Dinosaur Jr., Secret Machines, Junior Boys, Boy in Static, Rollerskate Skinny & more

If the latest podcast sounds a bit heavy on the synthesizers and beats, that’s because of all the great new tracks out recently. But don’t worry – we included the latest Dinosaur Jr. track to restore the R&R balance.

So then…cancel meetings, hold your calls and dig in.

Check out Soundtrack2 Audiocast12 here.

1.   SPC ECO – Shine On Down

Awesome bit of psychedelic haze from the new 3D album, currently available by “pay what you like.” One of my favourite new bands.

2.   Daedelus – LA Nocturn

Mellow groover with acoustic guitar loops over popping MIDI beats. I just discovered Daedelus recently through this Friends of Friends EP and was surprised to see all his other albums!

3.   Secret Machines – Underneath The Concrete

Off their latest self-title record, this track’s pounding drum/keys groove brings to mind an intergalactic Van Halen.

4.   Telefon Tel Aviv – The Birds

Electronic shoegaze goodness from this year’s Immolate Yourself album.

5.   Dykehouse – Hope She Hears This Sound

Hazy track from one very creative guy from of Ann Arbor.

Junior Boys

Love this uptempo dreamlike rocker from the new Inside Your Guitar record.

7.   Junior Boys – Work

When this song played over the PA in the Soundscapes shop, I knew I had to drop it into an upcoming audiocast. Off their new – and nice, but not amazing – Begone Dullcare.

8.   Readymade – Sam

Classic Slowdive-influenced dream pop from a few years back.

9.   Rollerskate Skinny – Shallow Thunder

This band is great because their music usually defies categorization. Perfect bridge to the next Barlow/Mascis track too.

10.  Dinosaur Jr. – I Want You To Know

Free download from upcoming new (!) album by legendary American Indie band. The chorus is amazing, the guitar is as dense as ever and J. Mascis’ more mature voice sounds great. I actually hear a Eddie Vedder in his voice now. Anyways, looking forward to the June 23 release date.

11.  Blind Mr. Jones – Hey

Wave 2 (or is it 1?) shoegaze act delivers droney rock and roll goodness.

12.  Boy In Static – Kissed Under The Sun

From the Newborn album. Researching this I found out the dropped a new album called Candy Cigarette last month. More homework to do!

13.  Mice Parade – Sneaky Red

MySpace page lists their music style as indie/shoegaze/flamenco..not a bad description for “Sneaky Red.” This would have fit nicely on one of Sloan‘s last two albums.

14.  Stevenson Ranch Davidians – Nature Boy

Bluesy psych rockers keep fire burning with this one. Cool site too.

15.  The Horrors – Sea Within A Sea

Didn’t dig their first album, but this epic track off Primary Colours is the real deal. Beware the prog in the last half; but I think it works.
