MG – “Europa Hymn (Andy Stott Remix)”

Depeche Mode founding member Martin Gore released his second solo album back in April, a moody 16-track electronic piece entitled MG. Today, fellow Englishman and techno producer Andy Stott put out a remix of Gore’s MG track “Europa Hymn.” What was once three minutes of Gore showing off all the instruments he can play i… More »

MG – “Europa Hymn” Video

Depeche Mode founding member Martin Gore previously announced his solo album MG and shared the single “Europa Hymn.” It’s a calm, galactic song that has the “sci-fi” and “filmic” qualities that Gore says represent the sound of the entire album. In that vein, the video for the clip is a simple, drawing-based clip directed by… More »

Johnny Marr – “I Feel You” Video

For a new Record Store Day single, the former Smiths axe wizard Johnny Marr has recorded a version of Depeche Mode’s 1993 single “I Feel You.” The Marr version switches out Depeche Mode’s synth-throb for guitar crunch and turns it into a pretty straightforwardly bluesy Brit-rock song. The new video, from director David Barnes, i… More »

Johnny Marr – “I Feel You” (Depeche Mode Cover)

Johnny Marr has shared a recorded version of his cover of Depeche Mode’s 1993 track “I Feel You,” which he’s been playing on tour over the past year. He gives the Songs Of Faith And Devotion track a little bit of a punchier polish, but largely plays it straight. The song will be released o… More »

MG (Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore) – “Europa Hymn”

Martin Gore has been the second banana in Depeche Mode since pretty much the moment the group began, though he’s also sung lead on some of their best songs, like “Somebody” and “Home.” Next month, he’ll release a solo instrumental album that he recorded under the name MG. Gore recorded the album in his home… More »

Watch Johnny Marr Cover Depeche Mode’s “I Feel You” In Edmonton

Johnny Marr performed in Edmonton last night and covered Depeche Mode’s “I Feel You” off 1993’s Songs Of Faith And Devotion. Marr premiered the cover in Missoula on Monday. This is fairly well-shot for being an amateur fan video, and it’s not at all hard to hear Marr’s take on the classic song, which begi… More »

The Best Soundtrack Moments Of October 2014: The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, White Bird In A Blizzard, Gone Girl, & More

It’s finally the time of year where there are more movies in theaters than I have time to see, especially in NYC with earlier premieres. That’s not a bad place to be, because a lot of them have been good and a lot of them have used music well. It was only once I’d finished… More »

Watch Depeche Mode Play “Enjoy The Silence” From New Live In Berlin Concert Film

Depeche Mode employed longtime visual director Anton Corbijn to film two concerts at O2 World Berlin last November, and he’s compiling his footage into a new concert film called Live In Berlin. The movie’s out on DVD 11/17, but the band shared a clip of “Enjoy The Silence” to stoke our anticipation. And it does! More »

Depeche Mode – “My Little Universe (Boys Noize Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Whether we’re talking football or world war, Germany and England traditionally don’t get along all that well, but German bass producer Boys Noize feels like a perfect choice to remix Depeche Mode’s dreary synthpop. That’s exactly what Boys Noize has done, transforming “My Little Universe” from Depeche’s 2013 LP Delta Machine into a booming, skittering,… More »

SixToes – “Low Guns” (Feat. Dave Gahan) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

The word “cinematic” gets tossed around a lot for the sake of musical hyperbole, but it’s a fine fit for the awkwardly named London outfit SixToes, especially when their ornately dramatic folk-rock is set to a video like this one. The visuals for “Low Guns,” the sextet’s recent collaboration with Depeche Mode singer Dave Gaha… More »

Photos: Depeche Mode @ Staples Center, Los Angeles 10/2/13

Depeche Mode capped an impressive three night run at the Staples Center in the midst of their tour for their latest album, Delta Machine. Dave Gahan owned the stage with his assortment of twirls and effective use of the microphone stand, as his stage presence is in a league of its own. Martin Gore also… More »

Depeche Mode – “Should Be Higher” Live Video

Even if you’re the type who doesn’t go to too many arena-sized shows, Depeche Mode is the sort of bigger band you should seriously consider going to see when they’re near you. Their catalog is lousy with classics, and even when they’re playing newer songs, they bring the sort of presence that you can’t fake. More »

Ghost B.C. – “Waiting for the Night” (Depeche Mode Cover)

The theatrical Swedish metal band Ghost B.C. have already shown that they have a way with the incongruous cover song; we posted their version of Abba’s “I’m A Marionette” back in January. And apparently, the Japanese version of their new album Infestissumam includes a cover of Depeche Mode’s gloomy 1990 synth ballad “Waiting For TheMore »

Depeche Mode – “Soothe My Soul” Video

If one had to invent a film genre for Depeche Mode’s “Sooth My Soul” video, perhaps it would be New Wave Voyeurism. The black and white clip plays like a choppy, living slideshow, all square-shaped peep holes viewing the band performing in shadows, slithering snakes and glimpses of naked bodies — although, primarily stomachs, giving… More »

Stream Depeche Mode Delta Machine

At this point, Depeche Mode are pretty much new-wave synthpop’s Rolling Stones. They have such a deep and unfuckwithable catalog of hits that they could continue touring arenas until their bodies just completely give up. Nobody really needs them to keep recording new music, and yet they keep doing it. Their latest album Delta MachineMore »

Depeche Mode – “Soothe My Soul”

Depeche Mode’s new album Delta Machine looms, and the band has already been making the late-night TV rounds, playing the brooding first single “Heaven.” And now they’ve finally let loose with another song from the album. “Soothe My Soul” is a shimmering, glammy synth-rock stomp, with some of the driving grandeur of mid-period Depeche single… More »

Watch Depeche Mode’s Live On Letterman Webcast

Last night, weathered synth-rock legends Depeche Mode did musical-guest honors on the Late Show With David Letterman, brooding their way through the new single “Heaven.” And while they were on the premises, they also recorded a 48-minute concert for the Live On Letterman video series, playing a grip of songs from their new album DeltaMore »

Watch Depeche Mode Play “Heaven” Live

We’ve heard the song and seen the video, and now here’s footage of British new wave pioneers Depeche Mode playing their slow and portentous new single “Heaven” live in studio. For what you’d have to call a studio band, Depeche Mode have long been pretty great at projecting a certain gravity live, and they get… More »

Depeche Mode – “Heaven” Video

Depeche Mode have a new album called Delta Machine on the way, and a couple of days ago we heard the dramatic lead single “Heaven.” And now here’s the video, from director Timothy Saccenti, in which the band, playing in a dusty old church, co-stars alongside skulls and druid-robed aliens and ghost trees. It’s almost… More »
