New Music

Some CDs just arrived in the mail on Saturday. I also purchased a few at HMV that day too.

I have only heard a little. I have expectations.

1. 'Exaltation of Larks' - Dot Allison
She's apparently gone folk. She was wonderful when she was with One Dove. I am not hopeful, I don't like folk. One Dove was electronic.

2. 'Back to Life' - Sandra
Not a Michael Cretu production. Not eurodisco either. It features one single with Thomas Anders of Modern Talking. I am not hopeful. It's probably going to sound a lot like many other divas out there.

3. 'Entertainment' - Fischerspooner
I have no idea what to expect. Probably something like the first two albums? If it were, I would be happy.

4. 'Rest' - Disreflect
I just heard the club mix. Down tempo, moody, German synthpop. Not bad.
5. 'Momentum' - Frozen Plasma
German ebm. I heard less than five minutes. Very very promising.

6. 'Of Faith, Power and Glory' - VNV Nation
I haven't heard good things about this. The last album had two tremendous songs but the rest of the album was lacklustre. This one? Well, I heard about a minute. Oh-oh.. I am fearing for the worst. We'll see.

7. 'Emily' - Clan of Xymox
Great single! Now, are the remixes any good?

8. 'In Love we trust' - Clan of Xymox
Splendid lead single 'Emily'. I don't know about the album.

9. 'Antidote' - Neuroactive
I heard the first track. Downtempo. Not too bad. The last few albums were 120 bpm and above affairs. This one probably isn't. Not as robotic I suspect but I like robotic!

Wow, you have a very unique taste bro. I have not heard any of those before! Or just me.

Thanks for the list. I will try to check out if I could download from Nokia. Maybe some of them are my cup of tea too!

The one good track from the new Xymox album, besides Emily which is excellent is Home Sweet Home. The rest not so much.

Check out a band called "Telepathe." Their debut album "Mother Dance" is superb (in my opinion) and have been listening to it a lot. I find their new single "So Fine" to be very addictive.

Ahhh.. Thanks V. I will go check that out.

Wilfrid, the list is quite varied. From ebm to folk to goth.
