New music this week from Cosmic Belt, Spirit Catcher, Timewriter and the outstanding combo of Fred Everything and AtJazz. This week I also spent a bit of time going through the back catalog of Japanese label UnderTone Recordings. UnderTone features artists such as Naohito Uchiyama, Shigeru Tanabu, and Sinsuke Fujieda, who were all new to me and were very pleasant discoveries.
The new Cosmic Belt album "An Act of Reason" on Glideslope records covers a few different styles, from tech house via prog house to synthpop, with a certain electronic bounciness being the hallmark sound that ties it all together. "Synthetic Dreamer" and "Truth is like the rain" have an 80s twist about them, so I thought I'd throw in a bit of Den Harrow to keep the vibe going. "Broken Radio" is an italo classic from 1985 with proto-electro beats, jaunty keys, and fantastic lyrics about fighting an alien invasion by playing loud dance music on the radio!
