Shaye Saint John

Absurd to the point of creepy, this is music from the uncanny valley. Horrid visuals are achieved through total lofi effects, and the obsessive repetition found in the songs make so little sense it feels like my head is

And also be sure to watch the short movie featuring Shaye St John, Wire Therapy.

Famed early electronics with an hellish sneer. The music swirls between eerie ambience, ritualistic beats and drama that wants to charm the serpent-devil itself. Total 70s b-movie chic.

Ruth White

Creepy electronics soundtrack poems from Charles Baudelaire's "Les Fleurs de Mal". The voice limps through reverb and distortion as the music grows and dissipates. Some songs are scary in their sparseness, others bewitching, whilst some (e.g. "Spleen") are simply haunted with evil.

Inside the belly of a demon, trapped and incapable of bursting through. It comprises distorted organs and monsterous vocal samples. A massively deep sound is completely understated by its swamp-like production. Not for audiophiles or easy listening.
