Various - New Wave: 45 Original 45s From The Post Punk Era download mp3 album
Post-punk (originally called new musick) is a broad type of rock music that emerged from the punk movement of the 1970s, in which artists departed from the simplicity and traditionalism of punk rock to adopt a variety of avant-garde sensibilities and diverse influences
Gathered from the Marauder sessions, these songs continue that album's direct-yet-doomy vibe. The duo takes its onic synth pop in a brighter, smoother direction.
This would seem to be the best cd transfer of the killing joke track almost red that I'm aware of and while there are also some great tracks from jozef k, and 23 skidoo front 242 etc the balance of the compilation is tilted too much towards standard disco and away from experimental/jagged post punk for my personal tastes. I think if the 4 discs of the set were bundled together like one of New Wave Class. x box sets the discs would have balanced each other out and i would have rated it very highly.
New Wave music meant a lot of things in the late 1970s. It encompassed pretty much everything that followed the punk movement that still served as an alternative to mainstream pop and rock. There was power-pop, neo-psychedelia, acid-punk, art rock and lots and lots of keyboards. Following the departure of guitarist Rob Dean, Japan secured more sonic space to indulge their experimental whims-from the digital landscapes of UK hit Ghost to the Far East textures of Canton. Throughout, David Sylvian’s warbled, post-Bryan Ferry croon slithers around Mick Karn’s purring fretless bass and Richard Barbieri’s textured keys-a combination both soothing and unsettling.
The following is a list of artists and bands associated with the new wave music genre during the late 1970s and early-to-mid 1980s. The list does not include acts associated with the resurgences and revivals of the genre that have occurred from the 1990s onward. Acts associated with these revivals are found in the list of post-punk revival bands article. Groups and artists with aliases are listed by the first letter in their name, and individuals are listed by their surname. Archived from the original on 12 June 2014. McFarlane, Ian (1999).
Post-punk is emblematic of an era more than a specific style, though with the rise of bands such as Talking Heads, Joy Division, Public Image Limited and Pere Ubu in the late ’70s, common trends began to emerge within their music: pulsing basslines, expressionist abstraction, disco-adjacent rhythms and often an almost oppressive level of darkness. It’s no wonder that goth-rock was born of post-punk. The third album from the surviving members of Joy Division showcased a band that had forged a bright hybrid of hard guitar pop and dance music-even as their commitment to thematic darkness remained very much intact. Adam and the Ants’ lineage branches out into various factions of post-punk and new wave, including Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bow Wow Wow and The Monochrome Set.
