Soundtrack2 Audiocast37: Pulses

The Octopus Project, Battles, Faunts, Wavves, Toro Y Moi & more.


If you choose blips and beats over guitars and drums, this audiocast is for you. We’ve put some recent and classic electronic favourites together into one mix.

It’s not beat-mixed. Didn’t have time but maybe I’ll do for the next electronic mix…

1. Faunts – Feel. Love. Thinking. Of.

Edmonton band gets things rolling with lovely electro pop off the album of the same name.

2. Toro Y Moi – Blessa

A pleasant afternoon stroll on another planet.

3. Caribou – Thistles And Felt

Love the guitar strumming over some chanting and beats. Off Up In Flames, but also check out his latest album.

4. Deep Dish – Awake Enough

This starts like the sunny electronica the duo is known for, but I included because of the layers of spacey synths.

5. Wavves – Cool Jumper

This tune defies any label and description. It doesn’t really fit anywhere so I thought I’d drop this crashing melodic assault here.

6. M83 – Run Into Flowers

Dreamy electronic bliss.

7. Tape Deck Mountain – On My Honor (Letting Up Despite Great Faults Remix)

“I swore I would stay.” Organs add to the urgent drama of the beats.

8. Popnoname – Hello Gorgeous (Terranova Remix)

Minimalist techno mystery Germany. Wait till the beat kicks in.

9. Moonstarr – Interplanetary Thoughts In Flight

Spacey electro off the excellent Dupont album. And the first track we’ve played to feature a vocoder!

10. Technasia – Force

A classic from a few years back. They have a new album out at the end of May.

11.  Jake Fairley – Mosquito

Noisy techno off 2005’s Touch Not The Cat. Former a member of Uncut, now goes by Fairmont.

12. Broadcast – Black Cat

A lyric in this song sums this band up perfectly to me: “Curiouser and curiouser.”

13. Battles – Leyendecker

Don’t really know what this is, but I like the dark mystery. Post-something?

14.  Neon Indian – Ephemeral Artery

Chromeo‘s evil twin from Austin via Brooklyn.

15. Ratatat – Mirando

Imagine Queen guitars over bouncy trip hop.

16. The Octopus Project – Ghost Moves

Bombastic anthem takes us home.
