The Genius of Cole Porter

Click here to visit and download some new music from a weird, wild band called Lansing-Dreiden.I suggest "Laid in Stone."

Etonic gushes:

Lansing-Dreiden's music bursts on you like some metal-sheathed animal, a terrific onslaught of machine angles and raw instinct. Depending on their mood, they might evoke other bands for you -- nobody contemporary, only the masters -- their fierce, enegetic nihilism recalls The Damned as they transitioned from punk to goth; their dark, moody dissonance suggests early Bauhaus; and their soulful, thoughtful use of electronics reminds us of the genius of New Order.

You can make up your own mind about all that.
