1.   The Wedding Present – Crawl

Wistful indie pop from 1990 gets us going.

2.   Killing Joke – Eighties

Blast of primal yet glammy post punk featuring the UK’s greatest screamer. Weird Science fans may recognize this from the crazy house party scene, before the motorcycle gang rides through the house.

3.   Tones On Tail – Go

Former Bauhaus dudes dropped this freaky goth funk gem, then decided to form Love and Rockets.

4.   Medicine – She Knows Everything

Wonderful screaming noise with ethereal crooning vocals over top.

5.   Masquer – Happiness

Swedes provide some dark, romantic electro pop, available for free on their site.

6.   Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Y Control

This popped up on my player the other day. Overlooked indie noir beauty from Fever To Tell.

7.   Scarlet Chives – The Horror

Track of the week! Imagine Kate Bush crossed with My Bloody Valentine, and you’ve got Scarlet Chives. Name’s a bit silly, mind you.

8.   Skylight – As You Leave (2008)

Very cool stuff recently unearthed by the Boston band and uploaded to their bandcamp page. Nice murky shoegaze.

9.   Shade – Get There With You

Latonka track with great vocals and drone. Reminds me of another band, but I can’t say who…

10.  Daydream – Shiny Road

This Korean band love their Ride. That’s ok, we do too. Nice melody and female vocal.

11.  Air Formation – Fallen Leaves

Cool, slightly dreary sonic assault.

12.  New Estate – Dream Planner

Fantastic track that out-Pavements Pavement. But with a touch of shoegaze thrown in.

13.  Surely I Come Quickly – The Breeze

Lo-fi from Saskatchewan? This has been kicking around for a while, but had I known they were from Saskatoon I’d have dropped it sooner. Cool French horn, or whatever that instrument is.

14.  Pure X – Twisted Mirror

Reverb-drenched goover for the late late late night wind-down.

15.  Sungrazer – Wild Goose

Gimme stoner rock! And make it Dutch, please. Hoping to play some more of this kind of stuff, provided it fits. Thoughts?

16.  Royal Bangs – TV Tree (Deerhoof remix)

Noisy, bonkers remix of great tune from Flux Outside.

17.  The Harvey Girls – Faster Peach

Hard to describe this one, but trust me it’ s great. Till next time.
