December 13, 2010 We'll Never Stop Living This Way is a compilation from the independent label Ghostly International. The album's 30 songs demonstrate the label's long history of blending rock and electronic music.
August 31, 2007 Matthew Dear's "Deserter" sounds like a gem plucked from a compilation of early-'80s European synth-pop. His emotionless voice serves Dear's chilly new-wave perfectly, just as the song serves as an ideal introduction to his new album's icy pop excellence.
