1. The Spits – Last Man On Earth
5…4…3…Wake up with this new off-kilter space punk.
2. Digital Leather – Young Doctors In Love
Facebook page doesn’t reveal much, but loving this album’s melodic post punk and killer chorus. And I’m not even a doctor.
4. Car Seat Headrest – Bodys
Ah, Brooklyn. Six minutes of stream-of-consciousness vocals and ecstatic indie rock.
5. Dream Brother – Pretty Eyes
A bit poppy for us, but this song is just so damn catchy!
7. Field Mouse – You Guys Are Gonna Wake Up My Mom
Some wistful, dreamy pop out of Brooklyn.
8. A Classic Education – Night Owl
Slowing it down. Lovely guitar work. Find it on October’s Call It Blazing.
10. Yo La Tengo – Pablo and Andrea
An Electr-O-Pura classic. “Show me where you hide all your secrets upstairs…” Love when the guitars come in.
11. Caveman – Easy Water
The track of the week comes from Coco Beware, a fantastic record released last fall. The mysterious intensity of this track stood out for me.
12. Red Horses Of The Snow – Airborne
Brilliant song that seems like an instant mellow shoegaze anthem. And what a voice!
14. Aerofall – Up’s & Down’s
Straightforward, almost hypnotic chord progression with layers and layers of guitar.
15. The Hang Ups – Sweet Tooth
A nice one from the 90s indie rock heroes So We Go album.
16. Pale Saints – Angel (Will You Be My)
Blistering shoegaze pop tune that’s perfect for dancing around your bedroom.
17. Luminous Orange – Walkblind
Superplastic stunner by the Japanese shoegazers.
18. Apteka – Gravesend
Very excited to hear new stuff from this band. In their words: “We play rock music. We like large kick drums, tube amplification, and face melting.” Hear hear.

Do you get a huge smile across your face every time a Ride song kicks in? I do. Especially with this rare track’s catchy, hopeful vibe.

A shoegaze rock and roll classic from In Ribbons.
10. Ume – Captive
Austin band’s latest track is post punk with a bit of Metric thrown in. Check their site for a link to the free download.
11. Frankie Rose – Soma
My fave cover from Stereogum’s very good Stroked covers album. Fits quite nicely here, if I must say.
12. Cave – Adam Roberts
Chicago band drops some driving psych motorik electronica. Is that a Farfisa I hear? Looking forward to Neverendless dropping Sept. 20.
13. The Horrors – Moving Further Away
They return with 8 minutes of Neu!-inspired loveliness. Another curveball from the ever-changing band, but works for me.
14. Morpheme – Red Dog
15. Teenage Sin Taste – Some Girls Are Darker Than Others
Music fit for wearing a trenchcoat and sunglasses, preferably at night. Cheers to WTSH for the tip.

Slowing it waaay down now. Preview of the dreamy chillwave coming out on next album Era Extraña.
17. Youth Lagoon – July
We’re continuing our tradition of ending with a massive tune, so prepare to be stirred with this one.
