I’m excited this week to be able to play the amazing brand new a-ha track. It is fabulous. The rest of the show features a variety of brand new releases spanning Indie Pop, Indie Rock, Synthpop and Dark Wave.
Wow…there is just a ton going on here…within the opening seconds you’ve got a Post-Punk bassline, then wait…some jangle that could signal some lighter Indiepop ala Bleachers is on the way, followed by ‘Twinkles’ found in many Raveonettes tracks and then finally some Synth reminescent of Eurythmics? What the hell direction are we going? Mind you we are only 20 seconds in. Finally we get some deep baritone vocals and all of these disparate sounds start to come together rather nicely.
This mix celebrates some of my favorite recent Post Punk tracks. The songs in this mix will remind you of bands like Interpol, Jesus & Mary Chain, and plenty of other post punk favorites. Most of these bands are pretty new, so this is a good way to explore some up and coming bands.
