Soundtrack2 Audiocast37: Pulses

The Octopus Project, Battles, Faunts, Wavves, Toro Y Moi & more.


If you choose blips and beats over guitars and drums, this audiocast is for you. We’ve put some recent and classic electronic favourites together into one mix.

It’s not beat-mixed. Didn’t have time but maybe I’ll do for the next electronic mix…

1. Faunts – Feel. Love. Thinking. Of.

Edmonton band gets things rolling with lovely electro pop off the album of the same name.

2. Toro Y Moi – Blessa

A pleasant afternoon stroll on another planet.

3. Caribou – Thistles And Felt

Love the guitar strumming over some chanting and beats. Off Up In Flames, but also check out his latest album.

4. Deep Dish – Awake Enough

This starts like the sunny electronica the duo is known for, but I included because of the layers of spacey synths.

5. Wavves – Cool Jumper

This tune defies any label and description. It doesn’t really fit anywhere so I thought I’d drop this crashing melodic assault here.

6. M83 – Run Into Flowers

Dreamy electronic bliss.

7. Tape Deck Mountain – On My Honor (Letting Up Despite Great Faults Remix)

“I swore I would stay.” Organs add to the urgent drama of the beats.

8. Popnoname – Hello Gorgeous (Terranova Remix)

Minimalist techno mystery Germany. Wait till the beat kicks in.

9. Moonstarr – Interplanetary Thoughts In Flight

Spacey electro off the excellent Dupont album. And the first track we’ve played to feature a vocoder!

10. Technasia – Force

A classic from a few years back. They have a new album out at the end of May.

11.  Jake Fairley – Mosquito

Noisy techno off 2005’s Touch Not The Cat. Former a member of Uncut, now goes by Fairmont.

12. Broadcast – Black Cat

A lyric in this song sums this band up perfectly to me: “Curiouser and curiouser.”

13. Battles – Leyendecker

Don’t really know what this is, but I like the dark mystery. Post-something?

14.  Neon Indian – Ephemeral Artery

Chromeo‘s evil twin from Austin via Brooklyn.

15. Ratatat – Mirando

Imagine Queen guitars over bouncy trip hop.

16. The Octopus Project – Ghost Moves

Bombastic anthem takes us home.

Soundtrack2 Audiocast35: Destroy The Heart

House Of Love, Lush, Bear In Heaven, The Horrors, M83 & more

A bit late with this one. Dusting off a few classics and dropping some new-ish stuff.

[display podcast]

1. House of Love – Destroy The Heart

Banging, glorious 1988 single.

2.   A.R. Kane – Insect Love

Noisy 1989 pop number from the band behind Pump Up The volume.

3. Lush – Superblast (Remix)

Washed out rock and roll by seminal shoegaze band. Remixed courtesy of Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins.

4. The Jennifers – Danny’s Song

Baggy pop from band that went on to become Supergrass.

5. Madder Rose – Drop A Bomb

American band provide noisy power pop, featured on the My So-Called Life soundtrack.

6. Rraaiillss – The Peeling

Distorted and dreamy rock and roll out of LA. Check out their bandcamp.

7. Nervous Systems – Sometimes I Am A Verb

Great band with a great album in Needs Medicines. This song popped for me. Could it be the GBV sound?

8. M83 – Don’t Save Us From The Flames

Fabulous dreamy electronic rock melodrama from Before The Dawn Heals Us.

9. The Horrors – Who Can Say

Re-discovering this fuzzy gem off Primary Colours.

10. Mugstar – Today Is The Wrong Shape

“Rock/Experimental/Psychedelic.” Check.

11. Blind Shake – St. Paul Creamery

Garage rock and roll from the Twin Cities. Never has a song about the dairy industry sounded so menacing.

12. Soft Moon – Breathe the Fire

Tense post punk drenched in reverb.

13. Snowden – No Words No More (EP version)

4 a.m. bombed out blues. Check it out on their new EP, available free from their website.

14. Lab Partners – We’ve Been Burned

Ohio band that brings to mind the epicness of The Verve. Refreshing.

15. Panda Riot – 16 Seconds

Very excited to play some new stuff from this band. Lovely harmony-heavy pop shoegaze. Far & Near comes out May 11.

16. Bear In Heaven – Dust Cloud

This band is a grower. Their Beast Rest Forth Mouth has been with me for some time. The music (and the compelling cover art) has slowly bewitched me. Recommend repeated listens to Dust Cloud. Uncategorizable.

17. Bad Veins – Go Home

Dreamy electronic torch song with horns! Love the mood on this track.
