Soundtrack2 Audiocast8: Nova

Film School, Thrushes, Pixies, Mercy Arms, Primal Scream and more.

We’ve had some great newish stuff on rotation here, so we’re digging into them this time around.

Check out Soundtrack2 Audiocast8 here.

1.   Ultra Vivid Scene – It Happens Every Time

Kicking off this week’s mix is a poppy one from New York-via-London’s Kurt Ralske.

2.   Star – In Your Arsenal

Love this glammy track from a couple of years’ back. Definitely keep Star on your radar.


3.  Dylans – Mary Quant In Blue (De-Luxe Reverse Submarine Mix II)

90s band brings on the psychedelia, backwards percussion and haze.

4.   Greencoats – Honey

Kicking it into high gear with propulsive, glorious gem from this Swedish band’s Spring EP.

5.   Mercy Arms – Half Right

Australian band delivers three and half minutes of soaring bliss. The singer reminds of another well-known vocalist, but I can’t place who! Anyone?

6.   Latex Distortion and Gary West – Dopamine

Great indie rock track with bubbling distortion off Killed By A Fairy. Hard to find a good link to these guys so please add in a comment if you know one.

7.   Pixies – Alison

Short burst of seminal rock and roll energy before we head spaceward.

8.   Air – Dead Bodies

French band soundtracks a full-scale assault on Saturn. Taken from the Virgin Suicides OST.

9.   Boards of Canada – Dayvan Cowboy

BOC isn’t a huge favourite of ours, but this drifting, building track works great here.

10.  Film School – Ms. Connection

Brilliant mellow track from the Alwaysnever album.

11.  Flunk – Play

Anja ˆòyen Vister’s croons gently over Ulf Nygaard’s “soothing delight.” Very nice.

12.  Thrushes – Aidan Quinn

Why did this Baltimore noise pop band decide to pay tribute to 80s/90s actor Aidan Quinn? Don’t know, but love this track.

13.  Solar Powered People – Commercial Flight


I can’t stop listening to this song. File under perfect pop.

14.  Working for a Nuclear Free City – Troubled Son

Manchester band brings the evil shoegaze funk.

15.  Primal Scream – Shoot Speed/Kill Light

Off Xtrmntr, Bobby Gillespie’s crew take us out in psychedelic rock and roll style. Props to Chris on this one.
