Lumerians, Stagnant Pools, Sunsplit, Airwaves, The Lassie Foundation & more.
The amount of amazing new tunes has slowed a little bit, so we’re playing some of the great stuff kicking around the iPod.
1. Stagnant Pools – Dead Sailor
Walls of guitar by a band that is getting more essential with each new release.
2. The Creakies – Arnold’s Song
Can’t remember the last time we’ve featured a Seattle band as good as these guys.
3. The Poumons – Rock And Roll City
I’d always associated this band with the 90s Halifax Pop Explosion. But seems they’re from Windsor?
4. The Clean – Drawing To A Hole
Flying Nun…that is all.
6. Neutral Milk Hotel – Ghost
Sublime, passionate indie rock taken from one of my fave albums of all time, In The Aeroplane, Over The Sea.
7. Airwaves – Keys
Slowing it down a bit with some midtempo Brooklyn indie rock.
8. Built To Spill – Carry The Zero
Fantastic songwriting, please meet smoking playing. Absolutely incendiary.
9. The Raconteurs – Intimate Secretary
Not a typical band to feature for a S2 mix, but this is pretty trippy business.
10. Chapterhouse – Greater Power
Overlooked Blood Music shoegaze anthem.
12. The Lassie Foundation – Three Wheels
Sadly defunct band dropped this shoegaze nugget on Jetstreams a few years back.
14. Maps – Elouise
I can’t help but return to the awesomeness of We Can Create: “Hypocrites can’t look me in the eye.”
15. Caribou – I’ve Live On A Dirt Road All My Life
Fantastic floating-in-space electronic psychedelia.
16. Quickspace – Coca Lola
This is all krautrock until you get to the gonzo chorus. It’ll get in ya.
18. Lumerians – Track 1
There was no question this voodoo psych groove is our song of the week. Strongly recommend you drop it at a party and see what happens…
