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.

1.   Headlights – This One (Live on Daytrotter)

This sublime, intimate track feels like it was recorded at 3 a.m in a whisper-quiet studio. Info here.

2.   Lu – Mood Elevator

Former Lorelei member brings the psychadelic robotics with cascading noise at the end. Info here.

3.   Swell – Say Goodbye

Underrated 90s band brings delivers a woozy slice of indie rock. Info here.

Really into this band and this melodic, moody cut. Info here.

Serena Maneesh

5. Ides of Space – Random Noise Generator

Another 90s band worth a rotation. “Take your path and I’ll take mine…” Info here.

6.   Serena Maneesh – Chorale Lick

Will this band be coming out with another album or what? Overdue. Info here.

7.   Eric’s Trip – Sun Coming Up

If you like this muffled brilliance, also see Elevator. Info here.

8.   Pavement – Perfume-V

Malkmus has said they “made a career out of ripping off The Fall.” Love The Fall, but Pavement adds some serious haze on this one. Info here.

9.   Dead Meadow – Such Hawks Such Hounds

This track’s time has come after being bumped the last four podcasts. Psych baby! Info here.

10.  Ruby Suns – Morning Sun

Lovely weirdness from the band who also covered The Beatles’ “Birthday.” Look out for the 80s electro-pop curve. Info here.

11.  Freeheat – The Two of Us

We played them in our first audiocast, but purchasing the Jesus and Mary Chain box inspired me to bring them back. Check out this killer track from Jim’s other project. info here.

12.  Superdrag – Destination Ursa Major

Power pop goes interstellar. Info here.

13.  (Sounds of Kaleidoscope) – Oh My Mind

I’m a sucker for anything that hints at the underwater psych pop of Lilys or Syd Barrett. Info here.

14.  Echobelly – Great Things

Missed them the first time around. Nice fuzzed-out pop tune. Info here.

15.  Cornelius – Free Fall

Great driving track from Japanese artist from Matador. Info here.

16.  Tame Impala – H.F.G.W. (Canyon’s Drunken Rage)

This remix is unreal. “Now my only company’s a half-filled glass of wine.” Slowly starting to love Tame Impala. Info here.
