FUTURE tease: 5/24/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 5/17/19

I started last week’s show with some Northern Kind–and the kind of synth riff I can never get enough of. So 80s:

As the show unfolded, I realized I really can’t get enough synthwave, because there was plenty of it, like “Ways to an End” by Mirrors:

Placebo gives a fresh now wave take on my favorite Robert Palmer new wave track:

Bananarama just keeps going, and I love this one from their new album:

And Craft Spells mesmerizes with “Leave My Shadow”:

I’m always up for a good remix of an 80s classic, and Matt Pop always does the songs justice, as with this remix of an Erasure album cut:

The Sounds are one of my faves of the new millennium.

The Naked and Famous, awesome as usual with “The Runners”:

And Lillies and Remains covers The Smiths:

Last week’s show had a bunch of goodies that sounded straight out of the 80s, like this one from The Limousines:

The New Pornographers gave us War On The East Coast”:

Joan Jett never loses her sound:

Ou Est Le Swimming Pool–a band name so long there’s nothing more to say:

Great song from Ms Mr, but I can’t handle the oozing food on flesh in the video!

And Pale Waves should be huge with their infectious throwback sound:

Started last week’s show with this one that I’m obsessed with from Meg Myers. I sure would like to see a video for “Little Black Death”.

I do believe this one from Isaac Junkie samples the rhythm track from the You Can Dance album remix of Madonna’s “Into the Groove”.

Some electronic dance music from Lauren Rocket:

Devo hasn’t missed a beat since the 80s:

And Juiceboxxx captures the sound of the 1990s alternative scene:

Last week I was more than happy to start the show with something new from White Lies:

I’m always up for a song about New York, like this one from The Heroic Enthusiasts:

I’m hooked on the infectious darkness of this one from Manic Street Preachers:

This video by Matisse reminds me of a 1970s horror flick:

Fujiya & Miyagi sounding so 80s dark on this one:

FUTURE tease: 4/19/19 – FLASHBACK recap: 4/12/19

I started last week’s show off with an energetic goodie from The Good Natured:

A fricking dirt bike music video from Generationals…which brings me back to my childhood, when I’d cry all day at my dad’s bike races because I wanted to be at home listening to records…

Love this video from Rockets in a Coma–pretty girl abducts pretty boy:

I live for this electro cover of The Cure from Dead Sexy, Inc. Okay, I just live for their name…

Last week I played Wang Chung’s redo of “Dance Hall Days” with an orchestra. This seems to be a trend with 80s new wave bands, but basically all they’re doing is replacing the string sound of a keyboard with actual strings!

PVRIS makes some catchy alternative, like “Anyone Else”:

\

Wolf Alice gets light and airy with “Freazy”:

I hear some Visage in this one from the most recent version of the ever changing Boytronic:
