  A playlist about midnight mode walking through the city, looking back and seeing all the ghosts behind you, in perfect step. I didn’t notice they were wearing clothes of mine they nicked. They stole a little bit of my armour when we collided. But, fuck. All the fashions. All the years. They wear them […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA/VERSUS] Purity Ring – “Push Pull” (Kavi vs Saam Idelji-Tehrani Dual Review)


  Here at The Sights and Sounds we don’t always agree on music. Just like you and your friends. Yeah, sometimes we fight, sometimes it’s a whole world of Marvel vs. Capcom in our crew page forum as we go at it over music. Lovingly, of course. We feel strongly about music and we know […]

[INDIETRONICA/DARK POP] Purity Ring– Amenamy (Jon Hopkins Remix)


   Open the wormhole; feel your feet planted on terra firma, and avert your navelgazing toward the swirling tube stop to freedom in front of you. Like an astral avenue of escape, you can feel the dust land on your face that’s carried by airstreams from beyond. The portal’s open, it’s there because you were […]

[DUBSTEP] Purity Ring - Belispeak (PatrickReza Remix)

  Purity Ring has seen quite a few remixes lately, but PatrickReza‘s massive dubstep remix of “Belispeak” is probably the grimiest one I’ve heard yet. Speeding up the vocals in a slow build from the beginning, the LA producer quickly flips the switch into some nasty pulled synth and bass. The track is not without […]
