Music Time! “Women of Synth” (Volume 3: F to J) Edition! 11/06/16

womeninsynth

I love most everything synth-based, especially Synthpop, Futurepop, EBM, Industrial, Industrial Dance, Synthwave, Darkwave, etc. Hell, I even like some 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 (and musicians) 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’ve had to break this up! So here is Volume 3: F to J!

Without a doubt my favorite local band here in Austin. The genius musical talents of Mike Peña, the awesome percussion work of @Shawnie Doogans, and the brilliant and wrenching (as in tugs on your soul) vocals of Lisa Perkins make for an amazing combination. If you live in Austin keep an eye out for this up-and-coming band who recently opened for Assemblage 23.

And go buy their album! You won’t regret it. It’s a nonstop barrage of awesomeness and synth magic. Oh, and they just released a cover Journey’s “Who’s Crying Now?” that’s beautifully tragic and gloriously magical at the same time, so give that a listen as well.

Such an influential band in the synth-based music world (even to this day)! This is definitely a band that cannot be left off any Women of Synth list (even if the women vocalist were often background vocals for the lead male vocal)!
