Soundtrack2 Audiocast37: Pulses

The Octopus Project, Battles, Faunts, Wavves, Toro Y Moi & more.


If you choose blips and beats over guitars and drums, this audiocast is for you. We’ve put some recent and classic electronic favourites together into one mix.

It’s not beat-mixed. Didn’t have time but maybe I’ll do for the next electronic mix…

1. Faunts – Feel. Love. Thinking. Of.

Edmonton band gets things rolling with lovely electro pop off the album of the same name.

2. Toro Y Moi – Blessa

A pleasant afternoon stroll on another planet.

3. Caribou – Thistles And Felt

Love the guitar strumming over some chanting and beats. Off Up In Flames, but also check out his latest album.

4. Deep Dish – Awake Enough

This starts like the sunny electronica the duo is known for, but I included because of the layers of spacey synths.

5. Wavves – Cool Jumper

This tune defies any label and description. It doesn’t really fit anywhere so I thought I’d drop this crashing melodic assault here.

6. M83 – Run Into Flowers

Dreamy electronic bliss.

7. Tape Deck Mountain – On My Honor (Letting Up Despite Great Faults Remix)

“I swore I would stay.” Organs add to the urgent drama of the beats.

8. Popnoname – Hello Gorgeous (Terranova Remix)

Minimalist techno mystery Germany. Wait till the beat kicks in.

9. Moonstarr – Interplanetary Thoughts In Flight

Spacey electro off the excellent Dupont album. And the first track we’ve played to feature a vocoder!

10. Technasia – Force

A classic from a few years back. They have a new album out at the end of May.

11.  Jake Fairley – Mosquito

Noisy techno off 2005’s Touch Not The Cat. Former a member of Uncut, now goes by Fairmont.

12. Broadcast – Black Cat

A lyric in this song sums this band up perfectly to me: “Curiouser and curiouser.”

13. Battles – Leyendecker

Don’t really know what this is, but I like the dark mystery. Post-something?

14.  Neon Indian – Ephemeral Artery

Chromeo‘s evil twin from Austin via Brooklyn.

15. Ratatat – Mirando

Imagine Queen guitars over bouncy trip hop.

16. The Octopus Project – Ghost Moves

Bombastic anthem takes us home.

Soundtrack2 Audiocast24: Full Force

Amusement Parks on Fire, Fauns, Broadcast, Delorean, Unisex & more

If you like noisy rock and roll, you’re gonna dig the latest audiocast. Let’s hear it!

1.   Loomer – Search On Your Own

Like the distorted Swervedriver-style rock & roll from the Brazilian band, not to be confused with the other Loomer.

2.   Lovvers – 100 Flowers

Addictive and catchy. I can’t put a label on this one, but you could say the same for The Real Kids – listed as an influence on their site. I went back and listened to my RK tracks…MUCH tamer than this.

3.   Teenage Filmstars – Pressure

Guaranteed you’ve never heard anything like this. Backwards, noisy but somehow tuneful and coherent.

4.   The Men – The Man

Like the propulsive rock energy here, available for purchase on their blog. Props to BOAWS for the tip.

5.   Amusement Parks On Fire – Motown Ritual

And now we’re into some noisy shoegaze from 2005’s Blackout EP this year’s Young Fight EP. If you like feedback, the end will be like music to Pete Townshend’s ears. Updated, thanks to Dwight.

6.   Headtime – Need To Be

Postpunk number to shake things up a bit. Anyone know much about this band?

7.   The Fauns – The Sun Is Cruising

I slept on this initially but finally bought it. Nice to see the shoegaze hype was warranted.

8.   Julian Casablancas – River Of Brakelights

Does the Strokes’ singer’s latest album fit our format? No, but I’d argue that this trippy hypnotic riff is a big departure from “Last Nite.”

9.   Mazarin – The New American Apathy

Electronic spacepop goodness from Philly-based band.

10.  Broadcast – In Here The World Begins

Ethereal psychedelia from the new Mothers of the Milky Way tour EP.

11.  Delorean – Seasun

Spanish troupe delivers lovely sunshine montage music.

12.  Lisa Mitchell – Coin Laundry (Starsmith remix)

Ozzie up and comer remixed by London space scientist. Brilliant MySpace page!

13.  City Of Satellites – BMX

Slowing it down with some Australian dream pop off the Machine Is My Animal album on Hidden Shoal.

14.  Letting Up Despite Great Faults – Sun Drips

Ignore the long name for a minute and check out the awesome S/T album. Quality stuff.

15.  Unisex – The Full Force Of The Sun

Telescopes splinter band closes the set with drifting sleepy epic off Stratosfear.
