Elizabeth Willis is a child-prodigy turned soulful grown woman. Willis, now 21-years-old, began playing violin and piano when she was only 4-years-old. Clearly evidenced by her lush, meticulously structured self-produced album, Willis’ lifetime of training and discipline adds particular sheen to each song’s heartfelt delivery. Her self-titled album was released back in September, and has recieved praise from NPR, Newsweek, URB, and more.

Haven't you always wondered what an album inspired by Mars would sound like? Well, Spain's Malaventura may have the answer. They are releasing a 26 minutes journey of electronics beats and pads, analogs drums and basses, noises and crashes, quiets and louds ambients inspired by and called Mars. Listen it and drawn into your mind the lowell’s canals or chat with Helene Smith and his martians friends. Take a journey through the Cydonia region and be careful in the Laestrygon area.

This is quite possibly the most honest Christmas song ever written, and it comes from our friends at Death to Anders.

The Peel Back: Pigface Washingmachine Mouth (Invisible Records, April 1993)

I always wanted to understand industrial music, but I never quite did. I was always more into the electronic aspects of the music, and only appreciated remixes or songs with a abstract dance beat. So it would make sense that the only Pigface album I ever owned was the remix ep Washingmachine Mouth. I bought it because (at the time) I thought it would be cool to own a Pigface album, but I enjoyed every inch of that tape. From ambient chopped up spoken word to club feel of "Satan on the Inside Looking In" to post punk of "Cuting Face". It may not be their traditional sound, but it is now what I think of when I hear the name Pigface.

Flowers Are Evil/Cutting Face/Satan On The Inside Looking In (Red Around The Eye)/Satan On The Inside Looking In (The Calm Before The Storm) (mp3)/Satan On The Inside Looking In (The Return of Wet Brain 2000)/Cutting Face-Gas Mask Mix/Satellite-Needle In The Groove No Damage Done/Prepare To Die Go! Go! Go!/The Last Word

"Something Is Squeezing My Skull"? "It's Not Your Birthday Anymore"? Mr. Morrissey is as chipper as ever, I see. I can imagine him singing the latter song to a four-year-old to introduce the kid to the world's morbidly grim reality.
