Hello friends of A Different Drum! It has been a couple of weeks since my last update. I have some new arrivals in the store that I’d like to tell you about…
Haberdashery “Tonight the Angels” $14 — The new album from the romantic synthpop act Haberdashery is now available, and it comes in a truly beautiful package, hardbound with an extended booklet of lyrics and original notes from the songwriting process. It is totally classy and utterly collectible, and the best Haberdashery release yet! You can watch a video for one of the songs from the album and order the CD here :
Riccardo Campa “The Italian Way” $15 — Here is another new release for fans of old-school Italo Disco flavored synthpop, with an utterly retro feel. With 80’s flavored synths and beats accompanying the thickly accented vocals, it sounds like something pulled out of the European underground from 25 years ago. Watch a video for one of the songs from the album and order the CD here :
Tiziana Rivale “True” $20 — Speaking of 80’s underground Italo Disco, here is a new album from Tiziana Rivale who has 80’s roots as well. This new album is produced by Galaxy Hunter who has used her vocal talents before. So, it maintains their strong, danceable Italo disco synthpop sound with the vocal diva adding her pizazz to the mix. Watch the video preview for the album which presents many song snippets and order the CD here :
Various Artists “Blank & Jones Presents So80’s Volume 5″ (3CD) $30 — The amazing 80’s extended version collection that is being assembled by Blank & Jones keeps getting more and more impressive. This “So80’s ” series may eventually go down as the best, most extensive, original 80’s extended version CD collection in history. All I can say is, these producers know their stuff, and they keep pulling out some real gems. Sure, at this point many of the original long versions have shown up elsewhere, but to have them pulled together in a single location, along with some real rarities, plus a bonus disc of beat-mixed tracks for party purposes…this one is making a case for itself. Watch out “Best of Pop and Wave” you have a challenger! See the complete track list and order the fifth volume here :
Thanks for your support. Have a wonderful weekend!
