Synth Stuff

Trigger warning: if you listened to and liked hair bands and metal, and still think classic rock is awesome, then this post will offend your head banging sensitivities.

I listened to an obscene amount of synth pop and post-punk techno in the 80’s. I still listen to most of the old shit, but I’ve discovered modern synth bands (around ten years ago) and love listening to them because their melodies take me back to my youth.

White Lies is the most pop-oriented, while Digitalism is pure club. Crystal Castles has an occasional song that doesn’t suck without a remix, but the purer synth bands like Virginia Wing, Au Revoir Simone, the Chromatics, the Actor, Morthem Vlade Art, and Laudanum, these bands are all responsible for my latest earworms.
