Asylum Party - Borderline

1989; 14 tracks
Asylum Party was a French new-wave group from the 80s whose amazing talents were only put into two full-lengths, this being the first (although it contains material from a previously released mini-album). They sing in English, and the lyrics glide effortlessly inside your head. To listen to them is the most natural thing in the world.

You will probably never find a more beautiful new-wave/post-punk band on earth than Asylum Party, even if you tried. The Chameleons springs to mind as a possibility, but for some reason Asylum Party proves itself to be even more outstanding. I can't describe it, they just possess absolute magic and it shines through their songs.  "Sweetness... of Pain" is probably my favorite track, especially the last two minutes or so oboyoboyoboy.
