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!
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!
Do yourself a favor and buy ALL of her albums!

Creatures came out this year and if you don’t own it, you’re doing yourself a disservice!

I wish she did the vocals on every Attic Base song.

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.
ARTIST: The Birthday Massacre
ARTIST: Blind Faith and Envy
SONG: Golden Glass
ALBUM: The Charming Factor (Extended)
Tonight is the 3rd Annual Austin Vampire Carnival. Suzie and I are excited about going. I’m definitely ready to get out and have some fun after the crazy last two days. So while we’re waiting for it to kick off tonight, how about some vampire music?
Time to put MediaMonkey on shuffle again and see what comes out. Remember, I do this in the hopes of introducing people to new bands. So if you hear something you like, go buy their CD and go to their local shows!
Originally done by Bauhaus, this is a really good cover that adds more electronic to the song.
ARTIST: You Shriek
SONG: Bela Lugosi’s Dead
ALBUM: Bela Lugosi’s Dead
Not all of my friends liked this album by E&B because Ian wasn’t the lead singer for this album. Don’t get me wrong, I love Ian’s vocals, but this album was equally good musically and I liked the vocals on this one as well.
ARTIST: Echo and the Bunnymen
SONG: Flaming Red
