OMD Tour / Album & The Punishment of Luxury

OMD – Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark –
Tour &

Das Album The Punishment of Luxury
klingt heute deutlich mehr nach Field-Recording und nach älteren Synthpop-Wurzeln und dadurch weniger seicht aber dennoch ästhetisch-schön.
Zumindest nach den ersten Audiodemos zu urteilen, die man aktuell finden kann.

the new OMD seems to go back but to a history of sampling. yes, there was sampling but to OMD it is sort of new way they are using it – like other bands (F242, Cabaret Voltaire, Depeche Mode)..
sounds a lot less „europop“ and more grown up. but not retro – as it may sound like when reading the band list. to me it is a new approach (from what I can listen to right now). 

sampling, machine guns, harmonizer-electro voice. all new to OMD.
