Retro-Style in Music

Postby Michael » 09 Dec 2013, 17:58

For the past year I've been interested in the growing popularity of 'retro-styles' in music. Specifically, music that hearkens back to the heavy synthesizer sounds of the 1980s. Called 'retrowave' or 'new retrowave', it reminds us all of a time when electronic music was about more than drum loops.

Listening to these songs reminds me that good music is still being made.

Some samples:

Kavinsky - Pacific Coast Highway

Justice - New Lands (this is one of the better music videos I have ever seen, incidentally)

Lazerhawk - Distress Signal (another neat video, assembled entirely from 1980s commercials and video clips)

Futurecop - Venice Beach
