M‡яc▲ll▲ - Earthshine + Impervious
Witch House, Electro There are very few specimens throughout the witch house scene that I find irresistible in more than one way. To name a couple, V▲LH▲LL and ∆aimon are two bands that I always flock to whenever I decide to get into a devilishly witchy mood. Mixing in with those two well known blood curdling juggernauts is also M‡яc▲ll▲, whose recent two track EP "Earthshine + Impervious" caught my attention and has me a bit addicted to their beats. 

Unlike a lot of witch house projects that utilize constant dragging beats under some sort of lo-fi sound distortion which makes it sound like their music is less than what an amateur can do, M‡яc▲ll▲ has managed to produce two electrifying tracks that illuminate both the producer's current and future career. 

While not necessarily conforming to witch house tropes (which is always a good thing to move forward and experiment), "Earthshine + Impervious" is a varying electronic exercise that just so happened to work in M‡яc▲ll▲'s favor. 'Earthshine' is a very charming and dazzling electro tune that flirts with spiritual elements. It's perfect for dances in the eve with other occult purveyors, and I would have it no other way. 'Impervious' is ever so slightly louder than the previous track, allowing the bass to increase a tad bit. The piano work that plays gently in the background is absolutely blissful, and the bolstering atmosphere of the song is enough to run chills down your spine. Both of these tracks are some of M‡яc▲ll▲'s best work that I've listened to, and this producer needs to keep moving in this direction. 

"Earthshine + Impervious" may have come out towards the end of the year, but it is not something you'll want to miss out. For a mere two dollars, you'll be getting eleven bucks worth of music that is to die for. And, now that I'm done writing this out, I'm going to go listen to those tracks again. Have a good day.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
