Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

The classic gothic synthpop sounds of the 80s have long been imitated to varying results. Josh Ascalon succeeds with his debut as The Great Void because of the obvious level of care he’s put into Shift Age. Avoiding the modern conveniences of software synths, plug-ins and digital sequencing, this is a record defined by its phenomenal production as much as its strength of songs. The Great Void has found a that sweet spot between Moroder’s Italo Disco jams and Sisters of Mercy’s more brooding industrial grooves, resulting in a menacing collection of dance anthems. While Shift Age features contributions from bigger names like Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo and Twin Shadow’s George Lewis, no one steals the show from Ascalon.
