Elevn's Digital Empire: An Identity Crisis [Review]

I’ve been reviewing albums for a number of years, ranging from brutal death metal to experimental hip-hop, and I must say that, with the exception of one album, this is likely the most difficulty I’ve had reviewing a record. 1,772 more words

Album Review: Nightstop - Dancing Killer

Nightstop’s career is remarkable not just for its excellence, but also for its evolution. Early releases like 2013’s Fuel EP offered an essential synthwave sound that embraced central elements of the still-young style, namely bright melodies on retro synthesizers that recalled ’80s pop music and sun-soaked images of coastal cities like Los Angeles and Miami. 858 more words

Album Review: Kalax - Kalax

It is worth stepping back in time several years in order to gain the proper perspective on Kalax’s self-titled new album. In the early to mid-2010s, when synthwave was still a sproutling of ’80s music finding life in a fresh musical landscape, the process of establishing the genre was an important one. 709 more words
