Picks Of The Week:

  • Palmira, Colombia industrial/minimal synth/minimal wave solo project HUMAN 80 “La fábrica de la muerte” on Navel Records                                                                                                                                         

Proof of the increasingly strong and fervent Colombian dark synth scene, and industrial electronic in general, here is the new hard-hitting, robotic, cold, minimal synth wave dance cracker from Palmira‘s producer Anthony Said Grueso.

  • Nantes, France coldwave/new wave/synth-pop project of Niko Disorder, aka PRINZESSIN “Rise” new single on TONN Recordings.

New single from French musician harnesses its addictive and persuasive ways through repetitive beats, hypnotic basslines and soaring dramatic glassy synths, over rich, pained, brooding vocals make for, at once crystalline and sultry, elegant synth-pop goodness.

  • Norfolk, Virginia darkwave/goth music project created by Thomas Duerig, aka THE PURGE “Rain” title track from forthcoming album.

New spectral and ominous post-punk song, possibly one of his best to date, from Virginia based Thomas Duerig, aka The Purge.  Dire and pained vocals cut a sway through an unsettling, murky, claustrophobic instrumental atmosphere of dark alluring gothic mystery.
