Deptford Goth

Deptford Goth - Life After Defo

August 16, 2012


Emanating from some point between Vienna and London, fifteen seconds of stuttering electronic percussion introduce Oscillate by SOHN, when it proceeds to do exactly that: undulating seductively with slow-mo, r&b flavored arpeggios, bubbly percussion and Grand Canyon-deep pads that sway as one in calm, natural rhythm, a distantly lamenting melody delivered by a stirring, ghostly voice.

SOHN - Oscillate

Fishing For Crabs

Fishing For Crabs is the work of 19 year old, Doncaster-based Lewis Murray, who’s glacial, hideaway bedroom transmission of the slightly Ashes To Ashes-esque Feels Right we featured here the other day. His songs under Fishing For Crabs are more direct and take focus on skipping acoustic guitars, watery pianos and silky harmonies with certain Alt-J reminiscent intonations, while retaining the certain sense of gentle wonder and pale melancholy of that aforementioned track.

Devoted Friend

Hide And Seek by Manchester’s Devoted Friend shuffles along pleasantly with wall-to-wall carpeted chords until coming to a halt, only to unexpectedly reactivate into a coda suffusing the passion of the Goo Goo Dolls soundtracking a million teenage girls shattered romantic dreams and the disorderly incense of a small rooms walls narrowing to the point of bone break. And you think that description sounds a bit rich and over the top? Well well, just you wait and see what is lined up for the next installment of Don’t Die Wondering ®.
