The Rise of The Synths EP 1 Album Review | Vehlinggo

The Rise of The Synths EP 1 - Out May 12 on Lakeshore Records

Each artist has contributed a top-notch song to the project. – Vehlinggo

 

For synthwave aficionados and newcomers to this music genre alike, a documentary like The Rise of The Synths, together with the debut album, The Rise of The Synths (The Official Companion Album) EP 1, should be a required primer.  Aaron Vehlinggo reviews all seven cuts of EP 1 (read it here), which features new and original tracks by the legendary Giorgio Moroder & Raney Shockne, Carpenter Brut, Dance With The Dead, OGRE, Lazerhawk, Mega Drive, and Voyag3r — out on May 1 exclusively on Bandcamp.  EP 2 will be released in June.

This album is released in support of and to raise awareness of the documentary, The Rise of The Synths, THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENTARY about ’80s retro and electronic music, the synthwave scene, and ’80s nostalgia and audiovisual collective memories.  The film is currently in production.  This music release is not a part of their original successful Indiegogo campaign.  Stay tuned for updates on the release of EP 2!

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!
