A Different Drum Update - March 25th, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — Todd @ 9:13 pm

Well, we’re almost to the end of March already.  It seems time is flying by so much more quickly than it used to.

There are a couple new releases in A Different Drum’s store that I want to tell you about.


Hurts “Exile” $24 — I absolutely loved the first album by Hurts, discovering a band that could not only pack an electronic pop album full of emotion, but seemed able to make every song into a single-worthy pop anthem.  Their new album still has some of the emotion and drama, but also has more of an edge than the first.  You can listen to an album preview and order the German import of the limited edition (features a bonus DVD and extra songs) right here :

Space March “Mountain King” $15 — It seems we barely had a new album from Australia’s synthpop act, Space March, yet here is a new one with fresh, new songs.  The title track plays with some of the tune from the popular classical tune, “In the Hall of the Mountain King” and I liked the way it turned out.  I remember that Erasure did an instrumental synthpop version of that old tune many years ago.  Anyway, you can order the new album here :


I’ve been focusing on some 25-CD box lots on EBay the last couple of weeks.  There are currently three listed, and I’ll list some more when these are done.  The lots are not 100% synthpop, but they tend to be about half synthpop, and they’ve been going for about $10 lately, which makes them an extremely good deal (free shipping only in the USA).   So, check them out and maybe you’ll find a great deal– even if you only like 4 or 5 CD’s in the bunch, you’ll be getting a steal on them!
