Frankie Rose, Trespassers William, Caveman, The Spits, Apteka & more

1.   The Spits – Last Man On Earth
5…4…3…Wake up with this new off-kilter space punk.

2.   Digital Leather – Young Doctors In Love
Facebook page doesn’t reveal much, but loving this album’s melodic post punk and killer chorus. And I’m not even a doctor.

3.   Germans – No Job
Rock and roll from a few years back that somehow reminds me of a Torontonian British Sea Power.

4.   Car Seat Headrest – Bodys
Ah, Brooklyn. Six minutes of stream-of-consciousness vocals and ecstatic indie rock.

5.   Dream Brother – Pretty Eyes
A bit poppy for us, but this song is just so damn catchy!

6.   Frankie Rose – Know Me
Lots of buzz about the latest single from Ms. Rose. Pure 80s swinging pop a la Sarah Records. Check out upcoming album Interstellar.

7.   Field Mouse – You Guys Are Gonna Wake Up My Mom
Some wistful, dreamy pop out of Brooklyn.

8.   A Classic Education – Night Owl
Slowing it down. Lovely guitar work. Find it on October’s Call It Blazing.

9.  Trespassers William – And We Lean In
Though they decided to call it a day, here’s a great acoustic-ish number from Having.

10.  Yo La Tengo – Pablo and Andrea
An Electr-O-Pura classic. “Show me where you hide all your secrets upstairs…” Love when the guitars come in.

11.  Caveman – Easy Water
The track of the week comes from Coco Beware, a fantastic record released last fall. The mysterious intensity of this track stood out for me.

12.  Red Horses Of The Snow – Airborne
Brilliant song that seems like an instant mellow shoegaze anthem. And what a voice!

13.  Brief Candles – Permafrost
One of many fabulous tracks on WTSH‘s superb 200,000 Gazes compilation. Love that Ride bass.

14.  Aerofall – Up’s & Down’s
Straightforward, almost hypnotic chord progression with layers and layers of guitar.

15.  The Hang Ups – Sweet Tooth
A nice one from the 90s indie rock heroes So We Go album.

16.  Pale Saints – Angel (Will You Be My)
Blistering shoegaze pop tune that’s perfect for dancing around your bedroom.

17.  Luminous Orange – Walkblind
Superplastic stunner by the Japanese shoegazers.

18.  Apteka – Gravesend
Very excited to hear new stuff from this band. In their words: “We play rock music. We like large kick drums, tube amplification, and face melting.” Hear hear.
