Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips – November #45-21

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • Bogotá, Colombia minimal synth/post-punk /dark wave project Climas Interiores “Tardes sombrías” from the new 2-track single “Tardes Sombrías”                           

New two-track EP from Bogotà‘s one-man band that leaves aside the chime of the guitars for a shadowy minimal synth that borders on the darkwave, to shape lonely physical discomfort through mysterious and dangerous moods of bass-driven droning doom, sad, sinister icy bright synth airs, and cold hollow male vocals, delivering oppressive shouts to invoke relentless heart-pounding dancing rhythms of remote pain.

  • Toronto, Ontario coldwave /synth wave /minimal synth musician ALAN HARMAN “Touch of Gray” new single.

Toronto‘s synthesist makes us taste a bitter chilly “Touch of Gray” over a one-take recording of the coldest, most hypnotic and languorous minimal synth bringing to its most oppressive degree, like being trapped in a spaceship in dark sidereal space apparently with no-way-out, through a macabre, nihilistic, and anxious search for the end of a dark frozen tunnel travelling through ominous aural clouds cut in harsh sinister strains, buzzing bass syncopations and dead serious vocals to conjure sterile isolation and lonely fear.

  • Albuquerque, New Mexico lo-fi /goth /post-punk /darkwave /coldwave solo project (formerly The Endless), Slow Danse With The Dead “Black and Blue” new single

New Mexico‘s DIY goth darkwaver drives us into an isolated dim pool of enveloping hopeless melancholy and cold conflicted mental pain, through excruciating claustrophobic tinkling auras of syncopated rhythms, dismal basslines, and tragic synths, slowly swelling and pulsing dread and relentless ambition embodied by stoic, lost baritone vocals of numb disassociation through a tightening burden of introverted shame.
