The Lionheart Brothers, Wire, British Sea Power, Weird Dreams, Incan Abraham & more
Literally bursting with lots of great new music. What are you into these days?
1. Weird Dreams – Hurt So Bad
Power pop with buzzsaw guitars, taken from the wonderful Young & Research compilation, available here.
2. Eux Autres – Cover Rights
Like their mellow San Francisco pop sound.
3. Babies – Run Me Over
Garage-y, reverb-heavy rock and roll.
4. Ty Segall – Caesar
Sounds like a track left off David Bowie‘s The Man Who Sold The World album, sang backwards of course.
5. Lab Coast – Really Realize
Now we’re getting to a few bands with names spit out by the chillwave name generator. Nice 60’s garage pop sound from Alberta, California.
6. Ghost Wave – Hippy
New Zealanders ring the guitars through two minutes of propulsive rock and roll.
7. Tripwires – Cinnamon
Shoegaze band that sounds like it’s fronted by James Mercer of The Shins.
8. British Sea Power – We Are Sound
UK powerhouse comes correct on epic banger from latest album Valhalla Dancehall.
9. The Lionheart Brothers – The Desert
Interesting psychedelic space pop from Oslo.
10. Wire – Adapt
Legendary group pulls out another one. This dream pop tune sounds quite different than some of their older stuff.
11. Easter Island – Proud
Heart-on-sleeve, beautiful pop out of Athens, GA.
12. Oeil – White
Full-on Japanese shoegaze.
13. Brahman – I Guess I Should Be Thanking You
Epic rock anthem. Available via name-your-price on Bandcamp.
14. The Rosen Association – Emergency Broadcast
Electronic indie that takes us spaceward.
15. Beggars In A New Land – Home Alone
Shimmering digital pop that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Macaulay Culkin.
16. Delphic – This Momentary
These guys are unique. Electronic, swirling track that builds in intensity then fizzles out.
17. Incan Abraham – Third Man
Mysterious midtempo moodiness conjures up an Animal Collective vibe.
18. Under Alien Skies – Done Sink
Murky groove off the Paste EP.
