Playlist: Sirius XM’s ‘Dark Wave,’ 5/9/10

1st Wave

It’s Sunday night, so here, once again, is the playlist from the weekly “Dark Wave” show on Sirius XM’s classic alternative outlet 1st Wave. Tonight’s highlights include a couple album cuts off The Cure’s Disintegration, a Tones on Tail song that’s not “Go!” and Shriekback’s excellent “My Spine Is the Bassline.”

And the left-field pick of the night? Short-lived Wax Trax! industrial act Braindead Soundmachine’s 1992 cover of Patsy Cline’s “Walking’ After Midnight.”

“Dark Wave” airs each Sunday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern/7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific.
