Manuel Gottsching’s Ashra takes us on a spacey trip through the sparse outer limits of space-time with this experimental electronics gem titled “Shuttle Cocks.”
Minimal drums frame the eternally looping guitars while the funky bass line drives up front. Who says krauts can’t boogie? This cut is from the 1977 album Blackouts.
Look like one of these guys?

It’s hot. Real hot. Need to be cooled down or get the blood boling?
Listen & enjoy.
1. Windsor For The Derby – Queen Of The Sun
Lovely dream pop from upcoming album Against Love.
2. Stripmall Architecture – Pripyat
Can’t get this one out of my head. Download the elements to remix this yourself.
3. Phillip Eno – Your Name
More fuzzed out dream pop. The band has made this song and a lot more available for free download on their site.
4. Flavor Crystals – Ambergris
A bit of Yo La Tengo vibe here. One of many great tracks on the Minneapolis band’s Ambergris album.
5. Alcoholic Faith Mission – My Eyes To See
Nervy Danish band deliver passionate indie pop.
6. Nikoo – Marquee
Been listening to this hard-to-describe band for a while. Their self-titled album is very good.
7. Sea Exchange – Schemes
Bit of shoegaze indie pop here. Both of their EPs are great and available for free.
8. Dropping Honey – Foveaux
Watch out! This track by this Sydney, Australia band starts funky but gets huge and noisy.
9. Sennen – Can’t See The Light
Not a huge fan of this band, but their most recent tracks are less murky. This dark shoegaze track is off last month’s Age of Denial.
10. Garageland – Never Gonna Come Round Here Again
Flying Nun band brings some driving rock and roll off 1996’s Last Exit To Garageland.
11. Ursula Minor – Westphalia
Killer Krautrock. Be sure to check out this Glasgow band’s varied Laudanum album.
12. Band In Heaven – Tunnel Into Your Dreams
Ambient rock off their free demos bandcamp page.
13. School of Seven Bells – Babelonia
Disconnect From Desire won’t be out until July, but this is more than enough to keep me satisfied.
14. Swathes – Very White
Noisy, dense industrial/shoegaze builder.
15. K-X-P – 18 Hours (Of Love)
According to XLR8R, this band provides “Spaced-out Krautrock-meets-drummy-disco dance party.” Can’t find any info online so here’s a good Altsounds post.
