Vacance – Bord De Mer

Vacance is a new band hailing from Bordeaux, France. They comprise of Allison who provides both words and voice alongside Laurent (Lokomotiv Sofia) and Michaël (Feutre/Watoo Watoo). Like many indiepop bands these days they draw heavily on post-punk influences such as coldwave, minimal wave and synth-pop. The fact they have been compared to the early … Continue reading

Defender Waves – The Caroline Phase

Defender Waves is the project of the same individual behind Dallas Tears. Whereas the latter has been described as “lo-fi bedroom shoegaze” this EP is pure electronica. It’s A Starry Night, Sunrise Girl is laid back techno soul whilst the title track gets brings up imaginary of space and the odd robot or two. Shoulders … 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

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

Silent & Alone – A Post-Punk Mix

It’s been at least a month or so since the last post-punk mix and in that time there have been plenty of excellent singles and a few albums. Primarily a coldwave mix there is more than enough to keep you entertained whilst I am away for a few days in Budapest as it mixes the … Continue reading

Фирма-однодневка – ЭВМ

ЭВМ (Computer) is the follow up to February’s Ты знаешь. It’s a fine EP delving into synth pop, coldwave and other post-punk elements involving electronica. The vocals are stern, harsh and sometimes are almost on the spoken side of things whilst sung over vigorous synths/keyboards. It’s the italo-house/Blue Monday inspired В танце (Dance) that stands … Continue reading

Alternative stream at Hearthis.at Fall Tracklisting: Automatic – Calling It Calling It has thumping bass dominated groove with single tone, almost spoken, vocals … Continue reading

Anyway here is a selection of Post-Punk tunes from the past couple of months readymade for the goth/coldwave dance floors. Tracklisting: Handful Of Snowdrops – … Continue reading
