Rather than struggle with defining whatever it is that Tinted Windows should be under as far as genre goes, I went and bought a new album, one that needs no definition of genre because they are the genre (or at least spawned it).
Like that favorite meal (which may have included bacon and eggs) or a nice bath, Depeche Mode's new album, Sounds of the Universe is comforting in its familiarity. Perhaps not as dark lyrically or musically - the synthesizers seem more sparse than in previous albums (and I might be imagining that)- but still very typical. Dave Gahan's voice is the same. A good album and one that should appeal to Depeche Mode fans.
If the music isn't as dark, they made up for it with the video for the song Wrong:
Depeche Mode - "Wrong" (official music video)
Kidnapping always makes a good story line for a music video. Uh....yeah.
Delta Spirit goes one better with their new video, including a murder.
La Blogotheque also did a takeaway show with Delta Spirit which was pretty cool. You can check that out here.
Fantastic set of performances and no one gets killed.
