It's here, it's here, it's finally here! Gencore Tech Alliance have finally released their first full-length album!
"Oh No! It's MicroSol!" is a synth pop record with a twist – it blends the sounds inspired by the 80s and the 90s with the modern, as well as elements of different genres such as downtempo, chiptunes, ambient techno and electronic rock, with often offbeat and rather obscure vocals to boot. Plus an added dash of „Machine Age Voodoo”-era SPK, OLD’s (you know, them Old Lady Drivers) „Formula”, Godflesh and Boards of Canada, too!
The album concludes with a massive space ambient piece, the second instalment in the "Captain Nob and the Space Voyage" series: "Captain Nob and the Rift King".
With this release Gencore Tech Alliance welcomes a new band member, Sixth Maggot, to the fold. This guy wrote a bunch of great songs for the album and is a great addition to our line-up. Shout out to Sixth Maggot!
