Whirr, Ringo Deathstarr, Mood Rings, Veronica Falls, Odonis Odonis & more
1. Pujol – Mayday
Brash, garage rock and roll that shakes up the core formula.
2. We Walk In Straight Lines – War(m)
Urgent, passionate indie rock that lands just on the rights side of emo.
3. Whirr – JuneBouvier
Lovely shoegaze with great washes of guitar and vocals.
4. Holy Stain – Explosion
Bristol crew drop a scorching shoezage tune off free EP Sun Zoo.
6. R.M. Hendrix – Ivorine and Chai (Our Sanguine Holiday Mix)
Straight up transcendant shoegaze from Cambridge, MA.
7. Luna – Rollercoaster
Driving riff and drumming that doesn’t even take a break for a chorus! Listen carefully for the cool lead guitar overtop…almost a counter-melody.
8. Beaches – Free Way
Damn I love Sonic Youth, even 25 years later and from Australia. That is all.
9. Pantone – Dream For Hours
Glorious bass-heavy indie rock off Claire’s Several Bands Galore. Don’t blink or it will be over.
10. Mood Rings – Exorcised Painting
For lack of a better adjective, this is fantastic “moody” reverb-drenched power pop.
13. Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Little Blu House
And down comes the veil. Dayrtotter session takes us up the river.
14. Odonis Odonis – Highnote
Tune of the week. Totally unclassifiable, but catchy and cool. Put your sunglasses on. Proud to say they’re from Toronto, too.
16. Chapel Club – The Shore
Haunted lament for what’s been lost, recorded at Big Orange Studios. Who said there are no great songs anymore?
17. The Nocturnes – Love
Hard to describe this one – sadcore?
