The new Father John Misty album leaked last week so I've been listening to it on repeat. You can listen to a few of the singles that are out now on spotify and youtube. I really like the sound. FJM is pretty hit and miss with me so I'm really excited with his current direction.
I've been on a helluva Oingo Boingo binge lately! After getting pretty heavy into their first two albums Only A Lad and Nothing To Fear last year, I've recently checked out the albums Dead Man's Party and Boi-NGO. Gotta say, these guys' sound is timeless. I consider myself to have a fairly eclectic taste, but I do love great hooks and catchy tunes over all else. And boy does OB do that so very well. Elfman's a hilarious lyricist, Bartek makes some catchy riffs, Hatch was a madman on bass those first two albums, Avila is solid as a rock on the latter albums. It feels like a supergroup with the amount of talent that oozes from every song. The brass section is phenomenal, too. It wouldn't be Boingo without the brass. If you like 80s wackiness, or wackiness in general, I highly recommend them. Nothing To Fear is a great start if you like more zaniness, and Dead Man's Party is a great start if you lean towards the contemporary.
Designer Carnage by ESA (Electronic Substance Abuse) - If you're into industrial with a more original flavor to it - this is great. I especially love the last track "Saturnalia".
Acid 2 Body by Black Agent - If you want some newer industrial that sounds like older industrial with some peppering of coldwave thrown in.
Transmutation EP by Rein, Djedjotronic - If you want some newer industrial ebm that sounds like an updated version of industrial.
Vice Versa by Vector Seven - EBM/Darkwave that is repetitive and has those sweet extraplanetary robotic sounds to it.
Forget Your Own Face by Black Dresses If you can handle some metal hyperpop.
