Weekly Post-Punk / Darkwave / Dark Synth Tips #45


Picks Of The Week:


  • California‘s coldwave/darkwave/post-punk solo project ACCUMORTIS “Lost To Art” taken from the first full-length album, “Deathwave” due out Dec. 10th, through Nowhere Now Records

Finally, the long-awaited full-length debut album “Deathwave” from Californian DIY musician Accumortis is closer to becoming a reality, the first creepy synth-laden preview drips with a deeply dark and horrifying ingrained tension that will stick with you for long while. 

  • Transsolar – “Reflexion” from V/A “Toilettes publiques n°4” cassette fresh DIY post-punk/minimal synth/trash wave hits from the actual Berlin scene via French label Spielzeug Muzak

Awesome limited tape via Spielzeug Muzak of fresh DIY post-punk/minimal synth/punk hits from the current Berlin scene with amazing little lo-fi DIY gems from mysterious acts like Transsolar, Cheese Morphine, Keller Kinder, Uzi & Tversk, Eternal, Concrete Eyes, etc. If anyone knew anything about them, drop me a line!

  • Nantes, France coldwave/new wave/synth-pop solo project, aka PRINZESSIN “This Romance” from ”Exit Wounds” EP out Monday 25th November 2019 via TONN Recordings.                                                                                  

Since the first time I listened to the pristine electro-pop tunes from the French artist I was amazed, I felt he was something special, the bouncing and euphoric synthetic rhythms, the equally energetic and minimal synth riffs, his rich, heartfelt and powerful Glenn Gregory-like baritone vocals, that remind me the best bits of the heyday of UK synthpop, the Human League, The Soft Cell, Heaven 17, just to be clear. The new single continues to progress on the same superb path, can’t wait next week for the whole EP. Another impeccable release from TONN Recordings headquarter.
