Paris Is Burning

They’re still on fire even if it’s been a couple of years since I heard from the band Paris Is Burning. Now they’re back with a fresh EP, “Desolation Years”, and serve us four tracks with dark post punk inspired from the eighties. Here are two of them:

LIABT – “Greatest Hits”

November 29, 2013 at 5:32 pm

Love Is a Burning Thing

A little while ago Love Is A Burning Thing launched their debut album. They call it “Greatest Hits” which is not a bad name for such a good album. Electro punk they wrote somewhere about the music which is a rather fitting characterization for these eight tracks, where a hard working distorted bass plows deep furrows in the dense, black electronic soil. It feels both like retro post punk and like their very own indie electronica. Listen here below in two songs.

Ra – “Bloodline”

We’ll stay in the eighties with one foot for this post, in post punk, Jesus & Mary Chain, Bauhaus and mix this with chanting shoegaze and psychadelia. That’s how the Malmö band Ra‘s debut ep “Bloodline” sound to me, an EP that was released this summer. Here’s the title track.

The Litsos – “Dance Like Children”

The Litsos

I have presented The Litsos here before as a duo. They have now grown to a five membered band, though, and have moved their base of operations from the north of Sweden to Göteborg. And they have grown with their music and their productions as well, here with the single “Dance Like Children”, the first one in a series of three. The inspiration still comes from the eighties’ New Wave and postpunk scene, but it’s starting to sound more and more like The Litsos than like anything else.

Fun Control

Fun Control describe themselves as a bunch of old post punk/synth musicians who now have found their way back to their roots after many years of discovering other genres. In Spring they released a couple of songs to explore this dark landscape they have returned to, a landscape created in the eighties which they gently sweeps over with echoing guitars and synth pads, enveloping us in a dreamy melancholy.
