Black Needle Noise releases new single “Nocturnal” ft. Helena Mamich

  Iconic producer John Fryer has teamed with the Croatian-Australian operatic soprano Helena Mamich for the latest Black Needle Noise single “Nocturnal”. The single explores new approaches to making music, merging the recognizable BNN dark electronic soundscape with an opera soprano.

Chris Connelly “Graveyard Sex” – album review

Chris Connelly “Graveyard Sex” – album review

  After last year’s rather experimental and conceptual piece of work, Sleeping Partner, this year Connelly returns with a brand new album entitled Graveyard Sex.

This album is a window into Connelly’s very intimate self; even if you don’t speak the language, you will notice that he’s never sounded more personal. The opening song, “Graveyard Sex”,…
