The Song of the Day: "Age After Age" by Frozen Plasma, from the 2015 album DEKADENZ. Frozen Plasma has some clunky songs (e.g., perving on a 16-year-old girl in "Murderous Trap"), but when they're good, they're brilliant. This song has a particularly epic scope that appeals.

The Song of the Day: "We Flood the Night" by FEMM, from the 2014 album FEMM-isation. Japanese club music by PVC-encased animate mannequins. BAO BAO B-B-B-BAO.

The Song of the Day: "Kasvetli Kutlama" (Somber Celebration) by She Past Away, from the 2012 album Belirdi Gece. While a fairly recent song, this Turkish band really has the classic 80s goth rock sound down. The bass guitar is superb, and the synths have an almost medieval sound. Shame about the grammatical error in the band's name, though.

Sounds badass. Been listening to a lot of  Indian pop and Russian house music lately.

The Song of the Day: "Sex on a Stick" by Junksista, from the 2014 album High Voltage Confessions. Another fun new video from these guys. (From a day job perspective I admire how they handle their promotions, too. Good use of the Internet to get their name out, a lot of bands could learn from them.)

The Song of the Day: "The Great Commandment" by Camouflage, from the 1988 album Voices & Images. I'm not sure how I missed out on these guys in the 80s, but better late than never. The Great Commandment is apparently their biggest hit, and I think it compares favorably with modern synthpop as well.

The Song of the Day: "Squeeze My Heart" by Accessory, from the 2013 album Resurrection. I'm not too familiar with this German duo, but this song delivers a compelling mix of EBM and trance. Autotune is a turn-off for some, but I love the "malfunctioning android" feel of the female vocals.

The Song of the Day: "Phantasmagoria" by Ashbury Heights, from the 2014 album Looking Glass Society. This song has a fun carnival atmosphere, and the incredibly attractive Swedish synthpop duo have been quoted as saying it's heavily inspired by Edgar Allan Poe. "Musically it's pretty much a giant homage to Sisters of Mercy and the Cure clad in Halloween ball attire."

The Song of the Day: "The Renegade" by Star Industry, from the 2015 album The Renegade. Brand new gothic rock from Belgium, I like the "Under the red sky, we cross the Rubicon today" line, that's a pretty epic image. The Valentine references bring Sisters of Mercy to mind for some reason.

The Song of the Day: "Dead Wrong" by FEMM, from the 2014 album Femm-Isation. Great elecro-pop brought to you by animate, immaculately choreographed mannequins. This is the only J-Pop I've been compelled to buy in a decade.

The Song of the Day: "A Dark Place" by The New Creatures. I was unable to find an album for this song, but like a lot of other people I discovered it on Cleopatra's 1996 Goth Box compilation. Great old school goth rock from New York.

The Song of the Day: "Low Violet" by The Merry Thoughts, from the 1996 album Psychocult. I'm gonna give it to you straight, this sounds a LOT like it could be an unreleased track from The Sisters of Mercy's Floodland. Not an incredibly original sound within the goth rock scene, but is "Hey, you sound like a really good band at their peak!" really an insult?
