1.   The Besnard Lakes – And This Is What We Call Progress
Last week’s show at Toronto’s Lee’s Palace was mindblowing. Here’s the song they opened with.

2.   Malajube – Synesthésie
Also on the bill at the BL show. Great spacey pop tune, available for download off their site.

3.   The Jezabels – Endless Summer
Ringing shoegaze guitar with classic pop songcraft. Reminds me of LoveLikeFire.

4.   Spiritualized – Electricity
Playing Spectrum last week made me think of this – the first track Iever heard by Jason Pierce.

5.   Duffy & The Doubters – Sorry Mom My Brain Is Dumb
Garage pop from Duffy of Ladyhawk.

6.   Bliss.City.East – I Like You
This Exposition track is a chilled shoegaze anthem in waiting.

7.   Lavalsa – She Floats
Brazilian grungy greatness.

8.   Trans Am – Carboforce
Words cannot describe how much these guys rock. Killer tension and release.

9.   The Soft Moon – We Are We
Nihilism you can nod your head to.

10.  Garbage – Supervixen
Risking my street cred a bit here, but I’ve been hearing lots of new stuff that sounds like this.

11.  Austra – Spellwork (Young Galaxy Remix)
YG channeling their inner New Order.

12.  Phantogram – Don’t Move
Nice bit of dreamy electronic pop: “I’m not your paranoia…”

13.  Warm Ghost – Once One
Abstract woozy chillwave from Brooklyn.

14.  The War On Drugs – Come To The City
There are so many good tunes on Slave Ambient that I had to play a second track. Huge journeyman anthem.

15.  Pressed And – Raid
From their page: “A complex interplay of primal effects and synth landscapes, rife with tension in a cascading sequence of loops and glowing drones.”
