Juno Reactor - The Golden Sun ... Remixed

Juno Reactor - The Golden Sun ... Remixed
(2015) Metropolis

This is the second Juno Reactor album I've bought both the download and the CD of. The mixing of the songs to make just one big song is not as bad here. It was much worse on the 2 year old companion album "The Golden Sun Of The Great East". But I want stand alone tracks, plus there's a bonus track on the digital download. It was a hard find, though. I had to use Hola to pretend I'm living in France, just to be able to download it. I hate region blocking! The remixes on this album are great improvements on the original songs. Big thumbs up!

NZ - Against You! EP

NZ - Against You! EP

This is already NZ's third EP. I love EP's! And I love bands that only release EP's, I wonder why I haven't mentioned NZ before?
Maybe because of the obvious Nitzer Ebb references? Yeah, I think so. If you need more Nitzer Ebb songs, check out these guys!

She Past Away - Narin Yalnizlik

She Past Away - Narin Yalnizlik
(2015) Dead Scarlet

Album number two from my favourite Turkish goth rockers. No real competition for that spot.... yet!? If you liked the 2012 (2013 on CD) debut album "Belirdi Gece" you will like this as well. It sounds just the same, no progression at all. Now, I don't think that's a bad thing - but I would've liked a bit stronger songs. Maybe I'll find some stand out tracks after further listening? I hope so. After all, I only recieved the CD yesterday.

Night Sins ‎- New Grave

Night Sins ‎- New Grave DD
(2012) Avant!

It's not easy finding new interesting goth/post punk bands making physical albums, other than vinyl, nowadays. If you're lucky you may manage to buy one of the, very few, limited CD's. More often than not Bandcamp has been my friend, and I have been forced to be satisfied with just a Flac download. I'm not complaining. Flac is totally fine by me, and I simply just don't have the time to stay updated on every band and genre...
Night Sins are a very cool goth/post punk band, from the US, that may very well be part of the big goth resurrection that I've been foreshadowing since, well, forever! Nice songs, nice bass - what's not to like?
