Witch house had significant influence on '10s internet art with it's special characters. The genre was first ever internet genre, was it? Everything started from this music.

Salem was good, ultimately.
i just listened to their gucci mane remixes and i do like em still. i suppose they're a bit of a one trick pony tho maybe. i'd never e ven heard of them til conor thomas played one of theirs in a dj set.

this one


it's in that weird film, that'slike america meets bollywood, 'the place beyond the pines' where they do the oxy.

i do like that crossover of midwesterny, white trashy american culture into hip hop, i think it works, the harmony korine aesthetic.

it's maybe ultimately a bit empty in terms of ideas, but it seems to be this peculiar lived reality that creates the right sounds sometimes.

wierdly, the woman from uncut gems, julia fox, has done a couple of sex/s&m zines with one of the salem lads, its all photos from her time in their house in the deep south.


there's this arthur jafa interview where he talks about this area as being the summary of america, the core. i think he's right. but there's also the competing california vision. but you look at these photos, eggleston and korine come to my mind. must be so weird there, would like to go.

Mild enthusiam for Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland for over a decade now. :D
did you never get fully sold john? i feel like dean blunt is something you either get and think is amazing unbelievable or think is a total joke so it's interesting that there's a middle ground

I think he’s great but the music isn’t always all that I guess? Definitely worth keeping an eye on but not something I’d listen to all the time.
