We’re 100. Yay.
Now let’s get on with another mix of killer tunes.
1. A Place To Bury Strangers – You Are The One
We start off our 100th episode with the band that has kicked off our podcasts the most. When you listen to their latest Joy Division meets JAMC jam, you’ll understand why.
3. Abschaum – Moonlight
Hypnotic boogie music for trenchcoat wearers.
4. Averkiou – Fuzzy Photograph
Crunching power pop off February’s The New Imperative. Love the guitar (?) noise solo.
5. Taffy – Haah
Stirring Japanese shoegaze. Guess they couldn’t think of a good title, so a simple “Haah” fit the bill.
6. The Wedding Present – You’re Dead
I wasn’t really feeling this initially, but it grew on me. Gedge gives us the gears at the chorus, with a bit of Mark E. Smith phrasing.
7. Airiel – Flashlight Tag
Amazing to hear new music from this band.
8. Grass Widow – Walking Out On Love
More classic power pop goodness, but GW’s female vocals provide a shoegaze edge.
10. Whirr – Toss
This Pipe Dreams twee pop tune just mesmerizes.
12. Lightfoils – Sympathy Lies
Bright, soaring shoegaze pop from
13. John Maus – No Title (Molly)
Get down with your bad self, Mr. Maus. If this is a joke, please don’t end it.
14. Dead Mellotron – Stranger
Sucks when you sit on a killer dream pop tune so long that ANOTHER one comes out from the same band before you get to it.
15. Vinyl Williams – Chroma Heart
Hazy anthem starts with “The end is near” and then declares “you’re in my heart.” Check out his new Ultimate World EP.
17. Soul Glimpse – Fade & Breath
One of the few ambient tracks I’ve wanted to drop. Listen closely and listen loud.
18. Irene On Edge – Time Fly
Hypnotic full kilter noise with oddly beautiful garbled voices.
19. Mr. Gnome – The Way
Unbelievable chillwave (or is it witch house?) that is the perfect soundtrack to a waltz in another dimension.
Masquer, Deerhoof, Shade, New Estate, Killing Joke & more
1. The Wedding Present – Crawl
Wistful indie pop from 1990 gets us going.
2. Killing Joke – Eighties
Blast of primal yet glammy post punk featuring the UK’s greatest screamer. Weird Science fans may recognize this from the crazy house party scene, before the motorcycle gang rides through the house.
3. Tones On Tail – Go
4. Medicine – She Knows Everything
Wonderful screaming noise with ethereal crooning vocals over top.
5. Masquer – Happiness
Swedes provide some dark, romantic electro pop, available for free on their site.
6. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Y Control
This popped up on my player the other day. Overlooked indie noir beauty from Fever To Tell.
7. Scarlet Chives – The Horror
8. Skylight – As You Leave (2008)
Very cool stuff recently unearthed by the Boston band and uploaded to their bandcamp page. Nice murky shoegaze.
9. Shade – Get There With You
Latonka track with great vocals and drone. Reminds me of another band, but I can’t say who…
10. Daydream – Shiny Road
This Korean band love their Ride. That’s ok, we do too. Nice melody and female vocal.
11. Air Formation – Fallen Leaves
Cool, slightly dreary sonic assault.
12. New Estate – Dream Planner
Fantastic track that out-Pavements Pavement. But with a touch of shoegaze thrown in.
13. Surely I Come Quickly – The Breeze
Lo-fi from Saskatchewan? This has been kicking around for a while, but had I known they were from Saskatoon I’d have dropped it sooner. Cool French horn, or whatever that instrument is.
14. Pure X – Twisted Mirror
Reverb-drenched goover for the late late late night wind-down.
15. Sungrazer – Wild Goose
Gimme stoner rock! And make it Dutch, please. Hoping to play some more of this kind of stuff, provided it fits. Thoughts?
Noisy, bonkers remix of great tune from Flux Outside.
17. The Harvey Girls – Faster Peach
Hard to describe this one, but trust me it’ s great. Till next time.
