After the disappointing 'Night Drive' by Timecop1983, and the filler of The Midnights 'Kids', I was really worried about the Gunship album. Particularly after they released When You Grow Up, which... ugh. But it turns out, its not a bad album. Not a killer album, to be sure - but I've had it on repeat for several hours now (albeit skipping When You Grow Up each time), which is a definite mark of success. I'm quite fond of most of the tracks, and I'm particularly enjoying Black Blood Red Kiss and Time After Time (mind, I'm a sucker for any version of that song). A good range of styles and moods, though the singles released so far probably remain the highlights.

It's stopped me listening to Supernova by Morgan Willis anyway, which nothing else has managed, the last few weeks.

Thrasher is probably my favorite track off the new Gunship album

Everytime I try to fly I fall
Without my wings
I feel so small
Guess I need you baby...

It's been killing me since it came out, but Kids off the new Midnight album has the exact same riff as Bloc Party's "I Still Remember."

Okay gonna finally listen to new Gunship now, see ya.

It turns out it's MAN!

Saw Dance With The Dead last night, and I'm gonna go all "old man yells at cloud" and complain that the sound mix was way too bass heavy, and far far too loud, especially when Le Matos before them was near perfect. DWTD's tracks aren't really metal tracks, but when they play them live they just seem to disregard all the melodies in their songs and just try to destroy your ears instead. I don't Get It. Some songs were unrecognizable.

However the opening act was some guy performing live for the first time, and his poo poo was pretty good:

He did accidentally play the first couple seconds of the wrong track, twice, but that was just kinda funny

I recently put out an EP with a New Retro Wave feel to it. Reflections on Dreaming is a short EP created over Summer 2018 to capture the feel of some lucid dreams that I had. I find New Song 2 (Unamed) has a melancholic vaporwave feel to it, whereas the other three tracks are more upbeat.

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.

and they're coming to Portland in a month, huh?

If there are any XCOM fans here, they just released a remastered OST of the original games and it is pretty amazing:

Life would be simple in the forest except for Cyril Sneer. And his life would be simple except for The Raccoons.

Saw FM-84 last night. I'd listened to their stuff on Spotify and mentally categorized them as yet another unremarkable, same-soundy, synthwave act but they were actually great live and their stuff sounded much better. Ended up picking up a signed vinyl album.
