Robert Smiths is smiling on the flyer as he can’t believe he will be touring again in 2016. He starts off tonights show which features some dreampop, synthpop, electronica and dark wave. New tracks from Editors, Big Black Delta, IAMX and SPC ECO highlight the show
Last weeks show had a ton of big name new releases, and I think we topped that this week with brand new songs from New Order, Suede, The Editors, Lust For Youth and Brandon Flowers…plus all sorts of other synth goodies
What is a Slobberknocker? It’s a song that gets you off your ass, bopping up and down, and possible singing at the top of your lungs. It’s a song that sets you in a frenzy on the dance floor for no apparent reason. It’s fun, it’s high energy and these are some of my favorite Slobberknockers.
This weeks show features exciting new releases from Chvrches, The Editors and SPC ECO plus lot of new bands to introduce in the genres of synthpop, trip hop and indie.
This is Volume 2 in the mix series of songs that sound like they would be included in a modern day John Hughes Soundtrack. I used a few different approaches in picking songs. Some of these songs might perfectly fit in one of his 80s masterpieces while others are guess how the sounds that he covets might have evolved over the years.
This episode features exciting new releases from IAMX and Editors. Plus, a side project from Patrick Fitzgerald (singer and bassist from Kitchens Of Distinction) called Stephen Hero featuring Tanya Donelly (Belly) on vocals.
Today the UK indie rock band Editors delivered their second new single this year. Continuing where they left off with No Harm, Marching Orders is a powerful balled that will hopefully be filling large stadiums in a town near you soon. I say “large stadiums” because I feel that it is the progression that this band is taking. In my mind, the band is hitting their stride with U2’s Joshua Tree era of songs.
This mix features a variety of Post Punk and Indie tunes that we like to call “Vampire Vocals”. It features all male singers who have deep dark voices. This is a great mix to listen to on your darkest days!
This mix doesn’t feature a particular genre of music. Instead, it features songs of a few different styles all of which make you “feel”. Some of them draw you in with the lyrics, others with the vocals, or perhaps the music. When listening to these songs, you can feel the emotion and honesty of the artist in their delivery.
