In this era of troubled economics and right-wing punditry, the poor and minorities are as much under siege as ever.

Gerrymandered districts have resulted in far right Republican majorities in many communities around the nation. In North Carolina, the “artificial” districts designed to produce Republican majorities have had a devastating effect on public education, voter rights, medicare expansion, and access to women’s healthcare and abortion facilities.

New York shoegazers Wry Climate premiere new track "Fire Escape Games" on PopMatters.

New York’s Wry Climate inventively updates ‘90s shoegaze riffs with notes of dreampop and bits of noise, turning their subtly complex tunes into something much more than the sum of their parts. The group has earned comparisons from Deerhunter to Dirty Projectors to Pavement, meaning they’re in good, eclectic company.

We have been featuring a lot of synth pop lately, which is inevitable as synth pop has been having its greatest resurgence since the 1980s.

White Prism (a.k.a. Johanna Cranitch) is very much a part of that neo synth scene. That said “Fool” actually had other inspirations. Cranitch recently told Idolator that “[she] was listening to a bit of Paula Abdul and Mariah Carey‘s first record when I wrote this. I guess it’s about unrequited love. That vibe you get into where you like someone so much that you just stare at the phone hoping they’ll call, but you can’t call them because you don’t know how they really feel about you.” Now Ladytron has taken the song and sped up the tempo, upped the pop quotient and added some additional dancey beats.
