Chelsea Wolfe's Pain is Beauty

Just started dipping into the upcoming Chelsea Wolfe album Pain Is Beauty, and it's a good one, much, much, much better than 2011's Apokalypsis which, in my view, got the drama and atmospherics right, but did not deliver on the songs. Anyway, this one is a lot better produced and structured, not as relentlessly, screamingly intense, but more varied and melodic and all the stronger for it. She's sort of in the Zola Jesus/Austra/Julianna Barwick camp of gothy, theatrical, classically-tinged experimental female singers. Anyway, well done, have a listen.
