Soundtrack2 Audiocast 34: Epicenter

Pacific UV, The Ruby Suns, Snapper, Field Mice, The Frames & more.

Dipping into the archives a bit more this week. There’s lots of new stuff in the hopper for the next one!

1.   Kinski – Rhode Island Freakout

Sonic Youth-indebted rocker kicks us off. This one’s off 2003’s Airs Above Your Station.

2. Snapper – Eyes That Shine

Great noisy garage psych from the great 1992 album Shotgun Blossom. Snapper features Peter Gutteridge, previously of The Clean and The Chills.

3. Pacific UV – Know

Been meaning to drop this for a while. Great noisy rock and roll gives way to dreaminess.

4. Oblisk – Epicenter

Propulsive track out of Detroit. This off last year’s Weather Patterns.

5. Nikoo – Gimme Hell

New Netherlands noisepop, taken from their free EP.

6. Disappears – Hearing Things

Catchy off-kilter track by increasingly interesting Chicago band: “CCR via Minor Threat

7.   Aerial Love Feed – Rockethouse

Bombastic Britrock out of New York.

8. Ornaith O’Dowd – Car Tapes

Irish Brooklyn-based artist describes this as ” wistful guitar pop number that recalls the romance of making mix tapes for summer road trip.” Sounds good to me.

9. Moscow Olympics – Second Trace

Straight outta the Philippines is MO with a nice melodic pop number off Cut The World.

10. The Field Mice – Sensitive

Sarah Records legends bring the sunny never-want-this-song-to-end C86 pop. The bridge between The Smiths and Adorable?

11. Dreamend – Elipsis 2

This instrumental would be the perfect trackto play during intermission at a My Bloody Valentine concert.

12. The Frames – Sideways Down

A fave track of mine by the Irish band.

13. Hooray! – Honeymoon

Like me some folky dream pop.

14. Invisible Elephant – Time

This instrumental builds in intensity until they hit you with an explosive Bowie/Mott The Hoople chorus. Available on Bandcamp.

15. The Ruby Suns – Closet Astrologer

Lovely. Fans of Animal Collective will really like this band.

16. Team Ghost – Colors In Time

Wonderful shoegaze electronica out of Paris.

17.  Nice Nice – See Waves

A great track that’s hard to pin down. Clash describes it as noise rock, but I’m not so sure.
