FADER: Chelsea Wolfe Live at Grand Street Bakery “Boyfriend”
The Fader: Stream Chelsea Wolfe’s “Flatlands (Lust For Youth Remix)”
When it came out last year, “Flatlands” saw the notoriously macabre Chelsea Wolfe literally bowing down before the altar of less is more, lyrically expressing her desire for the simpler things in life (a stretch of landscape, the feeling of being held tight by another person) against a barren backdrop of acoustic guitar and swollen strings. It was one of the most affecting songs from the LA songwriters’ Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs, and it spoke to her ability to be really creepy with little more than her voice and her words. With his palette of wonky synths and terse rhythmics, Lust For Youth blunts a good deal of that lyrical impact, but Wolfe’s melody reveals itself to be surprisingly dance-floor appropriate. Grab a copy of Unknown Rooms via Sargent House, and check out Lust For Youth’s recent Growing Seeds LP on Sacred Bones.
FADER’S: What We’re Reading by Chelsea Wolfe
Tired of reading the same recommended books from the usual sources? Just think of our weekly What We’re Reading column as your non-committal book club with The FADER and some of your favorite bands. For this installment, Chelsea Wolfe talks about some of her recent faves.
Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence: This book has haunted me since I finished reading it. It takes me a long time to get through his books sometimes, but I’m always sad to see them end. D.H. Lawrence brings complexity and color to stories of simple coal-mining families and their surroundings. This excerpt from Sons and Lovers has inspired a few songs:
His blood beat up.
“It makes me think of the wild men of the woods, how terrified they would be when they got breast to breast with the open space.”
“Do you think they were?” she asked.
“I wonder which was more frightened among old tribes–those bursting out of their darkness of woods upon all the space of light, or those from the open tiptoeing into the forests.”
The evening was deepening over the earth. Already the valley was full of shadow. One tiny square of light stood opposite at Crossleigh Bank Farm. Brightness was swimming on the tops of the hills. Miriam came up slowly, her face in her big, loose bunch of flowers, walking ankle-deep through the scattered froth of the cowslips. Beyond her the trees were coming into shape, all shadow.
FADER: Death Grips “Guillotine It Goes Yah”
When you get an email that says INTENSE AVANT HIP HOP in the header you don’t think, you click on it and cross your fingers in hopes that it lives up to the claim. Sacramento crew Death Grips definitely does just that, for better or worse. “Guillotine It Goes Yah” and the accompanying Ex-Military mixtape proves that things really do go in cycles. The way that Bobby Brown was once amping like Michael, these dudes are amping like… um… maybe Dalek? Techno Animal? Anti-Pop Consortium? Atari Teenage Riot? (Google ‘em, kids… or don’t.) They’re definitely amping though, and with a very mid-to-late ’90s disposition. It harkens back to those golden days when we still thought the future of music would bring nothing but gltichy apocalyptic war cries, back before weed strains got better, everyone artsy signed up for Tumblr and subsequently fell into a collective nostalgic haze. The world may not exactly need a rap record at this pitch right now, but it’s refreshing to know that someone made it anyway. Angry and tormented rapping always wins.
