Handful of Snowdrops – Groundwork For Fundamentals (Demo Archive Volume One • 1984 – 1986)
When you hear an album like that you just realize where it all began- actual 80’s synthpop and heavy electronics that so many artist now are trying to imitate (some successfully). This is one of my absolute favorite genres- this wonderful mixture of darkwave, post-punk and drama. I’m always excited to find such brilliant 80’s recordings, they are just the real thing. If you like what you’re hearing, check out Vol. 2 of the demo recordings by Handful of Snowdrops- it’s called “Storm Debris & Astronaut Remains” and includes songs recorded between 1989 and 1992. It can be found and purchased on their Bandcamp page.
