1. Japandroids – Continuous Thunder
4. Swervedriver – The Birds
On a bit of a late-period kick for some classic shoegaze bands. This one’s from 1998’s excellent Ejector Seat Reservation.
5. Grooms – Dreamsucker
Some hyper Brooklyn rock and roll.
6. Eternal Summers – Wonder
Propulsive power pop out of Virginia.
8. Ride – Gonna Be Alright
More late period Britpop goodness off overlooked Tarantula.
10. Grave Babies – Fuck Off
An atmospheric, reverb-drenched anthem off Gothdammit.
11. Pontiak – Royal Colors
Switching gears from trenchcoats to brain melting psych. That’s just how we roll.
14. The Steals – All Coming Back
Lovely dream pop from a few years back.
15. Beach House – Lazuli
I wasn’t crazy about first single “Myth” so I’ve slept on this album. Then this track drew me back to the mothership.
16. Cloud – Childhood
This chillwave track sounds like it’s been playing in my head for years.
17. Post War Years – Glass House
Track of the week: glorious electro pop from the UK.
18. Diiv – Wait
Some nice shoegaze from new album Oshin (get it?) on Captured Tracks.
The Vandelles, The Twilight Sad, P.S. Eliot, Moonbell, Low & more.
1. Working For A Nuclear Free City – Eighty Eight
Felt the need to start off with a stunner, but nothing new turned my crank. Dug up this rock and roll from Businessmen & Ghosts.
2. Skywave – Angela’s An Angel
Noisy assault from a fantastic, overlooked band.
3. Electro Group – Manimal
Distorted, bass-heavy rock and roll in the vein of Autolux.
4. Headless Horseman – Wavlngth
From last October, this indie curio has a certain swing that moves me. Check it out on RCRD LBL.
5. P.S. Eliot – Watch On Mute
Short, punky rock and roll off Sadie, their new EP which they’ve made available for download here. I’ve liked this band for some time, but haven’t found many tracks that I love yet.
6. Seapony – Dreaming
Sarah Records revival! Damn catchy.
7. Dum Dum Girls – There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
Smiths covers are tricky, especially with a signature tune like this one. But they pull it off on this one from He Gets Me High.
8. Matthew CH Tong – Present And Correct
9. Young Adults – Campfires
From November’s Black Hole, this is a great, dense instrumental.
10. Tjutjuna – Rise # Set
Over nine minutes of pedal-to-the-medal space rock. Watch these guys.
11. Woodsman – Serfer
Great, abstract indie rock.
Their new Summer Fling EP inspired the photo for this week’s post. Kinda surf-y, but with a lot more going on.
13. Moonbell – Figurine
Off the EP of the same name, this band puts out wonderful, sluggish psych tunes.
14. The Upsidedown – Dutchess Of York
15. The Twilight Sad – And She Would Darken The Memory
Desolate, gripping classic off their first album Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters. Great use of noise.
16. Cowboy Junkies – Lay It Down
Not a band we’d normally feature here, but this tracks has a great mellow, psych edge that sets the next song up perfectly.
17. Low – Nothing But Heart
Crunchy, Neil Young guitar starts us off, then this gem just floats upwards. Nice to see Low, with their new album C’mon, reminding us how music = passion.
