Soundtrack2 Ep. 102: Lost Harmony

Sennen, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ghost Box Orchestra, Inca Gold, The Cult Of Dom Keller & more

This week’s mix is inspired by the title and artwork of the latest Sennen album.

1.   Black Tamborine – I Want You Around

Legendary band regroup for Ramones tribute.

2.   Roomrunner – Disintegrate
A must for lovers of layers of distorted, slightly out of tune guitars.

3.   Starfire Connective Sound – A (Long) Road From Earth To Sky
Brazil band drop sitar drone over guitars and breakbeats.

4.   Brian Jonestown Massacre – The Clouds Are Lies
I loved “Illuminomi” when I first heard it but figured it would be a one-off on their latest Aufheben. The whole album’s got that groovy acoustic dark hippie vibe! Dig the atmostpherics on this track.

5.   Ghost Box Orchestra – Vanished (SCATV Demo)
Props to I Heart Noise for dropping this sinister-sounding psych on Boston Not LA, Volume 2.

6.   The Cult Of Dom Keller – Heavy And Dead
Mysterious UK band manages to somehow cross Suicide with The Doors.

7.  Hollowphonic – Sertraline
You’re probably wondering the same thing I was – it’s an anti-depressant. This Mississauga post-rock crew bring to mind our fellow countrymen SIANspheric.

8.   Neil Young – Change Your Mind
It’s dark and late at night in your dorm room. The DJ of the local classic rock station comes on, saying he wants to play a track from the new Neil Young record that just came out that day. You’re not a big Neil fan but you keep it on as background music. After about three minutes you stop what you’re doing and listen. Holy crap…this is Neil Young? You stand transfixed for another nine minutes…

9.   Chad VanGaalen – Red Blood
Some chilling, passionate folk rock from Infiniheart that I thought would be perfect about here.

10.  Woods – Wind Was The Wine
Rimshots, cool guitar and great voclal melodies from Brooklyn.

11.  Midlake – Young Bride
One of those hard-to-define psych pop tunes that reminds me of great Of Montreal and Gorki’s Zygotic Mynci. Great swirling violins.

12.  Birthmark – Shake Hands
Really dug this tune then it dawned on me how similar it sounds to the criminally overlooked 90s band The Glands.

13.  Moby – Posion Tree (David Lynch remix)
Brooding beats and piano chords punctuated by some disjointed female cries. Even though it’s repetitive it seems way less than its seven-minute running time.

14.  Inca Gold – Atom
“Ooo ooo ooo oooh!” Here’s to chillwave with hooks!

15.  Sennen – St. Jude
Track of the week comes from their latest album Lost Harmony. It’s a big departure from their earlier psych shoegaze stuff.

1.   Spirit Spine – Ocean Of Sand

Driving, space psych starts us off. Part of the ambitious Glossalia concept album.

2.   Ides Of Space – Way Out At Sea

Sydney heroes rock out on a track from 2004’s Sleeping Fractures.

3.   Dear Eloise – Oh What A Day

Japanese band sets guitars on noise. Can’t make out what they’re singing, but it sounds great.

4.   Ceremony – Not Tonight

Another great dose of 80s-inspired wailing guitar terror. This is off the Not Tonight EP, due out tomorrow.

5.   Crash City Saints – Cough Syrup

Find this fevered noisy shoegaze power pop on the Returner EP, complete with the great vocal melody.

6.   Cocteau Twins – In Our Angelhood

The ethereal ones go all post punk.

7.   Ghost/Light – You Already Know

Though this track came out last year, I recently came across it and was hooked once I heard the vocals.

8.   Yuck – Getaway

Online sensations behind “Georgia” channel their inner bar band. Not sure why, but it reminds me of Superchunk.

9.   The Telewire – Quiet Satellite

Dreamy theme for a train journey. Is that Hooky on bass?

10.  Pavement – Kennel District

Great midtempo rocker with the band’s unmistakable sound.

11.  The Koolaid Electric Company – SOS Son Of Sam

Stoner drone overload. How is it that I never played these guys before? Love ’em.

12.  [aftersun] – Goodbye

Been sitting on this psych tension and release epic for a while, but its time has come.

13.  Imperial Teen – Alone In The Grass

90s indie rockers do 7+ minutes of krautrock and pedal insanity on 1999’s What Is Not To Love.

14.  Moby – Be The One

Don’t judge this one until you’ve actually listened to its great claustrophic space pop. Has he been listening to Georgio Moroder? Available for free download on his site.

15.  Coma Cinema – Her Sinking Sun

Slightly dreary dream pop tune off Blue Suicide, available for download on their site.
