New OMD is pretty good....a bit of a throwback to some really early stuff. They are a favorite band of mine and I think their prior album was better than this one....bu this one is still good!

I love this version of the Star Pilots' song. Becker sang on the original version too. Very 80's sounding.

I diggit!

Another single from the new album 'Peach Club'  due tomorrow 09.02.

I love this one too.

I must say that this is quite a departure from their previous sound which is far more standard modern rock.

love this new direction though

Love 'em both. These guys used to be a post-hardcore band (screamo type stuff for when that term was a thing) and I lost interest in them a long time ago. I'm going to check out their last album too based on this. Obviously this is a big change in direction, but I wonder how long ago they dropped the screams...? 

Can't wait to hear this new album for sure.

the last 2 albums aren't screamy but didn't interest me.

love the mix of synthpop with club and electro/freestyle in these tracks... angsty and dark, but yet so danceable :)

Cause & Effect - Another Minute (1991)

 

Celebrate the Nun - Unattainable Love (1989)

 

Information Society - Running (1988)

Haven't seen them posted here on the forum, but Spotify has a couple of excellent Synth playlists:

This one has 880 songs, 59 hours long.

This one has 491 songs, almost 30 hours long:

 

402 songs, almost 30 hours:

 

And if you like synth/retro, Carpenter Brut may be up your alley:

"Nostalgic synthwave":

    • It's what made him famous, and for absolutely perfect reason, folks here is a little known comic, touring on the opey & anthony comedy tour, the previous comic was booed offstage, you've heard of notorious philly crowds, watch what happens when they start booing an unknown Bill Burr, this was legendary, wish it could have been recorded better.  
    • There's a couple of posts of this nature and yes, that's no good. But again, this side of the coin gets well represented, but can we allow some representation for the other side of the coin? Or is this a BLM situation again? Now, I don't have the stats any more than you or Moses or Jesus does. But let's say roughly 44,000,000 people have had this thing at last count. Are we allowed to acknowledge for a second that it is extremely likely that the overwhelming majority of these people have not and will not have lasting health issues? Are we allowed to say that, or are we just going to concentrate on the (probably relatively very small amount of) people that have - for whatever reason - had significant issues with the virus? Who, dare I say, would probably have issues had they had another non-Covid related health issue? I'm just going to pluck one from a hat because he's famous and we all know him, but can we acknowledge that Novak Djokovic had the virus and was then, a few weeks later,  playing tennis in Wimbledon and France at the highest possible level on the planet?  And there will be tens of millions of people that share a similar story to him. So let's please acknowledge this side of the coin before painting a picture that everyone who has had it is doomed for eternity.   I know this covid thing is something we need to acknowledge, but I just can't handle the over-dramatics, for lack of a better term. Yes, it's a part of life now. Like the flu, cancer and a million other ailments. It's there and we all know it. If I am not mistaken, there has never, ever been a vaccine for a coronavirus ever, in history. So there's probably a decent likelihood there may not ever be a vaccine for Covid-19. So what then? We just start every news bulletin with the daily infection rates for the rest of time, until the sun swallows earth? Is that the plan? When do we try to get on with some semblance of life, knowing what we know now?  One day, the human race is going to have to start living some kind of collective life again, with this thing amongst us. It is what it is.  Anyway, fuck it. I can't put into words properly my whole take on the thing. I'm just glad to see/hear I'm not alone. Covid-19 is not a good thing, BUT, in my opinion, the reaction to it has been, and continues to be well and truly disproportionate. I guess, in a nutshell, that's my 2 cents on the thing.  Let the hate commence but I don't really care because I already hate myself for wasting the time it took me to type that.  
    • Awesome isn’t it.. the production sounds improved and loving the heavier guitar tone. Wouldn’t surprise me if Erik Martensson wasn’t involved in some capacity.  Was only a few days back I was watching videos of the Sheffield gig back in 2010 - seriously good live band. 
    • One of my fave bands of all time. And to see them back for another round is simply an awesome news.  As for the new tune, it's a killer. Love it.

    • yup, looks like a new era is coming good news for us
    • I was gonna start a "Wig Wam" cover band called "The Wig Wam Teepees", but the whole ordeal made me feel too tense.
    • Apparently people with blood type O are less likely to contract covid, and if they get it, have less severe symptons. I'm O+ Woop woop!
