Today be sure to get a head start on Monday’s episode by checking out this week’s artists on the Show Companion Playlists.
This week, Aaron and Brent highlight music from two groups hailing from England: one that combines the sound of synthwave with heavier guitar riffs and the other often cited as one of the earliest and most innovative bands to break into the pop mainstream on a wave of synthesizers and electronic rhythms.
Describing themselves as “a retro cinematic experience”, Aaron looks at three songs from the Peterborough band LeBrock including “Running Wild”, “Dangerous Dreams”, and “Hollow”.
Taking their name from science-fiction board game StarForce: Alpha Centauri, Brent highlights three songs from the Sheffield band The Human League including “Being Boiled”, “(Keep Feeling) Fascination”, and “Human”.
The episode will be available Monday, January 16th wherever you listen to podcasts.
