Tempe, AZ band Lycia's underappreciated '90s gem Cold has been resurrected by Handmade Birds. For the unaware, the record is an icy, unforgiving and ultimately brilliant, sprawling darkwave touchstone, and is highly reccommended for fans of the genre.
In addition to Cold, Lycia is also on the move with new material too, releasing a new set of tunes called Quiet Moments, also via Handmade Birds. Don't let the smooth-jazz-sounding title fool you, the new effort is a similarly inspired piece of icy darkness, and includes the new track "Greenland" available for stream below. Order copies of both the new LP and Cold at Handmade Birds.

Night Sins joined Hot Guts for last night's show at K&M as part of the darkwave party Rituals (11/29). The trio (guitar, bass, vocals) didn't start their set till well past mindnight and leaned in the Joy Division direction of post punk.
As discussed, members of Night Sins serve time in Salvation, who will play NYC on January 13 at Saint Vitus with Raspberry Bulbs and Pharmakon. Tickets are still available.
A few more pictures from last night's K&M show are below, along with a music video.

Belgrado @ Acheron, 11/23/2012
Spanish darkwave crew Belgrado played a rare show in NYC last Friday at Acheron (11/23) with Unholy Thoughts, Anasazi and Devil's Hand, part of a close to a larger US tour (Perdition reportedly didn't play).
Pictures of Anasazi and Belgrado from that show are below, along with video of Belgrado's set, as well as streams of Belgrado's latest 7" and 2011 long-player.

Though the band passed through these parts a few weeks ago with the similarly great Nothing (who have a new LP and play A389), Philadelphia darkwavers Night Sins (mems Salvation/Mother of Mercy who also have a new LP) will play the Rituals party at K&M tonight (11/29 at 225 N.8 St) alongside an appearance from fellow Philly band Hot Guts. The party is FREE.
Speaking of Nothing, the band recently released a video for "Downward Years To Come" and you can check that out below.
