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.

1. Modern English – Gathering Dust
Move over, “Stop the World”…this intergalactic fuzzed-out glam monster is their real gem. Info here.
2. Chameleons – Up the Down Escalator
“They tell me tomorrow will never arrive…” YES. Info here.
3. Lush – Downer
Incomperable. Probably their most likely track to make it on one of our audiocasts. Info here.
4. Telescopes – Suffercation
Dirty rock n roll…really digging this band these days. Info here.
5. Girls Against Boys – Let Me Come Back
Nice “dual-bass attack” from their brilliant Venus Luxure No. 1 Baby album. Info here.
6. Black Angels – Dark Grease
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
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 – Sentimental
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
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.
