Goth night returns with High Functioning Flesh LP in-hand

Posted By on Thu, Apr 24, 2014 at 9:00 AM

After releasing of cassettes by Fit of Body and Women's Work in November - two tapes that spoke to DKA's celebration of local acts as well as a broad and brooding sound - the label returns with a full-length LP by High-Functioning Flesh, the L.A.-based duo of Greg Vand and Susan Subtract. HFF hits the heart of what DKA is all about: pure, unadulterated EBM and industrial-goth that pays homage to '80s synth-underground auteurs such as Cabaret Voltaire, Ministry, and Skinny Puppy, while keeping one foot planted in a modern musical context. The album's seven tracks could easily be mistaken for a long lost Mute demo, slightly degraded over time, ready to be unearthed.

DKA celebrates the album's release while also hosting its semi-regular Goth Danse night at 529, which also serves as an after party for the Atlanta-Mess Around.

Stream High-Functioning Flesh's A Unity of Miseries below.

DKA's Goth Danse Party. Sat. Apr. 26. 10 p.m. Free. 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769.
