Saturday Video Roundup – it’s the 3rd Millennium Sound

Friends, Romans, Countrymen – lend the 3rd Millennium Sound your ears.

I recently introduced 3rd Millennium Sound (3MS), a Facebook group devoted to sharing and discussing a particular strand of really interesting emerging music styles, including Electro-Pop, Darkwave, Industrial, contemporary Trip-Hop, Shoegaze/Dreampop, maybe a little EDM, perhaps some TrancePop, etc.

Group member contributions have been wonderfully illuminating – even I had no idea how many fantastic artists there were working this vein. So today, for Saturday Video Roundup, a sampling. Let’s start with some shimmering ElectroPop hookiness from Sweden’s Melody Club.

Then there’s the epic, anthemic rock cinema of Th Protomen, which may defy description. Just watch and listen.

How about the irrepressibly energetic Dragonette? Your butt will dance.

3MS has a darker side, as well, as you can see from the haunted cabaret genius of IAMX.

One more. Let’s close with a slice of TripPop from one of my favorites, Morgan Kibby’s White Sea.

If you’d like to join and perhaps contribute, go to the 3MS Facebook page and click the button at the top of the page. If you just want to listen, you can tune into the playlist on Spotify anytime. It’s updated continuously.

It’s gorgeous outside. Go have a happy Saturday.
