PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • Paris, French post-punk /coldwave act led by actor and singer, Günther Vanseveren, aka VANSEVEREN “Black Sky” produced by Echoberyl via their Mother Solitude Records

Parisian artist returns with wintry, spectral and gloomy gusts of angsty Coldwave allure imbued by hypnotic beat-driven cool bright synth washes of alienation and fear, pierced by suffering baritone guitar jolts in winding achingly emotional unison with edgy, angered gripping vocal delivery laced with dystopic lyrics wrought in an escapist fantasy of denial and anxiety.

  • Synth Post-Punk duo from Colombia, Das Kelzer ”An Dich Gebunden” [Nevel Records]                                       

Teutonic-inflected Colombian duo churn out dark, gritty and cavernous Post-punk dance that bounces its way through stark stomping beats, shivering buzzing bass tones, and alienated, glistening guitar tensions to encapsulate anguished and distorted vocals with agonizing frequencies of lyrical oppression and dread.

  • Vancouver, BC post wave duo Decomme “Disarray” from 2-track “II” single

Following last year’s compelling debut, Vancouver‘s duo are back with a two-tracker of their distinctive wistfully melodic, atmospheric yet subdued neurotic post-wave. Punchy hypnotic beats, droning, warbling bass pulses, sparkling guitar strains and airy glaring synth whirls wandering and resounding with nostalgic moods to provide the undulating framework of despair and melancholy for soft romantic male vocals confessing fearful mistakes, misunderstood denial and betrayed loyalty into an obsessive “Disarray” of broken dreams.
