The 80th track on our free download compilation “Face The Beat: Session 4” (featuring 92 tracks) is by the excellent Nashville, TN based female-fronted industrial synthpop act The Sweetest Condition.

The Sweetest Condition is a female-fronted industrial synthpop band, featuring Leslie I. Benson (lyrics + vocals) and Jason Reed Milner (music + synths + guitars). After releasing their five-song EP, “Truth & Light”, in April 2013, the duo moved from Indianapolis, Indiana, to Nashville, Tennessee, where they teamed up with sound engineer Joel Lauver of Burning Bridge Recordings to produce their debut full-length album, “Edge of the World”, which was released on August 28, 2015. A second full-length album. Their latest album “We Defy Oblivion” was released in November 2016 and it’s from that very album that the band decided to offer us the track “Burn This City”.

You can find the project back on Facebook, make sure to check it out!

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
