cherub420 Imagine standing in line outside of a concrete building waiting to get into this industrial-goth rave. The longer you wait, the louder and more wicked it gets...and then you realize this entire line outside IS the fucking rave. There is no entrance; only the insatiable longing to enter. Favorite track: Adore.

dienmi This one is even better than the first AM demo "Emulator". Haunting hallways, dark drone-like basses, strict unforgiving drums. Among other tags it's labeled with "EBM" but it's far more advanced than your everyday cliché EBM. It breaths the spirit of industrial pioneers like Throbbing Gristle, early Cabaret Voltair or Borsig Werke. Without sounding antique at all. And being more focused. More on point. A bit "british" perhaps, but it's made in Oakland, so that can't be :)
Favorite: 7. Adore.

A New Start 04:03
We don’t want it Normal life You can’t make me Normalize Sound the alarm Maybe I like being on the ground Crawling for air makes me stronger Why would I go back? Maybe I like to revel Maybe I don’t want to heal I like what I’ve become I have no reason to go back You can’t tame me
2.
Eden 03:15
Sometimes it feels like a dream A broken paradise It speaks to me Screaming Run on back I see empty bottles Bloated bodies Ash and blood Where’s your head at? Fire and ash Shards of glass Where’s your head at? Piles of trash Who lights the match? Who fires the gun? Where’s your head at? Sometimes it feels like a dream A broken paradise Screaming out in pain Where’s your head at? A lucid dream How do I wake up? How do I wake up?
3.
Empathy 03:25
Beneath the street light A dark space guides me It’s in you And me You’re never alone A familiar face A familiar face A familiar place On the subway train Going nowhere A familiar face A blackened space Where do you go? A familiar face A blackened shape Where do you go? Going nowhere Where do you go?

Where do you go? What do you pray for? I know I know What do you pray for What do you yearn for Shadow in the street Whispers Stay up with me Please What do you pray for? Light Love Light What do you pray for? Light Love Light What do you pray for? Can’t keep up Can’t keep up Can’t keep up

Stranger 03:55
It’s not healthy You don’t know me, stranger Stranger It’s not healthy Don’t you want To be like me? Ha Why don’t you go Bang your head Against the wall Now do you understand, stranger? You think you’ve got me Against the wall You think you’ve got me On my knees I think you’re a joke I don’t envy you You think I’m worthless You think I’m lonely You think I want to be on the ground? I dream of places Far away from you
6.
Immolate 03:18
In the mirror Staring back at Disassociate Break the glass When you remember Do you emulate That which breaks? Staring at the wall Want to end it all Sick parade Endless gaze Wonder if it’ll last Break me Just like glass Dark spaces speak to me Waiting What do you do When your universe comes caving in? Where do you run?
7.
Adore 03:20
I don’t give a fuck About your feelings Give me venom Make me ugly I’ll spit blood I’ll get loud Knock you in the mud Make mother proud Am I pretty When I’m angry I can’t stand it Rather you hate me I don’t give a fuck About your feelings Give me venom Make me ugly I’ll spit blood I’ll get loud Knock you in the mud Make mother proud I’m not here for You to adore Give me venom Make me ugly I would rather That you hate me I’d rather Be hated
8.
Healing 04:06
Is this what you wanted? Is this what you want? It’s hard to do what’s right It’s better this way It’s what you wanted You say goodbye You want to stay Breakdown Breakdown Your pride Breakdown On me You say goodbye Breakdown

Tune out Lost in Your shadow You’re gone

about

Inspired by trauma, ecstasy, and Oakland’s decaying industrial landscapes, Amusement Machine creates haunting, vocal-led club tracks to reflect on—and heal from—an unforgiving world. Polyphonic synths, throbbing bass lines, and MS-20 filters in overdrive are her salve in her premier LP, Manipulations.

Body is humbled to welcome Amusement Machine who had a very unique start with her self-released 'Emulator" EP which caught the label's attention by this obscure coldwave vibes. For this album she developed a techno mist that subtly pounds with spectral drones, percs, and vocals into a pitch dark space and at the same time, into a heavy emotional confinement.
