Happy Hallowe’en, faithful readers! I’ve got a treat for you … something I’ve saved up just for today. As a rule, I’m not into Goth music: it’s too self-aware. I try to steer away from music that screams in your face, “I’m Just So [insert genre here]!” (uh .. unless it’s alt-country, in which case I start slavering). But the other week I made a foray into the world of Goth music and came out unscathed, clutching some Hannah Fury triumphantly.
Ms. Fury writes and produces her own music. She has a lovely voice and backs herself up with the piano (I’ve read comparisons to Tori Amos but she doesn’t sound much like Tori to me). On “Scars,” she sounds more like Joni Mitchell … reminiscent, wistful. But if you want your real Hallowe’en party music, check out “The Necklace of Marie Antoinette” or “Carnival Justice,” on which she swaggers up to you in black leather boots outside the haunted house and cracks her whip in your face. It’s good stuff, and much of it is available for free download (even better!).
