New Music! Random Shuffle. 12/05/16

synthesizer01

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: 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).

Music Time! “Synthesizer Edition” 6/22/16

KorgMS2000Banner

Tonight is Boom Boom Palace (A Night of Synthpop) at Elysium Austin! So in honor of tonight… I’m posting some synthesizer music!

Synthpop is the grandparent of a lot of modern music (yes, even Top 40). From early bands, the influence on New Wave, New Age, and into the future with Futurepop, EBM, and yes, even things like Trance, Dance, and EDM. Industrial and Industrial Dance all have roots in synthpop and thanks to the guys who started playing with electronic sounds and instruments so many decades ago. And now we’re seeing a Synthpop Revival and it’s amazing!!!

So I’m posting songs from the beginnings to the modern movement of the synthesizer!
