Welcome to another edition of my weekly goth/industrial music feature,
SeeDarkly Sunday DisCOVERies!

If you missed the introductory explanation of what this even is, click here to get up to speed. :)

Speaking of speed, let's pick up the tempo a bit this week:

Black Boots - This Shit Will Fuck You Up
This electronic duo based in Nevada would tell you "fuck genres" but their overall style has them deeply entrenched in the "future bass / trap" sector. At least until last Halloween when, inspired by their early days in the underground electronic scene of Las Vegas, they released their cover of This Shit Will Fuck You Up by Combichrist. The original track is one of the well known club favorites from the band's second full-length studio album, Everybody Hates You, released in 2005.
While this cover subtly strips away some of the aggression of the original, it maintains an up-beat dancable tempo and adds some instrumental language vaguely reminiscent of Gesaffelstein.

My thanks to my friend, Hazyrd, who turned me on to this track a few weeks ago when I told him I was starting this feature. Excellent find!

The Original:

Next week: I address the issue of a particular band who has so many covers of their music I could feature them exclusively every week for possibly a lifetime... (but won't.)

Comments, suggestions, discussions, etc... welcome!

I'll be spinning in Northampton AND Boston this week, where I am very likely to play today's featured cover! Check my schedule for details on those events and other future events as well.
