Reader Zac Bentz let us know about a couple of new albums released by his project The Electric Witch.
- Assassin is an album of dark synthpop originals with vocalist Marcus Matthews; and
- NEScapism is a collection of Nintendo covers. Bentz notes, “These are the songs that I would let play over and over, ignoring whatever might have been happening on-screen.”
On both albums, Bentz makes extensive use of iPad synths, including Animoog, DM1 and Sunrizer, along with some microKorg vocoding.
The albums are available now for $1 or more. You can stream them for free via the links above, and Bentz has released a free track for each album.
You can download a free track from Assassin, the title track, above.
