Sennen, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ghost Box Orchestra, Inca Gold, The Cult Of Dom Keller & more
This week’s mix is inspired by the title and artwork of the latest Sennen album.
1. Black Tamborine – I Want You Around
Legendary band regroup for Ramones tribute.
2. Roomrunner – Disintegrate
A must for lovers of layers of distorted, slightly out of tune guitars.
3. Starfire Connective Sound – A (Long) Road From Earth To Sky
Brazil band drop sitar drone over guitars and breakbeats.
4. Brian Jonestown Massacre – The Clouds Are Lies
I loved “Illuminomi” when I first heard it but figured it would be a one-off on their latest Aufheben. The whole album’s got that groovy acoustic dark hippie vibe! Dig the atmostpherics on this track.
8. Neil Young – Change Your Mind
It’s dark and late at night in your dorm room. The DJ of the local classic rock station comes on, saying he wants to play a track from the new Neil Young record that just came out that day. You’re not a big Neil fan but you keep it on as background music. After about three minutes you stop what you’re doing and listen. Holy crap…this is Neil Young? You stand transfixed for another nine minutes…
9. Chad VanGaalen – Red Blood
Some chilling, passionate folk rock from Infiniheart that I thought would be perfect about here.
10. Woods – Wind Was The Wine
Rimshots, cool guitar and great voclal melodies from Brooklyn.
13. Moby – Posion Tree (David Lynch remix)
Brooding beats and piano chords punctuated by some disjointed female cries. Even though it’s repetitive it seems way less than its seven-minute running time.
14. Inca Gold – Atom
“Ooo ooo ooo oooh!” Here’s to chillwave with hooks!
15. Sennen – St. Jude
Track of the week comes from their latest album Lost Harmony. It’s a big departure from their earlier psych shoegaze stuff.
Psychic Ills, Deerhoof, The Chambermaids, Wooden Shjips, Sleeping Bags & more
1. Husky Rescue – Rainbow Flows
Chilling out at a hookah bar on Venus.
2. Psychic Ills – Mind Daze
Hazy psych roots rock off Hazed Dream, due out later this month.
3. Duelelectrum – Ultrasensor
São Paulo band gets murky on this one from Exploding Galaxy.
4. Neutral Milk Hotel – You’ve Passed
Recent touring and reissues made me dust off this powerful drone rock classic.
5. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club – Too Real
The trip down memory lane continues with this great midtempo dream pop tune from their first album.
7. Wooden Shjips – Black Smoke Rise
Leadoff track to new album West.
9. Starfire Connective Sound – Acid Morning Ride
Bombastic Brazilian rock and roll.
11. Deerhoof – Scream Team
I went to the Battles show last week. Deerhoof singer Kazu Makino was featured on a video screen singing their very cool “Swinging & Shag.” Now I’m paying it forward by dropping this gem from The Runners Four.
12. Azma – Sweetness and Light
This melody is 100% guaranteed to get inside your head.
13. The Chambermaids – China Blue
Twin city garage power pop. Lovely.
14. Weekend – Hazel
Indie power pop with a splash of shoegaze.
15. Sea Dweller – Settings
Love Is Coming track of near-perfect C86 shoegaze.
16. The Ludvico Treatment – The Last Thing You Should Do
Blistering cover of David Bowie’s 1997 Earthling track.
17. Sleeping Bags – Canteloupe
Released last month, this may be placed in the chillwave category. But to me it’s just a fantastic, huge tune.
The Sky Drops, Skylar Grey, Paquin, Superhumanoids, Bloody Knives & more
1. Zombie Girlfriend – Driving Song
Perfectly titled opener from the Baja, Hungary band.
2. Odonis Odonis – Mr. Smith
My fellow Torontonians drop some ecstatic post punk a roll.
3. Bloody Knives – Whatever You Want
Airy Austin dreamy shoegaze.
4. Caged Animals – Girls On Medication
Love this wiry track and the buzzsaw guitars.
5. Swervedriver – Blowin’ Cool
In honour of them hitting town last weekend, here’s a gem from Mezcal Head.
6. The Sky Drops – Cut That Corner
Love listening to whatever they put out. Think The Posies with more edge. Am I the first to make this comparison?
7. Drowner – Written
Melancholic, beautiful Cocteau Twins inspired classic shoegaze. Fantastic vocals and choruses. “When I see your face….”
8. Paquin – Tether
New Zealand band drops this slice of shoaring shoegaze.
9. Skylar Grey – Dance Without You
Huge, distorted tune over thumping beats. This one’s a sneak peek of her upcoming album.
10. The Fauns – 1991
Just gorgeous shoegaze classic off their seminal self-titled album. A few weeks back they put out this fun video to update their fans.
11. The Stone Roses – I Wanna Be Adored
Found that the lead-off track to their a truly great album slots in nicely here.
12. Flying Saucer Attack – Wish
Running down more classics, this time a 1994 shimmering psychedelic beauty.
13. The Dandy Warhols – Insincere
Always loved the floating in space vibe from this one, taken from Welcome To The Monkey House.
14. Silver Swans – Mother Of Pearl
Light electronic pop tune with a hint of 60’s girl group.
15. Superhumanoids – Mikelah
16. Starfire Connective Sound – Electric Whore
Brazil band drops some mysterious, dark techno.
