Molchat Doma - Tancevat

Molchat Doma is a band operating on the borderlines of post-punk, new-wave and darker ends of synth-pop, hailing from Belarus, playing music that is dark and danceable at the same time. It is a perfect emulation of the genre yet instantly recognizable as theirs, with lyrics sung in Russian. On top of that – it sounds like a mix of everything a contemporary goth can wish for, and it also sounds an awful lot like the Belarusian band Molchat Doma (which translates as “Houses are silent”). Currently a trio with Egor Shkutko on vocal duties, Roman Komogortsev on guitar, synths, and drum machine. Including Pavel Kozlov on bass and synths. The song "Tancevat" (meaning "They danced") comes from their second LP, Этажи (pronounced Etazhi, meaning “Floors”) that was released in 2018.

John Maus - Cop Killer

When Body Count released the song Cop Killer in 1992, it was considered so inflammatory that Charlton Heston and vice president Dan Quayle joined forces in a hysterical but ultimately successful campaign to have it banned. John Maus's song of the same name, issued earlier this year, has yet to generate a similar level of controversy; probably because Maus is a cultish synthpop crooner who's replaced the incendiary rap-metal onslaught of the original with a maudlin electronic ballad that nobody is likely to interpret as incitement to murder a policeman. Yet Maus's eerie take on Cop Killer carries just as much subversive intent. "I've always wanted to do something with that lyric," says the excitable Minnesotan, words gushing out of him in an enthusiastic torrent. "Cop Killer is the perfect way of putting over the idea that any worthwhile political or artistic agenda should be seeking an undoing of the situation as it stands. Whether the status quo is a political state or a musical language, the idea should be to kill or overthrow that. The song's not about killing a human being, but about overcoming inhumanity; destroying the machinery that turns us toward an end other than ourselves."

Devo - Gates Of Steel

Devo (/ˈdiːvoʊ/, originally /diːˈvoʊ/)is an American rock band from Akron, Ohio formed in 1973. Their classic lineup consisted of two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It", the song that gave the band mainstream popularity. Devo is known for their music and stage shows mingling kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor and mordantly satirical social commentary. Their early, pre Warner Bros. dissonant songs use synthetic instrumentation and time signatures proven influential on subsequent popular music, particularly new wave, industrial, and alternative rock artists. Devo (most enthusiastically Gerald Casale) was also a pioneer of the music video, creating clips for the LaserDisc format, with "Whip It" getting heavy airplay in the early days of MTV.

Doric feat Valisia Odell-Poets' Land

Doric is the solo, side-project of Stathis Leontiadis, mostly known as the one half of the Human Puppets, as well as the Exetix and Plexiglas. Being involved in various avant garde/new wave music projects since 1996, intrigued by the all analogue mentality of the late 70’s-early 80’s music field, he passionately committed to vintage synths and machines, creating a very distinctive and specific style and considered by many as “specialist”. His live performances are all analogue by choice and are interestingly captivating as the sound is being built on stage, just like the old days.

KRAFTWERK - TOUR DE FRANCE

Kraftwerk (German: [ˈkʁaftvɛɐ̯k], lit. "power station") is a German band formed in Düsseldorf in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. Widely considered as innovators and pioneers of electronic music, they were among the first successful acts to popularize the genre. The group began as part of West Germany's experimental krautrock scene in the early 1970s before fully embracing electronic instrumentation, including synthesizers, drum machines, and vocoders. On commercially successful albums such as Autobahn (1974), Trans-Europe Express (1977), and The Man-Machine (1978), Kraftwerk developed a self-described "robot pop" style that combined electronic music with pop melodies, sparse arrangements, and repetitive rhythms, while adopting a stylized image including matching suits. Following the release of Electric Café (1986), member Wolfgang Flür left the group in 1987; the band's other longtime percussionist, Karl Bartos, did the same in 1990. Founding member Schneider departed in 2008. The band's work has influenced a diverse range of artists and many genres of modern music, including synthpop, hip hop, post-punk, techno, ambient, and club music. In 2014, the Recording Academy honoured Kraftwerk with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. As of 2020, the remaining members of the band continue to tour.
