Ringo Deathstarr, Chapterhouse, Dead Leaf Echo, Spotlight Kid, Husky Rescue & more
Non-stop shoegaze anthems turn sweet and lovely. Sorta.
1. Ringo Deathstarr – Imagine Hearts
Shoegaze funk off Colour Trip. If the new album has more like this, I’m sold.
2. Husky Rescue – Fast Lane
Groovy indie pop with bursts of guitar. Grab it on their latest Ship Of Light.
3. Maikotobranco – Hello, Goodbye
4. Simon Says No! – See Me Through
Dark garage from Oslo band. Check out their self-titled debut.
5. Loomer – Rocket Fuzz
6. Catherine Wheel – Free Of Mind
Sinister beauty off of 30 Century Man. Tracks like this make me consider doing a Catherine Wheel podcast.
7. Spotlight Kid – All Is Real
Swervedriver-loving UK band swirl away to great effect.
8. Triángulo de Amor Bizarro – El Fantasma De La Transición
Spanish band delivers a noisier version of Broken Social Scene.
9. Mash – Rise
Will not do lazy band comparison….will not do lazy band comparison…glammy J-rock melts into downtempo groove then acoustic coda.
10. Dead Leaf Echo – Act Of Truth
Breathy dream pop that brings to mind Spandau Ballet‘s “True.” There, I said it…but it’s good.
11. Chapterhouse – Treasure
12. Motorifik – Secret Things
13. For A Minor Reflection – Flóð
Icelandic mellow post rock tune off the Rejkavik sampler comp. Big finish.
14. British Sea Power – Bear
New Zeus tune sounds like a classic mellow number of theirs: “How could you fall so far?” Then they take off.
15. My Bloody Valentine – Blown A Wish
Visitors from another planet touch down.
It’s not out until November 22, but you can get your darkside on right now via SoundCloud.
