We have a quite non-melodic focus here on this music blog. We like the dark, non-vocal, deep and clubby vibes here. Synthwave is our excuse to break out of that pattern and salute the overly melodic creations. Continue reading Synthwave Tuesday: Three for the melodies
I’m not much for looking back. It’s just not in me. I don’t seek backwards to discover unheard tracks and artists.

This track made me realise how much I miss the original Twin Peaks soundtrack, and that absolutely stunning vocals in “Falling”.

Synthwave: Here’s two tracks who’s got a lot in common, so let’s make it a double feature! Continue reading Double Feature: Ice Bunny, “Showgirl” and Ophir Berns, “Life Line”
