Albums, singles, and playlists I am currently listening to

This week I have been gearing up for my annual best of list and a review of the year (which ever I choose to do first). The way I go about putting my list together, I like to try to listen to all the music I am aware of with a heavy emphasis on TRY. Unfortunately I didn't get very far after hearing the new albums by T.O.Y. and X-Marks The Pedwalk. I have been listening to their albums a lot. It goes without saying that I really liked Secrets and Pain is Love a lot.

I didn't listen to a lot of my playlists this week because I spent most of this week listening to the new T.O.Y. and X-Marks The Pedwalk albums. I have been listening a lot to my revamped Autumn playlist. Very glad I was able to find their single "The Fall" on Spotify. I also have been listening a lot to my updated Futurepop playlist.

I hope to get my best of 2017 list posted either sometime during the three day holiday weekend. I will either have it posted tomorrow or Monday.

My Current favorite songs of the week

Here is the last playlist of my favorite songs for 2017. Ha! Unlike last week's playlist, I made a more of a concerted effort to include more current music. I have included a song from the excellent Guillermo Del Toro film The Shape of Water along with new songs by Artesia, Diary of Dreams, X-Marks the Pedwalk, T.O.Y., and Cosmic Armchair.

My top two favorite songs on the playlist are by X-Marks the Pedwalk and T.O.Y. from the new albums. I have been obsessed with their new albums for the past three days.  It is a good thing I had not written my best of 2017 list yet. Secrets and Pain in Love are some of the best music I have heard in 2017. I can't help but notice how much T.O.Y. sounds like De/Vision, Beborn Beton, and Camouflage but I love the similarities. Gotta listen to their other albums, same with X-Marks the Pedwalk.

I have been on a massive Marsheaux kick lately with the playlist I had created not long ago. The band does some really great covers. One of my favorite covers they do is "Popcorn" which I have included on this week's playlist. Their version is my personal favorite in a sea of "Popcorn" covers.

I didn't realize until the other day that the song "Before and After" by Autumn off their new single "The Fall" was an old unreleased song. I found the song on youtube from several years ago. It is a beautiful song. I have been listening to that particular track off the band's new single quite a bit, along with "Lullaby For Marguerite" from Return to the Breath.

If you haven't heard of the Singapore synthpop band Cosmic Armchair, I really recommend giving them a listen. Their new album Contact has been getting lots of airtime with me. I also recommend the new Artesia EP En cette fin de jour.

It has been awhile but I have just started listening to Diary of Dreams latest album Hell in Eden. I kinda forgot about it amongst all the other music I have been inundated with. I like the album but I have to be in the mood to listen to it.

As I have mentioned numerous time here on my blog, 2017 has not been a very good for me in my personal life. Songs like VNV Nation's "Sentinel" and Bow Ever Down's "Believe" has really resonated with me in the past couple of weeks.Their lyrics has been helping me come out of that deep, dark rabbit hole I had fallen in over the summer (beginning with the hit and run incident). I still have a ways to go to get back to normalcy but at least a lot of the anger I have felt for a long time because of the trauma I have experienced over the last several months  has started to dissipate.

"Elisa's Theme" from The Shape of Water is my favorite track off the soundtrack. The film is wonderful. I absolutely loved it. Another home run from Guillermo Del Toro. If you can, go see the film. The film is currently playing at the Edina Theatre  here in Minneapolis.

Albums of the week

I think this is like my second or third time I have posted more than one album for my Album of the Week blog posts but I just could not pick one of the two albums because they are so damn good.

Earlier this week, I came across a blog from one of the synthpop related pages I follow, it might have been Modern Synthpop FB page with a link to its blog featuring its best of 2017 picks. I quickly scanned the link and saw some interesting music I thought I should check out. The first was Pain is Love by T.O.Y. (I think it was mentioned as a comment by a reader) and the other was Secrets by X-Marks the Pedwalk. There were a few other albums mentioned but after listening to them, I really wasn't impressed.

I don't know why I never heard of T.O.Y. but this was the first time I had heard of the band. X-Marks the Pedwalk is another story. I had heard of the band and a couple of tracks here and there but never really batted an eye in their direction. Considering the fact that I hadn't heard a lot of synthpop music this year asides from the new albums by Namnambulu and Felix Marc, I decided to give Secrets and Pain is Love. This was on Tuesday and since then I have been listening to both albums quite a bit. Do not be surprised if you see these albums on my best of 2017 list when I post it sometime this weekend.

Earworm of the week

Today I was listening to my updated playlist of my favorite futurepop songs when I came across this oldie but goodie "Refuge" by Client off their 2014 release Authority featuring then new singer Nicole Thomas (aka Client N). After three years since I first heard the song, "Refuge" still sounds great. If you haven't heard this song before, go listen to it now.

Playlist of the week

I have so neglected my futurepop playlist for too long. I apologize to anyone who follows this playlist on Spotify. I have been so focused on other playlists that I have forgotten about this one. My bad. I have been meaning update it with some different and/or new tracks, and will try to keep it updated on a fairly regular basis.

Thanks to a synthpop related Facebook page I follow, I discovered that X-Marks the Pedwalk and T.O.Y. have put out new albums out. I had to throw a song by each of the band on my updated playlist. Their new albums Secrets and Pain is Love are absolutely fantastic. I have listened to their albums again after work. I certainly can say both albums will end up on my annual end of the year Best of list. I haven't heard much synthpop music this year to be honest (asides from Namnambulu and Felix Marc) so to hear more synthpop before the year comes to a close (not soon enough for me thank you very much).

Awhile back I came across a new track by Solitary Experiments "I Am" from the latest Electrostorm compilation on Out of Line Records. I have yet to hear a single song by SE that I didn't like.

I had to throw in the Broken Remix of "The Fall" by Autumn (US Band).  William Faith of  The Bellwether Syndicate/Faith and The Muse. Who would have thought the band's brand of darkwave could translate so well as a dance track? I was so not expecting this remix when I downloaded "The Fall" back on Halloween. Normally I do hate surprises but in this case with "The Fall (Broken Remix)", this surprise is a very good thing.

Another surprise this year I wasn't expecting was the new Grendel album . I am so used to the harsh vocals on previous albums, and was expecting more of the same on the new album Age of the Disposable Body. Much to my surprise, the vocals on Age of the Disposable Body was anything but harsh. I still like harsh EBM but after awhile the music gets repetitive so I am glad that Grendel decided to go in another direction. My current favorite track is "Flux".

I have also thrown in new tracks by Blume, Cosmic Armchair, and Kirlian Camera but I have also thrown in some old faves of mine.

Albums and playlists I am currently listening to

I will be honest I haven't listened to much music this week because I did quite a bit of binge listening to my favorite true crime podcast Casefiles. What I did listen to were mostly playlists. I recently did a do over on both my Autumn and Loreena McKennitt playlists.

My current favorite songs of the week

I am just going to let the music speak for itself. It has been a long work for me this week. I am rather dead tired to really get into this week's collection of tunes I have been enjoying. Most of the songs are older tunes but I have thrown in a couple of new tracks by Autumn and Cosmic Armchair.  Enjoy!

My Year in Photos 2017

While 2017 hasn't been a great year for me in general, music wise it has been quite good although I did have to take some time off from the scene (and skip the VNV Nation show) to grieve after my father passed away this summer. Here are some of my favorite photos from the shows I have attended this year. I will let them speak for themselves.  I have to admit the PIG show was the highlight of my year since I finally got to meet an idol of mine...Raymond Watts.

Earworm of the week

Yesterday before work I quickly threw together a playlist of my favorite Marsheaux songs. I have been listening to the playlist quite a bit since I created it. Marsheaux has been a long time favorite band of mine for nearly a decade. I discovered their music either on Facebook or youtube. I can't remember which site since it was so long ago. One of my personal favorite songs by the band is their cover of When in Rome's "Promise". I will let the song speak for itself. It is so good.

Favorite singles of 2017

This is a first for me. I am actually posting my favorite singles for the year. Generally I don't cover singles at the end of the year because a lot of artists I listen to do not release singles. This year is an exception but I do think this has to do with the fact that bands like Autumn (US band) and Kirlian Camera has new music coming out in the new year which I am super excited about. I hope the same can be said about the synthpop band Blume.

This list may not be seem a lot but for me it is ;). For me the new Kirlian Camera single "Sky Collapse" and the much anticipated new single "The Fall" by Autumn are my favorite singles of 2017. I especially love the new Autumn single. After a lengthy break, the band released new music this past October. I was not disappointed one bit. I was really surprised by the remix that William Faith of The Bellwether Syndicate/Faith and The Muse did which gave the band a completely new sound. The new Kirlian Camera single "Sky Collapse" has really made me excited for new music since they are one of my personal favorite bands in the past decade. I love that Eskil of Covenant is sharing vocals with Elena Alice Fossi.

I certainly wasn't expecting Loreena McKennitt to drop a new song this year. The song may not be as memorable as "All Souls Night", "Mummers Dance", or "The Mystic's Dream" but it is still a lovely song. Loreena could sing the phone book and I would still listen to her.

I have been a huge Blume fan for several years now and have come to expect a certain sound with every release the band put out. I was totally surprised by their new single "Blackening". It is a completely different sound but I appreciate the fact that the band chose to broaden their horizons and take their music in a different direction. If you like Assemblage 23 and Ruined Conflict, check out the new Blume single.

One of my newest discoveries this year was the artist Nahko. His solo album My Name is Bear is a fantastic folk/rock/pop album. I also love his work with his band Medicine for the People. "Dragonfly" is his first single off his My Name is Bear as well as my current favorite song from the album.

My favorite playlists of 2017

Up until 2017 I really wasn't into making playlists. Since signing up with Spotify, I listened mostly to albums in their entirety. I made some playlists here and there. This year I really started getting to making playlists when I originally created a Work Playlist which quickly lead into my Random Mix playlists which consists of my favorite songs from the past and present, and from all types of musical genres including pop and country. I thought with the year winding down, I would post my favorite playlists of 2017. I decided to leave off my Random Mix playlists because it would have been pretty obvious.

On the weekends, I will listen to this playlist when I go to bed. I also will listen to it on rainy days or just to chill out to.


Sometimes at work I am just in the mood for music that is super cheesy and not. I have to admit I will always have a soft spot for cheesy europop from the '90s. This playlist brings back memories of my nights at Metropolis nightclub in Milwaukee, WI (which no longer exists).


Love me some '80s music. Of course there is so much music during that decade, I had to create a second playlist. The first consists of new wave while the second playlist consists of new wave, rock, hair metal, and pop. The second playlist is more diverse.




I won't lie, Blutengel's music in recent years hasn't floated my boat. Their last two studio albums hasn't impressed me at all. I created this playlist to feature all of my favorite Blutengel tracks.


Ever since I discovered Nahko, I have been listening a lot to his solo album and his work with Medicine for the People. I hate saying this but On the Verge is my least favorite album by Nahko and Medicine for the People so I left it off this playlist.


I recently redid my Autumn playlist because I wanted to include their new single "The Fall".


Other faves includes:










I certainly do have eclectic tastes in music. It varies on my mood.

Music I bought in 2017

I can hardly believe the year is almost over and for me, I will be relieved when it is over. I just want to start the new year with a fresh outlook. I had enough of being angry and depressed 24/7.  Asides from my shitty year personal-wise, music wise it has been a great year. I bought some interesting music in 2017. I will say that my music consumption is not what it used to be since I started to invest my money into tattoos and trips to Chicago, not to mention I stream a lot of my music via Spotify. Streaming has effected my music consumption immensely but I do not like wasting money on mediocre music (like The Raveonettes' 2016 Atomized which I did not like). Nahko's My Name is Bear is the only album I bought this year on a whim and not knowing his music, and actually enjoying the entire album. Asides from the mishap over the medicore Raveonettes album, I would say my music purchases have been worth every single penny.

To say I am a  fan of The Hating Tree by Autumn is putting mildly. It has become one of my favorite albums of all time. Believe it or not I have three versions of it, CD copy, 2 digital copies (the original and the 20th anniversary edition found on the band's bandcamp page https://autumn-us.bandcamp.com/album/the-hating-tree-20th-anniversary-edition. Whenever I am out and about in the cities, I like to listen to music via google play on my phone so of course that had to be one of those albums I need to listen to on my weekend errands. The same can be said about Namnambulu's album Borders.

So here is my list of music I bought this year which ended up being a total of $333.80. In the past years, I would spend over $1,000 a year on music. It is amazing how much streaming has effected my music listening habits and purchases. I am trying to make a concerted effort to put my money where my mouth is when it comes to music but as someone who enjoys the occasional trip to Chicago or a local tattoo shop, it is difficult. Also 2017 has been a difficult year for me personally so that has played somewhat of a role as well.

My current favorite songs of the week

Last night I wasn't in the best of moods hence no blog entry. Most of the songs this week consists of older tunes.

The closer it is to Christmas, I find listening to a lot of Christmas music difficult to listen to after my father passed away this year. What little I can enjoy are the Christmas albums by Lindsey Stirling and Tarja. It is difficult for me to get into the holiday spirit after the crap I went through this year. So I got a couple of songs from their albums on this week's playlist.

I have been listening a lot to my Nahko/Nahko and Medicine for the People playlist I created earlier this week. I love Nahko's solo album and the work he does with Medicine for the People. I have been finding great comfort in Nahko's music when my mood goes downhill which has been a lot lately since this is my first Christmas without my dad.

If you haven't heard the new Sixth June album Virgo Rising, you should now. I admit I have neglected the album for some time now until this week. I don't listen to a lot of coldwave music but I do with Sixth June. I discovered them either on Youtube or Bandcamp (I forgot which).  Anyways, go check them out. Their song "Call Me" is off their new album.

Now that the Covenant show in April has been announced, I have been listening to the band's music. I really want to like The Blinding Dark but I just can't. It is so dull but there are a few tracks I like on it (i.e "Dies Irae"). Just wish all the songs didn't sound the same. Nevertheless I am super excited for the Covenant show in April. Just wish it wasn't so close to my trip to Chicago and when I get back.

I don't know why I haven't listened to Visions of Atlantis before I really like what I am hearing. I started listening to VOA this week because of the members of Exit Eden sings in VOA. VOA reminds me quite a bit of Amaranthe.

I didn't realize that Solitary Experiments has a new song out (via Electrostorm 8 compilation) called "I Am". I came across it on Youtube. Absolutely love it.

I only have listened to the new album by  The Frozen Autumn a couple of times this week but I am digging it. "Tomorrow's Life" is my current favorite song.

Here are all the bands I have listened to and loved in 2017. It has been a long day for me. I had to go to the dentist after work so I won't get into why I love these bands.

Concerts I went to in 2017

Unfortunately last night I had Windows update and it took all evening for it to go through. Needless to say I was not amused because I could not compose what would be tonight's blog. Thank you Microsoft Windows for that long ass update!

Despite having a super shitty year in 2017, I did manage to attend some great live shows this year. I thought I would share with my readers footage from the shows I recorded.

Unfortunately I didn't get any footage from the White Lies and Austra concerts I attended earlier this year but oh well. I enjoyed the White Lies show a lot, wasn't that impressed with Austra (which would be my last show at the Triple Rock). Just not my cup of tea and should have gone to the Muna show at The Turf Club that same night.

The Chelsea Wolfe and Youth Code was fantastic. Chelsea Wolfe is electrifying live. That was my second time I had seen Youth Code and I was not disappointed. Two days later I went to see Ohgr and a little KMFDM. I would have gotten footage of Ohgr's set but I really could not get any decent shots of the band. I did get a clip of KMFDM live. I thought they sounded better live than the last time I saw them which was at First Avenue with Combichrist several years ago.

I think the Aesthetic Perfection show with Nyxx and Solar Fake was my favorite concert of 2017.  Got to hang and chat with Nyxx for several minutes. She is right up there with Jennifer Parkin, Kristy Venrick, and Raymond Watts as the nicest,sweetest musicians I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and talking to over the years. The PIG show was awesome. I still can't believe I got to meet Raymond Watts and had my photo taken with him. He is another fave too.

The Swedish synthpop band Kite was excellent. I hope they come back to town again. They were electrifying to watch.
