Hey ERA I need your help. I'm not well versed in the realm of Synthwave but managed to get my friend hooked on it too.
His birthday is coming up and I want to get him a new vinyl for his collection. He already has an album by Mitch Murder, the Stranger Things and Kung Fury soundtrack that he really likes.
Can anyone recommend me a vinyl that's similar to those? I myself would recommend Myrone but I can't find a vinyl of his work.
Just finished watching Summer of 84 myself. Wanted to really love it... but.. found it kinda boring actually. Soundtrack from Le Matos was great, but the movie just never really grabbed me.I saw the movie last night, I enjoyed it a lot (and Le Matos' soundtrack). A lot of people are going to write it off as riding the bandwagon of Stranger Things but it does it's own thing with the "group of friends investigating a mystery in 80's suburban America" trope.
The threat is very grounded, real and dark AF. The fact that the kids are up against an adult serial killer and it's treated with the dead-seriousness the subject has in the real world gives it a unique edge and doesn't draw comparisons to other, similar setups like Stranger Things or Goonies.
Holy shit this is fantasticAnother heavy synthwave album that I think is amazing, this one's more akin to Carpenter Brut
The drop at 2:00 on the first track...well you'll get the influence. My favorite track is Engraved On Metal @ 36:35. It's more videogame influenced, almost has a MASTER BOOT RECORD sound to it. The part around 39:30 in that song is out of control.
Vulta's music https://vulta.bandcamp.com/album/sigils All of the albums are Name Your Price. I have only checked out Sigils so far, but the whole album is basically a classic imo.
This is really cool. I've always thought MAVS put out some of the best produced music in the genre.Another new album by Makeup and Vanity Set
Magic Sword - In The Face Of Evil :)Does anyone know what song this is in the background? I know it's a popular track I just can't figure out and it's driving me crazy. Thanks
Oh no! Sorry I missed your post. It's even on this page, woops.No one must pay attention to my posts :) I posted that Scandroid track too. Mentioned how the album looks to have a good mix of everything from the few singles already.
New single from The Bad Dreamers is awesome, can't wait for the full debut album.
Should be a new Wolf and Raven album out as well tomorrow, so that should be pretty great.
You bet, love their stuff, posted this album when it came out a couple months ago, really great stuff. Hope others checked it out then.
It's now out!!
While I do agree on that we all need to remember they released an EP last year and an album two years ago. They are human after all. :)
Yeah, I'm in the same space. I've listened to America 2 a stupid amount of times.
