The Song of the Day: "White Flag" by Delta Heavy, from the 2016 album Paradise Lost.

Delta Heavy apparently started off as a drum and base duo, but this has more of a house feel, with a little bit of dubstep. The lyrics are about a desperately abject apology to a wronged lover, and the video cleverly plays on the theme by having Lucifer returning to heaven in an attempt to beg forgiveness from God. The pixel artwork (at least some of it by the fantastic Paul Robertson) is beautiful and the singing so emotional that the effect is extremely powerful.

The Song of the Day: "Opium" by The New Division, from the 2011 album Shadows. The song is a great piece of synthpop, but the lyrics are surprisingly dark. The video is also great, obliquely highlighting theme of addiction.

The Song of the Day: "Unforgiving World" by mind.in.a.box, from the 2015 album Memories. Very slick futurepop with prog influences. Although I'm not familiar with the continuing story that runs through the mind.in.a.box albums, sweeping cyberpunkish tracks like this make me want to learn more.

The Song of the Day: "Cheerful Hypocrisy" by Snog, from the 2015 album Compliance™. Once again Snog presents us with a sneering indictment of modern consumer culture and politics, this time with cheery animation!

The Song of the Day: "Gay on the Dancefloor" by Go Fight, from the 2015 album Napalm Baby. A fun, crunchy track by -- in their own words --"possibly the first or second best Electroscuzz Band playing in the Chicago Area."

The Song of the Day: "Lisa" by Bleib Modern, from the 2015 album All Is Fair In Love And War. Echoing, sepulchral goth rock from Bamberg, Germany.

The Song of the Day: "Restless" by New Order, from the upcoming 2015 album Music Complete. The bass seems a bit subdued without Hooky, but nevertheless this song has me optimistic for the sound of the new album. Beautifully shot video, too.

The Song of the Day: "Protector" by Hearts of Black Science, from the 2015 album Signal. I wasn't familiar with this Swedish duo until this year, but I adore every song I've heard from this album. Frigid, layered soundscapes that remind me a bit of Man Without Country. I love the chorus ("Groundswell... Regret springs forth from your mouth... Farewell to the self, a new door opens..."). It may be my imagination, but the band name combined with the chilly music and the obliquely sinister video conjures up images of forbidden Lovecraftian experimentation at an Antarctic facility...

The Song of the Day - "Feed Her to the Wolves" by Ayria, from the 2015 EP Feed Her to the Wolves. The music is up to the high standards Ayria has set in the past, but this time the lyrics are especially good. The song is about a woman who dares to overstep the boundaries society has set for her and pays the ultimate price. I especially like that the lyrics are from the perspective of the punishers rather than the victim or a third party; the narrator (and maybe the listener?) is complicit in the crime. "We left her there as a warning, in case it wasn't clear. Don't misunderstand: we rule by fear."

The Song of the Day: "Slightly Dead" by Santa Hates You, from the 2012 album It's ALIVE. This song is more evidence that side-project Santa Hates You is better than Peter Spilles' main gig, Project Pitchfork. Not only does she add a lot to the music, Jinxy is also ridiculously attractive.

The Song of the Day: "Willkommen im Nichts" (Welcome to Nothing) by Eisbrecher, from their 2004 self-titled album. This song has a rousing, badass feel, with snarling lyrics about disposable, shallow youth.

The Song of the Day: "I'd Rather Break" by Solar Fake, from the 2013 album Reasons to Kill. Excellent synthpop from Germany. While the whole song is worthwhile, it's the brittle-sounding vocals of the first 60 seconds that make the song for me.
