The CD Station is getting a little bulky, so I thought I’d drop my older ‘new buys’ onto a new page.

Not-so-latest finds

The Joy Thieves - A Blue Girl

The Joy Thieves - A Blue Girl (2020)

Well, this one was a surprise and a half! The guys at Armalyte threw this one in for free to make up for delays in them shipping an order I’d placed a couple months prior. Hello? We’re in a pandemic. I wouldn’t care if a disc took a year to get to me. I hadn’t listened to this before receiving it, but upon listening, I have to say it’s not for me. I do appreciate their kindness though!

C-Tec - Darker_Cut

C-Tec - Darker / Cut (2018)

C-Tec went by a few previous names, and under this specific moniker released two albums - Darker in 1997 and Cut in 2000. You’ll probably know a couple of members in this group: Jean-Luc De Meyer from Front 242 and Marc Heal from Cubanate. Armalyte released the two albums as a double disc which I scooped up during Bandcamp’s latest artist-gets-100%-of-profits event.

Favourite track: I Die Tomorrow from Cut. Makes me wish I could pole dance so I could give this song the justice that it deserves.

She Past Away - Disko Anksiyete

She Past Away - Disko Anksiyete (2019)

I’ve been getting into She Past Away more and more recently. They always struck me as a band that doesn’t give me anything new, no surprises or nothing, but consistently puts out bangers nonetheless. This album is stunning. I really love it. Loads of gems on here.

Favourite track: Izole

Cubanate - Kolossus

Cubanate - Kolossus (2019)

Cubanate dropped off the map for nearly 2 decades after Interference in 1998. They swooped back in with Brutalism in 2017, a re-mastering of a bunch of their older songs, before beating the planet into submission with this EP. This little stunner. This, dare I say it, is a masterpiece. Kolossus is a true no-skip album. Okay, it’s super short, whatever. This EP is just nasty.
