Music Time! “Women of Synth” (Volume 1: A to B) Edition! 11/04/16

Wendy Carlos working on the music from Disney's TRON.

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!

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!
