Two Swedish bands, some originators and a new track by the Fleeting Joys? We think it works…
Check out Soundtrack2 Audiocast6 here.
1. Blackstrap – Winning Speech
Leading off with a nice track that mixes BRMC and TSOOL. OMG. Info here.
2. TV On The Radio – Halfway Home
Love this track off last year’s Dear Science. Sweet synth and great vocals. TVOTR comes to Toronto June 2. Info here.
3. My Bloody Valentine – When You Sleep
Couldn’t resist this dreamy classic for our sixth audiocast. Info here.
4. Fleeting Joys – Cloudlike Mercury
Nice midtempo track off latest record Occult Radiance. Definitely worth picking up. Info here.
5. Astrobrite – Miss Teen U.S.A.
Hypnotising. This is probably what bagpipes would sound like if you figured out how to plug them into a Danelectro. Info here.
6. Duster – Heading For The Door
The first three times Chris heard this song, he thought it was The Spinanes. Check out Stratosphere…textbook grower. Info here.
7. Monster Movie – Letting You Know
Slowdive fans will want to check Christian Savill’s other band, Monster Movie. The opening line “Summer changed…you” knocks me out every time. Info here.
8. 1969 Armstrong – Salient Night
Stockholm’s latest shoegaze export. Great under-produced sound. Info here.
9. Singapore Sling – Listen
Stuttering anthem off very cool record The Curse Of Singapore Sling. Info here.
10. Loop – Arc-Lite
Hypnotic soundtrack to the end of the world off the killer Pspyched compilation. Info here.
11. Spacemen 3 – Revolution
Can’t think of a more fitting title. I’ll bet The Stooges think this is one of theirs. Honourable mention: Mudhoney’s version. Info here.
12. Primitives – Lazy
Indie pop band best known “Crash” brings the gloomy groove. Info here.
13. Drop Nineteens – Kick The Tragedy
Imagine staring out a frosted passenger window, shadows of passing trees and this song over and over. Info here.
14. Airiel – 500 Deep
Recalls Going Blank Again era Ride. Info here.
