Hello friends of A Different Drum! It is time for an update, as I have added a few independent synthpop releases to the store inventory. Here’s what came in this week:
Moonlight Cove “Hearts of the World” $16 — A Different Drum introduced the VIP subscribers to Moonlight Cove with a limited edition release of their album “Orphans of the Storm” last year, and now the band is back with an even better follow-up album! Very catchy, very melodic, and very well-produced, you’ll enjoy this as one of the highlights of 2012 when it comes to synthpop. Listen to a sample and order the new CD here :
By the way, I see that Amazon has 1 copy of the “Orphans of the Storm” CD available to buy. You may want to snag that if you don’t have the first Moonlight Cove album.
Jens Bader “Total Eclipse” $16 — Few synthpop artists are as prolific as Jens Bader– he keeps cranking out the albums every year, and he continues to pull fun tunes and interesting lyrics out of his bag-of-tricks. You can listen to a sample and order his new CD here :
Haberdashery “The Raven” (limited CDR) $10 — This is a limited edition CD release from Haberdashery which comes in a very classy package (as usual). It features three versions of the complete Edgar Allan Poe poem “The Raven”. It is cool to hear the famous poem performed as a synthpop song, which you can hear while watching the classic artwork on the youtube video. You can order the limited CD here :
Dark Phenomenon “Disfavour” $18 — This Russian import comes from a new label that is devoted to bringing back a classic synthpop sound. Dark Phenomenon fits that sound and style rather nicely, as you can hear on the video that is posted here…where you can also order the CD :
Absent One “Places” $18 — This is the new offering from the dark synthpop act from Russia, Absent One. They have a lot of life videos on Youtube, but I couldn’t find a non-live sample for you to check out something from this album. There are male and female vocals combined with the electronic backdrop and semi-gothic mood. You can order the CD here :
Well, there are a few items for you to check out. Thanks for your support!
