Music Time! “Non-Synth” Edition 10/22/16

20160928_233341

So it’s 3:30 in the morning and I’m still up. I’m tired, but my legs are bothering me (nerves from my car wreck and subsequent back surgery) and I’m out of meds. So I’m drinking alcohol as that helps calm the nerves down (I wish we had medical marijuana in Texas as that would really help).

In the meantime… some music. Most of the times I concentrate on synth-based music (Electro, EBM, Futurepop, Synthpop, Synthwave, etc), but tonight I’m going to tell MediaMonkey to ignore all those genres and play non-synth music.

I saw this band in Birmingham, Alabama a few years ago when they played with IAMX.

Time to put MediaMonkey on shuffle again and see what comes out. Remember, I do this in the hopes of introducing people to new bands. So if you hear something you like, go buy their CD and go to their local shows!

Not all of my friends liked this album by E&B because Ian wasn’t the lead singer for this album. Don’t get me wrong, I love Ian’s vocals, but this album was equally good musically and I liked the vocals on this one as well.
