Gator from San Francisco, sounds like a mixture of early-post punk with psychedelic rock, David Bowie on Station to Station style. Their homonymous album has been released in 2018, with 12 tracks, including Full Moon. The band is also organising a vinyl pre-order, which is great. Although it has a psychedelic rock kind of sound with Full Moon, all Gator tracks are pretty short, heavily influence by punk-rock, specially in the tracks’ length. The opening track The Middle Part / Summertime, is as punk as Dead Kennedys. The track Gator, sounds like being influenced by Iron Maiden or British Heavy Metal from the 80s blended with Slayer or Sepultura in the guitar, specially in the closing seconds. One thing is true, watching Gator alive would be great!

Roach Motel is an experimental track from 5th Planet, artist from New York city. The track is part of a 6 tracks EP called CosmicDrip. It reminds us synthwave for a while, if focused on the synthesizers themselves. However, the drums are atypical if you think about this style, that focus on the usual reverberated kick and snare (4×4). CosmicDrip is way more complex and experimental, allowing 5th Planet to apply brights synthesizers while layering different beats upon it. The result is a Sega Mega Drive style of music, on a boss battle, uplifting and energetic. Another remarkable track from this EP is Elevation, that draws inspiration from house music.
Roach Motel has been added to our Spotify playlist Synths of Eden:
Inspired by a recent reading of Brett Easton Ellis’s ‘Less Than Zero’, I wanted to create a track that evoked the bored, vapid glamour of mid 80’s Los Angeles with the haunted, paranoid through-line of someone who expects to meet their maker. The song could be described as dark synth and is influenced by artists such as Perturbator and Carpenter Brut.
Draw Hard is a track by Oceanland, from Sydney, Australia. It’s a synthwave with vocals that sounds like a gothic synthpop in the end, with touches of psychedelia all around. It’s high class electronic music, which gives it a place in our playlist Synthwave in Eden.
Synths of Techno’s newest addition is Riders, by Bioslave. The track is part of a 10 tracks compilation called X, by Lost Crate label from Berlin.
