Strangeways Radio has put together our Top 20 Albums of 2019 covering the genres of Synthpop, Post Punk, Dark Wave, Indie, Modern/Alt Rock, Dreampop and Electronica.
This weeks compilations feature the latest new releases in Synthpop and Electronica. Some of our favorites include the tracks from PVRIS, Honey Beard, Chromatics and The Boxer Rebellion.
Just as we were finalizing our year end Best Of playlists, the Chicago synth band EchoDroides released a new EP called In Shadows that is causing us to rearrange our top 25. In Shadows is a 5 song EP that packs a strong synth punch. There sound lies somewhere in between the melodic vocals of Depeche Mode and the dark full sound of Gary Numan.
