Putting the sinister into synthpop New Wave covers.
Posted Monday, November 19, 2018.
"If I'm Gone Tomorrow (It's Because of Aliens)" - MUNYA
Psychedelia-laced pre break-up space optimism.
"San' Yago" - Cave
Tasty Chicago Jam.
"Stay Awake" - Johnny Hostile
Scratchy warble electro swells, done gud.
"Taishi-Koto, Pt. 1" - L'Eclair
A not unpleasant amount of soundtrack-y organ.
"Steady State" - Rimarimba
Pulsing lo-fi guitar vs electronicalism and drones. From Felixstowe. Obviously.
"Deterritory" - Young Jesus
It's nice to know someone in LA still makes brainrock.
"In the Middle of the Night" - Still Corners
I mean, someone is probably going to have to write Pink Floyd a cheque at some point but that doesn't mean it's not glorious.
