I love most everything synth-based, especially Synthpop, Futurepop, EBM, Industrial, Industrial Dance, Synthwave, Darkwave, etc. Hell, I even like synth-based New Age music (in other words, not Yanni). But you know what I really like? Those genres with women vocalists! So it’s music time with women vocalists in the Synthpop, Futurepop, EMB, Industrial, and Darkwave world! I didn’t realize there were so many until I actually started thinking about it. There are so many I’m going to have to break this up! So here is Volume 1: A to B!
So let’s get started!

The first time I heard this song I was hooked on her voice, of which I said was “beautifully traumatic.” I went back to albums before The Dividing and have kept up every since!

Yep, you’re reading that right. Berlin put out a new album in 2013 and it was really good. It was modern, with hints of 80’s Berlin and of course Terri Nunn’s voice is killer as always!
I know Berlin was touring back in October (including a 10/14 stop in El Paso, TX), but not sure if they’re still on the road.

SONG: Golden Glass

It’s been a while since I posted some music. Since today is July 4th, I’m going with music about Independence, Freedom, Treason, Rebellion, etc. So let’s see what MediaMonkey comes up with!
Happy 4th to everyone! Please stay cool and safe as you celebrate today. Lots of heat issues out there, so stay hydrated and watch for signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Oh, and keep your pets cool as well.
