Audiocast5: Let Me Come Back

We’ve made it to our fifth episode!  This one starts with two killers from the 80s and takes off from there.

We’ve included some very nice music from Asobi Seksu’s new album and I finally was able to get Lush past our censors.

Let us know what you think by adding a comment or dropping us an e-mail!

1.  Modern English – Gathering Dust

Move over, “Stop the World”…this intergalactic fuzzed-out glam monster is their real gem.  Info here.

Dirty rock n roll…really digging this band these days.  Info here.

Nice “dual-bass attack” from their brilliant Venus Luxure No. 1 Baby album.  Info here.

Getting darker now with the Black Angels.  Boy, are we suckers for gloomy reverb.  Info here.

7.  Brian Jonestown Massacre – Anemone

Tracing the line further back…classic track.  Info here.

8.  Galaxie 500 – Strange

The sun comes out a bit with the great Galaxie 500.  Check out Luna and Dean and Britta if you’re into this.  Info here.

9.  Asobi Seksu – Sunshower

Bouncy nod to 80s indie from their new album Hush.  Info here.

10.  Chapterhouse – There’s Still Life

Thank you, DejaVu Discs’ bargain bin!  Shoegaze band delivers atmospheric psychedelia off late-period album Blood Music. Check out Whirlpool for their classic stuff.  Info here.

11.  All Natural Lemon & Lime Flavors – When Things Come Falling

Misty morning track off the Turning Into Small album.  Info here.

12.  The Pains of Being Pure At Heart – Contender

Name (and sound) seems inspired by Belle and Sebastien, but this track’s melody and distortion suits our format nicely.  Info here.

13.  Sky Drops – Sentimentalelbow_ban1

Thanks to Built on a Weak Spot for turning me on to this band  Nice harmonies.  Info here.

14.  Elbow – Any Day Now

This. Song. Is. Amazing.  Info here.

15.  Low – Monkey

Still love this track off of The Great Destroyer.  Ominous business.  They lit up Massey Hall when they opened for Wilco.  Info here.

16.  Wye Oak – Warning

Love the art on this band’s If Children album (right).  Music’s good too…a bit of Broken Social Scene thing going on with this track.  Info here.wye-oak

17.  Kitchens of Distinction – Quick As Rainbows

I suspect that this band has passionate legions of fans lurking in corners of the Web.  I may be one of them.  Info here.

18.  Sonic Youth – Teenage Riot

Anyone that asks Chris what he likes so much about Sonic Youth gets to listen to this song.  You didn’t ask…but if you’ve made it this far you probably won’t mind.  Info here.
