Soundtrack2 Audiocast 42: Feels Like Forever

Lost Rivers, Adam Franklin & The Bolts of Melody, Lilys, Holy Hail, Ride & more

1. Electric Sunset – Soda

Hazy, sunspotted electronic psychadelia from San Francisco. Their Electric Sunset EP hits in September.

2. Birthdays – Van Hands

Hip hop-inspired slight Animal Collective dreamy homage.

3. Aether – Such Charm

Yes, the opening croon sounds a bit like Chris Martin. But keep listening and the insistent synths we’ll draw you in.

4. AC Berkheimer – Off You Go

Nice 80s gloomy number. One of  two nice tracks the Dutch band is offering for free on their site.

5. Cut Copy – Where I’m Going

Give this one a chance. Kind of Elephant 6 meets Billy Joel. Kicking myself that I didn’t throw in some light psych tracks off Mgmt‘s latest too.

6. Bubblegum Lemonade – Last Time I Saw Andrew

I think this is the only UK track on a S2 mix! Scottish band deliver the draggy/baggy goods.

7. Ride – Time Of Her Time

A classic off Going Blank Again. Decided it’s time to get a Ride t-shirt…anyone have some good options?

8. Adam Franklin & The Bolts Of Melody – I’ll Be Yr Mechanic

Any song with an opening line like “As the gas station burns…” is ok in my book.

AF’s last album was okay, but his new one I Could Sleep For A Thousand Years is really doing it. Hard to choose the one we liked most, so we caved and went with the one that sounded most like his beloved Swervedriver.

9. Lilys – The Any Several Sundays

When I first heard this at Rotate This it blew my mind. Eastern guitar, mid-sixties Byrds, mod chords and some serious drone add up to one monster of a tune.

10. Cloudlight Canyon – Mothlight Pt. 2

Cape Verde dream rockers enthrall for five plus minutes.

11. Megaphonic Thrift – Undertow

Norweigan rockers telling us to turn…it…up. And drive faster.

12. The Secret Machines – Road Lead Where It’s Led

…Which then reminds me of this band and their fantastic Now Here Is Nowhere.

13. Holy Hail – Feels Like Forever

I really can’t describe this one. Imagine Hawkwind jamming with Modern English at an outdoor festival.

14. The Lost Rivers – Stay

My Beatific Vision indeed. Buzzsaw guitars, 60s beat way more intense than the Raveonettes.

15. Buke and Gass – Medulla Oblongata

What a voice! Crazy bombastic rock and roll with vocals hooks to spare.

16. Moonbeams – I Am Forgotten

West coast band brings some glorious desolation to wind down the mix.

Soundtrack2 Audiocast41: Processions

Autolux, The Blanket Ghost, Collider, The Boo Radleys, No Joy & more

1. Bottle Of Evil – Conversation

Dreamy Scottish indie. Feeling a bit of Doves here but not sure why.

2. Slowdive – 40 Days

Working in some more classics. We haven’t played this band since the very first episode – criminal! Timeless and lovely.

3. Anne – Summer Babies

Vocals remind me of Duncan Sheik (!) but this dream pop off their Demo is first rate.

4. The Blanket Ghost – l o o k a t t h e s t a r s

Cool off-kilter noise pop. With a name using the required words “Ghost”, “Crystal” or “Girls”, these guys are sure to make it big.

5. Autolux – Supertoys

Yes. Transit Transit is out August 3 and it looks they haven’t lost their touch over the years.

6. The Boo Radleys – Rodney King

Another neglected ST2 fave. Love this track’s distorted groove from their masterpiece Giant Steps.

7. Bloody Knives – Hands Around My Neck

Glam-gaze from those weird kids in Austin.

8. Collider – !Ex Ex!

Righteous melodic shoegaze rock and roll from the fantastic Strobos EP, available on their Bandcamp.

9. Weed Hounds – Skating Away From The Cops

C86-inspired anthem by New Yorkan band. More please.

10. Caucus – Sing (Half Dreaming)

Came across this nice pop track off the great Half Dreaming Asian shoegaze comp. Pretty good English singing for a Japanese band!

11. The Morning After Girls – Death Processions

Last year’s Alone yielded some good tunes, but loud dark arena rock and roll fans should turn this one up.

12.  Cherryblades – Everyday Is Extreme

Cross Hüsker Dü, R.E.M. and Wire and you have this 90s band.

13. Amazing Baby – Head Dress

Baroque melodic Britpop  from Brooklyn with some nice glam guitar. Better than it sounds.

14. The High Dials – Book Of The Dead

Light psych that’s hooked me since first seeing them as mainly-mod The Datsons. Off this year’s good Moon Country album.

15. No Joy – No Joy

Hard to pin this one down. Loud, distorted Archers of Loaf-indebted rock.

16. Turzi – Baltimore

Party like it’s 1993 with this Bobby Gillespie-guested big beat track. Also better than it sounds.

17. How To Destroy Angels – Parasite

You-know-who brings the broken dark noise. Been kicking this around for a while now…pick up the free EP on his site.

18. Indian Jewelry – Lost My Sight

Swirl in to the dark digital void with this pummeling trance psychedelia. And for the last time – better than it sounds.
