1. Headlights – This One (Live on Daytrotter)
This sublime, intimate track feels like it was recorded at 3 a.m in a whisper-quiet studio. Info here.

3. Swell – Say Goodbye
Underrated 90s band brings delivers a woozy slice of indie rock. Info here.
4. Should – Own Two Feet
Really into this band and this melodic, moody cut. Info here.
5. Ides of Space – Random Noise Generator
Another 90s band worth a rotation. “Take your path and I’ll take mine…” Info here.
6. Serena Maneesh – Chorale Lick
Will this band be coming out with another album or what? Overdue. Info here.
7. Eric’s Trip – Sun Coming Up
If you like this muffled brilliance, also see Elevator. Info here.
8. Pavement – Perfume-V
Malkmus has said they “made a career out of ripping off The Fall.” Love The Fall, but Pavement adds some serious haze on this one. Info here.
9. Dead Meadow – Such Hawks Such Hounds
This track’s time has come after being bumped the last four podcasts. Psych baby! Info here.
10. Ruby Suns – Morning Sun
Lovely weirdness from the band who also covered The Beatles’ “Birthday.” Look out for the 80s electro-pop curve. Info here.
11. Freeheat – The Two of Us
We played them in our first audiocast, but purchasing the Jesus and Mary Chain box inspired me to bring them back. Check out this killer track from Jim’s other project. info here.
12. Superdrag – Destination Ursa Major
Power pop goes interstellar. Info here.
13. (Sounds of Kaleidoscope) – Oh My Mind
I’m a sucker for anything that hints at the underwater psych pop of Lilys or Syd Barrett. Info here.
14. Echobelly – Great Things
Missed them the first time around. Nice fuzzed-out pop tune. Info here.
15. Cornelius – Free Fall
Great driving track from Japanese artist from Matador. Info here.
16. Tame Impala – H.F.G.W. (Canyon’s Drunken Rage)
This remix is unreal. “Now my only company’s a half-filled glass of wine.” Slowly starting to love Tame Impala. Info here.
