  • Australian goth post-punk band (members of The Faculty, Alien Nosejob and Exhaust World), from Melbourne, Body Maintenance “Sheets” off upcoming 12″ S/T EP via Unwound Records.

Lasting sediments of 80s misty cold Mancunian sonic realms scatter over a minimal, dark and moody post-punk burner, fraught with emotional-ridden tension, ignite by urgent, punchy tinny rhythm pulsing hypnotically along with bleak bassline beneath a scorching flicker of sharp guitars, bleeding dire exhaustion over caustic male vocals, fueled by sublimely majestic female back-ups, brimming with an exasperated release of modern angsty dystopian blues.

  • Novosibirsk, Russia post-punk /darkwave /synthwave /coldwave solo project NEON HELL “Sworn in the void” new single

Still inconstant and looking for a personal sound, albeit able to write sometimes brilliant songs, Siberian post-punker’s new single walks the line of the most wistful and sad, yet sublimely moving, The Cure and Tears For Fears tones, with bleak hypnotic low-end throbs, mechanical rhythms and wandering somber icy synth melodies twinkling around numb, hopeless male vocals scattered with anxious longings, to ooze cold melancholic introspections, replete with dread and constraint.

  • Swiss experimental /NDW /coldwave /psychedelic /minimal wave /synthpop side project of Carlo Onda, Karl Kave “Nöd Urban” new single

You never know what to expect from Karl Kave AKA Carlo Onda, for sure he never lacks boldness and vision, this time a refined, danceable and tribal slice of enveloping synth-pop, propelled by swaying off-tempo hypnotic conga-like patterns, restrained groovy funky guitar riffs and sparse warm licks, cut by swelling icy synth chords, as atmospheric soft-spoken male vocals exude subdued breathless thrills of Teutonic urban tension.
