Maribel, Screen Vinyl Image, School of Seven Bells, The Chambermaids, Deardarkhead & more

1.   School of Seven Bells – The Night
New sublime electronic dream pop that should make you very happy. Look for it on Ghoststory.

2.   Pterodactyl – School Glue
Noise rock that seemed to go perfectly with the previous tune.  Now I’m not so sure…

3.   MaoTzu – Case Closed
Freak frenzied folk psychedelia out of Chicago.

4.   Yakari – Higher Sphere
Arctic indie rock that brings to mind a more-blunted Archers of Loaf. Also – I think this is the first time we’ve featured a Swiss band on S2!

5.   The Faux Noise – Oh Father (Hymn)
Wonderful head-nodding shoegaze.

6.   Earthquake Party – Pretty Little Hand
Walls of garage guitar meet guy/girl pop harmonies.

7.   The Chambermaids – Whirlpool
This is very special. Imagine chords and vocals from Pink Floyd crossed with the Fleet Foxes sound.

8.   Deardarkhead – Invisible
Recently released on Captured Tracks’ new Oceanside: 1991-1993, this is just one of several killer tracks from this obscure shoegaze band.

9.   Maribel – Jezebel Jive
My ears perked up at this new track from their second album Reveries due out in 2012. It’s hard to describe their sound, so according them: “Maribel play dark, slow-burning dream-pop drawing on a wide range of influences from film noir to J Dilla.”

10.  Screen Vinyl Image – Revival
Rip-roaring drone garage from the might SVI. Check out their latest album Strange Behavior.

11.  Ufesas – Part Of The Night
Uruguay band takes us on a journey deep into psych country. So glad this tune is on the mix. It’s intense.

12.  Coolrunnings – Rusk
Where the hell did this come from? Low chant-like vocals interrupted by explosions of psych guitar.

13.  Nova Drones – Leech
Now we’re back to what sounds like an actual tune!

14.  Tashaki Miyaki – Somethin’ Is Better Than Nothin’
Can’t tell if this is a The Jesus And Mary Chain cover or a wonderful homage.

15.  All In The Golden Afternoon – All In The Golden Afternoon
Trippy tune to soundtrack a bad dream sequence.

16.  Galaxie 500 – Tugboat
Stone cold classic from Today.

17.  Mystic Chords Of Memory – We Could Send Letters
Aztec Camera track given the full blown hippy cinema treatment by a now-defunct band composed of members of The Aislers Set, The Tyde and Beachwood Sparks.
