Soundtrack2 Ep. 59: Last Winter

Mogwai, Papercuts, PJ Harvey, Big Troubles, Akron/Family & more

1.   PJ Harvey – Written On The Forehead

The latest from new record Let England Shake. Dream pop mixed with dub by the constantly-evolving Ms. Harvey.

2.   New Animal – Last Winter

“I never wanna listen…” Imagine taking a train ride through the sunny countryside, and everyone’s got a beard.

3.   Silohs – A Zealot Sun

Fleet Foxes meet Mercury Rev. This one’s off Shed Your Summer.

4.   Papercuts – Do What You Will

Indie pop (break-up tune?) with a melody that gets trapped in your head. One of many greats from Fading Parade.

5.   Baby Giraffe – Understatement

Toronto representing with a distorted stew that gives way to driving, space-y singalong.

6.   Akron/Family – Silly Bears

Ecstatic, bombastic rock and roll anthem from their latest, S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT. Not to be confused with Silly Rabbit.

7.   Liars – Rose and Licorice

This one – from 2002’s Atheists, Reconsider, their split with Oneida – could have come out yesterday.

8.   n o i – Adelaide

Tennessee band drop a glammy dose of Archers of Loaf goodness from S e v e n. Clearly this band likes to have spaces.

9.   Swervedriver – Pile-up

Great riffs + dark groove + restless energy = this fantastic band. Get it on Raise. I just LOVE what passed for a “guitar solo” in the Swervedriver camp.

10.  Power Of Dreams – Suburbia

Irish 90’s era shoegaze/Britpop. Seems an ode to a woman who married too young.

11.  Big Troubles – Georgia

Shimmering shoegaze by New Jersey band.

12.  Belong – Perfect Life

Like this post punk track, with heavy current of bass noise.

13.  Mogwai – How To Be A Werewolf

Hot off their out-this-week Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. These guys know how to do post-rock without putting me to sleep. Inspirational.

14.  True Womanhood – Minajah

And now for something completely different. Dark, almost industrial tune that you probably shouldn’t listen to if you’re home alone. Available here.
