I have recently succumbed to the allure of the smoky-contraltoed, gothy dark wail that seems to be more and more hip these days. These ladies are much better than most of their peers: Victoria Legrand (Beach House), Jana Hunter (Lower Dens) and Nika Roza Danilova (otherwise known as Zola Jesus).

There must be a connection between this and the new dark wave (and old) that’s being put out by the likes of Wierd, Dark Entries, and the like. Underground 80’s music (I think that’s we called it in those days) seems to be popular with the young-un’s these days.
