Bachelorette, Cloud Control, SIANspheric, I Break Horses, The Boo Radleys & more
1. Peter Cat Recording Co. – Love Demons
Don’t be fooled by the slow dirge beginning. This is a full-on psychedelic freak out. Singer reminds me of someone… Pete Doherty?
2. Vue – She’s Sweet
3. The Boo Radleys – Bluebird
Martin Carr and co. drop some melodic shoegaze rock and roll, taken from the Every Heaven EP.
4. Velocity Girl – I Don’t Care If You Go
Great midtempo shoegaze power pop tune from an underrated band. Playing this makes me want to dig up a Posies tune.
Super early garage pop from their rarities comp Science Faire.
6. Last Tide – Traitor In My Mind
DC band drops a chiming, driving footstomper with singalong choruses.
7. SIANspheric – Static
8. Grooms – Tiger Trees
Boy does this song get inside your head. Love the melancholy mood it sets with waves of noisy chords.
9. Miracles – Quarantine
“We want a quarantine! Separate evolution!” barks the singer over heavy distorted guitar and pounding drums.
10. The Consolation Project – Look Wild
11. Cloud Control – Meditation Song #2 (Why, Oh Why)
12. Dreamed – Izumi
13. The Kingsbury Manx – Blue Eurasians
Chapel Hill 90s heroes update the Pink Floyd sound. The gem on their self-titled album.
14. Silver Pines – Payasito
Second time I’m playing these Texans. Really like their dusty psychedelic sound.
15. Clams Casino – I’m God (instrumental)
Now we jump to a cross between chillwave, ambient and hip hop. Love.
16. I Break Horses – Hearts
17. Bachelorette – Blanket
I’ve been excited for her new self-titled album since it was first announced. It doesn’t dissapoint. Most are describing it as folk meets electronic pop, but I love how she layers her voice, with washes of noise and drone over the beats.
18. aeiou – Vivimos In L.A.
