bloghouse for the post-blog era

Let's say I really liked shimmery 80s-and-early-90s-influenced  synthpop, with meticulous production and beautiful analog synths, dreamy or subdued vocals, and a hint of shoegaze inspiration, and felt like maybe the best recent examples of that were several years ago, stretching from 2004-2011. What should I be listening to these days to think, "This never went away, I just stopped paying attention?" [more inside]

Looking for women

Lately I've been hooked on La Roux and Gossip, as well as Tegan and Sara. Where else can I find this sorta dance-pop / synthpop / electropop / indie rock mixed with dance punk plus strong female vocals and hopefully good lyrics? [more inside]

Modern music that sounds like the eighties?

I love 80s New Wave synthpop in a completely non-ironic way. I came of age with this music, and it's still a big part of my life. What contemporary music has that mid-80s synthpop vibe?

But The Postal Service would be right at home in 1984.) Here are some examples of what I'm looking for: [more inside]
