Happy New Year! And welcome to the last update from A Different Drum for 2011!
I know you’ve all been very busy with the holidays, as have I. I’m going to use this update to mention a pile of recent releases that have come into A Different Drum’s store. I decided to sweep through a bunch of cool synthpop releases that came out recently but were slow to get here for different reasons. Hopefully this will help wrap up the synthpop year for you.
I don’t have time right now to walk through each release, since I have to go to my other job in a few minute (yep, working on New Year’s Eve). But I did put video clips with most of these new releases so you can listen to them and decide what you like. You’ll recognize several of the artists, like Endanger, Foretaste, IAMX, or Rational Youth. Here are the titles newly added to A Different Drum’s store for you to order:
