3. Letting Up Despite Great Faults – Helium
Recently I heard someone describe music as fitting into one of two categories: sounding like New Order and not sounding like New Order. I’d put this hazy electronic track in the latter category, with a bit of 8-bit thrown in.
4. Bear In Heaven – Sinful Nature
The track of the week is off I Love You, It’s Cool out April 3. And it’s killer.
5. She’s So Rad – Sinful Nature
If you like pounding electronica with layers of guitar and synth, crank this.

10. West Indian Girl – Still Lost
Nice ethereal groove from a few years back. Wasn’t sure if they’re still around, but their Twitter account says an album is in the works.
12. The Beta Band – Needles In My Eyes
Chill psych classic off the Scottish band’s 3 EPs. Way more than the sum of its guitar, drums and organ parts.

First you’re floating in space, then you’re jumping on your bed playing air guitar.
