Gods of the World! Their mouths are dumb!
Your guns have spoken and they are dust
But the shrouded Living, whose hearts were numb,
have felt the beat of a wakening drum
Within them sounding — the Dead men’s tongue —
Calling : “Smite off the ancient rust!”
Have beheld “Resurrexit,” the word of the Dead,
(Words of the dead)
(Written in red)


Open the prisons and make men free!


Happy album release day to Unwoman, whose words and music continue to awe and inspire me. This album is her most impressive work to date.

Some of the things you will find in these songs are: fallen empires, regicide, distance, attraction, and repulsion all wrestling with each other on planets near and far, all wrapped up in gorgeous layers of cello and vocals. This song is about falling in love in Chicago, and it makes me ache in the best way possible in anticipation of the loss of some things and the gaining of others.

we walk on a warm night down your block

always with arms or eyes or lips locked

we are the worst at hello and goodbye

that heavy feeling, tomorrow I fly.


For anyone who hasn’t heard her, I recommend listening to Unwoman! She has an amazing voice

why thank you!

Erevos Aether – Wake the Serpent Not

Erevos Aether’s AW 2014-15 collection, Wake the Serpent Not, contrasts sheer, romantic, fragile textures with armorlike iridescent leather and metallic elements. The architectural qualities of this tough, invulnerable aspect combine with its softer side to create a high sci-fi look that is dark and impressive.

None more goth, kierongillen?  Also paging the wicdivstyleblog

You would be correct.

"Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial. What’s more, there’s an interestingly sexist assumption that often gets made about female fashion — namely, that it’s primarily intended to get male attention and male approval."

I swear I had a date that went exactly like this, average-looking-dude and all.

Unwoman, “Long Long Shadows”

Ooh, this person has figured out how to share streams of music that’s not officially released yet! Impressed. Have a listen here & click through to preorder if you’re not a lucky kickstarter backer.


Everyone needs to be a fan of Unwoman. 

go pre-order her new album and buy her old albums.

she reformed with Steam Powered Giraffe at Clockwork alchemy and the fans demanded a encore even when they were waiting so long to see SPG. She is beautiful and amazing.

awww this is sweet! I <3 SPG and their lovely fans.

A really nice album. Pay-as-you-want.

I have a track on here, a different version of which will be on my upcoming album, Circling.
