  • Mexican post-punk band Cat Fiction “Baltimore” from the EP “Taste Like Sun” on We are one Records

It is curious how some post-punk Mexican bands sound akin to their “Doomer” Russian counterparts, it’s the case of the debut EP of Mexico City outfit Cat Fiction, amidst swaggering webs of blistering ringing guitar melodies, punchy bouncing rhythms, winding pulsating basslines, and invigorating, emotional vocals to do it exceedingly well constantly steeped in heartfelt melancholy and subconscious pain, the addictive “Baltimore” above all, while “Serotonin” gives glimpses of possible more introspective, downtrodden realms. Excellent debut.

  • Canada/Portugal goth /darkwave /post-punk duo Alone After Midnight “Without Her” title track from the debut EP “Alone After Midnight”

Doesn’t certainly lack in dark romanticist charm and nocturnal mysterious intrigue the debut EP from the international duo Alone After Midnight, where abrasively hypnotic sparkling guitar riffs intersect with a somber serpentine bass line around buried baritone vocals whimpering malaise and mortality, fatally “Without Her.”

  • Norwegian electronic /synthpop duo of Isak Rypdal & Alexander Bjørneboe from Oslo, Electro Spectre “A Different Kind Of Love” new single taken from the upcoming album ‘Stereo Dreams’ on CrabKeyRecords

Veteran Norwegian duo’s elegant and endearing yet uncompromising electro-pop vision seems to know no down-falls, even incorporating synthwave hues, in a both nostalgic yet refreshing new single, that swirls and sparks with retro sprightly icy, bright synth melodies and buzzing bass tones, weaving a danceable electric tapestry of dire romance around dizzying dual male vocals’ ecstatic and dramatic release of “A Different Kind of Love.”
