    Hi !

    Hands up. You have the right to keep silent.

    If you prefer to speak loud, you can contribute to the Global Enquiry for collecting the list of Bands Known or Obscure who Sound like Joy Division especially concerning the rythmical section .

    So, I ask you for the last time : which bands do you know with a big round obsessive rythm ?

    They all saw The Sex Pistols live & made bands, we listen to the bands & forget home-made friendly local new wave !

    Passive ? Active ? A question of era and comfort, maybe...

    Regional news ? Evolution of bands and styles in your town ? Underrated bands you know ?

    >>> Fanzine : write a short wiki (even "non"-neutral : special authorization) + links to samples, then share the link to your thread / article with your friends.
    Indie, electro, post-punk, psyche, mod, funky, ethereal, pop, transe, dream, doom, punk, stoner... All thing other than L. Gaga & sponsored stuff !

    And... Suggest connexions. Cheers :-)

    Psychedelic, ambient, very various.

    Very active artist.

    Also seems to know opportunities for newcomer bands.

    I personally like psychedelic experimental old school ambient.
    This is a mix, with modern points but the major part is sure value.
    Travel from natural sounds to pure psyche through guitar magistral blues-solos on captivating rythms, never oppressive.

    Thin balance in sounds, variations, pattern alternance.
    Able to master different periods in musical history : impressive illusion.
    How many is this guy ? %-)

    Can't remember any band like this, though I know gong, magma, and so on... Huge !

  • See Why A ... ? : Cold Wave Revival.

    16 oct. 2011, 18h50m par bertrand-escaff

    Nowadays big bands and magazines. Yesterday old school bands with small unofficial fanzines.

    So today a fanzine online : group "Fanzine", and a point to gather creativity and relationship between old school new wave nostalgics and new "old school artists" : group "Cold Wave Revival", for communication and action.

    General style : Cold Wave & New Wave old school, Electro-Minimalist, Experimental New Wave, Krautrock New Wave.

    1) Please, you are invited to introduce your local bands, give elements for lists and new articles.

    2) You are invited to encourage them to get interviewed : the more spoken about, the more listened to.

    3) Bands are invited to put stuff online as an example (even demos) : so tell them thanx.


    Exclusion : pop, goth with antimoral revendication, nazis (by definition).
    Strongly recommended : original, old school, anti nazi.


    Tagging : "new wave old school", "cold wave", "coldwave".
    Also : "cold wave revival" for anyone who want to make a specific group radio, why not ?
    "cold core" for any track (or whole "artist") exclusively in the cold wave arid style.
    "krautcold" for psychedelic new wave or cold wave.
    "this is precisely cold core" when you detect any pure cold wave track, even if the artist is classified in techno or variety for instance. (by example there are at least two experimental techno bands who actually make a kind of cold wave, with extreme sound tension - which were the names, by the way ?).


    Welcome and thank you for sharing and enjoying.
  • [My Gang] Jon Hopkins - Cold Out There : Reco of the Week 02 Jun 09

    2 juin 2009, 20h42m par Babs_05

    Track: Cold Out There (full track)
    Artist: Jon Hopkins
    Album: Opalescent (2005)
    Tags: , , , , , ,
    Video: Click the pic...


    I have heard two outstanding new innovative electronic albums in the last few days - Thom Yorke's friends Moderat - Moderat and Jon Hopkins - Insides, both released in May and both equally as ingenious. The only reason I've chosen Jon Hopkins is because I also want to tell you about the latest news from The Arctic Circle and the Chiller Cabinet.

    The track I recommend this week is one I have heard many times on The Chiller Cabinet, a late night radio show of "ambience, movies, & minimalism", currently on ChillDAB. The track is available here in and I have it tagged for the group radio, which is based entirely on official tracklists I have managed to get hold of. To date, it has been my favourite Jon Hopkins track, although having heard the new album, I have some thinking to do. Also, we are enjoying a mini-heatwave here in London which apparently ends overnight tonight. So this is our weather forecast for the coming week! (Well maybe not quite...).

    Ben Eshmade, producer of the Chiller Cabinet, has been very busy working on related projects, from free lunchtime concerts - Daylight Music - to free to download weekly podcasts - Arctic Circle Radio. Daylight Music also gets its own podcast called The Hut, which you can see in the same link. Week 2 was announced earlier today, so you haven't missed too much yet. See this journal from Chill DAB who introduce the shows. There are tracklists available for both podcasts and I plan to tag them all up for new tag radios, coming soon.

    Insides, might just trounce Moderat's eponymous 'debut' (which was delayed by about seven years) by the tiniest smidge for its depth, variety, range and vision. Encompassing every sound between rural folkiness and breakbeat/jazz percussion, stopping for the tenderest of whispers along the way, the music is as beautiful as it is clever. From Hopkins' MySpace:
    At long last, a mere 5 years since Contact Note, my new album Insides is out. It was recorded at Cafe Music Studios in London, by me, on the piano, and the laptop. It also features the following amazing guest instumentalists: Leo Abrahams on the guitar and hurdy-gurdy, Emma Smith on the violin, Davide Rossi on the electric violin, Vince Sipprell on the viola, Lee Muddy Baker on the drums, King Creosote on the humming, and Lisa Lindley-Jones on the additional vocals. Remixes of Light Through the Veins were provided by David Holmes and Ewan Pearson. Mastering was performed by Guy Davie at Electric Mastering. The record has been released by Double Six / domino records and the awesome artwork has been designed by Man Vs Magnet.

    The bulk of the recording was done in the first half of 2008, and was finally completed last August. However, some tracks were conceived as early as 2005, with a few more being written in 2006. Then 2007 was too busy and only left me time to write Vessel in the September. Finally I managed to set aside a concentrated bit of time between February and June 2008 and turned it into what it is now.

    Small Memory was the last to be completed, taking less than one day. In contrast, Light Through the Veins, from its origin as a simple nine-note idea in late 2006, eventually took over three weeks to finish, and ended up containing about 800 sounds, layered over 128 tracks.

    Of course, as any Coldplay fan will know, Light Through the Veins was sampled in Viva la Vida.

    The video was very welcome today as temperatures reached 28C in my living room. Not sure I'll feel the same once the north winds start blowing again. It features penguins, which will no doubt please Ben Eshmade immensely.
