some new shit that ive heard recently:
covenant [northern light]
i thought it a bit strange at first but gets better with progressive listens. edging towards dark depeche mode with phat analog synths. warning: a lot of vocoder...this may be good or bad, considering your tastes. overall, a solid consistant effort. you'll find no dead stars here.
assemblage 23 single [document]
the origional is pretty good...the good ole A23 dance hit cookie cutter machine is still online. remixes of note: echo image: synthpop-tized with the obligatory female backing vocals in the chorus. icon of coil: uber dancified...similar to what they did for vnv genesis but not as hard. more moody feel, but that could just be the song.
pretty promising from what i have heard so far. caught their live show while in nawlins. not bad live either. i give these guys my full support. standout tracks=zionsank, thin ice, brittle
