2008 seems to certainly be a big year for synth heavy releases. Hot Chip, Cut Copy, Ladytron, and Ruby Isles all have punched out albums that will undoubtedly clog my best of 2008 list. If The 5 Cents, The Legends, and Casiotone for the Painfully Alone also release records this year, as expected (or hoped), then a 2008 synth-plurality is underway. Somehow The Faint missed my radar and surprised me with a new record, Fasciinatiion, as well. I haven’t heard the record yet but I hope it continues with the Sister Machine Gun type vector that The Faint had started with, in my opinion, their best-to-date “Wet From Birth”. This is a new song from the August show at Terminal 5. A shout-out goes out to SoDakian operative Skillman for help in accruing this recording.

A slew of great photos taken at the show can be found at Brooklyn Vegan.
