1.   Zombie Girlfriend – Driving Song

Perfectly titled opener from the Baja, Hungary band.

2.   Odonis Odonis – Mr. Smith

My fellow Torontonians drop some ecstatic post punk a roll.

3.   Bloody Knives – Whatever You Want

Airy Austin dreamy shoegaze.

4.   Caged Animals – Girls On Medication

Love this wiry track and the buzzsaw guitars.

5.   Swervedriver – Blowin’ Cool

In honour of them hitting town last weekend, here’s a gem from Mezcal Head.

6.   The Sky Drops – Cut That Corner

Love listening to whatever they put out. Think The Posies with more edge. Am I the first to make this comparison?

7.   Drowner – Written

Melancholic, beautiful Cocteau Twins inspired classic shoegaze. Fantastic vocals and choruses. “When I see your face….”

8.   Paquin – Tether

New Zealand band drops this slice of shoaring shoegaze.

9.   Skylar Grey – Dance Without You

Huge, distorted tune over thumping beats. This one’s a sneak peek of her upcoming album.

10.  The Fauns – 1991

Just gorgeous shoegaze classic off their seminal self-titled album. A few weeks back they put out this fun video to update their fans.

11.  The Stone Roses – I Wanna Be Adored

Found that the lead-off track to their a truly great album slots in nicely here.

12.  Flying Saucer Attack – Wish

Running down more classics, this time a 1994 shimmering psychedelic beauty.

13.  The Dandy Warhols – Insincere

Always loved the floating in space vibe from this one, taken from Welcome To The Monkey House.

14.  Silver Swans – Mother Of Pearl

Light electronic pop tune with a hint of 60’s girl group.

15.  Superhumanoids – Mikelah

Fantastic, inspirational track that brings to mind the fabulousness of Stars or Young Galaxy.

16.  Starfire Connective Sound – Electric Whore

Brazil band drops some mysterious, dark techno.
