Post Punk Tuesday

Suffering For Kisses – Change Tony D’Oporto aka Suffering For Kisses has always had a deadpan vocal style to run alongside his blend of moody inspired darkwave beats. But on Change he turns in his best vocal effort to date sounding something like Johnny Cash fronting a post-punk band. This is good, really good.

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 French or English, given their native city, but have since … Continue reading Something For The Weekend? Three (More) Post-Punk

Grasshopper hail from Brighton and, in their … Continue reading The Sunday Post-Punk Session

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 a bit too dancey for the average coldwave/post-punk fan but … Continue reading The Bank Holiday Session
