*Podcast change alert*
Based on feedback asking us to indicate which song is by which artist, we introduced a short mention at the start of each track. Like it? Hate it? Let us know what you think…
1. Pete International Airport – 21 Days
Murky psychedelia, up for grabs from their website above.
2. Beaches – In A While
Australians offer soundtrack to the Chicago riots in ’68.
3. Soft Moon – Parallels
Mysterious post punk off their great S/T record.
4. Young Governor – Fade Away
Brings to mind the garage pop joy I felt when I first heard Stiff Little Fingers’ “Suspect Device.”
5. Shattered Darlings & Liquid Kisses – Ola
Reverb-drenched noisy goodness out of Long Island. Love the guitar riffage at the end.
6. Tone Rodent – Train
Monotone Go-Betweens intro gives way to triumphant, noisy 90s-influenced anthem.
7. Polyester – Shoot Into The Sun
Desert drive under a blazing sun. Actually, that would be great right about now. BTW do they have deserts in Uruguay?
8. Zeit – She Came To Stay
Melodic slice of noise pop/chillwave from Sweden.
9. Girls In The Eighties – Hissin’ Dreams
Trippy downtempo psychedelia.
10. Sunshower Orphans – Sunnyside Blues
Chillwave with lovely guitar texture.
11. Presents For Sally – Sunsets In Your Eyes
UK represents with full-blown, technicolor shoegaze. Dig the breakdown at the end.
12. The Earlies – Morning Wonder
An older track off These Were The Earlies that I’ve wanted to play for a while.
13. Young Galaxy – The Buzz In My Flesh
Love this new one. Heart on sleeve dream pop with strong backbeat. Can’t wait for their full-length! Also peep their absolutely gorgeous site via the link above.
14. Walter Meego – Starlight
Epic glam space ballad, with a chorus that scratches my 70s MOR itch. Available for download via link above.
15. Cale Parks – One At A Time
Brahms guy brings a slice of spacey synth pop.
16. Twin Shadow – Slow
His Daytrotter session reminded me how fantastically creative the studio version of this tune is. Funky, passionate, trippy…perfection.
17. (m+a) – (we)
A mini, glitchy electronic pop symphony.
