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

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

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

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 demos in the shape of Made by Design & Discshop … Continue reading Post-Punk Sunday
