Carpenter Brut is great, Midnight Danger has put out some good stuff this year, and I think Dance With The Dead may be my favorite artist out of the entire genre.

Welp, I know what I'm listening to tomorrow. Thanks for the recommendations!

Just remembered, Com Truise and Lost Years have some good material too. Don't ask me for specific songs though :p

I have listened to Leather Teeth quiet a lot over the past months... love the cheesy hairmetal influences...

The king of this stuff will always be Legowelt, he isn't exactly "Synthwave", but he is doing 70s and 80s style straight forward synth music since like 1999 and has a super prolific output under like 12 different names and styles... he is a top 3 artist of mine I think



(these track are like 15 years old now I guess)

The dude still uses a Amiga 600 in his studio, so that's enough reason to love him :p



That Studio Tour is pretty nuts, SO MANY synths

I only recently discovered this genre, but I've come to really enjoy artists like Carpenter Brut, Dance with the Dead, and (in particular) DEADLIFE:

I'll be keeping a close eye on this thread for more recommendations.

This thread hasn't seen activity in a while, so I thought I'd mention an album I recently purchased:


Plumegeist has done various kinds of electronic music, but 'Ghoul Jacker II' in particular has some nice examples of synthwave/darkwave.
