Episode 231: 9/10/2023

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#231’ on it.

We kicked this show off with some brand new post-punk, synthpunk, etc. tracks. The second set was mostly new industrial tracks, including what was going to be an exclusive premier of a new Zwaremachine track, but alas, didn’t happen because of a recent illness. (And RIP Zwaremachine’s Dein Offizier.) The third block of the show was a set of synthpop-leaning songs. The fourth set was goth, deathrock, and post-punk songs. The fifth block saw us revisit the set of songs followed by a band/artist who named themselves after the previous one. And we wrapped up the show with some ambient, etc.
