At soldout, we wear our Witch House/Kill-Juke/Fuckcore/whatever you choose to call it badge on our sleeves with pride (we are, after all, in possession of the only video interview with the syrup-goth ground-layers Salem). We're not the experts, and we haven't been around the longest, but we'll be damned if we think we don't have the most wide-eyed interest, possibly like the kids wandering into the woods to gladly be decapitated by the scythe-wielding slow-tongued ghostdemon (which in our dreams looks remarkable like Jack Donoghue). So when Robin Carolan, from the blog that, as far as we're concerned, started it the gothcrunk scene, 20JazzFunkGreats, announced a parternship with seminal (and quite dark and moody themselves) tech label Kompakt that's resulted in the formation of Tri Angle records, we immediately jumped on the opportunity to throw some questions his way, in hopes of finally shedding some (pun intended) light on one of the most interesting scenes in music right now.
After the cut, we dig deep into the darkness. Keep your head above the ephemera, kid.
