Now Hear This, Vol. II

Stream a mix Cheon brewed up for Dark Entries' fifth anniversary above.

Are you properly caring for your inner goth? My years of rockin' an all-black wardrobe, a Wite-Out complexion and panda eyes may be over, but I take care to nourish my blackety-black heart and sonic sensibility. If you're feeling the urge to chainsmoke clove cigs, brood and write bad poetry, I recommend channeling that energy into a celebration of Dark Entries Records' fifth anniversary.

Preview Dark Entries' reissue of '80s Italo disco group Helen's early maxi singles as a four-song EP.

DJ Josh Cheon founded the label in July 2009 with the intention of releasing out-of-print and unreleased underground '80s treasures. Named for the first 7-inch released by goth icon Bauhaus, Dark Entries' focus is curation, preserving sound quality and respecting its artists' aural aesthetic . And, yes, the label's output is strictly vinyl.

Sample the debut LP by Cute Heels, the solo project of Belgian artist and Black Leather Records manager Victor Lenis.

Dark Entries' lifeblood is the excavation, quality reproduction and distribution of largely unknown pleasures, but it also showcases contemporary acts whose sound harkens back to the heyday of minimal synth, coldwave, dark wave, electro, Italo disco and post-punk. Highlights of the Dark Entries catalog include work by Dark Day, Jeff and Jane Hudson, Starter, Linea Aspera, Kitchen & the Plastic Spoons, Algebra Suicide, Los Microwaves, Patrick Cowley, Victrola, Lè Travo, Crash Course in Science, Lassigue Bendthaus, Cute Heels and Helen.

Stream "Nightcrawler" from Dark Entries' 2xLP Patrick Cowley retrospective, School Daze.

"If only for the old times," reminisce and peer into the future by exposing your dark side to Dark Entries.

Group Hug

Dance in Bowie’s Pants TONIGHT

“In the ’70s, rock and roll flew an intergalactic cruise ship to the planet Glitter and mined its three moons—Pleasure, Androgyny and Polyester. Its captains were the likes of Ziggy Stardust, The Sweet, Slade, Queen, Elton John, the New York Dolls, T. Rex and the cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

—Jessica Cassyle Carr, music editor

This very eve, we seek to glam rock with you at our annual pre-Pride dance party. The New Mexico titleholders will perform, and DJs Cassyle, Tahnee and Nicolatron will spin you to the moon. Plus, there will be sparkly cupcakes from Rebel Donut, and free snaps from Photobooth Rentals of New Mexico. Silver unitards encouraged.
