Anna Von Hausswolff - Dead Magic cd

The new cd of Anna Von Hausswolff is her best yet, solidifying the "drone rock"/"funeral pop" style she expounded on Ceremony and The Miraculous. Fortunately she has toned down on the ethereal aspects of her work and adopted a rawer and heavier style, possibly the outcome of her association and touring with Swans. Her vocals have also become absolutely amazing, as shown in the t-e-r-r-i-f-i-c second track "The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra," which is an early contender for best song of the year. Congratulations. 2018 cd on City Slang.

  1. Thank you so very much for the Anna von Hausswolff shares!! You have made my day/week/possibly year ;) I literally just discovered her music a couple hours ago - how it took me so long I don't know. I love organ music (modern and early musics) so when I started playing Dead Magic on BC it was bliss to these ears. Ethereal stuff, von Hausswolff could easily be a 4AD artist, which is always a good thing.
