Our Own Dream

Download : Caveman – “Thankful”

CavemanNew York’s Caveman start of this weeks mix with “Thankful” an ideal mix of Brooklyn texture and that chilled out vibe all of us are looking for as the year wears down towards its close. These guys remind me of what  Bishop Allen (one of my all-time favorites)  could potentially sound like of they relax a bit on the next album.

Download: Romantic States – “Say It’s Now”

Romantic StatesRomantic States are a duo out of Baltimore that get all sorts of chill-wave-emo on my favorite song of theirs “Say It’s Now.”

Download: The Black Tambourines – “Sleep”

The Black TambourinesSleep”  feels as much like a flash back to England’s musical glory days as a simple piece of stripped down rock with a hint of soul. The Black Tambourines feel like my vinyl collection has come to life and began talking amongst itself.

You can find The Black Tambourines smoking against the wall here.

Download: Wax Idols – “All Too Human”

Wax IdolsIn the midst of the kick I’ve been on for Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich Wax Idols couldn’t have come along at a better time for me. I’m just really getting down on this kind of garage-rock psychedelia. “All Too Human” is Rock at it’s purest form, freebase this shit.

Download: Panda Su – “I Begin”

Panda SuI’ve referenced Lydia in the past as being one of the major bands that really sparked the focus of my love for music in a new direction. Panda Su‘s “I Begin” reminds me so much of them that I actually got excited the first time I heard it thinking it was a new track from the duo. I hope that my comparison in no way takes away for how great this song is. In Reality Panda Su may likely have never even heard of Lydia and has ended up with this sound through her own passion and focus. The core of what made me initially get into “I Begin” may lie with a band that has lain dormant in my collection for some time but it was merely a spark to make me appreciate this new band, and if that’s what it took for me to get into them I don’t see anything wrong with it.

Download: Amtrac – “Came Along”

AmtracCame Along” makes me think of what Houses would sound like if their music was less ambient with a bit more focus on a catchy lyricism and a nice DJ feel to the overall sound.

High-five Caleb Cornett and get to know Amtrac better here.

Download: Tempo No Tempo – “Kilometer”

For every new mediocre band that comes out a phenomenal band with so much potential like Tempo No Tempo call it quits. Nice getting to know you guys.

Bid farewell/possibly convince them to hang around for a while longer here.

Download: Library Voices – “If Raymond Carver Were Born In the 90’s”

Library VoicesCertain songs have lyrics that make a song worth overlooking the mainstream vibe they give off. Library Voices‘ “If Raymond Carver Were Born In The 90’s” is one of those songs. I already had my hand on the mouse hovering over the skip button when each line began telling me to hold off for one more second and then without warning I suddenly felt enveloped by the words and proved once more how certain sounds are perfectly worth overlooking once the ambition overshadows the misconceptions I wrongfully placed on the track.

Download: Forest Fires – “I Make Windows”

Forest FireEach time I listen to Langhorne Slim I’m reminded of this song. “I Make Windows” feels like it belongs on the Almost Famous soundtrack or at least as the track one on whatever mix you put in for a long ride home after some epic night of small-town memories and friends.

Download: Kelly Polar – [a song that I did like]

I had a nice little write up here but apparently Kelly Polar and his “Artist-run independent label” care more about money than people hearing their music so if you get a chance to check him out pass it up for artist that care more about their art than about making money off of it.

.Download:  Leopold And His Fiction – “Golden Friends”

Leopold And His FrictionMy next glorious vinyl purchase will be the “Golden Friend/Throne“7”. I know I’m about a year and half behind on grabbing it but certain songs need to age a bit and shake the hype that surrounded them before I can fully get into it.

Download: Netherfriends -“Full Of It (Nilsson “

Netherfriends Does NilssonDAIIIMMMM! This song is incredible. Here’s another song off of NetherfriendsNillson cover album and one more reason why you should have downloaded the damn thing yourself by now.

.Download: Blue Sky Black Death – “Sleeping Children Are Still Flying”

Sleeping Children Are Still Flying” reminds me of Pink Floyd if they had made some strictly instrumental song with a slightly electronic rhythm… only better. This song says more without words than 95% of bands do with them.

Download: Keep Shelly In Athens – “Our Own Dream”

Keep Shelly In Athens TourI’m ending this week with Heycoolkid! mainstay Keep Shelly In Athens who are finally starting to give us some new music. I dig everything about this band from there sound, to their lack of image, even to their unpretentious unassuming name. Keep Shelly In Athens are the one band (outside of maybe 1,2,3) that every website/blog/podcast should be pumping out like shitty Little Wayne songs at a junior-high party.
