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
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
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.
