If you've been tracking gloomy music from witch house sounds to doomy black metal stuff, you might have heard the name Chelsea Wolfe
, who contributed to a hazy Halloween-all-year sounding 2-Pac/Notorious B.I.G. mixtape thing
and covered Black Spell of Destruction
, which was originally by Burzum
. There was also her cover of The Modern Age
, from the tribute compilation to The Strokes Is This It
). Then there are her two past albums
: first The Grime And The Glow
, which employed lo-fi 8-track tape hiss to add a haunted ambiance, then Apokalypsis
, "moody drone-folk" likened to the sounds of PJ Harvey and Scout Niblett. If that catches your interest, great. But may I suggest skip ahead to the current album, Pain is Beauty
, "emotionally exhausting in equally mad and enjoyable ways
," in which the "permanent Halloween costume" of prior albums is cast aside, and "we get a better sense of her talent and spirit."

Who Killed Tupac Shakur?
More importantly, does the L.A. Times
run the risk of re-igniting an east-coast/west-coast rap "war" by implicating a certain notorious
indivdual in a feud that was virtually nonexistent until the media hyped it up the first time around?

LA Cop shot Notorious B.I.G.?!
While I hope justice will be served, I can only pray that this does not come to be the case. LA is already spooked about the police force. This could start another riot.
Just another day in Southern California. Sigh.
