>inb4 some faggot posts Chvrches

Also, this one is great
>>
What was the first synthpop album?

And try Chvrches
>>
>>50233339
Already listened to Chvrches, The Mother We Share Was Great but everything else is just bland, it's like I'm hearing 9 different versions of Gun
>>
>>50233339
Kraftwerk maybe
>>
>>50233258
Shaking the Habitual.
>>
>>50233300
That's not synthpop, that's dream pop.
>>
>>50233300

what the fuck do you have against chvrches?
>>
>>50233412
Not really, that's more art poppy
>>
What, exactly, is synthpop? Does the soundtrack from Drive qualify? If so, can you recommend some other albums with that kind of a feel to them?
>>
>>50233532

you might wanna check out the soundtrack for Bronson, since it's by the same director and has a bunch of synth tracks.

Your silent face by New Order is my favorite song from it
>>
>>50233532
>Why, exactly, is synthpop?

Pop music characterized primarily by a synthesizer being the dominant instrument along with a singer, often with a drum machine.

>Does the soundtrack from Drive qualify?

Most of the songs count, specifically as "synthwave", which is a sort of synthpop revival focusing on a "retro eighties" aesthetic.

>If so, can you recommend some other albums with that kind of a feel to them?

Kavinsky - OutRun
Miami Nights 1984 - Turbulence
Lazerhawk - Visitors
Com Truise - In Decay

>>50233596

Lights is pretty good, she just released her newest album not too long ago.
>>
>>50233719
Trisomie 21
>>
>>50233719
Don't really now any other darwave artist beside Trust. Could you suggest us something?
>>
>>
>>50233751
This is an incredible album but I'm almost certain that it isn't synthpop.
>>
>>50233751
>>50233838
Indietronica, most certainly
>>
>>50233811
Never thought of this album in that light.

The majority of the tracks aren't synthpop, but Rhinestone Eyes, Empire Ants, On Melancholy Hill, and Plastic Beach could easily be argued as synthpop.
>>
>>50233300
But that's a boring album and it's not even synth pop

John Maus - We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves, however, is an incredibly fun and beautiful synth pop album and essential for anyone who likes the genre.
>>
>>50233417
fun fact: Christian 'Megazord' Oldham, the person who help release/record Exmilitary also did the artwork for this cover
>>
>>50233751

it would help if we could get a title too, you know
>>
>>50233885
>Boring album

Untrue

>Not even synth pop

Correct.

check out the OST for Hotline Miami, it's pretty fucking good
>>
>>50233838
>>50233851

What? Its pop music made exclusively out of synths and voice, melod. It also has some EDM vibes here and there but thats it (Wrinklecarver).
>>
>>50233890
Born Gold - Bodysongs

try using google reverse image search if someone doesn't post the name of an album, works like a charm
>>
http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=N2_KggXVXWM

dusk to dawn is pretty good and obscure
>>
>>50233890
Get a little what?
>>
>>50233795
Wolfsheim

I'm listening to it for the first time, so far it sounds like chiptune.
>>
Is Austra considered synthpop?
