MOLOKO+: Selftitled LP
Here is one of my personal favorite darkwave records. It's a 1986 selftitled, self-released album by a band called Moloko + from Germany. There isn't a lot of info about these guys. They released this LP as well as some songs on some German tape and vinyl compilations in the early to mid 80s. Almost every song here is great. From darkwave to dark electro to post punk to standard goth to more minimalist fare, these guys knew damn well how to make a classic album. My favorite songs are Fields of War, Falling Apart, and Eat & Starve.
Fun Fact: I saw this in a local record store and didn't buy it for almost a month because I thought the Russian writing at the top said "NAMBLA" when I glanced at it. Of course, common sense should have told me that those guys would probably not release an album that would be found in the goth section, but that's what happens when you thumb through records at a pace that's too quick for thought. Um, anyway, if you like darkwave or synth-heavy post punk (such as the Eleven Pond LP I previously posted), download this one!
The tracklist is:
Fields of War
Eat and Starve
In Meinen Taschen...
