1.   Junip – Without You

Beautiful, pastoral psychedelia from José González’s other band that ascends heavenward as the synth comes in. Wow, this Daytrotter session really deepened their sound.

2.   Panorama – Sol Brillar

What could be a lost gem from Dark Side of the Moon, but straight out of Medellín, Columbia. Available via above link.

3.   Ambulance Ltd. – Swim

A classic midtempo tune from their brilliant self-titled album from quite a few moons ago. Great chord progression.

4.   Stumbleine – Lunar

Love the broken soulfulness of this track. Just fantastic, genre-defying music that may take a few listens for you to fall in love. And they’ve been nice enough to make it available on their Tumblr.

5.   Slowness – Black & White

San Frans drop some trippy power pop, with nice guitar effects towards the end.

6.   April Fool’s Day – Being Phil

Great guitar-driven, crunchy rock and roll. Hard to tell where they’re from…Spain?

7.   Jetman Jet Team – Cosmic Age

Clandestine stratospheric shoegazing by promising Seattle-ites.

8.   The Raveonettes – Evil Seeds

Don’t be fooled by the (not so good) post-rock intro. This dark guitar pop tune from new record Raven In The Grave gets darker and deeper. Nice to see them mess with their formula.

9.   Mock – Poppy

Now we’re getting crazy. Like A Place To Bury Strangers, Ringo Deathstarr or even No Age? Then this one from ’94 is for you.

10.  Sphere – Low-altitude Flight

Wall of sound over loud beats and great female crooning vocals. Chorus kicks it up a notch.

11.  Transistor Photograph – Like A Dolphin

Flash of sound and light, with a steady groove and sweet breakdown.

12.  Last Remaining Pinacle – Students Of The V.U.

Drone, sitar and – is that a zither? Theremin maybe? Nuff said…

13.  Moon Duo – Fallout

Now add some rock and roll to the drone and you’re off. Yes!

14.  Swans – The Great Annihalator

More sitar! This corker’s off the LP of the same name, but this recently re-activated band is touring again.

15.  Ty Segall – Standing At The Station

No words can describe the joyful cacophony here. And don’t ask me what this song has to do with a station.

16.  Royal Bangs – Triccs

Ripping new post punk/rock and roll with a wonderful, distorted bottom end that gives it a great dirty groove.

17.  The D’Ubervilles – Magic Arrow

Fellow Torontonians do such a stellar cover of Timber Timbre‘s track that I actually prefer it. The mood they create here really breathes life into the song.

18.  Achievement House – Summer Spirit

Summer’s not here yet, so we’ll describe this as the soundtrack to a glorious Spring day. It brings to mind free spirits in Broken Social Scene.
