Pandemia

Another round-up of post-punk, synth-pop and goth-rock via a YouTube playlist. Maybe I should have kept some of these tracks back for the end of the month and for the Halloween kitchen/living room dancefloors! BlakLight – Unknown Love (Facebook – Buy) Sara Stuttgart – Женщина в Колодце (Facebook – Buy) undertheskin – End This Summer … Continue reading

Isolation…..

I don’t think my love of all things post-punk is shared by many who visit these pages so if you do this mix, rounding up post-punk purchases from the past couple of months and not featured elsewhere on the blog, is for you. 10 tracks of coldwave, darkwave, synth-pop and goth-tinged rock to get stuck … Continue reading

Post Punk Tuesday

A quartet of post-punk tunes with some nice video accompaniment on the side! True Faith – Feel The follow up to the True Faith’s self-titled debut EP has been out since last month. Feel is an addictive listen with enough synth hooks to catch a shoal of fish as the song blends synthpop and goth … Continue reading

Something For The Weekend? Three (More) Post-Punk

This weeks pack of three concentrates on three new or recent post-punk releases. The City Gates – Siegfried 1969 Montreal post-punk band The City Gates have released their new single Siegfried 1969. It’s a pulsating and addictive coldwave/gothic rock song. I was a bit confused as to why they were singing in German rather than … Continue reading

The Sunday Post-Punk Session

The Dreams Never End are from Lisbon and this song was originally recorded for the Polis Noire compilation by Portuguese label Z22 which, not for the want of trying, I cannot find anywhere. Vai is a slice of synthpop that edges further into darker territory as the song progresses with some swirling, haunting keyboard sounds … Continue reading

The Bank Holiday Session

The late May bank holiday listening session is primarily synthpop and coldwave. Surely even the “indiest” indie kid needs some coldwave and synth-pop in their lives….. Personal Touch – Egami The label of Australian two-piece Personal Touch writes that they draw “heavily on influences from new wave and post-punk”. The four tracks may initially sound … Continue reading

Mo Dotti – Inverted Skies

The new single from Los Angeles based Mo Dotti is a dreamy shoegaze song but with forsaken words. The vocals seems sad and lonely as they blend with the fitful but sometimes wavering guitars. It’s hard not to sigh with the feelings of desolation the song brings. Mesmermising. Facebook

Post-Punk Sunday

The new single from Cold Cave is a cover of Absolute Body Control‘s Waving Hands. It stays faithful to the original although sounding darker and denser. Get it from here whilst the original version is available here. Warsaw Pact have released an album of demos called, erm Demos (2016-2109). The release includes two previously unheard … Continue reading

Post-Punk Saturday

Siberian based Goden Do have released their debut single in the shape of Номер Один (Number One). It’s a lively coldwave number in which synths and the deadpan, almost spoken words that are synonymous with the genre work well together. It’s backed with a cover of Понедельник originally by ПОСТная херня, which after tracking it … Continue reading

The Post (Punk) Ear Infection Catch Up Post #3

Quite a lot of post-punk has been bookmarked this year without too much of a mention on these pages. Time to rectify that. Das Funus come from one of my favourite cities (Prague) and they released two tracks in February. These are their first recordings for a few years. The band’s sound is darkwave with … Continue reading
