focus : week 37 – Ladytron and God Module

focused music news for week 37 : September 11th to 17th 2011

September 13 – This week is all about cult followings. First up is the electropop/synthpop/shoegazing band from Liverpool, Ladytron. With their fifth studio album Gravity the Seducer pushing the their sound that so many bands have tried to imitate. Ladytron is a name that is as common as pie and with plenty of die-hard fans supporting Ladytron this album is bound to make waves across the music scene.

September 13 – Next up we go a tad bit darker, but the cult following is just as rabid, God Module releases their new album Séance this week. I was shocked by how many of my friends are obsessed with them as I wouldn’t peg most of them for even liking the band. The new album Séance tones down the aggrotech allowing an identity to be formed, this separates the album from the countless other bands in the genre.  Yet, this album still has the God Module spooky sound that I think is what draws in all the hoards. Listen to a track from the new album on YouTube!

Both bands are starting tours in September across North America and God Module is even heading to the seas for Goth Cruise.
