Strangeways Radio has put together our Top 25 songs of 2019 covering the genres of Synthpop, Post Punk, Dark Wave, Indie, Modern/Alt Rock, Dreampop and Electronica.
This weeks playlist features our favorite songs from the entire catalog of Cold Cave; nearly 20 songs spanning from Love Comes Close to the latest single, Promised Land.
This weeks compilations feature the latest new releases in Post Punk. This features a few familiar names such as Cold Cave, Drab Majesty and The Present Moment plus some new bands to check out like Kuta and Twin Tribes. This is a great collection of dark and moody post punk gems.
Detroit’s Majestic Theatre recently welcomed an evening of genre-bending dark music to its stage, treating audiences to a trio of artists who blend synthpop, darkwave, industrial, electroclash, and dark pop in twisting litanies of mind-bending movement and melody. Danceable, but with an undercurrent of gleeful nihilism, all three bands presented the Motor City with a full night of incredible energy.
oday may be the birthday of Cold Cave frontman Wesley Eisold, but we are the ones getting the gift. As the band embarks on their 2019 tour, they released a new single called Promised Land. The timing is perfect because this is definitely one of those songs that you can’t wait to hear live. It’s a dark, romantic track that would do well in any dark wave / post punk club scene.
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 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.
