Music of the Week – Of The Wand & The Moon – Immer Vorwärts

Time to go back to the neo folk territory again, my fellow readers. :) This is one of the best songs from the last album (The lone descent, 2011) of one of the most important bands in the whole genre: Kim Larsen’s Of The Wand & The Moon. Larsen (NOT to be confused with his […]

Music of the Week – Slapshot – Punk’s Dead, You’re Next

Hello, fellow readers. This week, I’m proposing to you some very good old classic Boston straight-edge hardcore. What is the best way to combat the scorching heat than blasting it away with some good, heavy music, after all? :) Let the music do the talking…enjoy!

Music of the Week – Nature And Organisation – A Dozen Winters Of Loneliness

“A dozen winters of loneliness…and a dozen summers against the world” launglidly speaks, in a trance-like state, David Tibet in this beautiful song penned by Michael Cashmore, the leader of the Nature and Organisation project, an interesting post-industrial / neo folk ensemble that penned a couple of EPs, an LP and an unfinished work in […]

Music of the Week – Ruth White – Chopin – Prelude in E Minor

Hello fellow readers! For this week, I’m proposing you a track from the very talented electronic music pioneer Ruth White. She had quite an extensive career, her most famous record is maybe “Flowers of Evil” (1968) in which she puts into music some of the most striking Baudelaire’s poems. For an extensive look on Ruth’s […]

Music of the Week – Massive Ego – Beautiful Suicide

Here is something that I haven’t done frequently in those years of writing on Illusion City: to propose a brand new song from a brand new album for which the band is currently touring :)   Massive Ego is a very interesting Wave / Goth / Electro act from UK. According to their bio, they […]

Music of the Week – Kory Clarke – Opium Hotel

Hello, my dear readers. For this time, I want to propose you a little oddity that I found some time ago. It’s the tile track off the first album of Mr Kory Clarke, the leader of the late ’80s/early 90s band Warrior Soul (one of the best and less understood of their times), recorded in […]

Happy new year, my fellow readers! May be this 2017 a less troublesome year for us all. Many things have shaken the world during the past year, and we’re living a time marked by great doubts, partial visions and global paranoia. However, life goes on and still offers a lot of positive possibilities to all […]

Music of the Week – Zakk Wylde – Lost Prayer

2016 hasn’t been a very easy year, but fortunately there have been some nice surprises too. One of them is the return of the acoustic/introspective version of Zakk Wylde (of Ozzy Osbourne’s and Black Label Society fame) with a direct sequel of Zakk’s first solo album, Book of Shadows, released twenty years ago. I didn’t […]

Music of the Week – Maria João Pires – Chopin – Nocturne No. 13 in C minor Op. 48 No. 1

Time for some music of a very different kind from the composition that I usually post here…for the first time since the inception of illusion city, I’ll share some classical music to you, which I listen fondly but rarely share or talk about. This is one of my favorite composition from Chopin’s Nocturnes played by […]
