Siglo XX
[BOX]

Belgian band Siglo XX took their name from a Bolivian mine which was a site of social disorder. Their home city of Genk in 1978 was rife with unemployment and all the problems that can arise from that, so the band felt the name said something about where they had come from.

Ssleeping Desiress
Ssleeping Desiress

Here’s the self-titled debut LP of Ssleeping Desiress, aka San Francisco coldwave artist and snake Gabriel Ramos. The album follows a 7” released in 2012, so this has been some time coming.

Snowy Red
The Ultimate Edition

Well I was hoping for a Wikipedia entry on this most celebrated of underground Belgian synth-wave artists but there isn't one.

Walks
