I love synthpop. My iPod has over 2,000 songs as of last count. I love the process of discovering new music. I have to wade through a lot of stuff that just doesn’t tickle my ears, but when I do find something notable, it’s very exciting. Here are five of my favorite synthpop acts, who have been in heavy rotation on my iPod Touch lately:
- De/vision – Does German synthpop get any better than this?
- Foretaste – An obscure French group that has put out two remarkable CDs
- Mesh – We Collide is their best CD yet. I can’t wait for what’s next!
- Rupesh Cartel – This group from Sweden features great vocals and incredible synth instrumentation. They have a unique but very engaging style!
- Marsheaux – These two s from Greece are a little more on the poppy side, but display an amazing knack for writing songs that stick in your brain and play over and over. Great stuff!
