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!
I was on vacation for two weeks and I’m ready to get some more music out there!!!
You can listen to all of these songs in a solid stream on my MixCloud page!
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).
I usually put this out at the end of the year, but I still had some music to import into my library and wanted to make sure I had everyone on the list!
2014 was a great year for music. It wasn’t as an amazing year as 2013 was for quantity, but what it lacked in quantity it certainly made up for with quality. A lot of great bands that I love put out new music in 2014.
I’m a huge fan of EBM, Futurepop, Industrial Dance, Synthpop, New Wave, etc. I’m always happy to see the scene continue to produce new bands and great music. And this year marked new albums by some bands a few of us older folks will recognize, like Billy Idol, Information Society, and Simple Minds!
