Yo /mu/, thoughts on this album?
Also, recommend me 80s New Wave.
Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Tears for Fears, Talk Talk. I need mooooore
>not thinking Head Over Heels is one of the GOAT
You can find it in archive with bonus tracks.
Go there mate : >>54122165
Also, I have a vibe that you are a bro-tier guy. Hit me with your last.fm username and I'll add you.
Bonus song ^^
long since forgotten where i found it (i want it to say it was the editor's letter in a metal magazine?), but For Against - December is my favorite little-known dream pop record.
Lloyd Cole & the Commotions - Rattlesnakes has been my favorite new-wave record for the past few years.
no idea, i picked this up years ago.
but if you want, i could up it to zippy or whatever.
my copy's only in 192 but i could probably scrounge up an HQ copy off slsk if it's important.

No no need. I think I can find it. Thank you very much mate. It is kind of you.
>well done dark jangle pop
having heard enough bad jangle pop out of shitty Brooklyn bands in the last decade to last me a lifetime, i will gladly take the solidly-made stuff wherever i can find it.
aight, i guess.
if you change your mind, my upload speed is good enough that i wouldn't mind in the slightest.

Thank you a lot. Do you use last.fm ? If yes, what is your username ?
Why are people so indifferent to such a dope thread ?
>tfw people think it is a Bronski Beat song.
That's one of my favourite albums
Here's another jewel
reminder that Aztec Camera exist and that you should listen to them
this is good too
Holy fuck, nice one!
That's one of my favorite LPs and have never seen anyone else praise it highly here. I originally heard it in the 90's and didn't care for it nearly as much Fireside Favourite so I shelved it.
I started listening to it again late 2001 in the aftermath of Sept 11 and suddenly the whole wartime paranoia and lonlieness and isolation made perfect sense.
Fucking essential document of Falklands War era England and a damn good listen for anyone.
Have you heard the extended version of For Whom The Bells Toll?
i am legit amazed that you haven't heard Aztec Camera before, seems like it'd be totally up your alley.
you've heard Orange Juice, at least?
Yes, they are nice.
There are some 80s band that have been on my backlog for years such as For Against, Aztec Camera, Chrome ( started to listen to them finally, lel ) and Tuxedomoon but I never got into them. Dunno why.
I will check Aztec Camera this week though.
By the way, what is the most praised 80s albums you couldn't love guys ?
Mine is Crazy Rhythms by The Feelies. I can't get it.
I like them but I think they are pretty overrated since their lyrics are easily reachable and Robert Smith is a likeable guy.
Try Faith though. My favorite album by them. It has a coldwave appeal.
Just gonna throw this out there, a great song from a great album with the best new wave video ever:
Have you heard Marc Almond's post-Soft Cell work?
I had a roommate who was queer as fuck and played it all the time. I liked it then(it was a nice break from the pretentious DiJ and C93 type shit he played incessantly otherwise) and still do, but tbh it's just to flamboyantly faggy for me to truly love or even play around my straight friends (which is every single one where I now live)
pic unrelated, but fuckin hell /mu/ neglects the fuck out of the Eurythmics and I can't for the life of me figure out why - for a top 40 band they were patrician asfuck
>entry level but still great, and awesome live video
I never cared for Japan, let alone bothered to follow their solo careers
Marc's solo career ranges from pretty expected new wave (Marc & The Mambas and ...the Willling Sinnerst) to dark cabaret to faggy as fuck lounge singing
But if you like Soft Cell, its worth checking out. And you know he helped Coil with their GOAT and scary as hell cover of Tainted Love, right?
fuck i dunno man I dunno
This one I actually listened to as a child after finding the album in a library bin, so I have massive nostalgia for a song thats about massive nostalgia - kinda a double whammy there
Someone needs to do a neo folk cover of it, that would be boss
Not my cup of tea but I appreciate him for Coil cover.
Coil's Who By Fire cover is good, too.
David Slyvian's solo career is like the second half of Eno's Before and After Science. If you like it, you might check Slyvian.
As a proud product of American public schools, my English sucks too - no worries
>4 Rare 80s
Sounds cool and thanks for the tip, but I'm not that into the genre, I'd rather be looking for hidden 60's garage rock or old country gems.
Still, i'll always love a good new wave almost classic:
