My Top 10 Tracks: The Pansentient League

My Top 10 Tracks: The Pansentient League

If you read this blog then chances are you love music. Music has inspired me throughout my life: in fact according to my mum, when I was a toddler I pointed my chubby little baby finger at the family record player and spoke my very first word: “ec-cord!” I’ve listened to a lot of records since then. And cassette tapes. And CDs. And MP3s. And Spotify streams. I’ve been to hundreds of gigs, sat through recording sessions, [...]
Their Top 10 Tracks: Closing Comments

Their Top 10 Tracks: Closing Comments

Last month, I asked about 60 bands and music folk I admire to send me a list of their Top 10 favourite songs, with a few words to say why that song was especially important to them. I said it was for a feature I had planned for my Spotify-injected music blog. Twenty-four of those musical maestros sent in their lists with commentary that was at turns enlightening, amusing, heart-warming, and above all inspiring. It really has been a pleasure [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: Spotibot

My Top 10 Tracks: Spotibot

Spotibot is the Spotify-powered music-discovery service that took the Best Overall trophy in this year’s Spotify Community Site Awards. From its early days as a URL and Twitter tool for Spotify, Spotibot has grown into a suite of services for all Spotify users, most notably the Playlist Generator is the ideal resource when you’re looking for something new to listen to. I asked Spotibot developer Andy Smith to tell us about his [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: Parralox

My Top 10 Tracks: Parralox

Parralox are the multi-talented John von Ahlen and Amii, two antipodean popsters who blend chart-friendly dance music with synthpop and Hi-NRG to produce a unique contemporary sound. I love these guys, I think they’ve produced some of the very best music to come out in the past few year. I reviewed their Isn’t It Strange single back in March and was honestly impressed: it’s chock-full of brilliant mixes and other exclusive [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: Freezepop

My Top 10 Tracks: Freezepop

Freezepop are an American electropop band who released their first album Freezepop Forever in 2000. They’ve since released two more albums and a slew of excellent EPs, remix albums and singles. Freezepop’s tech-savvyness and geek-friendly attitude has resulted in many of their songs being featured in videogames like Frequency, Amplitude, Guitar Hero and Rock Band. I’ve been a huge fan of these guys since the beginning: [...]

My Top 10 Tracks: Electronically Yours

Electronically Yours is one of the longest-running synth-pop websites. Originally a Human League fansite, EY has since grown to encompass all-things synthpop and electropop, focusing on both established acts as well as up-and-coming bands. Site owner and editor Orac is ably assisted by his team of contributors, chief of whom is the enigmatic Babooshka. As well as running the website, Orac masterminds the Electronically Yours record label [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: Tenek

My Top 10 Tracks: Tenek

Tenek are Geoff Pinckney and Pete Steer, a UK-based synth band with a sound that features shades of classic electronica fused with a contemporary twist: synthpop with futurepop leanings. Debut album Stateless was one of my favourite albums of 2009 and I recently reviewed (and loved!) their new single. Tenek’s highly-anticipated follow-up album On The Wire will be released next month; you can pre-order it here. I asked Pete for a list [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: Vision Talk

My Top 10 Tracks: Vision Talk

Vision Talk are a Swedish electro band who recently released their second album Elevation. I instantly liked it: it took their earlier italo disco sound and evolved it into a Scandinavian synthpop vibe. It’s a fun pop album that’d I’d recommend to anyone into electropop or futurepop, especially fans of S.P.O.C.K. and Apoptygma Berzerk. Unfortunately this may be the final album from Vision Talk, as they are thinking of moving [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: Flux

My Top 10 Tracks: Flux

We’re into the final week of The Pansentient League’s special feature where some of our favourite bands, DJs, and music personalities tell us about their Top 10 Songs. Each article includes a Spotify playlist so that you can listen in to the selection while reading the guest’s commentary. Flux are Finnish trio Asta, Ville, and Vesa. I thought their début album Safe + Sound was so good I placed it in my Top 3 Synthpop [...]
My Top 10 Tracks: Slave Republic

My Top 10 Tracks: Slave Republic

Slave Republic are a German synth/new-wave band whose début album Electric One was recently released on Accession Records, home to futurepop artists Assemblage 23 and SITD.  I really liked the album, it’s full of catchy songs and it put me in mind of IAMX and Duran Duran at their best. Slave Republic have worked with the likes of Olaf Wollschläger (And One, Paradise Lost) and Haujobb and are shortly going on tour with De/Vision [...]
