Music Time! 2016 New Music, Volume 4

synthesizer01

My theme this time is “2016 New Music!” I put all the music released in 2016 and sorted it alphabetically by album. This is Volume 4, with album titles T through Z. Some bands put out more than one album in 2016, so you may see them twice in different volumes. 2016 was a fantastic music year if you like synth-based music! It was also a phenomenal year for concerts for me. I got to see some amazing artists in concert, from Assemblage 23 to the Pet Shop Boys. Here’s hoping 2017 is just as magical!

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!

NOTE: 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!

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!
