Music Time! Random Shuffle. 12/09/16

synthesizer01

It’s music time again! Why do I do this? Well, in the hopes of introducing people to new synth-based music (EBM, Futurepop, Synthpop, Synthwave, Darkwave, Industrial, Industrial Dance, Electro, etc). So give the bands a listen and if you like what you hear, then go and pay for their album and support the bands!

NOTES: 1) I own (as in paid for, or was gifted) all of the music that I feature. I also attend as many local shows that I can to support bands when they’re on tour. Please do the same and support music! 2) Unless I’m doing a themed Music Time!, then all songs are from MediaMonkey being on shuffle and I put them here in the order MediaMonkey plays them for me (exceptions only if MediaMonkey duplicates a band during the shuffle or there is no video on YouTube for the song).

Music Time! “Home” Edition. 7/20/16

20160716_141810

While traveling is always fun, it’s always great to finally get home. It was a long trip going after the monsoon with mostly a bust. A really cool storm in the distant south of Show Low, AZ and some rain and rainbows in Albuquerque. But the scenery of the desert and mountains definitely compensated for the general lack of storms. Of course AZ lit up after we left. LOL

So I’m home and some home music is good today…

I get to see these guys on 7/29 in Houston!
