The Hiram key - Amerikafka

The Hiram key - Amerikafka
(2011) Echozone

Somehow I had missed this very Cure-ish band. I know I've been recommended to check them out several times, but I must have forgotten. The songs that doesn't sound like The cure are the best, sadly they aren't that many. But, and that's a big but(t) (!), the Cure-sounding songs are really good, too! I've had "What Kind Of..." on my mind for two days now! It's a really great tune. Check this out if your into pop/goth.

Thyx - Super Vision

Thyx - Super Vision (2014)
Thyx Records

It's already time for a new Stefan Poiss album. This time it's Thyx, but it could might as well been a new Mind.In.A.Box album. I don't know why he has two (actually three, counting Loomec) different projects for the same kind of music? It doesn't make sense. Sure, the Mind.In.A.Box albums released on Dependent Records sounded a bit different (=better). But I think that was because Dependent works together with the artist, giving valueable tips and advise how to make the albums better.
Don't expect any surprises on this one. Same old, same old!

Great debut album by this Scottish one man project. Tom Perrett does know how to make a catchy futurepop tune. Get this album on Bandcamp.

Espermachine - Into Bronze

Espermachine - Into Bronze
(2014) Not On Label

Much like the first Espermachine album, the 2012 "Dying Life", this is a favourite of mine. The CD has not been released yet, but the Bandcamp download is available. Apart from two shorter instrumentals/experiments this album is rock solid. Espermachine has it's own sound, with dark vocals and very special brand of rhythmic and minmalistic EBM/futurepop.
