Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – JANUARY #02-23

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • Smolensk, Russia new wave /post-punk one-man band Gorodki “Call The Police” from the debut EP “Vampire”

Russian solo project showed up at the end of last year with his mesmeric and electrifying version of “The Perfect Girl”, as well included here, returns with a 4-track EP wrapped in sinister and dismal spectral soundscapes, imbued with a languid psychedelic vein, built with ceaselessly terse and glacial transfixing layers of echoing goth-clad guitar tones, hypnotic rhythms, and obsessive doomy bassline throbs into chilly grey, shapeshifting mists, around haunted vocal broods, lost in a compulsive headspace of traumatic unrest and desolate barren chasms.

  • Texas-based goth /dark electronic /darkwave audio and visual experimental side project of Don’t Get Lemon/Funeral Bloom member, COMITI “Queen of Silver” single

Trance-like synth-heavy new single from Austin‘s electronic experimentalist builds eerie auras, injecting fear and joy into a surreal world of lashing marching beats, gurgling and percolating throbbing low ends, and epic entrancing dazzling synth swirls surrounding groveling sinister vocals, bouncing back and forth into an unrestrained chaotic last dancing ride of impending doom.

  • Medellin, Colombia Cold Wave /Post-Punk solo project No Juventud “Dolor” single off the upcoming EP “Nudos” 

Droning and dirgey new single to tease the upcoming EP for the Colombian one-man band with shivering ceremonial synth strains, and undulating bass lines with disconnected, jolted frequencies to shred numb distorted vocals into lost broken pieces of abandoned pain.
