1.   Deep Cut – Makes Me Wanna

London crew kicks things off with some fist pumping rock and roll.

2.   Crash City Saints – Fuck And Destroy

Chiming shoegaze that’s much sweeter than the title suggests.

3.   Regina – Jos Et Sä Soita

They’re Finnish, but the sound is straight up groovy J-pop meets shoegaze.

4.   Shelby – The Wait

Hooks aplenty on this indie rock tune. Just discovered them recently.

5.   The Brother Kite – Death Ray

Shoegaze overload interspersed with great melodic vocals.

6.   Christiana – Pretend

Tune from defunct Canadian band  that somehow reminds me of a free ride down a seaside highway.

7.   Skull Defekts – Fragrant Nimbus

Half-sung, half-spoken menacing punk noise with a frightening middle part. This is Iggy Pop meets Sonic Youth.

8.   Helium – Lady Of The Fire

Boston-based Matador 90s heroes drop some psych sitar from The Magic City.

9.   Run Run Run – Drizzle

Great dark power pop out of LA.

10.  Secret Colours – Follow The Drone

This is drone rock for BRMC fans. Bonus points for being from Chicago yet using English/Canadian spelling.

11.  Shy – Shift

California midtempo shoegaze that brings to mind both Archers Of Loaf and Swervedriver.

12.  Jennifer Castle – Misguided

Beautiful, ethereal float-down-a-river experience from Castlemusic.

13.  Efrim Menuck – Our Lady of Parc Extension and Her Munificent Sorrows

Godspeed mainman delivers a singalong from the planet Venus.

14.  The Besnard Lakes – On Bedford and Grand

Last podcast I referenced them, so here’s the real deal from their first album. Fantastic.

15.  Miracle Fortress – Seabird

Poppy chillwave meets Animal Collective with soul: “Somebody deliver the truth to me…”

16.  Mode Moderne – Real Goths

Rainy day, 80s influenced chillwave out of Toronto. Lovely mood here and good lyrics: “I’ve got the body of a  man who reads poetry…”

17.  Seavault – Cornfields

Moody electronic drone pop tune out of the UK.

18.  Loney Dear – Take My Hand

Near instrumental that would be perfect for the closing scene and credits of virtually any film. Surprised to learn these guys are Swedish and not Canadian.
