Sundial, Depreciation Guild, Thrushes, Echodrone, Turn-Ons & more
Howdy. Until we do our special psych-only audiocast, we kick things off with back-to-back face-melting tunes, then dig into some shoegaze, dream pop and electronic goodness. No Frank Zappa this time.
1. Cold Pumas – Tropical Guilt
Brighton-based group get us stated with a great track. Urgent, repetitive rock and roll, available from Fader.
2. Woven Bones – With You Alone
3. Stellarium – Chocolate & Strawberry
Love this loud shoegazer track.
4. Sun Dial – Open Your Eyes
5. Quest For Fire – In The Place Of A Storm
Now we’s getting ‘eavy. Toronto group goes deep into the void, from upcoming 7″ with Nebula.
6. Ulaan Khol – Untitled 2
7. Yppah – They Know What Ghost Know
Great groovy, building psych from a band that I like more and more. Can’t get enough of the swirling Ray Manzarek organ overtop.
8. The Turn-Ons – PS I Love You
And we’re back to some fabulous shoegaze on the Lilys tip.
9. Echodrone – Winter Station
Slowing it down (sorta) with a new one of their album The Sun Rose In A Different Place.
10. The Low Sea – I Know
Lazy track off the very good new album Las Olas.
11. Thrushes – Night Falls
I’m risking a talking-to from Chris for including this one off their new Night Falls. Check out the building intensity.
12. Pure Ecstasy – Voices
Second Austin band included on this week’s audiocast. Nice moody number available from RCRDLBL.
13. Zola Jesus – I Can’t Stand
Also downloadable, this curious “grower” comes off Stridulum.
14. The Depreciation Guild – My Chariot
New dream pop of the highest order.
Love, love, love this track. Never expected to play James Lavelle on our mixes. Pick it up or grab Where Did The Night Fall in May.
16. Light Pollution – Good Feelings
MySpace page: “Religious / Psychedelic / Healing & Easy Listening.”
17. Growing – Innit
Been waiting for the right occasion to drop this six-minute-plus journey. Think this is it.
