Sonic Boom-erang

Isabout time that 80's Brit synth pop came back in vogue.

Actually, there are a lot of bands getting into an 80's revival mood. Two of my faves are the North Carolina band The Rosebuds (album: "Night of the Furies") and one of the Swedish invasion bands The Shout Out Louds (album: "Our Ill Wills"). Another one of the Swedes, Jens Lekman, is rightly compared to Morrissey (album: "Night Falls on Kortedala"), which, of course, means I love his music. The Rosebuds are a particularly interesting band because they did a total about-face from being a more typical indie-rock/country/folk outfit (a typical mix these days) to sounding like New Order reincarnated.

i'm not familiar with the rosebuds but i hear lots of bands exploring that new wave style on college radio.
