April 20, 2018 episode highlights – April 27, 2018 teased

First up from last week’s episode, it’s awesomely 80s music from The Ting Tings.

Even more 80s than The Ting Tings, Kid Kasio.

Getting some guitar into the mix, this is a great one from Embrace.

And something recent by Monico Blonde.

April 13, 2018 episode highlights – April 20, 2018 teased

Starting off the nod to songs from last week’s episode with The Aces. I swear I see some Heathers in this video…

This video from The Neighbourhood makes me miss the 80s, when, as I always say, EVERY video looked like a horror movie.

Future Islands because I could watch singer Gerrit Welmers all day. Yes, even jogging.

Eliot Sumner because she’s amazing…and she does that thing with her mouth when she sings, like her dad, Sting.

And finally, Kitten because the new song is so much fun and there’s so much eye shadow in the video:

April 6, 2018 episode highlights – April 13, 2018 teased

I had to start the April 6th episode off with something new and amazing by The Motels. It’s like the 80s all over again.

The Young Professionals covering Lorde is too fun:

Jeffree Star is too sexy sleazy, giving me a modern day Dead or Alive vibe…

Black Kids were born in the wrong era:

And I need  a full album from Pale Waves like immediately:

March 30, 2018 episode highlights – April 6, 2018 teased

Last week was the “We Make Record, We Make Remix” episode, sort of a double play episode of artists doing their own songs then remixing other tracks into now wave perfection. Some of the goodies included:

Machinsta remixing Vogon Poetry is like a slice of Vince Clarke’s Depeche Mode:

The Teenagers take me back to the sounds of the early 1980s:

And finally, one of the double plays was from Scissor Sisters, so here’s Jake Shears looking like a naughty boy while performing “Skin Tight” live, then the remix of “Good Boys”:

Combine a great power pop song with a music video featuring a dog and naturally I have to play the track on my show, so We Are Scientists landed on my March 23rd episode with this one:

More rockin’ fun with Yungblud:

Spoons still keeps the 80s vibe 30 years later with “You Light Up”:

And St. Vincent gets colorful:

Although it was only the March 16th show off, I had to start it off with April Towers, because they sound totally 80s!

The Natives are so power pop jangly catchy.

Archway Towers covering The Smiths.

The Wayfarers know how to do a party song…and video.

Some of the highlights from last week’s episode include this one from Magic Man, which has a very…American video:

Okay, more America in this video for the rockin’ White Reaper track “Judy French”:

Great song from Twin Wild:

Love this mellow wave track from Kate Pierson:

Franz Ferdinand and Sparks team up to create new wave awesomeness:

And when he’s not stroking with the band, Albert Hammond, Jr. is stroking solo:
