Top music picks for December

Long, long ago when I posted a handful of music videos for the Goth Challenge, a lot of you were quite enthusiastic and said it was a good way of discovering new bands. :-) I do try to be helpful whenever I can, so here's a taster of a few bands from assorted 'dark' genres that I'm loving at the moment.

Girl Anachronism by The Dresden Dolls. I delight in knowing all the words to this and singing along whenever possible.

Don't Mess With the S.S. by Raggedy Angry. Been a fan of these guys since I saw them supporting The Birthday Massacre.

Beloved Enemy by Jesus on Exstasy. I first heard this band on a free compilation CD with a magazine, which honestly is how I've discovered a large portion of the bands I'd die to see live.

Desire or Disease by Plastique Noir. I think everyone has a song that gives them the chills every time they hear it. Well, this is mine. Couldn't possibly love this any more.

Papillon by Editors. I don't know what it is that makes this song so great but I just adore it.

"Papillon" is epic!

Thanks Amy! After you so graciously got me interested in Deva Destruction, you've managed to introduce me to more enjoyable bands. I especially liked Jesus On Extasy, and the Editor's "Papillon."

Since the latter is apparently, not supposed to be available in the U.S., I had to go to the YouTube site in order to watch the video. While there, I watched a segment from one of their live performances. I was a bit surprised to see that the crowd looked very mainstream and not Goth at all.
