Dragged to Hell 44 – a killsaly mix

Dragged to Hell 44 is a mix of mostly electronic music.  Some of it is hip hop; some dark electronic; some pop; but all have some kind of electronic element to the music.  Most tracks are fairly some; some are a little older.  Enjoy!

Dragged to Hell 21: Everybody Dance, Now

Dragged to Hell Volume 21 is a special, dance party ready mix. I have selected tunes from the last few months (not all songs are that new, some are just that new to me) that fall in the hip hop, dance, electronic, industrial, and whatever I felt fit the mix.

Beyond Inversion: A Benefit for Rachael’s Women Center in DC (Compilation Release)

Beyond Inversion was released by label Accidental Guest Records (a local to my area, label ran by Sean Grey, who also partly runs Fan Death Records, another favorite label of mine) late last year, and features 23 tracks from across the spectrum of punk and post-punk music.  There is seriously too much goodness on this compilation (I can’t imagine me liking any other comp as much, for at least the next year) to go through it all.  First off, it is a benefit release.  Bandcamp lists this for info on the benefit:

all proceeds will benefit Rachael’s Women’s Center in DC, a nonprofit agency which provides resources and opportunities for homeless and formerly homeless women. A silkscreened poster accompanying this release will also be available for purchase, with proceeds also going to Rachael’s Women’s Center.

About Rachael’s Women’s Center:

To provide homeless and formerly homeless women with opportunities to develop their independence, sense of self and hope by:

Providing safety, shelter, food, showers and laundry in a nurturing, homelike environment;

Helping women to reach their potential through intensive case management and programs that empower them to take control of their lives and advocate for themselves.

Rachael’s also reaches out to individuals living on the streets, enabling and encouraging them to access services and benefits available to people who are homeless.

Rachael’s Women’s Center is a place of hospitality and hope for women who are homeless. When given the chance to heal in a caring and challenging environment, women can be enabled and empowered to bring forth their forgotten and lost potential. The Center asserts the right of all women to be treated with respect and dignity. We believe that in a non-judgemental and supportive environment that all women can find meaning, self-respect, hope, personal power, and love regardless of race or life experiences. In this environment we maintain that all women can evolve into more independent, self-reliant individuals who can more effectively contribute to the communities in which they live.

Next up, the music.  Here are some of my highlights from the record.  Perfect Pussy offer up another slice of noise punk goodness (much needed after such a short EP).  Bret Lanahan (drummer of Roomrunner) proves he is equally as bad ass on both sides of the drum kit, with an excellent solo blast.  Hive Bent lends Tomgirl, a personal favorite of mine from their last release.  Clean Girls also gave a track I already had, but a good one.  Roomrunner have a demo of the mythical ESPN Zone.  Scott Russell’s A Guide to Rational Living track Careful kills it.  Technicolor Teeth makes shoegaze but not really.  Stillsuit, love the name (huge Dune nerd), and this song is bananas; free-jazz noise freakout punk?  Jail Solidarity brings the heaviness.  Sadie Dupuis (of Speedy Ortiz fame) shows that she can rock it 90s style solo or with her band.  Ok, enough ruminations on these tracks.  My descriptions definitely don’t do these songs justice.  GO LISTEN/SUPPORT THIS ALREADY!
