musical taste.
