The Whigs, Sleepcomesdown, Tame Impala, School Of Seven Bells, SPC ECO & more
Gotta say I’m excited about this mix.
1. David Holmes – I Heard Wonders
Illuminating space rock from talented UK musician.
2. Sun Airway – Put The Days Away
3. Between The Cities Are Stars – All This Trouble
“Noisegaze” straight from the garage, from Noise’s Revenge.
4. The Smashing Pumpkins – Astral Planes
Never been a huge SP fan (except maybe during Rock Band) but intrigued by their spacey rock tune. Nice coda.
5. Shattered Darlings & Liquid Kisses – Radio
Now we’re talking. C86 pop mixed with classic shoegaze, available for free via their MySpace page.
6. SPC ECO – Like It Is
Filed under the “they’re getting better and better” category, a glorious dreamer off April’s Silver Clouds EP.
7. Hollow Ox – 2012
Droney deep rock out of Nashville: “Twenty!…Twelve!..”
8. School Of Seven Bells – Crescent Gold
SOSB is a cut above – way, way above – the usual nu-gaze stuff coming out these days. Soundtrack to late night/early morning reverie off the Windstorm EP. And yes, I know I played them on the last podcast.
9. Insect Guide – David Hero
Something very familiar about this UK band’s dream pop – maybe a Joy Zipper connection? From what I can tell, no relation to Stephen Hero, Patrick’s band following the demise of Kitchens of Distinction.
10. The Amazing – Head Beaches
Slowin’ it down with some pastoral dream folk. Rest of Wait For A Light To Come is like this, but mellower.
11. Lower Dens – Hospice Gates
Groovy dream pop out of Baltimore.
12. The Whigs – Dying
Murky new one off In The Dark takes us deep into the vortex.
13. Tame Impala – This Is Not Meant To Be
John Lennon smiles on this track by Perth, Australia’s finest. Love this.
14. MMOSS – Kitty Sorrow
Psychedelic drone singalong, for fans of bands like Olivia Tremor Control.
15. Ride Into The Sun – Chosen One
16. Sleepcomesdown – State Trooper
Brain melting, heavy cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s State Trooper.
