Special Feature
The Foreign Resort
This Danish project has been rocking for eight solid years now and have a nice collection of tours and releases under their belt to show for it. We were first introduced by their self-titled EP with tracks like "Heart Break Down" and "Orange Glow" that immediately held us captivated. Now we've picked up their debut album as well as releases since then and continue to love and be impressed by every new release. The band have two full-length albums of all new unique material, an EP, a remix album and two singles. On top of that nice discography in just a few years, they've managed to also tour all over many parts of the world including a few North American tours and playing throughout their homeland and surrounding areas of Europe.

Most of our regular readers and listeners will already be very familiar with this band as we have several station IDs and tracks that we play regularly as well as reviews of all of their albums and EP releases. For those not familiar, their music is a great mix of Post Punk, New Wave and Shoegaze with somber moods accented by intensely shimmering and driving guitars. With the release of New Frontiers and our on-going enjoyment of this band after so many years, it's a pleasure to feature them here on the pages of Gothic Paradise and hope you as listeners will enjoy their talents.

Friends of Alice Ivy
This project was formed around 2007 from the duo of Amps (instruments and programming) and Kylie (vocals), formally of the prominent ethereal shoegaze group Ostia out of Australia. Gothic Paradise listeners should be familiar with Ostia and their lilting, ethereal shoegaze style. This new project strips out much of the guitar and abstracts out many of the elements for a much more ambient ethereal style with various synthesized and organic symphonic instruments combined. Check out the reviews of their releases, but in summary, readers can imagine many of the excellent elements we love from Ostia with Kylie's beautiful, soft vocals and leave out much of any percussion and guitar and replace it with soft, dreamy soundscapes. Check out the band's home page for a more detailed history as well as updates and other information. Also tune into our Ethereal show for selections from this and other excellent artists in the related genres.

These artists have kept listeners entertained over the years with two EP's and with the release of their first full-length album we're happy to feature them here on Gothic Paradise. This latest work combines all of the great captivating elements from their career with a heavy influence from ethereal ambience and a touch of 80's new wave mixed in, while all the time Kylie's angelic vocals keep the listener entranced. Check out the reviews, the video below, explor the band's website, listen to tracks on our Ethereal radio show and pick up their catalog.
