Snailhead – The Image

Standard

The Image is an album inspired by the 1976 film of the same name. Whilst I have not seen the film itself, this rock driven British release does more than enough to keep you listening regardless. Snailhead puts forward synthpop alongside almost anthemic rock and also utilises a range of other artists in this album. The most surprising of these is the final rap track. A little too short unfortunately, but still a worthy download.

Heavy Strife – Synth├ętiseur

Standard

Upbeat synthpop with an occasionally moody undertone. Incredible range of synth sounds and textures, with a real 80s feeling at some points. Hazy vocals drift in and out on most tracks. You can also expect to hear some well placed guitar now and then. Overall, tightly produced with some shining, memorable moments. The sort of album you can sit back and just let it wash over you. Tragically short but highly recommended.

Ripple’Field – Hypernebula

Standard

Solo synthpop album by the vocalist of the (also fantastic) experimental rock band Airs. Expect to hear a great mix of dark and intriguing material, ranging from deep textural tracks to more bass heavy affairs. All of this is presented with the expected synthy goodness of, well, a synthpop album. But Hypernebula is an album that goes beyond that thanks to such a dynamic variety of sounds and song structures. Highly recommended.
