1.   Hunters – Brat Mouth

Love this garage tune and its awesome surf punk chorus. Midsong cacophony included!

2.   Yuck – The Wall

Great rock and roll tune from Daytrotter. Kept passing this one over since it’s not what we normally play. Check out Stereogum‘s chat with them about their influences.

3.   Sleeping Bag – Slime

Good old fashioned American drone-y power pop.

4.   Folie Adieu – Sacrificial Anode

Bring on the spiralling shoegaze.

5.   Myty Konkeror – Whitewash

Really nice mid-90s indie rock vibe here. Love it! Pick it up on I Miss The Future.

6.   duel – Wisher

This Swedish band might just out-Swervedriver Swervedriver.

7.   28 Degrees Taurus – Electricity

Continuing the long tradition of great songs titled electricity (Spiritualized, Suede), this murky, psych tune is a killer. The rest of the record is, um…interesting.

8.   Lüger – Dracula’s Chaffeur Wants More

Don’t be thrown off by the kooky title. This adrenaline-fuelled ride is the real deal. Sweet buildup too.

9.   Letting Up Despite Great Faults – I Feel You Happen

Dark, beautiful whisper croon overtop pounding shoegaze. Very nice.

10.  The War On Drugs – Original Slave

Huge buzz about this album, and well deserved. This instrumental’s perfect for train rides through stawberry fields. Yes, I know that was cheesy. Dig the “Psychotic Reaction” harmonica.

11.  I Break Horses – Winter Beats

Another very buzzy band with shimmering, wistful electronic dream pop.

12.  Slow Loris – Golden Lines

Some nice afternooon slacker indie rock out of Wisconsin.

13.  Kyla La Grange – Walk Through Walls (Communion Version)

Powerful, heart-on-sleeve indie in the vein of Young Galaxy or The Besnard Lakes.

14.  The Sunshine Factory – Chainsaw Girl

Their latest – smooth pastoral dream pop.

15.  Joy Zipper – Christmas Song

Sacrilege! An organ-based psych droner oldie off American Whip.

16.  Reverie Sound Revue – I Could Be Dangerous

Hard to describe this one, but there’s a cool bossa groove here somewhere.

17.  Burning Hearts – Into The Wilderness

Widescreen 80s-influenced midtempo tune closes the show. Thank you.
