Episode 253: 6/16/2024

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#253’ on it.

This week’s episode was a milestone for us. Half Machine Lip Moves debuted on June 16, 2017. We celebrated our seventh anniversary by doing nothing particularly special. We started this show with some brand new darkwave and post-punk tracks. The second block was a mix of old and new industrial tracks. The third block was a set of noise rock and no wave. The fourth block was a set of industrial and experimental tracks. The fifth block was a set of summer-themed industrial and EBM. The sixth and final block was a set of experimental and ambient tracks with a summer theme.
