Right now I am all over Carpenter Brut, a French electronic artist specialising in 80’s retro synth sounds. As the word “Carpenter” suggests, he derives a lot of his themes and inspirations from horror movies, namely the works of you-know-who, as well as prominent others such as Dario Argento & H.P. Lovecraft.
I find this shit a strong 12 on the “Tight as Fvck” Richter scale of awesomeness. Hope he plays a gig in my neck of the woods someday. At the moment he’s touring his 3rd offering across the US & Europe, so check him out if it’s your bag.
Who’s the last ball-rapingly awesome band/artist that you’ve discovered?
