The Rain Within:
The Rain Within is a synthpop project from Charlottesville, Virginia. Andy Deane (The Rain Within) draws inspiration for his music from his love of 80’s horror movies and romantic comedies, evoking creations within both sides of the spectrum, from horrific to the beautiful.
His most recent album is entitled “Dark Drive” and was released in September of 2016. “Dark Drive” is comprised of ten tracks that showcase the various sources in which he draws inspiration.
“So if you've ever lived in the eighties and get all grumpy thinking about how much modern times suck and how much you wish you could go back to arguably the most colorful decade of all time, then perhaps ‘Dark Drive’ is the album you've been seeking for your entire life. Then again you could just be a casual listener looking for the perfect synthpop/synthwave blend. Either way, check it out; this guy's good.” – Steven Gullotta (Brutal Resonance).
Started in 2003, Mr. Kitty is the electronic/synthpop project of Forrest LeMarie. Mr. Kitty has numerous released, but his latest release features fifteen-tracks and is entitled “A.I.”
“A.I. does something rare in which it brings the high energy performance of Mr. Kitty into a studio album. The feelings that have taken over me the two times in which I have seen Mr. Kitty on stage came back to me with this record: it is visceral, captivating, and dense, with soft tender moments of quiet introspection between hard beats.” – Susana Meza (Spill Magazine).
