attack ships on fire

earlier in the year I was rambling on about the human league’s ‘love and dancing’ and how it was great, and so on. since then a bunch of new stuff, particularly kuedo’s ‘severant’ has been using old analogue synth sounds in new music. the old horror soundtracks of applehead and others too. not that this is all that new in itself, it just seemed to get more obvious or something. retro-futurism is the slightly ugly and unfortunate term in use. this mix of old and new is the result of me listening to a bunch of it and not thinking too hard about whether it was some kind of bogus search for authenticity. slightly less blade runner obsessed than I feared it was going to be.
