LIVE PHOTOS/REVIEW: Unsound Festival 2014

Featuring Swans, Pharmakon, Craig Leon, Vladislav Delay, The Bug, Grouper, Rrose, Ben Frost and more

Marilyn Manson
“Third Day of a Seven Day Binge”

Could this be a return to the glammed-up 'Mechanical Animals' era?

David Bowie
“Sue (Or In a Season of Crime)”

A "jazz-oriented" single brimming with restless bursts of brass, vaudevillian vocals, and a drum beat that's a few BPMs away from being an "Amen" break

SONG OF THE DAY:
Mr Twin Sister, “In the House of Yes”

Moving beneath a mirror ball as mid-tempo disco melodies are soaked in strings and a steady rhythm section
