Cincinnati Synth Pop duo Moonbeau — led by Claire Muenchen and Christian Gough — is making some of the best music of the new wave of New Wave. On the twosome’s 2018 self-titled debut full-length, Muenchen and Gough offer 10 tracks of powerful Pop potency that transcends the instrumentation. If the album were simply their vocals and an out-of-tune piano, it would still be a melodic tour de force. Opener “In Love,” for example, might recall, say, A Flock of Seagulls, but it isn’t hard to reimagine it as a Bruce Springsteen song (and hard not to hear it that way once you do), down to the Patti Scialfa-like harmonies. All of the songs are instantly memorable — by just the second listen, it feels like you’ve known them for years. The resplendent Synth Pop presentation is highly enchanting in its own way; wrapping it around an impeccable Pop core makes for an exhilarating combination. With its appropriately vaporwave album cover aesthetic, 'Moonbeau' won the 2018 Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Album of the Year. (Mike Breen)
