Gary Numan - Intruder

2021-07-01 / DamienG / Reads: 3248

He has been capable of shifting aesthethics, like a conceptual chameleon, in drastic, broad movements, only to emerge on the other side – as a gentleman synth pioneer (The Pleasure Principle), survivor of the Earth undone (Warriors) or mad-hatter of a fractured psyche (Splinter) – a musician fully in control...

Kr-Lik waved goodbye to Controlled Collapse but his creative impulses shine through with Clicks – his more straightforwardly electro-oriented project that seems neither side nor intellectually subservient to the moody catalog of his now defunct industrial persona.

"Everything comes from black and loses itself in white" - the motto of the newest Die Form album are the words of Louis Bertand Castel, eighteenth-century scholar and pioneer of visual music, who tried to connect sound waves with visible electromagnetic waves. Today, it seems that it is the French...

Vanguard - Retribution

2018-04-28 / carpenterk / Reads: 3918

Synthpop is a genre represented  in large number in Sweden, inter alia by Hjärta, Melody Club, Page, SPOCK and many others.  VANGURAD in another band from this country, that fits very well to the '80 atmosphere of electronics.  The last day of February 2014 brought us a new album from...
