Hey guys, In December look out for an EP compilation including Nina, Vincenzo Salvia, Dana Jean Phoenix and Espen Kraft, on a lovely 45 rpm vinyl via Night Drive Records. Watch the video below for more info.
The much beloved synth siren Dana Jean Pheonix is back with her third, long-awaited full length album, “Synth City.” This collection of tracks is a powerful mix of dreamwave and synthpop - a true testament to just how amazing retro vocals can be when done
Like a song has been produced and then filtered through a lazy VHS tape, the retro vibe is spot on throughout, synth pop, retro-electro and 80s computer-funk, wobbling brooding synths, light chord stabs, melancholy and lost.
I'm guilty of describing music in terms of hipster mathematics. Death Cab For Cutie + Neutral Milk Hotel = The Decemberists. That sort of thing. Fifteen seconds into "Cast Away", the opening track of Highway Superstar's Endgame, the musical arithmetic was firing away.
