New Radio Hosting on Radionomy
With the new year and the sad news of the demise of Live365 it is time to move on. We are migrating our radio shows to be hosted with Radionomy now. You can find more information and the links on our Radio page. Also, download and install the Radionomy app available on Google PLay and iTunes. Search for Gothic Paradise or Gothic Paradise Ethereal and add them to your favorites. In this day of machine-fed music, where a computer algorithm takes your likes and serves up recommendations, we lose so much that human interaction and judgement takes into account. Put away the apps run by machines and tune in and listen to playlists produced by a real human DJ!

Best of 2015
As we move into the new year, it's time to look back on where we've been over the previous year. We've had our ups and downs over the year and while we ended the year on a sad note with the demise Live365 by the end of January, we're still finding our way and trying to go strong. The music released over the last year has been great. While it's been hard to sift through the hundreds of releases to find our favorites and those we feel are worth featuring here and featuring on the Gothic Paradise radiowaves, it's great to have such great music to choose from. So check out what we've put together covering best albums, best newcomer and of course our best of club and ethereal radio shows.

Lights That Change
We have a new favorite band among the dream-pop and ethereal wave genres here. While we haven't received what would be considered a full-length album from this band. However, over the course of the past couple of years we've been treated with a new of short EP's and singles which have all added up to a nice collection of some stellar tracks. With the release of their last three singles, including "Voices" which started it all several months ago, since then we've picked up everything they've released and are happy to feature them here with a review of these selections. It's a pleasure to feature them here on Gothic Paradise where we've been including tracks on both radio shows, videos on our Youtube playlist and now with this review. Readers will not be disappointed with this band, so check them out, listen to what they have to offer and go buy their discography on bandcamp.
