1. School of Seven Bells – The Night
New sublime electronic dream pop that should make you very happy. Look for it on Ghoststory.
2. Pterodactyl – School Glue
Noise rock that seemed to go perfectly with the previous tune. Now I’m not so sure…
3. MaoTzu – Case Closed
Freak frenzied folk psychedelia out of Chicago.
5. The Faux Noise – Oh Father (Hymn)
Wonderful head-nodding shoegaze.
6. Earthquake Party – Pretty Little Hand
Walls of garage guitar meet guy/girl pop harmonies.
8. Deardarkhead – Invisible
Recently released on Captured Tracks’ new Oceanside: 1991-1993, this is just one of several killer tracks from this obscure shoegaze band.
9. Maribel – Jezebel Jive
My ears perked up at this new track from their second album Reveries due out in 2012. It’s hard to describe their sound, so according them: “Maribel play dark, slow-burning dream-pop drawing on a wide range of influences from film noir to J Dilla.”
10. Screen Vinyl Image – Revival
Rip-roaring drone garage from the might SVI. Check out their latest album Strange Behavior.
11. Ufesas – Part Of The Night
Uruguay band takes us on a journey deep into psych country. So glad this tune is on the mix. It’s intense.
12. Coolrunnings – Rusk
Where the hell did this come from? Low chant-like vocals interrupted by explosions of psych guitar.
13. Nova Drones – Leech
Now we’re back to what sounds like an actual tune!
15. All In The Golden Afternoon – All In The Golden Afternoon
Trippy tune to soundtrack a bad dream sequence.
16. Galaxie 500 – Tugboat
Stone cold classic from Today.
17. Mystic Chords Of Memory – We Could Send Letters
Aztec Camera track given the full blown hippy cinema treatment by a now-defunct band composed of members of The Aislers Set, The Tyde and Beachwood Sparks.
