Fear is the glue that holds society together. It's what makes people suppress their worst impulses. Fear is power.

And at the end of fear, oblivion.

I saw The Midnight a few weeks ago. They played neither American Online nor Memories, which are basically their best songs.
I don't generally listen to America Online. It's...there? It's okay, I guess?

And better than Sunset, Los Angeles, Gloria, Shadows, Lost Boy, Wave, Jason, Comeback Kid, or Days of Thunder?

That's a hell of a take.

I didn't notice that GosT had another album out this year, and, I dunno I'm kind of vexed by GosT. Anything he does that's synthy is the kind of synth I really like, just really warm, filthy noise. And then lately he'll throw a few tracks of the weirdest screamiest shrieky metal songs that go nowhere and do nothing for me. It's almost the kind of thing that maybe should be done under a different name or altogether somewhere

The human animal is a beautiful and terrible creature, capable of limitless compassion and unfathomable cruelty.

I adored Possessor as this amazing and menacing fusion of synthwave, black/doom metal, and even 80s goth, but the new album is just too much like conventional metal for me. Oh well, there's still literally everything else he's made.

Clapping Larry

Yeah the new one by him did nothing for me, apparently it's gone from one guy to two guys making the music?

Agree that having this album under a different artist would have made sense to me, I can see a bit of progression to this style with parts of Possessor but definitely going for a different audience than his first two albums at least.

Kinda deflated the gunship dark all day album for me too, having three of the most unique songs off the album as way early singles. Of the songs left, too many were underwhelming or not my cup of tea, so the album release felt kinda weak after the hype.

It's a fine album, just well short of their first.

Listened to the first half of the new magic sword...they really like that daft punk kinda sound don't they? It's cool, just didn't blow my mind. Colossus is still the best track.

The new Magic Sword gave me a lot of Birdy Nam Nam vibes at times (specifically from Manual for Succesful Rioting) instead of Daft Punk, really.

So Power Glove dropped that "Throwback" EP.

The good: Hunters is finally out in some official form! So is Vengeance!

The bad: THEY TOOK OUT THE COOL INTRO FROM VENGEANCE, THE FUCKERS

e: also, I'm really, really not feeling the new Magic Sword. the disco thing is cool in theory but clashes with basically everything I liked about their previous sound. Colossus is a rad loving track and I like Reborn okay enough, but Awakening just outright sucks rear end and I'm not really feeling Lady of Light at all, and the rest of the album is literal filler.

this def has potential. kudos on your first song, that's killer!

critique:
that drum roll/fill thing you do on transitions is over-used. try some different fills to add variety, or no drumfill at all and use another instrument to transition- some midnight jams incorporate that well. also the piano lines during the pauses could use some increased complexity to make it more interesting

praise:
you have the basics down well and the song overall is well put together minus the above comments. work on the EQ and add some dynamic poo poo to keep it from becoming too "droney"

Thanks! I've progressed a bit since I made that one and am currently deep in trying to learn about sound design, layering, and eq so I can get my mixes sounding better. I've got another song I like even better, but I'm not ready to share it yet.

I haven't been getting into new synth stuff that much lately, but Ferus Melek's new album We Don't Belong Here from this year is pretty fuckin' good

A bit before that I also discovered last year's Invaders from Hollywood Burns and it's loving FIRE.
One of the YT comments just says "Dance with the Brut" and I think that's a pretty good summary, really, though in addition there's also some orchestral soundtrack flair thrown in for good measure.

If we're just sharing our favorite songs, I'm completely obsessed with this one, from an Australian guy named Beau McKee/DELOS:

DELOS - Trace Decay

Sadly as far as I can tell he's only made those 4 synthwave songs :/

A few others that are real good:

ZETA - The Distance

Color Theory - Phobiac
