Synthpop Saturday

Seems I didn't post last night's entry, and I forgot what I had to offer. I can say that this is superb synthpop from Some Desperate Glory:

Stream Eternal Summers "Correct Behavior"

Stream Eternal Summers. “Correct Behavior” is out July 24th. I love this band!

XX Junkie Churches

The Pop Cop has a great entry on CHURCHES and it includes an .mp3 of the killer "Lies".

♫ I received another take down notice today. This time, it was for posting a legal remix of Foster The People in 2011. What does that mean? No more Foster The People news here, ever again. WGAS?

♫ I am no fan of "preview" tracks, so I am not embedding this. While I love Junkie XL, I am sad to hear him dip into the dubstep bucket of sounds for teens on this "The Dark Knight Rises" track.

♫ I posted a 20 minute mix preview (didn't I just say I don't like previews?) of Like Sugar PopCast 40. Download it here.

♫ Another MNDR track to share!

♫ This is everywhere now, but I'll hop on the bandwagon in case you missed this new one from the XX:

A Cornucopia

♫ Rolling Stone is hosting a free .mp3 download of "You Kill" by Eternal Summers here.

♫ Several Legendary Pink Dots albums have been remastered and are available on Bandcamp. Edward Ka-spel has completed a new album entitled "This Saturated Land" and it is also on the Dot's page.

♫ This is a great dance remix of MNDR's "Sparrow Voices" by Dominique Keegan (Plant Music):

♫ Earlier this week, The Cure played live in Spain. The live-stream cut out a few times and the band's equipment failed. Robert kept the show going with some acoustic action.
