Soundtrack 2 Ep. 51: Fast Asleep

Atlas Sound, Ten Million Lights, The Telescopes, Wooden Shjips, The Hidden Ratio & more

Cover of Funki Porcini's Fast Asleep

1.   Soft Circle – Night Hike

Propulsive, slightly Krautrock beats take us deep into the woods.

2.    Suuns – Arena

Montreal band get into an evil synth groove at Daytrotter session.

3.   Atlas Sound – Lanterns

World-y beats with ambient noises. One of the many different directions Mr. Cox takes on his four albums of bedroom recordings, which you can find here. Better get a new hard drive.

4.   Maserati – Bye M’friend, Goodbye

All’s well in the world if you start your day off with this electronic shoegaze track. The bassline just kills me – reminds of Deep Purple‘s “Highway Star.” I’m no drummer, but I’d love to play on this one.

5.   Wooden Shjips – Motorbike

Suicide meets Spacemen 3 on this drone-y psych monster off Dos.

6.   My Disco – Closer

Australian post punk with loud, repetitive guitar available here.

7.   Ten Million Lights – Fast Asleep

These guys are the real deal. Second time they’ve been on the podcast this year. Solid midtempo shoegaze.

8.   Amusement Parks On Fire – Echo Park / Infinite Delay

Vocalist seems overly inspired by The Silversun Pickups and autotune, but this one from Road Eyes rocks.

9.   The Hidden Ratio – Crystal Growth

Bombastic shoegaze psych with tremolo and ringing guitars.

10.  The Telescopes – Everso

Classic stuff off the Everso EP. There’s even sitar in there!

11.  Iowa – Lose Yourself

Dinosaur Jr. much? I’ll forgive them this time, particularly since they made it available on their bandcamp.

12.  Garageland – Fay Ray

Bratty 90s indie rock and roll out of New Zealand.  These guys are for you if you’re into Pavement or Imperial Teen.

13.  Rec Centre – Funner

It’s rarely sunny in Vancouver, but that doesn’t mean they can’t do sunshine pop! Pick it up here.

14.  Au Revoir Simone – All or Nothing

This chillwave tune didn’t do much for until I saw their KEXP video. Subtle and beautiful.

15.  Goatface – Creekside

Weird electronic raga from Georgia.

16.  Eric & Magill – Birthdays Are Important

Transcendant use of harmonies and space off All Those I Know. Mercury Rev fans dig in: “Here’s to another trip around the sun.”
