1.   Para Siempre – Adolescence

Starting things off with in the red, urgent yet murky punky pop.

2.   The Catherine Wheel – Let Me Down Again

Black Metallic rocker with just deadly choruses. This one’ll get inside your head.

3.   Future Islands – Walking Through That Door

Just a fantastic song with glorious synth work and a great groove. Never want this to end.

4.   Medicine – Astral Gravy

Brash, glammy rock and roll from 2003’s The Mechanical Forces Of Love.

5.   Tame Impala – Alter Ego

A highlight they dropped at last night’s show at The Phoenix. But then they topped it – by covering Massive Attack‘s Angel! Was also surprised to see they weren’t using drum samples…the drummer was amazing.

6.   Crystal Stilts – Silver Sun

Another one from the Brooklynites’ new record. They’ve struck a nice mod-surf vibe on it.

7.   Lowtide – Underneath Tonight

Shoegaze pop from last year’s You Are My Good Light EP.

8.   Elf Power – Skeleton

One of the more sinister tracks off the Elephant 6 band’s The Winter Is Coming album.

9.   10 Second Dynasty – Endless Drive

Epic 10-minute shoegaze anthem. Anyone have info on this band they can share?

10.  Black Forest Of Opium – Afyonkarahisar Battle Cry

Winner of this week’s award for Most Embarassing Band Name To Have To Say You’re Listening To. Great drone-y tune with some heavy lyrics about crushing down enemies.

11.  The Voices – When The Black Sun Sets

More shoegaze psych off the Cardiff band’s Death Of A Lover’s Song album.

12.  The People’s Temple – Sons Of Stone

Killer drone psych that is a must for fans of Brian Jonestown Massacre or The Black Angels. The vocalist reminds me of someone, but I just can’t my finger on it…[Update: Turns out it was Chris Wilson of the Flamin’ Groovies.]

13.  The Morning Clouds – The Wrong Things

New track that channels the classic reverb-heavy ballads of the 60s.

13.  Pacific UV – Float

Free track from April available through their site. Brings Spiritualized to mind.

14.  Ghost Animal – In Your Room (Golden Ages remix)

Churning guitars and insistent synths over heart-on-sleeve vocals. Original’s nice too.

15.  Pale Suns – Here Is

Shimmering waves of noisy beauty.

16.  Sun Glitters – Everything Could Be Fine (The Astroboy remix)

Oscillating intense electronic remix takes us home.
