VIDEO: Chelsea Wolfe in a Crooked World
In 2010, Chelsea Wolfe recorded her first official album, The Grime and the Glow, with an old Tascam 8-track recorder by herself and with various friends in Northern California. The result, a combination of stripped-down instrumentation, layers of vocals, haunting melodies, and tape hiss, is an AM radio broadcast from the end of the world. In her second record, Apokalypsis, released in 2011, she expands her sound more decisively towards a rock idiom, backed by a full band in a suite of songs that evoke desolate landscapes, choppy seas, and widescreen horror films played in slow motion.
