1. Electric Sunset – Soda
Hazy, sunspotted electronic psychadelia from San Francisco. Their Electric Sunset EP hits in September.
2. Birthdays – Van Hands
Hip hop-inspired slight Animal Collective dreamy homage.
3. Aether – Such Charm
Yes, the opening croon sounds a bit like Chris Martin. But keep listening and the insistent synths we’ll draw you in.
4. AC Berkheimer – Off You Go
Nice 80s gloomy number. One of two nice tracks the Dutch band is offering for free on their site.
5. Cut Copy – Where I’m Going
6. Bubblegum Lemonade – Last Time I Saw Andrew
I think this is the only UK track on a S2 mix! Scottish band deliver the draggy/baggy goods.
7. Ride – Time Of Her Time
A classic off Going Blank Again. Decided it’s time to get a Ride t-shirt…anyone have some good options?
8. Adam Franklin & The Bolts Of Melody – I’ll Be Yr Mechanic
Any song with an opening line like “As the gas station burns…” is ok in my book.
AF’s last album was okay, but his new one I Could Sleep For A Thousand Years is really doing it. Hard to choose the one we liked most, so we caved and went with the one that sounded most like his beloved Swervedriver.
9. Lilys – The Any Several Sundays
When I first heard this at Rotate This it blew my mind. Eastern guitar, mid-sixties Byrds, mod chords and some serious drone add up to one monster of a tune.
10. Cloudlight Canyon – Mothlight Pt. 2
Cape Verde dream rockers enthrall for five plus minutes.
11. Megaphonic Thrift – Undertow
Norweigan rockers telling us to turn…it…up. And drive faster.
12. The Secret Machines – Road Lead Where It’s Led
…Which then reminds me of this band and their fantastic Now Here Is Nowhere.
13. Holy Hail – Feels Like Forever
14. The Lost Rivers – Stay
My Beatific Vision indeed. Buzzsaw guitars, 60s beat way more intense than the Raveonettes.
15. Buke and Gass – Medulla Oblongata
What a voice! Crazy bombastic rock and roll with vocals hooks to spare.
16. Moonbeams – I Am Forgotten
West coast band brings some glorious desolation to wind down the mix.
