FUTURE tease: 6/22/18 – FLASHBACK recap: 6/15/18

The recap of last week’s episode begins with some throbbing club beats from Trust:

A little throwback to Duran Duran’s biggest track of the new millennium so far:

A special treat in this episode was this ultimate mashup:

This one from Charli XCX gives me good vibes:

This Foals track makes me want to go driving with the windows down:

And Brendan Maclean being weird and fun as always:

FUTURE tease: 6/15/18 – FLASHBACK recap: 6/8/18

Starting off the flashback to last week’s show, Klaxons bring back the 80s vibe with a club scene drenched in neon:

There’s a more upbeat video for this song, but I prefer this one because Juiceboxxx looks kind of like a zombie:

As usual, Blondie is too cool:

Blossoms breaks out the dance moves!

Boulevards having fun covering Eddie Murphy:

And rockers Lillix sizzles with electro beats:

FUTURE tease: 6/8/18 – FLASHBACK recap: 6/1/18

So many goodies on last week’s show I don’t know how to narrow it down. Let’s start with the first track I played, because Dillon Francis teamed up with one of my faves, The Chain Gang of 1974…and because I’m all about music videos with adults acting like children:

Shakespear’s Sister still waving after all these years, and the breakaway 1/3 of Bananarama is edgier than they’ve been in years:

But I’m still a sucker for the polished look and sound of the Rama, bringing the ABBA drama with this one:

Love this mellow track from Fazerdaze. Her voice is very 90s alternative:

Gary Numan has been doing so much recording lately it’s hard to keep up. Here he is sounding totally now wave with Jean-Michel Jarre:

FUTURE tease: 6/1/18 – FLASHBACK recap: 5/25/18

Just realizing I played a lot of covers on the May 25th episode, and they were so cool I’m sharing most of them in this flashback.

First up, Kian Egan of the boy band Westlife kind of went country as a solo artist, but he rox a Bryan Adams classic on the Sounds of the 80s CD:

When two 80s synth acts come together to cover AC/DC, you know I’m going to play it:

I just love Freezepop:

Don’t understand why Brandon Flowers of The Killers didn’t appear in his own music video. He would have rocked those shorts:

I just had to play the nTTx take 0n a Survivor classic:

FUTURE tease: 5/25/18 – FLASHBACK recap: 5/18/18

Some fun from last week’s show. I started the episode off with this M83 track, which has a video right out of Xanadu. Well, sort of…

The New Pornographers flirt with sexuality (shocker):

Just a great song by Middle Kids:

Fun power pop from The Rifles:

And Kylie does Kim.

May 11, 2018 episode highlights – May 18, 2018 teased

What to visualize from last week’s episode? How about Morrissey looking like everyone’s old gay uncle at wedding? (oh crap…I could be that old gay uncle):

I so wish there was a video for this one from All Time Low with Tegan & Sara. This one kind of plays the same emotional strings as “Human” by Human League.

Ah, The Galvatrons…I like to refer to their music as regressive rock…

Combine dark wave with a horror video, and I’m there. Plus, how often do you see Ron Jeremy in a Jyrki 69 video? Okay, that sounds like a trick question…

May 4, 2018 episode highlights – May 11, 2018 teased

Just as I started the show, going to start my look back at last week’s episode with new millennium music from Limahl:

This goodie is from the new album by The Slow Readers Club:

A change in sound and look for James Bay, and I’m feeling both:

Another offshoot band of The Strokes. This track reminds me of that time Jeff Lynne of ELO teamed up with Dave Edmunds in the 80s.

Just seems to me some of the really fun songs by Maroon 5 never get released as singles these days, so I play them on my show…and then look for accompanying fan-made videos that are filled with sexy images of Adam and pretend the rest of the band doesn’t exist.

And what would the world of modern wave be without Ladyhawke:
