VARIOUS ARTISTS: Synthpunk Fanzine Compilation: CD

Here’s a great new comp for fans of synth punk, obviously. I found the cover art to be on the cheesy side, but that’s probably my only negative criticism. All the tracks on here are amazing. Most of them have a lo-fi quality to them, which only makes this kind of music better, in my opinion. Aside from Black Bug and Nervous Gender, I wasn’t familiar with any of these bands but was pleasantly surprised with some new ones. Limited to five hundred on mini-CD. –Ryan Nichols (Synthpunk Fanzine, no address listed)
