Soundtrack2 Audiocast41: Processions

Autolux, The Blanket Ghost, Collider, The Boo Radleys, No Joy & more

1. Bottle Of Evil – Conversation

Dreamy Scottish indie. Feeling a bit of Doves here but not sure why.

2. Slowdive – 40 Days

Working in some more classics. We haven’t played this band since the very first episode – criminal! Timeless and lovely.

3. Anne – Summer Babies

Vocals remind me of Duncan Sheik (!) but this dream pop off their Demo is first rate.

4. The Blanket Ghost – l o o k a t t h e s t a r s

Cool off-kilter noise pop. With a name using the required words “Ghost”, “Crystal” or “Girls”, these guys are sure to make it big.

5. Autolux – Supertoys

Yes. Transit Transit is out August 3 and it looks they haven’t lost their touch over the years.

6. The Boo Radleys – Rodney King

Another neglected ST2 fave. Love this track’s distorted groove from their masterpiece Giant Steps.

7. Bloody Knives – Hands Around My Neck

Glam-gaze from those weird kids in Austin.

8. Collider – !Ex Ex!

Righteous melodic shoegaze rock and roll from the fantastic Strobos EP, available on their Bandcamp.

9. Weed Hounds – Skating Away From The Cops

C86-inspired anthem by New Yorkan band. More please.

10. Caucus – Sing (Half Dreaming)

Came across this nice pop track off the great Half Dreaming Asian shoegaze comp. Pretty good English singing for a Japanese band!

11. The Morning After Girls – Death Processions

Last year’s Alone yielded some good tunes, but loud dark arena rock and roll fans should turn this one up.

12.  Cherryblades – Everyday Is Extreme

Cross Hüsker Dü, R.E.M. and Wire and you have this 90s band.

13. Amazing Baby – Head Dress

Baroque melodic Britpop  from Brooklyn with some nice glam guitar. Better than it sounds.

14. The High Dials – Book Of The Dead

Light psych that’s hooked me since first seeing them as mainly-mod The Datsons. Off this year’s good Moon Country album.

15. No Joy – No Joy

Hard to pin this one down. Loud, distorted Archers of Loaf-indebted rock.

16. Turzi – Baltimore

Party like it’s 1993 with this Bobby Gillespie-guested big beat track. Also better than it sounds.

17. How To Destroy Angels – Parasite

You-know-who brings the broken dark noise. Been kicking this around for a while now…pick up the free EP on his site.

18. Indian Jewelry – Lost My Sight

Swirl in to the dark digital void with this pummeling trance psychedelia. And for the last time – better than it sounds.
