The amount of amazing new tunes has slowed a little bit, so we’re playing some of the great stuff kicking around the iPod.
1. Stagnant Pools – Dead Sailor
Walls of guitar by a band that is getting more essential with each new release.
2. The Creakies – Arnold’s Song
Can’t remember the last time we’ve featured a Seattle band as good as these guys.
3. The Poumons – Rock And Roll City
I’d always associated this band with the 90s Halifax Pop Explosion. But seems they’re from Windsor?
4. The Clean – Drawing To A Hole
Flying Nun…that is all.
6. Neutral Milk Hotel – Ghost
Sublime, passionate indie rock taken from one of my fave albums of all time, In The Aeroplane, Over The Sea.
7. Airwaves – Keys
Slowing it down a bit with some midtempo Brooklyn indie rock.
8. Built To Spill – Carry The Zero
Fantastic songwriting, please meet smoking playing. Absolutely incendiary.
9. The Raconteurs – Intimate Secretary
Not a typical band to feature for a S2 mix, but this is pretty trippy business.
10. Chapterhouse – Greater Power
Overlooked Blood Music shoegaze anthem.
12. The Lassie Foundation – Three Wheels
Sadly defunct band dropped this shoegaze nugget on Jetstreams a few years back.
14. Maps – Elouise
I can’t help but return to the awesomeness of We Can Create: “Hypocrites can’t look me in the eye.”
15. Caribou – I’ve Live On A Dirt Road All My Life
Fantastic floating-in-space electronic psychedelia.
16. Quickspace – Coca Lola
This is all krautrock until you get to the gonzo chorus. It’ll get in ya.
18. Lumerians – Track 1
There was no question this voodoo psych groove is our song of the week. Strongly recommend you drop it at a party and see what happens…
Girls Names, White Denim, Disappears, Adorable, Stellarscope & more
1. White Denim – Drug
2. The Dukes Of Stratosphear – You’re My Drug
The last song inspired this one from XTC‘s groovy summer of love side project.
3. Girls Names – Seance On A Saturday Afternoon
Belfast blast of reverb-drenched garage with a Teenage Shutdown feel.
4. Lumerians – Burning Mirrors
Descending into the murky depths…
5. Disappears – Radiation
Jam session recorded in what seems to be an abandoned nuclear facility.
New ringing shoegaze/rock anthem from a very fruitful collaboration. More please!
7. Invisible Days – Daysleeping
Beautiful tune with noisy, exploding choruses.
8. Odio Paris – Cuando Nadie Pone Un Disco
Break out the air guitars and drums. Another toe tapper from Spanish band.
9. Adorable – I’ll Be Your Saint
Classic UK shoegaze.
10. Dead Electric – Light Years Ahead, Behind
Lovely winter shimmering shoegaze tune.
11. Moonbeams – Kathleen
From MS: “A bedroom project consisting of hypnotic, echoing guitar tracks that swirl and blend together over hushed vocals and basic chord progressions. An homage to out of print records, the anti-rock band attitude, and the do it yourself mentality.”
12. Stellarscope – This Is Something New
Like the intimate, somewhat claustrophobic feel on this Philly band’s tune.
13. Big Spider’s Back – Perfect Machine
Full blown and full colour keyboard driven soundtrack.
14. Millionyoung – Perfect Eyes
Lovely, hopeful combination of guitar and synthesizer. And yes, I just played two songs in a row that had the word “perfect” in their title.
15. The Leaf Library – Light & Colour
Dreamy, slightly baroque indie pop.
16. John Maus – Do Your Best
Multi-tracked soulful crooning over chillwave beats. Very nice.
17. Candi And The Strangers – Glide
Texan dream pop tune that’s available for free download from their site.
