Dusty Kid – III [Techno-2016]

Today I got something very special for you. It’s what I believe to be the best ambient-techno album of all times. This instrumental masterpiece trips you in a dark place in your mind.

A little over two hours of fine atmospheric techno. This should be enjoyed at night. The track I’ve selected to showcase sets the tone for the rest of the album. As always here’s the bandcamp link if that’s your thing. 10/10.

HEALTH – Rat Wars [Industrial-2023]

Yes, I know House of Music is an electronic music blog. But every once in a while I’ll be presenting things I find interesting from other genres as well.

Here we got the latest from HEALTH. They are an industrial band from L.A. They have said about themselves that: “We aren’t just interested in being a noisy screaming band”.

How does it work out not being noisy in a noisy genre? Quite good actually. The vocals and melodies are mellow and sweet but the music can get a real kicker sometimes. The end result is as dark as it’s cover. Yes, in this case, please do judge it by it’s cover.

This one was released on the 7th of December, 2023. A few days ago. As always be sure to buy the album on bandcamp if that’s your thing. Otherwise stream away and enjoy. 9/10.
