Frozen Nation – Dark Belgian Disco
An awesome danceable Synth Pop album

Cosaquitos en Globo – Humanum
Dark beats from Buenos Aires
In an increasingly dark, automated and distant world, HUMANUM embodies the uneasiness of these times but, at the same time, rebels by proposing sweet and luminous melodies, showing one of the most openly sensible panoramas of the duo.
Cosaquitos en Globo’s 4th album navigates between the ethereal, the deep and somehow heartbreaking, an organic and emotional response to an increasingly less empathic world.
In its alternate reality, man and machine come together to create a utopic fantasy, contrary to the apocalyptic vertigo that surrounds us, escaping to recover the essence that makes us human.

The Static Architect – Disarray
You like Nine Inch Nails, then check out this
The Static Architect is an indie synth rock/industrial-esque amalgamation of noise, guitars, and electronics. A sonic hack into your virtual soul. Vocally the singer Nick McLaren is very close to Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails). You also can find an awesome cover version of ‘Down In The Park’ originally performed by ‘Gary Numan’.
The Static Architect also appears on the last Electrozombies compilation ‘Universe > Spirit (A Tribute To Depeche Mode)‘ with a gorgeous cover version of ‘Going Backwards’.

Fires – Red Goes Grey
An Industrial / Synthwave combination
Thirteen years. The time between beginning and an ending, and the return to the familiar ground of first pages being turned.
This is the ethos behind FIRES, new project from Eric Sochocki (Cryogen Second, Becoming The Devourer), which sees a return to his dance roots. However, this return is not to familiar territory, as FIRES does not opt for political warnings entrenched in post-apocalyptic imagery, as seen in Cryogen Second, or towards the esoteric and ephemeral, like Becoming the Devourer. Instead, FIRES is a direct reach inward and expressed in pop melodies, electronic rock, and nods to the retro-futurism of Synthwave.
This album can trace its musical lineage directly to Industrial acts like Imperative Reaction, Aesthetic Perfection, and Alter Der Ruine, while taking pieces from modern Synthwave producers like Carpenter Brut, S U R V I V E, and Vogel.
