Heilung - Futha

Heilung - Futha


Album title: Futha
Record Label: Season of Mist
Rating: 10

Heilung (German for ‘healing’) is known for their striking live performances, complete with leather, and bone outfits, and primitive often homemade instruments. They call their genre Amplified History, which brings the far ancient Northern European past into the present. The atmospheric, sometimes dark, yet delicate, undeniably intense, and primitive style of neo folk that this Danish group plays is sung (and chanted) in multiple Scandinavian languages, which gives it a primal power and
conviction deeper than experienced elsewhere. Authentic and truly unique!

Only Child Tyrant

Album title: Time to Run
Record Label: Nomark
Rating: 9

Brash and abrupt, throbbingly angular and obtrusive; found inside of indie, surf and slide, as well as doom and electronic. In what strange world could all of these exist? One that is an alias for mega producer Amon Tobin! Needing an outlet for material that didn’t fit into his other bodies of work Only Child Tyrant was born. These 8 tracks take you in mysterious ways to places you never knew you could get to. Whether bleeping or grinding this will have you wandering but finding.
