Gold Fields – “Dark Again” [Diamond Rings Remix]


Gold Fields - Dark Again

My favorite band at the moment, Gold Fields receives a cool dance remix for “Dark Again,” by Canadian, synth-pop tour mate, Diamond Rings! The killer remix debuted today over at Noisey.

Diamond Rings tells Noisey:

“After hearing “Dark Again” so many times on tour (always a good thing) it was a real challenge to try and re-imagine the song as a remix. Working in the tour van between shows on a laptop isn’t always ideal but that’s how I ended up putting everything together. When I listen back to the mix it takes me back to all of the sights and sounds that I soaked up while traveling across America with the Diamond Rings band and those amiable Australians.”

Check out the killer remix below! “Dark Again” is taken from the band’s upcoming debut, Black Sun due out in February 26!

HURTS – “MIRACLE” [Premiere]


UK synthpop duo Hurts, returns with a massive new single entitled, “Miracle” from their upcoming sophomore album, Exile.
Their identifying sythnpop sound takes a bit of a backseat on this track to sounds of crashing drums and soaring guitar riffs; but maintains the same poignant, lyrical punch that we have come to love (and expect) from the duo. This track is huge!

Take a listen!!

WAZU – ROBOBO [Album Review]

Embrace your darker side, at least for one bone-chilling night. Nodding back ever so graciously to the synth sounds of neo-80s, this orchestra of goth, horror-punk, dance & electro is sure to entice.  Wazu’s full album Robobo released this past Halloween gives us a deeper darker insight into their feelings of disdain & haunting gloom. Surprisingly their deep dark voyage gives way to a hopeful outcome.

This eccentric pair comprised of Matt & Rizz, natives of Sydney Australia and now based in New York City have formed a sound that can be comparable to that of Depeche Mode and even newer bands such as Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti & Crystal Castles. Even though slightly reminiscent to others in certain ways, Wazu has definitely managed to cleverly carve out an original sound that is enjoyably fresh in this rapidly growing field of “me too’s”.

Ingenious lyrics accompanied by energetic dark grooves and ghostly vocals work together so seamlessly in danceable tracks like “It’s a Trick” & “Councilor”. As we progress, the melancholy feeling of “Ghost Years” is haunting on so many levels. And alas, a beautiful ending to an already compelling piece of art is “Irene” with wonderful guitars and deep vocals that end in an array of atmospheric fog. Robobo is a brilliant journey full of emotional high & lows that I was more than happy to experience. by Wil Rodriguez.
