1. Craft Spells – From The Morning Heat
Kicking things off with some jangly romantic pop.
2. Seapony – Blue Star
Though we recently played another track by this band, we couldn’t resist the sleepy gauze pop on this track. RCRDLBL made it available here.
3. Kids On A Crime Spree – Sweet Tooth
Surf/power pop from Oakland band. Another from RCRDLBL.
4. The History Of Apple Pie – Tug
UK band brings some dark power pop. RCRDLBL is on fire recently.
5. The Vaccines – If You Wanna
Daytrotter provides a sweet reverbed rock and roll track that sends singer Justin Young into hoarse territory.
6. Prismo Perfect – TV Dream
Noisy post punk from France.
7. Capsula – Under The Woods
Dark, urgent shoegaze with an air of menace. Check out their fantastic In The Land Of Silver Souls record.
8. Pursesnatchers – Baseball On The Radio
Krautrock-influenced rock and roll.
9. 13 Engines – Bred In The Bone
This track by Canadian 90s heroes starts as a creeper and then explodes.
10. White Lies – Is Love
11. Marnie Stern – Transformer
Difficult to describe this one – full-on sensory overload in two minutes? Would love to see this played live.
12. Main – Feed The Collapse
Classic by former members of Loop. Minimal and spooky.
13. Elbow – Fallen Angel
Beautiful, ethereal rocker off Cast Of Thousands.
14. SPC ECO – Feels Like Flying
Speaking of ethereal…brand new stunner from SPC ECO’s Big Fat World EP. Get it here.
15. Galaxie 500 – Another Day
Legends channel Velvet Underground on this gem from On Fire.
16. Soft Crest – Young Blood
Just fantastic new track from this LA band. Inspirational.
17. Cortney Tidwell – Oslo
The Vandelles, The Twilight Sad, P.S. Eliot, Moonbell, Low & more.
1. Working For A Nuclear Free City – Eighty Eight
Felt the need to start off with a stunner, but nothing new turned my crank. Dug up this rock and roll from Businessmen & Ghosts.
2. Skywave – Angela’s An Angel
Noisy assault from a fantastic, overlooked band.
3. Electro Group – Manimal
Distorted, bass-heavy rock and roll in the vein of Autolux.
4. Headless Horseman – Wavlngth
From last October, this indie curio has a certain swing that moves me. Check it out on RCRD LBL.
5. P.S. Eliot – Watch On Mute
Short, punky rock and roll off Sadie, their new EP which they’ve made available for download here. I’ve liked this band for some time, but haven’t found many tracks that I love yet.
6. Seapony – Dreaming
Sarah Records revival! Damn catchy.
7. Dum Dum Girls – There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
Smiths covers are tricky, especially with a signature tune like this one. But they pull it off on this one from He Gets Me High.
8. Matthew CH Tong – Present And Correct
9. Young Adults – Campfires
From November’s Black Hole, this is a great, dense instrumental.
10. Tjutjuna – Rise # Set
Over nine minutes of pedal-to-the-medal space rock. Watch these guys.
11. Woodsman – Serfer
Great, abstract indie rock.
Their new Summer Fling EP inspired the photo for this week’s post. Kinda surf-y, but with a lot more going on.
13. Moonbell – Figurine
Off the EP of the same name, this band puts out wonderful, sluggish psych tunes.
14. The Upsidedown – Dutchess Of York
15. The Twilight Sad – And She Would Darken The Memory
Desolate, gripping classic off their first album Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters. Great use of noise.
16. Cowboy Junkies – Lay It Down
Not a band we’d normally feature here, but this tracks has a great mellow, psych edge that sets the next song up perfectly.
17. Low – Nothing But Heart
Crunchy, Neil Young guitar starts us off, then this gem just floats upwards. Nice to see Low, with their new album C’mon, reminding us how music = passion.
