FUTURE tease: 2/15/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 2/8/19

Starting last week’s episode, it’s no shock that Pet Shop Boys takes on modern technology:

I slipped in a Gary Numan triple play, with a Gary song, an homage track to Gary, and this cover of Gary by Poppy:

From the Sky High, soundtrack that just keeps giving, here’s Flashlight Brown covering English Beat:

M83 brings synthpop into the new millennium. The vocals are very Alan Parsons Project:

And as usual, Walk The Moon is infectious with a new one:

FUTURE tease: 2/8/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 2/1/19

On last week’s episode, I played some Muse, and if there’s a video with dancers that move like the nurses in Silent Hill, I’m so going to share it:

Christian Burns goes sexy on the video for “Bullet”, featuring Stefan Dabruck:

Speaking of sex, Kings of Leon is on fire with it:

May seem weird, but the kid show Yo Gabba Gabba featured appearances by loads of now wave artists, and even some 80s covers, including The Lady Tigra doing Debbie Deb’s freestyle classic:

And new millennium Blondie makes everything right with the world:

FUTURE tease: 2/1/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 1/25/19

It’s time to weather the weather here in New York as we dive frozen feet first into February, with my latest episode kicking off the new month.  But before we get to that, here’s a look back at some of the goodies I played on last week’s episode.

Datarock is back with a new album after virtually a decade, and this track is good and funky:

I’m feeling the music of VHS Collection. Sadly, most of their releases are digital only – no CDs for the old school crowd.

If you’re going to cover INXS, best to do it right…like The Last Danse did.

Kind of feels like Iggy Pop borrowed from Faith No More’s “We Care A Lot” on this one:

Yo Gabba Gabba is the new wave kid show of the new millennium. The Ting Tings is just one of many bands that have appeared on the show, and they cover Altered Images!

FUTURE tease: 1/25/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 1/18/19

On last week’s show I played this one from Vitamin C, which is on a very cool Disney movie soundtrack loaded with covers of 80s songs:

Caroline Rose just wants to have fun:

The Honorary Title taps into that 90s alternative sound:

Tanlines gets mellow:

And as always, New Found Glory delivers pop punk fun:

FUTURE tease: 1/18/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 1/11/19

Back to last week’s episode for a moment, with AFI getting dark:

Amazing to discover a new millennium rap/electro/rock act that taps a classic from the too overlooked 80s band Saga:

The sounds of The Protomen bring me back to the days of watching sci-fi and horror movies in the 80s:

Friends getting infectious with “Friend Crush”:

Can’t even express my feelings about Oberhofer in words:

Keuning doing The Cars sound while going totally 80s with the video:

FUTURE tease: 1/11/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 1/4/19

For the first episode of the new year, it just made sense to play The Rialto Burns covering this U2 classic:

Bananarama still bringing the dance beats in the new millennium:

Night Club gets into a cat fight in the video for “She Wants to Play With Fire”:

I can’t get enough of Powerman 5000 covering 80s songs:

Dragonette always satisfied my itch for that 80s sound:

FUTURE tease: 1/4/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 12/28/18 PLUS!

It was a busy week for me, with my regularly scheduled show and the New Year’s Eve Dance Party. So let’s take a little look back at each.

Started the 12/28/18 show with this cool cover of Cyndi Lauper by Gunship:

Passion Pit takes us back to 1985:

And Ssion always manages to be as awesomely odd as the 80s:

And the New Year’s Eve Dance Party was a nonstop mix of covers and remixes of 80s faves. For instance, BeatFreakz does a Rick James classic…while paying homage to Michael Jackson?

Supermode remixes Bronski Beat…a song that will forever remind me of the film Avenging Angel:

Wave goes rave when Benny Benassi remixes David Bowie:
