I saw Adam Tristar on a goth club night headlining after like ten other concerts. It was a duo performing live and they stood out so much from the others, like it would be a professional act after a list of DIY bedroom bands. Well, that’s probably a pretty good approximation of what happened.
The music is all along the goth aesthetics with electronic coldwave synths. Hits close to my heart.
It’s so strange that I haven’t made note of Minuit Machine before considering how much I listen to their records recently. It’s a constant item in my cyberpunk playlists. It’s an amazing blend of electro and goth moods resulting in this beautiful dark wave atmosphere that I just strive in.
This album is so not interesting. Just wanted to make a note here: I don’t feel this to be a goth album at all, it’s way more of a new wave (sometimes future pop) dressed as goth. Probably that’s the very reason I don’t like it. Under this darkwave look I don’t feel any real content and value. There’s also this trend of new goth music incorporating a heavy influence from synthwave. Sometimes I like it, in this case I don’t. I compare this record to everything by Cigarettes After Sex. *smirk
