Sountrack2 Ep. 47: Rocket Fuzz

Ringo Deathstarr, Chapterhouse, Dead Leaf Echo, Spotlight Kid, Husky Rescue & more


Non-stop shoegaze anthems turn sweet and lovely. Sorta.

1. Ringo Deathstarr – Imagine Hearts

Shoegaze funk off Colour Trip. If the new album has more like this, I’m sold.

2. Husky Rescue – Fast Lane

Groovy indie pop with bursts of guitar. Grab it on their latest Ship Of Light.

3. Maikotobranco – Hello, Goodbye

Heroic rock and roll, more indebted to Rush or Yes than The Velvet Underground. Blistering drums and guitar riffery. Shoegaze prog?

4. Simon Says No! – See Me Through

Dark garage from Oslo band. Check out their self-titled debut.

5. Loomer – Rocket Fuzz

Though named after a My Bloody Valentine song, I’m hearing Dinosaur Jr. and nods to The Wedding Present.

6. Catherine Wheel – Free Of Mind

Sinister beauty off of 30 Century Man. Tracks like this make me consider doing a Catherine Wheel podcast.

7.   Spotlight Kid – All Is Real

Swervedriver-loving UK band swirl away to great effect.

8. Triángulo de Amor Bizarro – El Fantasma De La Transición

Spanish band delivers a noisier version of Broken Social Scene.

9. Mash – Rise

Will not do lazy band comparison….will not do lazy band comparison…glammy J-rock melts into downtempo groove then acoustic coda.

10. Dead Leaf Echo – Act Of Truth

Breathy dream pop that brings to mind Spandau Ballet‘s “True.” There, I said it…but it’s good.

11. Chapterhouse – Treasure

Still kicking myself that we missed this show. But maybe we’ll get it together for Ride‘s second coming.

12. Motorifik – Secret Things

Don’t dismiss this French band as mere Spector wall of sound pastiche. Love the textures over Go-Betweens melodies.

13. For A Minor Reflection – Flóð

Icelandic mellow post rock tune off the Rejkavik sampler comp. Big finish.

14. British Sea Power – Bear

New Zeus tune sounds like a classic mellow number of theirs: “How could you fall so far?” Then they take off.

15. My Bloody Valentine – Blown A Wish

Visitors from another planet touch down.
