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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
