1.   Peter Cat Recording Co. – Love Demons

Don’t be fooled by the slow dirge beginning. This is a full-on psychedelic freak out. Singer reminds me of someone… Pete Doherty?

2.   Vue – She’s Sweet

Stooges-indebted garage rock with a killer groove. Just found out this band is now Bellavista, which I must check out.

3.   The Boo Radleys – Bluebird

Martin Carr and co. drop some melodic shoegaze rock and roll, taken from the Every Heaven EP.

4.   Velocity Girl – I Don’t Care If You Go

Great midtempo shoegaze power pop tune from an underrated band. Playing this makes me want to dig up a Posies tune.

5.   The Apples In Stereo – Running In Circles

Super early garage pop from their rarities comp Science Faire.

6.   Last Tide – Traitor In My Mind

DC band drops a chiming, driving footstomper with singalong choruses.

7.   SIANspheric – Static

Who’s reforming on June 30 to play a Toronto show with Ringo Deathstarr? These guys! To mark the occasion, here’s one where they sound an awful lot like Swervedriver. Not in a bad way.

8.   Grooms – Tiger Trees

Boy does this song get inside your head. Love the melancholy mood it sets with waves of noisy chords.

9.   Miracles – Quarantine

“We want a quarantine! Separate evolution!” barks the singer over heavy distorted guitar and pounding drums.

10.  The Consolation Project – Look Wild

Sounding at first like a b-side by The Cure, this prolific Rochester musician is captivatating on this tune. Cheers WTSH for the tip!

11.  Cloud Control – Meditation Song #2 (Why, Oh Why)

A song taken from the new Fleet Foxes album? Nope, they don’t get as trippy as this. Available on RCRDLBL.

12.  Dreamed – Izumi

Fans of Broadcast would dig the distorted-organ goodness. Hard to find many details on the artist also known as Jessica Minshew, other than here and here.

13.  The Kingsbury Manx – Blue Eurasians

Chapel Hill 90s heroes update the Pink Floyd sound. The gem on their self-titled album.

14.  Silver Pines – Payasito

Second time I’m playing these Texans. Really like their dusty psychedelic sound.

15.  Clams Casino – I’m God (instrumental)

Now we jump to a cross between chillwave, ambient and hip hop. Love.

16.  I Break Horses – Hearts

Heard this song after this week’s mix was mostly done, and then had to re-edit! (Podcasters don’t like to do this) Lovely bit of Kraftwerk meets Bachelorette here. Speaking of which…

17.  Bachelorette – Blanket

I’ve been excited for her new self-titled album since it was first announced. It doesn’t dissapoint. Most are describing it as folk meets electronic pop, but I love how she layers her voice, with washes of noise and drone over the beats.

18.  aeiou – Vivimos In L.A.

Want a track that features Blonde Redhead‘s Simone Pace, The Breeders‘ Kelley Deal, Juan Son and whistling? We’ve got you sorted. More on this project here.
