Dpoint was formed in the late 80′s and evolved from experimental electronic music to synth pop to screaming guitar experiments in the early 90′s , only to return to the pure electronic music in the mid 90′s. The band had a “silent” period between the late 90′s and the mid 00′s only to return to music making and performing in 2009! A first digital release was made in late 2010 with the original version of the single "Disco Bitch" followed by the full length album "In memory of the voices no longer in our heads" in early 2011. This also marked the beginning of the bands multi media performances in which the music is supported by visual art displayed on screens behind the band. Dpoint prefer live performances, and has also made use of the internet to stream live virtual concerts on a regular basis. The band invite everyone to enquire about live performances or other forms of collaboration at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the contact form at the bands home page http://dpoint.kodapa.com.
Versailles newest album "Sacrifice" was released last month. "Sacrifice" was produced and written by Dianna St. Hilaire. Dianna has been referred to in the past as the Gothic Tori Amos and is now writing songs that fall between the lines of the 70's and 80's with roots from bands like "Depeche Mode" and "Joy Division". The songs are dark and ominous yet fun and inviting. Synthpop sounds with distinct melody lines and aggressive orchestrations. Songs encompass a wide variety of subject matter including love, vampires, war, the human soul, strength and struggle. Versailles has released multiple albums that have either been well received or just outright hated. Interest in Versailles prior albums spans the globe from places like Japan, Europe, The Middle East, even down into Mexico and South America. Versailles has toured the greater United States with bands like Ego Likeness and Bella Morte and is currently situated in Los Angeles. Versailles was most recently in the film "Black Room Doom" written by producer Kim Fowley of popular 70's band "The Runaways". Versailles is now equipped with three beautiful female members. Dianna St. Hilaire- Vocals, Keytar, Stephanie Rose- Bass, Marie Ilene- Drums. And the newest non-girl member is Shaun Richards- Guitar. Versailles will be performing at Club Vicious in August followed by a performance at this years Pink Parlour Festival in San Diego and a US tour in the fall. Performances include burlesque and cabaret attire, bananas and keytars.
HEALTH’s “Die Slow” really flaunted the band’s trademark haunted melodies over spine-breaking beats, so we’re rather impressed with Tobacco’s transmogrifying remix in which slapping on a gritty ‘90s era balm and turning down the screws resulted in this slowish, hip-banging anthem. Ever dance underwater? Try it out.
I just found this video and it's turned me on to the sounds of Cinnamon Chasers. The music is nice and dreamy, but the video really filled it out for me. Check it out below and then give a listen to a couple of their other tracks.
