I'm enjoying some good old synthpop on myspace. Give this play-list a try before it's gone: http://www.myspace.com/electropopfestival
You'll note that Ostrich and Universal Poplab both played this festival on October 17th. I have included both acts on my Like Sugar PopCast over the years. This line-up really impressed me. Wish something like this could happen here in the USA. I miss the Synth-con that A Different Drum did...
Oh, what else...seems I post things on twitter more than on my blog... you can add me, I am @djtalbot. The train-wreck looks like this:
The Word Magazine (UK) has @DotAllison on it's Nov CD: "Paved With A Little Pain" http://bit.ly/D26nd
Potty Mouth Sissys have a new myspace page (previous one was hacked).
Depeche Mode - Somebody - Live In Buenos Aires -17-10-2009 http://bit.ly/3B4K43 #depechemode
Blah, blah, you get the idea.
Head over to http://stytzer.blogspot.com/ and offer some encouragement. I rely on this blog to keep me up with what's worth my time in Northern European music.
So, I am working on Like Sugar #28, and I have The Sound of Arrows, The Raveonettes, Mixtapes & Cellmates, Girls, Glas vegas, James Yuill, Neon Indian, Gary Numan, Project Pitchfork (can you believe it? Best material from them ever), Editors, O. Children, Gang of Four, Pet Shop Boys, Pati Yang, Mika and more...all this must be boiled down to the strongest track-list.
