Episode 232: 9/17/2023

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#232’ on it.

We started this show with some new post-punk and darkwave tracks. The second block was a set of moody post-punk songs. The third block was a set of noisy and dirty industrial and power electronics. The fourth and fifth blocks were a mix of goth, industrial, darkwave, post-punk, synthwave, etc. tracks that I played in my DJ sets at the Club Nevermore event on September 9th. And we finished up the show with a set of shoegaze and experimental tracks.
