NECRO POST!!!!

I've really been digging on synthwave lately. My favorite related act is Makeup and Vanity Set. Check out his Charles Park series of albums (vols. I, II, and III) for some good tunes to not walk alone at night to.

I'm also looking for recommendations -- I love the sounds of the acts listed above, but I'm not super into dance-y tunes. I'd love to hear some other stuff (like Makeup and Vanity Set, I guess) that's pointed in more of an ambient or soundtracky kind of direction.

So, more Carpenter, less Brut. Suggestions?

You'd do well to check out "College". This is one of my favorites of theirs- really nails the 80s sound and feel.

Been a sucker for this stuff for awhile now.

Few I haven't seen mentioned yet:
Thought Beings
Drab Majesty (Kinda more post-punk/darkwave...still some real retro 80s vibe though)
Games
Tesla Boy
Jensen Sportag

I actually got into modular trying to break out of making this stuff...but...nope.. :)
