21. Something for the Weekend: Dandi Wind “Umbilical Noose”

Dandi Wind "Bait the Traps EP" (2005)

Before taking time out with her side-project Fan Death, Canadian artist Dandilion Wind Opaine was working with boyfriend Szam Findlay in their apocalyptic electro-punk band, Dandi Wind.

With noises echoing the likes of Peaches, Sexy Sushi and Bjork (whenever she is somewhat accessible), the duo carved out a sonic boom that manages to be tame and beautiful, while at the same time punching you in the stomach very hard.

From their 2005 EP, Bait the Traps, Findlay’s background sounds propel “Umbilical Noose” through a post-industrial landscape, while Opaine affronts the noise, tempting to tear it all apart – or some bullshit like that.

It’s just good.
