Placebo - MTV Unplugged (1 h 14 min) 2015 = great !

The sound quality is decent (although too subtle a 5.1 mix for me) and the visuals are amazing when they get going. Some excellent re-workings of a near-perfect setlist (imo), and not simply acoustic (in fact, not 100% acoustic at all). Would have been incredible being there, although not too close!

On the 19th of August 2015, Placebo performed a unique one-off show for MTV Unplugged at the London Studios in the UK. Here we present the results of this incredible show.
The band were encased in spectacular LED box during the performance, from where they belted out some of their most well-loved tracks such as 'The Bitter End' and 'Every You Every Me.'

I’ve recently discovered a whole new music genre but my favourite from it so far is Gunship. Pure 1980s nostalgia and it is so damn good.

Oh Yeah GUNSHIP are great. The video (and song) for When You Grow Up, Your Heart Dies is brilliant.

After Gunship, I would say The Midnight are the obvious next choice.

Gunship threw me down a synth wave rabbit hole a couple of years back, of the many other like-minded artists I discovered, I especially latched on to Neon Nox

Less vocals and more retro - instrumental synth with a bit of widdly-widdly guitar, but still oozing that 80s nostalgia vibe.

I don't mind a bit of Synth Wave myself and love Gunship.

This is a particular favourite of mine and Dance With The Dead are well worth checking out.



Another recommendation is The Night Flight Orchestra and while not really Synth Wave they do have a great 80's AOR vibe to them.

Good shout about Scandroid Bish. I was going to post about them this morning. Their albums are great with a few familiar covers as hooks to pull you in like covers of Shout, Thriller and even the The Force theme from Star Wars. But the quality of the tracks is really good. As with nearly all synthwave albums that feature vocals on some tracks the albums come in standard and instrumental versions.

I would also recommend Timecop1983 for those wanting to dip a toe into synthwave. Their albums are great and even. Discovered other artists just from following up on who appeared on their albums such as The Bad Dreamers, LeBrock, and The Midnight was a good introduction for me. Also discovered At 1980 because of the Josh Dally collaboration, as he sings on more than half the tracks on their album.
