Last Friday we updated our Post Punk / Shoegaze / Post Rock inc Dark/Cold/Synth Wave Motorik & Kosmisiche Musik playlist and it all kicks off with a sparkling new track ‘La Poussière’ from Automelodi, the Montreal synthwave duo led by Xavier Paradis whose long awaited new album, Mirages au futur verre-brisé is out next month on Holodeck. Following that is the slow burning debut single ‘Hazy Strobes’ from the French darkwave & synthpop act Fragrance, the collaboration between Matthieu Roche, and Hélène de Thoury from Hante and Minuit Machine.
