Catching up on some new releases and classic material.
1. Black Math -Triumph Burns
Shaking things up a bit by starting with some dreamy space pop out of Chicago. Love the title.
2. Fuck Buttons – Surf Solar (7″ edit)
Fantastically intense and creative tune recently reviewed here by Pitchfork.
3. The Clean -Tensile
A drifting, dreamy number off the seminal New Zealand band’s latest album.
4. Grapefruit – Grapefruit
5. For Those Who Know – Grow Old Together and Die
Bombastic, swirling shoegaze out of Austin.
6. Crocodiles – I Wanna Kill
Nice bit of 80s revival, complete with bright, catchy chorus. Nice review by Exclaim.
7. The Raveonettes – In and Out of Control (demo)
Dark/light pop number off their new album of same name. Hoping to catch them in Toronto Oct. 22 with The Black Angels.
8. I, Nosferatu – In the City
If you like any of the dark, drony and reverbed bands mentioned above, this one’s a gem.
9. Love of Diagrams – Stones Throw
This band is doing interesting stuff – noisy kind of indie rock. Off last month’s Nowhere Forever – another cut can be found on this audiocast.
10. The Mystery Machine – Broken
How did I not know about this Vancouver 90s band until recently? Power pop crossed with a bit of Sonic Youth. Their Glazed album is getting heavy rotation here.
11. Flood – Jealousy Comes To The Rescue
Ringing, exhilerating track by 90s English band highlighted here.
12. Lavender Faction – In My Mind
Textbook shoegaze. I challenge you not to air drum when listening to this.
13. Monoland – Yuriko
German band takes us into dreamier territory via this gorgeous track. Highly recommended.
14. Loco-Holidays – Silly Smile
Nice Japanese shoegaze.
15. Circulatory System – Round Again
Yes, yes, yes! There’s nothing better than when a favourite band delivers the goods on a killer new track. Fans of Olivia Tremor Control will not be disappointed by this noisy psych pop track off their new album Signal Morning.
16. The Light Sleepers – Chaperones
This building rocker couldn’t sound more midwestern – but it’s out of Brighton, UK! Props to BOAWS.
17. Kurt Vile – Hunchback
Must admit I wasn’t familiar with his earlier band The War on Drugs, but I’m really liking what I’m hearing on his new Matador album Childish Prodigy, released this week.
