INHALT utilize vintage and modern technologies to hone their sound--sometimes referential to the raw electronics of Kraftwerk or the drive of Moroder disco--but ultimately their own interpretation of the border between the past and the present. What started with the split 12" for Andy Blakes' World Unknown imprint now continues with the "Vehicle" EP for Dark Entries Records, where the brutality of the analogue transistor rhythm section meets the sincerity of the human voice.

Breathtaking darkwave synthpunk from Canada. These are KONTRAVOID. And you should be very fucking scared indeed.

BOAN is the new dark/minima/synth/wave project featuring Mariana Saldana (//TENSE//, MM) and Jose Cota (SSLEEPERHOLD, MEDIO MUTANTE) with audio production by Michael Stein (SURVIVE). This will be the band's first live appearance in Lost Angeles.

Kontravoid
The name Kontravoid belongs on a limited run cassette circa 1980-something, the type of tape buried in lost upstate dustbins of pre-MIDI analog electronics, wedged between Cabaret Voltaire and Das Ding. The dark industrial and new wave influences are strong on ex-Crystal Castles drummer Cam Findlay's new project—his voice is scary, like an echoing underwater growl—but the underlying pop melodies always afford a degree of breathing room. The artist Felix Kalmenson has already produced two great Kontravoid music videos: "Native State," the album's most instantly rewarding song (owing to interestingly doubled male-female vocals) and its most aggressive, "Killed in Action." Kontravoid is on sale now from Bandcamp and iTunes, courtesy of Tarantula X.
