Gauntlet Hair’s second album, Stills, will be released July 16 on Dead Oceans. Recorded during Portland, Oregon’s grey winter days in producer Jacob Portrait’s (Unknown Mortal Orchestra) appropriately named studio “The Cave,” the album reveals Gauntlet Hair’s guileless affection for the goth industrialists and post-punks who blazed a shadowy path through the 80s and 90s.

After moving back to their hometown of Chicago last year, Craig and Andy looked to their teenaged selves for inspiration. “I started listening again to the stuff I would have in my discman in the back of my mom’s car,” says Nice. “White Zombie, Marilyn Manson — the production on those records is so amazing. Nothing sounds like that anymore.” Mining that nostalgia has proved effective and the result is that Stills is a garden of dark delights.

"Pictureplane is Travis Egedy, a 24-year-old electronic producer based in Denver. On his forthcoming album Dark Rift, Egedy takes various strains of dance music-- big room house most prominently-- and runs them through all sorts of scuzzy punk rock filters, bringing the music closer to experimental psych-rock. On the Best New Track 'Goth Star,' Egedy smears distorted bass all over an ethereal Fleetwood Mac sample, creating something that sounds wrong but all the better for it." --Pitchfork
