There are a lot of Boy Harsher tracks we love, but we had this one on repeat for so long.
The Smiths – Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now
The melodies of the guitar and the lyrics full of nostalgia match with many ideas in my head.
Pale Blue – Love
Favorite projects lately.
Depeche Mode – Enjoy The Silence
Biggest hit of DM but one of our favorites, the melodies, the vocals, the feel; all of it, is perfect.
The Organ – Memorize The City
The organ was one of the first girl bands I found when I was in high school, they sound a lot like the smiths.
Alphaville – Big In Japan
A track that reminds me of being on a road trip with my parents. When I was a kid and they let me choose from their cds for a road trip I would always pick this one.
Lebanon Hanover – Babes Of The 80’s
Wonderful track by Lebanon Hanover, simplicity and feel at its finest. We listen to this anytime, anywhere.
Curses, Chinaski – Forever
This killer track by my good friend Curses and Chinaski. Love this tune and play it every time since I heard it.
A Perfect Circle – Judith
Love everything from A Perfect Circle, Tool & Puscifer since I was young. We especially like this one when drunk.
Duran Duran – Out Of My Mind
Reminds me when I was a kid and my father used to play this track a lot. One of the best ones and with not enough credit of DD for my taste.
Mufti ft. Vongold – Silence EP (Her Majesty’s Ship)
Her Majesty’s Ship celebrates release number 50 with a fantastic new EP from Mufti ft. Vongold that will be preceded by two singles – ‘Inverse’ on November 6th, then ‘Moonstruck’ on November 20th, before the full EP lands on November 27th with a superb music video to accompany ‘Silence’.
Mufti is Bernardo Barrera, a multi instrumentalist producer from Guadalajara, Mexico. This project comes after being part of Los Fugazzi, and finds him focus more on rock variants and 80’s music. A mix of electronics with disco, electro, EBM and post punk define the sound. Vongold, meanwhile, is Nora Cam, a DJ and producer also from Guadalajara and influenced by genres such as disco, new wave and various girl bands. Her sounds seek to highlight the female voice, merging it with indie dance for an extra special edge.
The idea behind this EP, which draws on the influence of bands like Depeche Mode, Lebanon Hanover and The Kvb, was to “convey how we are constantly feeling anxious and chased by our failures. And even if we need to scream, the pressure and idealisation of modern life immobilises us and shuts us up.”
Opening up the release is the superb ‘Silence’, a slow motion but high impact deep disco cut with a fat bassline and sensuous vocals. ‘Inverse’ is more punchy, with rugged bass and drums run through by withering sci-fi synths and deadpan vocals from Vongold. ‘Totem’ is an excellent fusion of dark wave styles and crashing hits, it’s a new form of electronic punk that draws you deep into its own unique sound world. Last of all is ‘Moonstruck’, a prowling late night groove filled with tension and menace
