The Rise of The Synths Companion Album Will Feature Lazerhawk

The latest artist reveal on the upcoming The Rise of The Synths Companion Album is Austin-based Lazerhawk, who will contribute a new, original track.  Follow the band on Facebook for band updates!

A founding member of Rosso Corsa, Lazerhawk is Garrett Hays from Austin, Texas, USA. His outrun electro is robot pop mixed with dark synths and the occasional lyric. Two years ago I described him as reminiscent of everything that was good in the ’80s: synthesizer jams with gargantuan leads, hard toms, spaced-out melody and the pains of being pure at heart. Since then he has experimented with chill wave and disco, but with a fundamental link to the ’80s.

The Rise of The Synths Companion Album will be out this spring. Listen to the debut single here.

THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS is a feature documentary directed by Iván Castell and produced by Javier Moreno with an amazing team from Spain.  The film is the definitive documentary about synthwave and ’80s retro and electronic music.  The filmmakers’ crowd-funding campaign is running right now.  Head over to IndieGogo to give them your support!

‘The Rise Of The Synths’ Companion Album Will Feature French Synthwave Musician Carpenter Brut

The latest artist reveal on The Rise of The Synths Companion Album is Carpenter Brut, the French synthwave moniker of Franck Hueso.  Carpenter Brut is said to evoke “an encounter between Justice beats and the universe of John Carpenter.”  On Friday, March 3, Lakeshore will release the debut single featuring Carpenter Brut from The Rise of The Synths Companion Album on Bandcamp.  Stay tuned for a sneak preview this week!

In 2012, Carpenter Brut released EP I, which was an instant hit – especially with Le Perv and its music video which pays tribute to Fabio Fulci and ’80s slashers. Then came EP II, the powerful Roller Mobster, crowned the EP and became a reference in heavy synthwave. In early 2015 came the end of the trilogy started in 2012 with the release of the third EP, EPIII. Turbo Killer is part of his latest opus and the music video directed by Seth Ickerman may be considered as the synthesis of Carpenter Brut’s universe developed throughout the three EPs.

THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS is a feature documentary directed by Iván Castell and produced by Javier Moreno with an amazing team from Spain.  The film is the definitive documentary about synthwave and ’80s retro and electronic music.  The filmmakers’ crowd-funding campaign is running right now.  Head over to IndieGogo to give them your support!
