Stop Taking My Time

A fun cover from my fav remixers:

Here, we have Club 8 being more upbeat than usual. I love it.

March 13 post part 2

This just came in and I was immediately taken in. I love electronic music done right! There is a little Anything Box woven in here (I can hear real emotion, not just by-the-numbers lyrics).

Where else where you hear a demo from an upcoming album? I will toot my own horn here and share this floor-filler from At Last At Last.

I could go on and on about this year's fine friends, but I can only type so much. Do know that "Prose and Kahns" by Old English is and album I listen to every day. They write "We've been really overwhelmed and humbled and thrilled and so on by the response to our new album!  Thanks for listening to it, writing about it and sharing it.  If you still haven't heard it, it's available on bandcamp and iTunes.

March Sadeness

There was no Synthpop for your Saturday or Sunday this past week. That was by design. I lost a friend in an untimely death and I thought I would keep quiet while I contemplated it all. No one likes a sad-sack, so I will keep with the usual genius finds that you love. If you want Sisters of Mercy, by all means join me on YouTube late at night.
For now, I can offer this safe-yet-satisfying video from British Sea Power.

Another one from the pleasantly harmonic Love And Radiation:

The brand new album from Mary Onettes is now officially out and I adore it. I streamed it here.

Of course, SXSW is happening. I have my agents out and about and I will have at least one sentence to post about the next big thing. For now, I will feel sorry for my friends in Austin. I know they can't see every show and they are tired by midnight.

Synthpop For Your Sunday

It's either Saturday or Sunday when I try to share some synthpop. Today, I came across the artwork for the new ZyniC album "Blindsided". The first album came out in 2011 and was a perfect showcase of several genres. I'll leave you with this more accessible piece, but there's some industrial, some dark-dancefloor, and everything in between on the 2011 "Fire Walk With Me" release. I am very confident that 2013's "Blindsided" will bring more excellent music.

The Capsules and Cranes

Something a little more bleak than my usual posts. This one comes from The Capsules. They will be at SXSW on March 13. I am hoping one of my friends will catch them there. I hear some parallels to Cranes and that is what caught my ear.
