All dark wave, cold wave, post-punk, deathrock, goth, noise rock show.
THIS COLD NIGHT (Austin)
— Like the name of the album Black Cherry, a tart and sweet concoction of guitar and synth, incredibly emotionally nostalgic for 80's era dance-floor and cold wave.
TRISTESSE LOYAL (Germany)
— Languid German vocalist dripping disdain on electronic effects and beat; and super catchy to boot.
LAS ERAS (Buenos Aires)
— Bass-heavy, depressive side of pop ala New Order style. I liked the touch of early industrial in the following song.
DEE BEE RICH (Germany)
— You know Berlin has it going on, their music follows no pattern which means the scene is truly independent and vibrant and inspirational. A fun jangling noise trip. These guys are hip.
EDWARD KA-SPEL (London)
— Legendary Edward with his poetry.
— A touch of emo-punk vocals with melodic-driven guitars.
CAUSA DE MUERTE (Chile)
— Female-fronted goth singing in Spanish. Sad face and shit, band recently no longer together.
THE WRAITH (LA)
Of the Earth
— Must be in the LA water. Deathrock rockin' goth through the veins, the vocalist reminded me of Mission UK.
STATIC PALM (London)
— My favorite type: sexy, danceable, darkly throbbing electronic with vivid threads of melodic synth and heavy bass. English men know how to do it.
— Siouxsie-sharp vocals singing in incredibly dense, guitar-driven, emotional and sweet compositions held tightly within dark lyrics.
PLEASURE POLICY (CA)
Thousand Years of Tears
— Deeply baritone is always the vocal of a vampire.
SINDICATO VERTICAL (Spain)
— "You fucking lie." The lead singer is super charismatic; talking, muttering, shouting, singing, yelling. Everything I want from a man.
— Australian punk and deathrock led by a steel-edged female vocalist ala early Courtney Love.
CLOSED MOUTH (France)
— Prolific dark alternative band, creeping a spider dance across a gloomy ocean.
Lickspittle (A Nut In The Paste)
— A theatrical poetic symphony of instrumentation. Whimsical noise alternative, wholly unique.
