Music Time! 2016 New Music, Volume 1

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 1, with album titles A through E. 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!

NOTES:

  • 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! “Peace & Harmony” Edition. 7/8/16

19920508_001 Train ride to Paris

It’s been a brutal few days for violence, racial tension, and hatred. I was supposed to be at a show tonight (sorry Adoration Destroyed and element a440), but when we got home I was just mentally exhausted. I’m not giving up, but I need some peace, harmony, unity, and in the back of my head I know those kind of goals are wishful thinking. Plenty of Facebook “friends” proved that over the past few days with their racist comments. Sigh… well, at least there’s music…

So music about peace and harmony it is.
