Soundtrack2 Ep. 104: Movies Without Sound

Crocodiles, Handsome Furs, Here We Go Magic, Garbage, pacificUV & more

Things are heating up.

1.   Here We Go Magic – How Do I Know
Starting with a fix of glorious twee indie pop.

2.  Crocodiles – Endless Flowers
Lots of well-deserved buzz about this shoegaze garage band. Looking forward to release of Endless Flowers next month.

3.   Zero Toy – Michael
Gotta love the reverb on the guitar here. Gimme L.A. indie rock!

4.   Stagnant Pools – Nothing To Do
Submerged shoegaze off Real Lies.

5.   Garbage – Felt
Nice shoegazey track off their latest Not Your Kind Of People. Anyone see the Foo Fighters doc and get a glimpse of Butch Vig in the studio?

6.   Stay Calm – Let Me Clear My Throat
A minor epic that brings to mind S2 faves The Secret Machines.

7.   2PPM – Movies Without Sound
Sounds like a jam session at 3 a.m. in an abandoned warehouse. Their moniker stands for “two people playing music.”

8.   Monoland – Alba
Classic shoegaze sound from Manouva.

9.  Centro-Matic – Janitorial On Channel Fail
Full blown, emotional crunchy 90s rock a la Yo La Tengo or Guided By Voices. No idea what the lyrics are saying, but they sound profound.

10.  The New Year – The Block That Doesn’t Exist
Neurotic lo-fi of the billiantly-named Newness Ends album.

11.  Meat Puppets – Severed Goddess Hand
I’ve been wanting to play this Too High To Die song here for years. Enjoy the sunburnt psych funk.

12.  Damien Jurado – Reel To Reel
Second track we’ve played from the sublime and soulful Maraqopa.

13.  Airiel – Funerals
More stratospheric shoegaze from latest EP Kid Games.

14.  Melody’s Echo Chamber – Crystalized
Imagine Rachel Goswell fronting Tame Impala and you’ve got our track of the week.

15.  pacificUV – Be My Only Shallow Love (remix)
Prolific band drop more shoegaze and beats.

16.  Ladyhawke – Black, White and Blue (All Saints basement session)
Nice groovy pop track with bouncy chorus.

17.  School Of Seven Bells – When You Sing
Lose yourself in this monster Ghost Story track.

18.  Handsome Furs – Dead + Rural
Chrome Waves tells me this Wolf Parade spinoff has called it a day. Here’s a fitting farwell. On a related note, it appears that Dan Boeckner has a new band with Britt Daniel of Spoon and Sam Brown of New Bomb Turks.

1.   The Besnard Lakes – And This Is What We Call Progress
Last week’s show at Toronto’s Lee’s Palace was mindblowing. Here’s the song they opened with.

2.   Malajube – Synesthésie
Also on the bill at the BL show. Great spacey pop tune, available for download off their site.

3.   The Jezabels – Endless Summer
Ringing shoegaze guitar with classic pop songcraft. Reminds me of LoveLikeFire.

4.   Spiritualized – Electricity
Playing Spectrum last week made me think of this – the first track Iever heard by Jason Pierce.

5.   Duffy & The Doubters – Sorry Mom My Brain Is Dumb
Garage pop from Duffy of Ladyhawk.

6.   Bliss.City.East – I Like You
This Exposition track is a chilled shoegaze anthem in waiting.

7.   Lavalsa – She Floats
Brazilian grungy greatness.

8.   Trans Am – Carboforce
Words cannot describe how much these guys rock. Killer tension and release.

9.   The Soft Moon – We Are We
Nihilism you can nod your head to.

10.  Garbage – Supervixen
Risking my street cred a bit here, but I’ve been hearing lots of new stuff that sounds like this.

11.  Austra – Spellwork (Young Galaxy Remix)
YG channeling their inner New Order.

12.  Phantogram – Don’t Move
Nice bit of dreamy electronic pop: “I’m not your paranoia…”

13.  Warm Ghost – Once One
Abstract woozy chillwave from Brooklyn.

14.  The War On Drugs – Come To The City
There are so many good tunes on Slave Ambient that I had to play a second track. Huge journeyman anthem.

15.  Pressed And – Raid
From their page: “A complex interplay of primal effects and synth landscapes, rife with tension in a cascading sequence of loops and glowing drones.”
