These guys release music at a phenomenal rate (as Acemo, Moma Ready, Gallery S etc) but this is their first release this year under the AceMoMa moniker with the album A Future.

 

This is really growing on me, these guys are slaying it at the moment.

Oh man, I think they’re amazing, so much great material between the two of them and the Haus of Altr label. 
 

(I love Acemo’s remix of the recent Fort Romeau track ‘Fwd Nrg) 

 

Not new this year but a prime example or just how good AceMoMa are at what they do.

Yup, the new MoMa Ready album is worth a listen too.

I’ve been listening to Deep England by NYX & Gazelle Twin, which is kind of a reworking of her last album Pastoral, and it’s quite unsettling and unnerving, in a good way.

Just taken the new Fabric Live mix album for a spin, by Overmono, and it certainly gets the pulses racing - some absolute bangers on there, love how they mix L.B. Dub Corp into Richie Hawtin’s Fuk (haven’t listened to that in a long while) and there’s a couple of great tracks by favourites of mine Blawan and Powder I hadn’t heard before . Plus loads of other ace stuff.

I've been enjoying New Earth by Nuovo Testamento a lot.

 For fans of synthwave, 80s disco, synth pop, post punk etc. I think depeche mode fans will like it.

Quote

An American-Italian supergroup endeavour featuring singer Chelsey Crowley and synthesizer players Andrea Mantione and Giacomo Zatti, Nuevo Testamento deal in highly enjoyable of coldwave, Italo house and classic, Eighties-influenced synth-pop on their first full-length album ‘New Earth’.

 

Quote

Nuovo Testamento’s New Earth is, without a doubt, an album for the summer. Glistening, shimmering synthesizers and Italo disco-infused beats are prominent in the new release by the band—members Andrea Mantione and Giacomo Zatti are based in Italy, while Chelsey Crowley is in Los Angeles—whose influences range from Hi-NRG, to freestyle, to their roots in deathrock and punk.  This mish-mash of elements create the edge for New Earth‘s specific sound that consists of addictive hooks that are saturated in melancholy, all underneath Crowley’s bright vocals.

Their Italo disco influence has a large presence in the first half of the record; songs such as “Michelle, Michelle” and “The Searcher” are primed for the dance floor. “Golden Boy” blends post-punk guitars into its sorrowful melody while “New Earth” and “Intuition” perfectly blend Radiorama and Eighth Wonder’s unabashed pop sensibility with the synthesized gloominess of Red Flag or Cetu Javu.

Don Broco continue to refuse to stick to one sound and have now released something that wouldn't sound out of place on a Deftones record

Have you got a spare 17 minutes to hear about Slant, a South Korean hardcore punk band? I've no idea what their lyrics about but holy shit did I want to break stuff as I walked home from Sainsbury's! :wub:

Aleksi Perälä continues to release music at a blinding pace (something like twenty albums and counting, this year) and as usual it’s excellent stuff - just start anywhere!

Ahhhh, this is it!! This was playing in some shop I was in in Shanghai the other day and I forgot to shazam it on my phone and thought I'd never find it again.
