The Megaphonic Thrift, The Golden Filter, Odio Paris, Keith Canisius, This Love Is Deadly & more
1. This Love Is Deadly – Sweet Dependency
Starting things off with adrenaline-fuelled distorted glammy rock and roll with a 90s bent. Their self-titled new album is out and it’s solid.
2. Highlands – Railroad
Love the intro/chorus of this drone-y footstomper.
3. Constantines – Young Lions
A stunner from the Canadian band’s excellent Shine A Light album.
5. Presents For Sally – We Always Smile Sweeter
Driving mini-anthem from the UK.
6. The Sunshine Factory – Can’t Be Found (Falling Down)
You know when a song’s so good you’re sure you heard it somewhere before? When that ringing guitar kicks in on this track, you’ll know what I mean.
7. Go For Gold – A Way Of Changing
Not my usual thing, but the harmonies used by this Danish band during the choruses hit the spot.
8. Odio Paris – Big Business Monkey
Another dark rocker from this excellent Spanish band.
9. Mentalease – Sunday
Tidal psychedelic shoegaze from…Des Moines.
11. M A Y Г L E Y – СТАНЬ СЛАБЕЙ
Been sitting on this brooding dark Russian chillwave for a while. Apparently this is translated as “become weaker.”
13. Keith Canisius – Save The Sharks
Could I finally be ‘getting’ Keith Canisius? A couple of his tracks have gotten my attention recently. There’s a beautiful, classic pop song quietly hiding here.
14. Matthew Dear – Headcage
I snapped up this EP shortly after it came out because MD tracks are always worth a listen. Interesting how his sound continues to evolve. This track sounds like it could have come out on My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.
