Eoghan Moylan Releases ‘I Love It When You Lie To Me’

'I Love It When You Lie to Me' is indie musician Eoghan Moylan's latest offering that was released on December 2, 2022. The alt-pop and indie-synth-rock tune is about paranoia and struggling with the toxicity it creates in relationships. He wrote the melody and music while trying to deal with his flooding apartment in Granada. It took a few months to finish the track as he wanted to capture the feeling of constantly second guessing yourself and your partner as best as he could.

Love Hultén’s latest custom synth build looks like something Darth Vader would commission

“Something really dark and retro sci-fi” is what Hultén says his client wanted, and the Nostrx2 synth is precisely that. Designed keeping the interiors of the USCSS Nostromo spaceship from the 1979 Alien movie in mind, The Nostrx2 is built around the Syntrx2 from Erica Synths, albeit with a darker vibe. The custom build (which took a total of 12 weeks to put together) also features a modified LVX Meris modular delay system, an Analog Heat distortion filter, an all-black Arturia KeySteo 32-key MIDI Controller, and a monitor displaying glitchy visuals as you play from Critter & Guitari.

Synth Single Review: "Retrospect" by Jokerhed

Karl is a longtime freelancer who's passionate about music, art, and writing. Jokerhed’s Retrospect combines musical tension and angular motion. The track begins as tight, medium-low synth with a digital quality slowly vibrates into open space. Angular bass oscillates thickly and drums pulse smoothly. The percussion is massively powerful as dense bass trembles and shifts below taut, angular synth that growls in trembling lines.
