A Wildly Good Playlist

I think the blog format is becoming obsolete. It's easier to reach music fans via Twitter (and then posting playlist links). If you want to keep up with very new finds, please keep up with this growing playlist:

Mid Week Update

Wow, this is rather good. Helios has loads of material out there and this is the best I have heard in a while. I like his unique voice, as it's not your standard male-diva sound. It's a free download too!

More synth satisfaction. These mixes bring me back to the 80's and somehow feel modern. I am sharing this all over the place:

Delighted, myself, to hear Lamb will be releasing a 6th album:

Synthpop for your Saturday and more

Not not exactly synthpop, this is worth a listen. I think Twin Shadow should get more attention. The music is that good, even live.

 New one from Only You:

A new-to-me act from Indiana:

How lovely is this? From a free comp!

There was a time when I listened to this kind of music way too much. Early 90's was a great era for me.

Here's a newer one that captures the classic Gothic sound:

Of course, by now, my readers are aware of the new Peter Murphy release "Lion". I am rather pleased with this release.

Synthpop for your Saturday

Junica continue to produce synthpop that is a cut above.

Not precisely synthpop, but has enough elements to make it a worthy post today. On any day, it's a nice mid-tempo song that feels right any time of day. It's all about the strings on this one.

Still Riding The Synth Wave

Excellent dark synthpop from Mac (one half of BIOnighT, an Italian "Berlin School" duo that split in 2011). Link is here, as Bandcamp embedding isn't showing for me. Trust me, this is what makes synthpop so appealing. It's dance-able, it's emotional.

How great is this old Dutch track? I read that Minny Pop's second album is out on double vinyl. I need to get more from them.

Synthpop for your Saturday

I am continuing my series of synth-driven songs on Saturdays. First up is this mid-tempo stabby one from Lust For Youth on Sacred Bones Records.

This one is rather accessible, mixing classic elements with modern vocal stylings.
