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.

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.

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

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.
Headlights, Serena Maneesh, Eric’s Trip, Superdrag, Tame Impala & more.
Not to get sappy, but spring is springing and we’re hopeful. Let the sun come up.

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