Silent Shout via No Fear Of Pop has turned us on to Drug Train, a trio out of Montreal with a great self-titled LP streaming below. Drug Train recalls that magical point in the 80s when synth pop figured out it could get blown-out with bleakness. Vacillating between late Joy Division and industrial pop, it isn't afraid to dot the bleak, trudging synth vistas with moments of danceable abandon, which only makes the frightening moments that much more so. Download over at Bandcamp.
