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

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 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

Called Treasures it invokes that classic eighties sound that one associates … Continue reading

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

Telecom Falls – Apart

Canadians Telecom Falls describe themselves as a “post-goth/shoegaze”band and the fusion of dream-pop with hints of 1980s 4AD on Apart is not far off the mark meeting that description either. I like the Asian influences on the sampling which works well with the ethereal and Gothic voice of lyricist and vocalist Lydia Low. Apart is … Continue reading

Post Punk Tuesday

Molchat Doma – Zvezdy Molchat Doma hail from Minsk, Belarus. Last years Etazhi album was one of the best post-punk releases of 2018 or indeed any other of the past five years. New track Zvezdy continues in pretty much the same vein. If it ain’t broke? Keyboards/Synths clash with bass-lines and frantic vocals. Quite a … Continue reading
