Those of us who are goth or goth-related probably all know Faderhead. He puts together stuff that is upbeat and gets everyone on the dance floor. So we all kind of think of him as a pop-goth.
But have ever you heard his own stuff? Where he sings?
He recently put out an EP (Therapy For One | Faderhead) and wow.
That is totally not what I would’ve expected. It ain’t happy dance music. It’s as dark and goth as anything gets. If you listen, you’ll likely want to reach out and ask if he needs a therapist. And there’s the title - Therapy For One.
If you like goth music, you should check it out. It is nothing at all like “TZDV” or “The Way to Fuck God” or “Dirtygrrrls/Dirtybois”. It’s really deep and dark and has a feel of honesty to it.
It’s not going to make you dance like those big hits did, but it’s definitely worth listening to. To hear someone just open up and pour their heart and soul into it.
I know I just posted a big long thing, so it’s not really appropriate for me to post another thing. But here we are. I’m doing it.
Stevie Wonder singing Higher Ground (Higher Ground - YouTube) just is so powerful. Everyone should listen to it. He’s not just singing about one thing, but about life. It’s real easy to say we’ve improved a lot of that stuff, But have we really? I kinda doubt he’d agree with that.
Answering the real questions here, what if Black Sabbath and Wham did a song together and pulled in Van Halen for the guitar solo?
Ozzie’s confused face at 1:20 says it all.
I have really been enjoying electro swing in the last few years. But this is something even more far out.
