They’re Finnish, but the sound is straight up groovy J-pop meets shoegaze.

Hooks aplenty on this indie rock tune. Just discovered them recently.

Tune from defunct Canadian band that somehow reminds me of a free ride down a seaside highway.

Boston-based Matador 90s heroes drop some psych sitar from The Magic City.

Great dark power pop out of LA.

17. Seavault – Cornfields
Moody electronic drone pop tune out of the UK.
18. Loney Dear – Take My Hand
Near instrumental that would be perfect for the closing scene and credits of virtually any film. Surprised to learn these guys are Swedish and not Canadian.

Trying something a bit different with this track from one half of The Fiery Furnaces. Reserve judgement until the track fully kicks in.
