†††††††††† - witch house discussion thread

late to the party, but let's talk about the weirdest, lamest, and possibly most important scene to burgeon in the last while. it's corny as fuck for trying too hard but never has anything ever sounded so pregnant with indefatigable anguish. it's the kind of music you play at your house on halloween to scare the kiddies, and it's the kind of music that gets made when something is chopped and screwed using a cursed turntable that belonged to ian curtis. it's a fucking dirty south seance.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tx4uhYeIEQ SALEM - TAIR the devil is among us and he's fucked up on cough syrup, so turn up the fucking bass

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3OHLEYBiFE SALEM - DIRT for those who feel disconsolate but still want to move around you know

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sGSntTw_Q4 WHITE RING - ICX999 if your computer ever enkindled and started playing music either of its own free will or at the hand of some forlorn spirit from the nether, this would probably be the first and only song you would hear it play

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puLDuV3azbA&feature=related †‡† - ____ ▲____ i'm not overly fond of this one but it is important that i post it because it involves 1) a band whose name is unspeakable by mortal tongue 2) a picture of what is probably baphomet in the background and 3) a lengthy sample of usa boys by HEALTH. this is to the music world what gay marriage is to deck knight.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsOecHcVUPk TEARIST - LO-V poppier but still filled with murderous intent. if the ring was a song, this would be it.

i don't know about you, but if the future of music is genre-bending until god summons the locusts, i'm not too worried
witch house is so utterly pretentious it's not even funny

i like the names of the albums / artists though

like this one, which is actually a decent album

horse macgyver - CDR

apparently they changed the artist name to Horse MacGyver but when it first got released it was typed out as ///▲▲▲\\\ romanized as _v_o_i_d_


a lot of witch house's artists/albums are like this, they're impossible to search

if you're on what.cd look up the collage 'Unsearchable'


chaos's bitch
i honestly thought this was a troll thread about a made-up genre

after googling for a while, i'm still not fucking sure
Liked the first and fourth songs quite a bit. Never even heard of this genre before, though, can someone who has direct me to more songs I should listen to?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZjbaE4C9T8&feature=related SLEEP ∞ OVER - Outer Limits this reminds me of the fourth song for some reason

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeHtzs91Xm0 SALEM - TRAPDOOR and this is very similar to the first song in the op. I SEE UH BITCH RUHN BUT I DOUBT SHE KNOW WHY

for albums i'd recommend king knight by salem and black earth that made me by white ring. it requires a fair amount of work to find the meat in this genre but i assure you it is quite tender.


i woke up in a new bugatti
I'm with akuchi and alan here, i still dont know if this is a serious thread???
Holy shit is witch house still around?

I got into it when I heard Salem on a Paul Devro mix.

Google led me to some shit and I found Mater Suspira Vision. The Zombie Rave stuff they do I can dig but that droney dragged out shit is unbearable for me. I also hate how their releases are all limited :\

oooOoO and Tearist are probably the only stuff outside of Salem, MSR, and forward slashes triangles forward slashes I like.

Kinda weird that Witch House came to be after the whole Chillwave craze.


what are birds? we just don't know.

which house????

this house!

my friend has inadvertently named this genre "terror-step"
this is cool as hell and i don't goddamn know why, have a thing

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6MN22f29os dead virgin - dare

all night all i've done is just put on a salem playlist and the general witch house playlist that came from youtube, and damn. relaxing as hell stuff. some videos can't be played in playlists for some reason or a few minutes of silence are tacked on to the end of things, though. whatever, this stuff rules, i've only found one track i didn't like so far !
much like chillwave (which sprung up as a 'genre' around the same time witch haus did) i never tried too all that hard to get into this. a lot of my friends are into it, and i definitely see the appeal -- it's just not my cup of tea. i have a couple of songs to share though:

balam acab -- see birds (moon)
balam acab -- see birds (sun)

this little ep is about the only thing out of witch house that's ever stuck out in any sort of way for me... and, well, these songs aren't even that great in my opinion. i'm not saying i'm not a fan of anguished, brooding, 'patient' music but most of this stuff is just boring to me. but that's only my opinion, and it's relatively uneducated.

so rather than playing witch house this halloween i'll probably either turn the heat to blazing and blast early swans or turn the ac to freezing and play the la vampires/zola jesus split.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-aWEYezEMkheard this described as 'post-witch house' which kind of made me angry but then i heard that to write music she locks herself in a dark windowless room with no food and little water for up to three days sometimes

also its super catchy so
Grimes is such a qt.


Witch house is gr8
