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.
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.
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.
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.
The Jezabels, Bliss.City.East, The War On Drugs, Phantogram, Malajube & more
2. Malajube - Synesthésie
Also on the bill at the BL show. Great spacey pop tune, available for download off their site.
4. Spiritualized – Electricity
Playing Spectrum last week made me think of this – the first track Iever heard by Jason Pierce.
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.
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.”
