Episode 129: 9/6/2020

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#129’ on it.

We started this one with a batch of new industrial and goth tracks. That was followed with a set of tracks themed around work, etc. in honor of Labor Day. Then we played a set of industrial, post-punk, and noise rock tracks about viruses, infections, etc. because we’re still in the grips of a global pandemic. That was followed with some synthpop tracks, including a mini-set of Soviet Russian synthpop/new wave that was a tribute to the late Oleg Parastaev of Al’yans and NRG. We went all-out for a set of power electronics at midnight, and we closed the show with a mix of shoegaze, experimental, and ambient.
