Fucking great band from Northampton, MA. Felt nervous about putting any genre or sound descriptors in the thread title, because so many tags that pop up - 'darkwave,' 'coldwave,' 'minimal wave' - really make me suspicious. but this album is awesome. propulsive ambient goth new wave music? RIYL New Order, Whitehouse, Gary Numan, Soft Cell, Bauhaus, Laurie Anderson.

I haven't listened to this album all the way through yet but their earlier material is great.

I like "Come Closer". Good enough to dance to, but nothing tops "Modulations", which is way out there. Still love her horny vampire schtick.

Her voice totally does it for me but I wouldn't mind a bit more timbral variety and less nostalgia worship. Still, good stuff.

something about the intro on 'LA' gives me a late 80s New Order vibe

I listened to them so much I got tired of them, but their latest single is with Mariana SaldaƱa of BOAN, whose ep from some years ago was awesome.
