Séance - Detlef & Destemonia's End MLP (1987, Lux Noire)
I had these two records out and did see that they were once posted on some New Romantic themed blog I'd never seen/heard of before back in 2008... but am re-posting my personal rips regardless - which are likely better quality. Séance were a Swiss band mixing synthpop with some coldwave elements. I've yet to hear their later '89 7" release, but this is my favorite from the two I have. Sometimes the vocals can be quite over-the-top, which might cause a chuckle.... but solid stuff all the way through if you enjoy this style. A quick comparison that comes to mind is Ligne D'Hiver meets early Second Decay... though I wouldn't consider that 100% accurate.

Here is the second release... certainly more polished and produced than the MLP, but still containing some worthwhile tracks such as the great "My Room". I do recall some of the songs having some cheesy / laughable lyrics -- heh, but I don't think that should be any surprise.
