Hehe, that Mega Drive track isn't really my thing. It's not bad though.

A couple of releases today, but to not make a list of stuff I'll just post the one I enjoyed the most so far. Only listened through the phone though (really need new headphones).

The new album by Isidor.

That Isidor album didn't seem to click when I listened a couple weeks ago, but seems actually pretty solid. New release from Earmake, 'Parallels', seems pretty solid too.

Usually want to pick something a litle older for my song of the day choices, but I can't get this Miami Beach Force song out of my head. These vocals make me melt. Problem is I can't find out if she's just a guest on this track, or actually in MBF now and which would mean their future releases should have these great vocals too.

Put $20 into the bundle for the top tier. There are some great albums there and the FLAC's will sound great on my new headphones.

Yeah, that is a lot of content.

Song of the Day is one of my favourite tracks from that very first compilation...

Rain Sword - Heart of Light

Haven't checked out any new releases that would steal away from a song of the day, so here we go.

Song of the Day...

my "new" car still has a tape deck in it, so ive been going on a crazy spree trying to nab up as many synthwave/retrowave/city pop cassettes as i can, and its such a bummer because whenever i find something i think is pretty rad via Bandcamp, inevitably the limited release tapes are sold out. i sometimes have luck via Discogs (where i nabbed a Macross 82-99 AMMA for pretty cheap), but man. i know i can just get one of those tape deck adapters to play music from my phone or something, but its not the same as pulling a tape from the center console and stabbing it into the deck.

anyone have some recs for maybe lesser known but really solid synth or city pop-esque albums with cassettes still available? as much as i love it, im looking less for darkwave or harder cyberpunky synth, and more poppy, funky stuff. for instance, that Lost Outrider's Heart posted above is a jammer (of course, sold out :( by the time i saw it), L8 NITE TV by Crystal Cola, and CITY DRIVE II by Groove FM its summer and i need some good window-down, hair-in-the-wind sunny-day tunes to cruise to.
It looks like The Midnight just restocked some of their tapes.

I usually listen to them at least once :) On vacation now this week though so won't listen to the once posted in the coming days. But when I get home.

Most of them are great. I'd prefered Loosing sleep from Freeweights though. :)
Yes, I was debating between a few different Freeweights tracks :) As long as I know someone is checking them out!
