Germanotta Youth

live @ Circolo degli Artisti

Much like how Ciccone Youth was formed in the wake of Madonna, Germanotta Youth has been formed in the wake of Lady Gaga (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta is her real name). GY features the ‘cybergrind’ trio of Massimo Pupillo (Zu), Reeks (Inferno), and Andrea Basili Kailash (Kailash). Their new album, The Harvesting of Souls, is out now on Wallace Records.

Holy Other


Last year we loved Holy Other’s “Yr Love,” but “Touch” is some next level shit. Well, it’s at least as good. You know, I kind of want to Touch my erect penis when I hear these heavy witch house stylings amid a vague James Blake vibe. You may do the same when the With U 12” EP emerges from Tri Angles swollen womb on June 6. (via Gorilla Vs Bear)
