    i am/was completely in the dark about Chelsea Wolfe, as in i’d never heard of her. Now i simply want to lay in the dark and listen to her music and that’s a good thing. i really really liked it.

    Actually neither of those two songs is from “Apokalypsis”; they may be new or may be from her preview album/EP that I haven’t heard yet. They’re both great, though. And they’re a lot folkier than the album, which is electric & with a band, and reminds me at various points of early PJ Harvey, Sonic Youth and the Doors. Highly recommended.

    I loved the Swans too.

    Seriously though, why did I learn to play piano instead of guitar?  Was this my first mistake in life?

    I think she’s probably been influenced a lot by Patty Griffin.  Probably more than most of the musicians that name her as a big influence. She named a lot by a lot of big acts. Maybe a few too many to be “cool’ to list now as an influence.

    Here links to a couple of Patty Griffin videos…

    This has soul.  You don’t see true feeling like this on American Idol.  At least, not the kind I can appreciate beyond the bullshit, clenched fist plastic souls I’ve witnessed there.

    This is beautiful.

    This is really great, although I’m not sure about the whole metal-ness. I was getting a lot of Katie Jane Garside’s solo work/ Ruby Throat here (the lead singer of Queen Adreena.) Tbh I’m not a fan of the pretensions of metal- you can do a long of the same stuff without having to wear black eyeliner. http://youtu.be/CwbS1El7sfY

    What a terrific voice. If only a very very sad John Renbourn were her guitarist.
