It’s not often that the word “goth” makes us think of positive times, but that’s what happened with Deptford Goth’s remix of Blood Diamonds’ “Grins” which begins with a solemn, muffled…xylophone? It might not be a xylophone. For the sake of this post, it’s a xylophone. That instrument is never not happy, so when it shows up here, it feels like kind of a shock. Don’t worry though, the song takes a dark turn pretty quickly, but it doesn’t feel emptily dark. Instead it’s a more organic, homemade darkness. Positive times! Kind of! Blood Diamonds has a 7-inch coming out on Transparent very soon.
