True Faith – As Much Nothing As Possible

If I said to you describe what you think post-punk sounds like I bet pretty much that the description would be similar to the music True Faith have delivered on their debut (mini?) album As Much Nothing As Possible. Slow brooding bass riffs with a nod to Peter Hook supplemented by bursts of atmospheric synths complete with gloomy words and dark vocals. Er yeah, that … Continue reading True Faith – As Much Nothing As Possible

Toska Po Domu – Okurki/Myasnaya Lavka

Toska Po Domu (Homesickness) is the side project of Konstantin Ostrovsky who also records as Kondratie. Whereas the latter is synthpop as dark as it can be the music here is vintage-sounding coldwave.

A Monday Trio

Three very different acts for today’s Trio…… Suffering For Kisses – Innocence It’s Christmas so this dose of post-punk miserablism is just the tonic. Tony D’Oporto words and deadpan vocals work well against the harmonic synths whilst the guitars add another atmospheric layer. On the “flip” we get a remix of September’s Ashes single courtesy of Assemblage 23 who add some deeper, dancefloor orientated beats … Continue reading A Monday Trio

Really Really

So it’s another Saturday after a Bandcamp Friday post so here is a 10 track “mixtape” of some of the tunes I picked up featuring indiepop, post-punk, synthpop, krautrock and garage. I picked up plenty more, so much so that PayPal thought they were fraudulent transactions. Unless they were trying to be arbiters of taste of course………… Side A Lost Tapes – The Attraction Of … Continue reading Really Really

Pandemia

Another round-up of post-punk, synth-pop and goth-rock via a YouTube playlist.

Even on a Sunday. Factice Factory – Weimar (Facebook … Continue reading Isolation…..
