Rolling Synthwave/Retrowave/Outrun 2017 Thread

Message Bookmarked

I know a few of you like this stuff, a few synthwave albums got nominated for the 2016 EOY poll, so I thought I'd start a rolling thread. Maybe their already is one, but search is disabled so sorry. If there already is one, hopefully I can get a mod to lock this and I'll post on that one.

Mitch Murder has already released like a bunch of stuff... None of it seemed especially strong.

What I really like so far is Lazerhawk - Dreamrider
https://lazerhawk.bandcamp.com/album/dreamrider
https://open.spotify.com/album/5sE8JtVAJH23pYT4ZRAVwh[/url]

It's got your typical Vangelisish slower, emotive deep synth-pad stuff as well as faster toughd00d nightdriving type stuff. I think my favorite track on it is Hypnic. It has one track with vocals, Feel the Rush Tonight feat. Gunship, which is also really well done. I typically don't like tracks with vocals (cause they're usually boring and badly sung), but I did like that one, it's kinda emo. I'd describe it as emo-pop of the 00's mixed with OMD's tender/depressio songs. I imagine for many people that sounds like the worst thing ever, lol.

Clearly, feel free to post new stuff you like and are listening to!

This German website is pretty awesome for new discoveries, and g00gle tr4nslat3 does a pretty good job of turning it into English: [url]http://www.tl80s.de/[/ur;]

i need to get the gunship album.

they are supposedly making a follow up.

this stuff was the soundtrack to 2016 for me.

started off with perturbator of course, followed by his label mates : dynatron, tommy'86, gost, and dan terminus.

all of which is available : https://blood-music.bandcamp.com/music

then the other night i watched'it follows' with a fantastic soundtrack by disasterpeace :

I just bought the debut album by Into The Fire, a UK duo whose music is sort of synthwave crossed with postpunk (some very New Order-ish bass lines present) and early 80s UK pop.

some Italian postpunk/goth shit, I guess? the album is actually from 2016, but I don't think it's ever been mentioned on ilx. Mushy (aka Phantom Love, aka Valentina Fanigliulo) was once a member of this band and it seems like her music is slightly better known.

Drab Majesty
The Demonstration
(DAIS Records)
Release Date: 1/20/2017

http://www.metalnerd.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Drab-Majesty-3.jpg

http://drabmajesty.bandcamp.com/album/the-demonstration
http://open.spotify.com/album/2OjnZ8zI3lfjaOvi7xXAHP

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EaUhtqJ6DM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqn9fXzYWoo

Surprised this hasn't come up yet in the thread... As Brooklyn Vegan said when they premiered the album before it's late January release, "Drab Majesty started as the solo project of Andrew Clinco (aka Deb DeMure), who also drums in Marriages, but expanded into a duo in 2016 with Mona D. The Demonstration is their first album since then, and the followup to their 2015 debut Careless. It’s rooted almost exclusively in ’80s synth-goth (making for a good fit with Cold Cave) — you can hear a good amount of Robert Smith in Deb’s voice, but musically Drab Majesty are closer to like, Clan of Xymox (who they’e opened for), than The Cure. Drab Majesty may wear their influences on their sleeve, but they do this sound well and The Demonstration is pretty damn enjoyable."

I think it's quite good, very retro obviously, but a very enjoyable album including the four remixes that came on the CD.

From the 80s, so I guess it would be "wave" instead of "retrowave". I think this would sound good on a nightdriving playlist.

such a great great track by Yello.
one of my favourites.
as a teenager i used to blast this on headphones as loud as my ears would allow, late at night, in the dark.

Wolf and Raven : that one hits the spot.

not sure re the more goth stuff ..
i like the machine arcade graffix/synth soundtrack side of this.
which yes will become tiresome after a while,
but at the moment, its still very enjoyable.

well, temptation got the better of me i picked up the GUNSHIP cd today.
rather glad i did, nice to have this style of analogue synth stuff thats not brickwalled a la a lot of the GoST/perturbator material.
and according to the wiki page, its not soft synths, but the lads have a massive collection of original hardware ..
also, had no idea but they released the album on cassette with a c64 game on the other side.

i had never heard of outrun until this thread, and from a quick dig around, it appears to be very specific subgenre with narrow parameters both in sound and vision.

man all subgenres come with non-musical signifiers, some of which are really shitty. yeah you can judge synthwave by the crappy cover art memes just like you can judge disco by the bell-bottoms, and you're not wrong to do so, but sometimes enjoying music involves deliberately turning a blind eye to some of its worse non-musical signifiers.

this is it for me.

i know i will tire of it, but at the moment, it's pure ear candy.
that said, the releases on blood music are a step away from the outrun material, and often use different visual templates (mainly heavy metal espeically GoST/Perturbator)

I completely agree... Futureworld could easily be called a synthwave album.
And even Kavinsky was doing his thing before the genre really had a name.

I also would agree, there is no discourse needed. It's nostalgia fluff, mainly. It's about your futuristic muscle car and your homemade spaceship that really works and the first love your life that dumped you and that feeling you got when you read Neuromancer for the first time.

You could tie it into late stage capitalism and the crumbling legitimacy of neoliberalism and a desire to return to simpler, more clear-cut geopolitical narratives such as those of the 80s, but I think that's overthinking it!

"And even Kavinsky was doing his thing before the genre really had a name."

didn't click until this week that the genre name, outrun, was taken from kavinskys album.

that cant be something that happens too often i.e. a genre name lifted from an album name ?

this stuff feels like an outgrowth of chiptune stuff, maybe they grew tired of the limited sonic palette of chiptune stuff

yeah, saw that re foetus - no doubt at some point i will order the cd.

I'm listening to Timecop1983 - Lovers, Pt. 2 EP (more like a short album). It's a companion to the same kind of thing called Lovers, Pt. 1. which I guess I slept on...

It reminds me of FM-84 in a lot of ways - but also close to this thing I already said to describe something that also has the same ~vibes~ (in some respects):

I'd describe it as emo-pop of the 00's mixed with the instrumentation and arrangement of OMD's tender/depressio songs.

But more modulated, gated, and padded. Specifically the song, Girls (feat. Seawaves). It's a highlight of the release. Many of the vocals are really good but many of them I could do without, which seems to be what I think about a lot of synthwave vocal tracks. Projects in general seem to be improving in this area; groups are using more professional (or at least interesting) singers it seems. But also, there's plenty of tracks without vocals on this.

It might be my favorite s y n t h w a v e thing of the year so far!

i suspect that this whole thing will now dwindle away as there really has not been a definitive crossover act/album.
yeah, advertising execs will suck up a few of the crew, and there will be a lot of AV syncs that will hopefully pay the bills.
but as for a big album that blows the scene up, i think the moment has passed.

Advisory Circle - be seeing you

dont have spotify, but isn't Advisory Circle Jon Brooks (aka King of Woolworths) ?

oh, and that bundle I linked to recently, turns out it has Richard X involvement.
one of the albums is by Nina, and it has the Richard X produced track, Beyond Memory on it, which is very lovely electro-pop vs neon sunsets track.
also, the latest facexhugger album, 'sci-fi violence' is a massive step up in sound/production values, so he clearly has learnt a few tricks over the last year.
in fact, of what I have heard so far, (scandroid, gregorio franco, meteor, facexhugger, nina, cloud battalion), its a bloody cracking bundle, even better than the last one.
and there is more to be unlocked should things go to plan.
