1. The Waxwings – Clouded Over
Mod rock and roll starts us off. Sad this Detroit band is defunct.
2. Maikotobranco – Curtain
This scorcher sounds like a Japanese Kevin Shields fronting the Beatles.
3. The Sunshine Factory – Dive Dive
This band’s string of shoegaze singles continues to impress.
4. Sounds Like Sunset – Frequency
More guitar! Ozzie rocker that begs to be played loud.
5. Panda Riot – Serious Radical Girls
Cheers to Dean, and then Brian, for sending me this new shoegaze gem. We need more fresh stuff like this.
7. The House Of Love – Erosion
And now for some classics. Note: keep listening past the Brian Adams opening chords.
8. The Catherine Wheel – Crank
Chrome mid-tempo anthem.
9. Incan Abraham – Wailing Wall
New one that the S2 faves describe as psychedelic pop, due out October 12.
10. The Phoenix Foundation – Buffalo
Been sitting on this excellent track from the New Zealanders for too long.
11. Collider – Silos
Synthesizers guide this groovy shoegaze tune from July’s fine Vaede album.
12. Zoot Woman – Grey Day
Any ZW fans out there?
13. Blouse – Videotapes
Chillwave meets melodramatic dream pop on the streets of Portland. Fabulous.
14. Katheryn Calder – Who Are You?
15. Yawn – Sing Low
Slow but thumping chillwave off their Open Season album.
Headphone music for a cold, windy day.
17. Eau Claire – Freefall
Supergroup of sorts drops this gloomy but beautiful gem from 2005.
What do all these bands have in common?
They all released records with Alan McGee’s Creation Records. Check out the Upside Down trailer. DVD will be available in May.
