As also has been somewhat leaked on Facebook we can expect a new album from Covenant soon, more details below:
1.5 years have passed since their last album “Modern Ruin” was released and now the band is working on the next one. The title is “Leaving Babylon” and scheduled for early 2013.
The band also welcomes a new live member in form of Daniel Jonasson on keyboards, replacing Joakim Montelius. Joakim has decided to stop touring but will remain as a member in the studio. Daniel Jonasson is also a member of the Swedish EBM band Dupont.
The band are currently touring the States and later in September they will perform a special set of shows on their “Dreams Of A Cryotank 2012 Debut Album Tour”, a full-length show with early material, rarities and a handful of hits.Photo credit: P.Duvander, 2010

The Belgian electronic act Psy’Aviah have released quite a cute animated video for the track “On My Own”.
“On My Own” is nominated for an HMMA 2012 award in category POP. We asked Emily Weeks to make an animated music video for this track based on her earlier work (e.g. her animated short “Sweater Wolf” @ https://vimeo.com/23228829, made during her time with the California Institute of the Arts). We love the distinct drawing style and her ability to tell a story using her animation skills, we hope you’ll enjoy this music video for “On My Own”, which is tightly linked to the meaning of the song.
Swedish small town popgroup from mid eighties.
Stubb, Anders & Richy
80s synth pop band with influences of mainly German and English synth pop masters.
A brand new video from My Killing Game
Music by My Killing Game
Directed by Markus Bustad
Produced and released in august 2012
In 2006, Markus Bustad felt he wanted to create a music project where he could completely be himself, and make the pop songs he always aimed for. He felt that the best pop songs were made by combining the typical sounds from the 80’s, with more modern indierock influenses. The first couple of years were mostly spent developing the project, getting to know the technology and increasing his production skills. In the summer of 2012, everything fell into place. The 5 track demo/EP ”New Beginnings” got available on youtube and soundcloud, he got voted into the finals of the GP Scen competition by its jury and started promoting himself in a way he had never done before. Markus decided to record a full length album, with the goal to make every song so beautifully done that it makes you feel like you are listening to a ”best of”-album with one of your favorite artists. Will he succeed? Will he fail miserably? Follow My Killing Game’s journey here on facebook and on www.youtube.com/user/mykillinggame

TWINS NATALIA are an Anglo-German collective of creative minds from various artistic fields “working together in order to create some beautiful, catchy yet melancholic and substantial electropop”. The brainchild of Steve Lippert, they also feature Marc Schaffer, Dave Hewson, Julie Ruler and Sharon Abbott. TWINS NATALIA’s debut album, which provisionally features songs such as ‘C’est La Weekend’, ‘Freedom’, ‘In My Arms Again’ and ‘Scary Monster’, is expected to be completed later in the year
Composed using drum machines such as the Boss Doctor Rhythm, Roland TR-606 and TR-808 alongside synths like the wonderfully ‘swimmy’ Crumar Performer, Korg MS-20, Korg Poly-61 and Roland SH-2, the metronomic structures of TWINS NATALIA’s songs are the backbone to a strangely humanic sound brimming with neu romance. Releasing their work on Marc Schaffer’s own Anna Logue Records who issued the lost POEME ELECTRONIQUE material as a collection entitled ‘The Echoes Fade’, TWINS NATALIA’s only other recording so far has been the gorgeously sequenced ‘Destiny’ on ‘The Anna Logue Years – Fifth Anniversary Compilation’ from 2010 which celebrated the label’s back catalogue and included cult acts such as CAMERA OBSCURA (the Minimal Wave duo, NOT the hipster Glaswegians!)
