Soundtrack2 Ep. 58: Music For Headphones

Dum Dum Girls, The Laurels, Wire, Music For Headphones, Stars & more

1.   Dum Dum Girls – He Gets Me High

New track drops timeless power pop with a garage twist. Reminds me of classic Go-Go’s.

2.   Dirty Beaches – Sweet 17

Suicide meets Link Wray.

3.   The Spyrals – Love Me Too

Organ-drenched dark psych.

4.   The Laurels – Turn On Your Mind

Australians drop some heavy, going-up-the-Mekong drone rock.

5.   The Sadies – Another Day Again

Hillbilly freakout from Canadian alt-country masters. This one’s off 2010’s Darker Circles. Check out their video using footage from The Hilarious House of Frightenstein.

6.   Wire – Two Minutes

I love it when pioneers return to show the kids how it’s done. 120 seconds of post punk assault with spoken word off their newest, Red Barked Tree.

7.   Shark? – Tiny Violin

Gun Club homage with more buzzsaw guitars: “My love is big, but my heart is small.”

8.   Pale Saints – Time Thief

Quiet/loud shoegaze from The Comforts Of Madness.

9.   The Dandy Warhols – Ride

Mighty wah-wah from Courtney & co’s first album. Is this a tribute to the band Ride?

10.  The Avalanche – Throw Away The Rest

Melodic shoegaze from Norway.

11.  Orange Blossom Flyover – Someone Like You

Moody, murky shoegaze from Massachusetts. Vocalist sounds like Badly Drawn Boy – moonlighting?

12.  Mind Cinema – Lovesick High

Californians drop some dreamy mellow chillwave that builds brilliantly.

13.  Music For Headphones – 123Go!!!

Motorik monster off the excellent Life.In.Mono EP.

14.  Stars – Ageless Beauty

Watching Amy Millan performing during BSS’ This Movie Is Broken prompted me to dig out this near-perfect shoegaze pop song. Find it on Set Yourself On Fire.

15.  Speed Skating – Polar Bear

Near-epic hyper-melodic pop with a hint of mystery.

16.  Death And Vanilla – Run Rabbit Run

Nice one by band with a clear love of Broadcast.

17.  Low – Step

This intense, lovely tune’s from the brilliant The Great Destroyer. Their new album is coming out soon, and they’ve got a track available on their site.

18.  Lanterna – Collossus

Heavy, slow strummed guitar for three-plus minutes. That’s all you get, so just let it in.

19.  Sleep Party People – A Dark God Heart

Lullabye for the weary time traveller. Pick this one up here.

Soundtrack2 Ep. 56: We Are Sound

The Lionheart Brothers, Wire, British Sea Power, Weird Dreams, Incan Abraham & more


Literally bursting with lots of great new music. What are you into these days?

1.   Weird Dreams – Hurt So Bad

Power pop with buzzsaw guitars, taken from the wonderful Young & Research compilation, available here.

2.   Eux Autres – Cover Rights

Like their mellow San Francisco pop sound.

3.   Babies – Run Me Over

Garage-y, reverb-heavy rock and roll.

4.   Ty Segall – Caesar

Sounds like a track left off David Bowie‘s The Man Who Sold The World album, sang backwards of course.

5.   Lab Coast – Really Realize

Now we’re getting to a few bands with names spit out by the chillwave name generator. Nice 60’s garage pop sound from Alberta, California.

6.   Ghost Wave – Hippy

New Zealanders ring the guitars through two minutes of propulsive rock and roll.

7.   Tripwires – Cinnamon

Shoegaze band that sounds like it’s fronted by James Mercer of The Shins.

8.   British Sea Power – We Are Sound

UK powerhouse comes correct on epic banger from latest album Valhalla Dancehall.

9.   The Lionheart Brothers – The Desert

Interesting psychedelic space pop from Oslo.

10.  Wire – Adapt

Legendary group pulls out another one. This dream pop tune sounds quite different than some of their older stuff.

11.  Easter Island – Proud

Heart-on-sleeve, beautiful pop out of Athens, GA.

12.  Oeil – White

Full-on Japanese shoegaze.

13.  Brahman – I Guess I Should Be Thanking You

Epic rock anthem. Available via name-your-price on Bandcamp.

14.  The Rosen Association – Emergency Broadcast

Electronic indie that takes us spaceward.

15.  Beggars In A New Land – Home Alone

Shimmering digital pop that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Macaulay Culkin.

16.  Delphic – This Momentary

These guys are unique. Electronic, swirling track that builds in intensity then fizzles out.

17.  Incan Abraham – Third Man

Mysterious midtempo moodiness conjures up an Animal Collective vibe.

18.  Under Alien Skies – Done Sink

Murky groove off the Paste EP.
