Death By Neon
At first I've been attracted by the dreamy cover artwork, then the artist name that really speak to me as much as sci-fi movies from my childhood.
But when I've first attempt to have a listen I've really be amazed by how great was the first and the second songs of the album, Spires and Datsun Sundown respectively. So dreamy solid synth pop in the pure tradition of the eighties late summer nights cinematic songs.
The next day I've managed to listen to the complete album, including the instrumentals burn onto the same CD-R.
And that's about it, the heavy Mike-Tyson-like punch in my brain that was the third and the fourth tracks are totally mind-blowing! Done in a different tone and mood than previous ones and with a deepest love for dreamwave synth pop and particularly Timecop1983.
If you are a Timecop1983 lover, or simply a dreamwave and/or synth pop lover, please do a favor to yourself and take a listen to the following cues: 3, 4, 5 and 8. You just can't be disappointed, this is A-Grade gold stuff that for sure deserve to be a future major artist of the synth pop scene in my humble opinion!
And instead of Timecop1983, Chad Williamson (as Moonrunner83) is doing anything alone! Music composition and performing, most of the lyrics, vocals on each songs, mixing and editing and even the beautiful cover artwork!
This is seriously adictive retro stuff and Moonrunner83 deserve to be well more recognized and listened!
Keep up the good work, I really can't wait for the next album!
Favorite track: A Kiss In The Night.
