Blonde Redhead, The Black Angels, Luminous Orange, Whirl, ExDetectives & more

Catching up on new tunes from some great bands…

1. Superhumanoids – Persona

LA-based indie rock band gets us off to a moody, groovy start.

2. Whirl – Meaningless

More goodness out of California, this time a shoegaze rock tune.

3.   Me You Us Them – Any Time

Post-data track by Brooklyn shoegazers, which eMusic aptfully describes as “blissed-out, bendy, warped, post-weirdo music.”

4.   Luminous Orange – Sea Of Lights

This track that reminds of recent nugaze-but-actually-new-sounding tracks by Serena Maneesh, Brian Jonestown Massacre and others. Great one off June’s Songs of Innocence.

5. Archers – Brussels Truffles

Blistering cross of noise-rock and mod power pop.

6.   Amazing Electronic Talking Cave – I Can See You

This Russian/European had me from this song’s opening tone-downed chord.

7.    All Saints Day – You Can’t Be Alone

A side project of the Vivian Girls, this is a classic garage pop tune with a bit of noise thrown in.

8. The Black Angels – Bad Vibrations

Ever since they blew my mind in concert last year, I’ve waited for new music. Here they deliver more great droney, reverb-drenched rock and roll from Phosphene Dream. Look out for the mid-song change-up.

9. Telltale – Sedition Act

The (bad?) trip through the U.S. continues with more droney rock and roll.

10. Cloud Control – Ghost Story

“We are the protectors, we are the soul collectors, we follow solar vectors…”

11. Darker My Love – Dear Author

A cross between The New Pornographers and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club off their Alive As You Are record.

12. Suicide Party – XxX

Killer instrumental psych off the Decadence split EP.

13. ExDetectives – Won’t Stop

Lovely midtempo dreampop to soundtrack your summer afternoon.

14. Ojos Rojos – Step Outside

More dreamrock from one of this audiocast’s California massive.

15. 93MillionMilesFromTheSun – When You Come (Nick Mainline Mix)

Off their newest (free) EP, this great dirge will take you into the wee hours.

16. Dinowalrus – Actually

Fans of Spiritualized will dig this.

17. Blonde Redhead – Here Sometimes

It’ll be hard to top 2007’s 23, but this funky trip hop single from their next album is very interesting. Pick it up on their site.
