People Get Real * Alternative New Year Hoedown Mix.
With the resurgence in all things Cold Wave and a renewed interest in the darker side of Synth-Pop and Post-Punk over the last 18 months or so, there was always going to be the danger that a host of half baked pretenders trying to hitch themselves to the bandwagon following the original bandwagon would pollute the internet with more and more watered down interpretations of what they considered to be Cold Wave or Post Punk and that is exactly what has happened, with a few notible exceptions. We've had some brilliant mixes from Richard Fearless, Weatherall and the Mutant Disco radio show, some great compilations from Stones Throw, Angular and New Yorks Wierd Records and a good degree of much overdue success for Factory Floor. With this in mind we're rightly excited here at Tourist to have a brand spanking new synth-flavoured mix from our good friends 'People Get Real' to share with you and a re-up on our sister blog 'Thoughts On Love And Smoking' of the excellent 'Cold Waves & Minimal Electronics' compilation album from last year.
