Howdy. Until we do our special psych-only audiocast, we kick things off with back-to-back face-melting tunes, then dig into some shoegaze, dream pop and electronic goodness. No Frank Zappa this time.
1. Cold Pumas – Tropical Guilt
Brighton-based group get us stated with a great track. Urgent, repetitive rock and roll, available from Fader.
2. Woven Bones – With You Alone
3. Stellarium – Chocolate & Strawberry
Love this loud shoegazer track.
4. Sun Dial – Open Your Eyes
5. Quest For Fire – In The Place Of A Storm
Now we’s getting ‘eavy. Toronto group goes deep into the void, from upcoming 7″ with Nebula.
6. Ulaan Khol – Untitled 2
7. Yppah – They Know What Ghost Know
Great groovy, building psych from a band that I like more and more. Can’t get enough of the swirling Ray Manzarek organ overtop.
8. The Turn-Ons – PS I Love You
And we’re back to some fabulous shoegaze on the Lilys tip.
9. Echodrone – Winter Station
Slowing it down (sorta) with a new one of their album The Sun Rose In A Different Place.
10. The Low Sea – I Know
Lazy track off the very good new album Las Olas.
11. Thrushes – Night Falls
I’m risking a talking-to from Chris for including this one off their new Night Falls. Check out the building intensity.
12. Pure Ecstasy – Voices
Second Austin band included on this week’s audiocast. Nice moody number available from RCRDLBL.
13. Zola Jesus – I Can’t Stand
Also downloadable, this curious “grower” comes off Stridulum.
14. The Depreciation Guild – My Chariot
New dream pop of the highest order.
Love, love, love this track. Never expected to play James Lavelle on our mixes. Pick it up or grab Where Did The Night Fall in May.
16. Light Pollution – Good Feelings
MySpace page: “Religious / Psychedelic / Healing & Easy Listening.”
17. Growing – Innit
Been waiting for the right occasion to drop this six-minute-plus journey. Think this is it.
No Age, Depreciation Guild, Radio Dept., Salem, Mondo Jet Set & more
New tracks from No Age, The Depreciation Guild and The Radio Dept.! Check it out on this week’s mix…
1. No Age – Hard Trash
Mellow floating in space track starts us off. From a recent Daytrotter session, this band continues to impress with their range and creativity.
2. Daylight’s For The Birds – Please
Straight up dream pop from 2006’s very nice Trouble Everywhere record.
3. My Majestic Star – Silver Tongues
Downtempo dream pop with a shot of 1970s jazz fusion. Check out last year’s I Haven’t Got it In Me.
4. Salem – Brustreet
Beautiful shoegaze with melody lifted from The Boss’ Streets Of Philadelphia. This is not the Israeli death metal band nor the Swedish band…would like to tell you more but their MySpace page is toast.
5. The Radio Dept. – Heaven’s On Fire
Another instant rainy day classic from Radio Dept. This one’s off Clinging To A Scheme, due out next month.
6. The Depreciation Guild – Dream About Me
U.S. band drop new single. Lovely stuff!
7. The Sunshine Factory – Roving Eye
8. Mondo Jet Set – Nightnurse
Cool track from a few years’ back off Henry After A Nightlife. Vocals remind me a bit of The Pernice Brothers but they’ve got an indie, slightly trippy rock sound.
Loving this track from last fall. I didn’t think either of these bands did this kind of swirling, noisy shoegaze. File under the “never want this track to end” category.
10. The Man I Fell In Love With – Never Ever Even
Not sure how to describe this one. Bit of math-rock overtop some noisy indie rock?
11. Mustafa Et Monique – Monaural Tone Revolver
Highly disorted, dense rock and roll from 2005’s Houdini Aubergine EP.
12. Technoir MA – Sparks
Love this guitar-led minor epic by the Massachusetts band of the Sonic Youth school.
13. True Womanhood – Shadow People
Off last month’s Basement Membranes EP, this dark, cool rock and roll track will have your reaching for your shades.
14. Six By Seven – Candlelight
1998 Britpoppy goodness out of Nottingham.
15. White Come Come – Broken Bird
16. The Tamborines – Sally O’Gannon
Bright, noisy melody off the EP of the same name. If you like early Dandy Warhols, you’ll dig this.
17. Shark? – Titanz
