Album Review

Reviewed 2011-07-07
Collection assembled by KZSU faves Pink Priest this features music/artists way off the beaten path, what some might certainly call “bladerunnercore” and also what qualifies as dreamy pyche heavy quality Indie Rock/Pop. The gamut from garage to goth. Something really really good for everyone. (After listening all the way through I wonder if all the artists recorded using the same one room studio with the same mics and tape delays, live to 2-track even).

1) (4:30) Neon Pulse: slow fade in to dreamy ambient drone, balm
2) (1:42) Fen Paul: low fi simple toy piano and treated voice/sample, cool
3) (3:15) Cough Cool: plod in a Swans way, deep dreaminess in a Hammock/Sujo way
4) (2:58) Ela Orleans: upbeat dreamy twang guit with a pop sense, indie rock vocs kinda, lovely
5) (3:11) Blessure Grave: 90’s brit dream rock feel, upbeat
6) (2:14) Deep Sht: thrashy psyche noise pop
7) (1:59) Cloud Nothings: Pop, indie upbeat peppy pop
8) (2:57) Ale Mania: straightforward echoed vocaled garage rock, upbeat
9) (2:50) Dunes: airy dreamy girl vocal heavy, feedback distant guitar
10) (3:00) Ancient Crux: tribal 80’s goth surf cure feel, instrumental
11) (3:00) Twin Lion: really cool electrodrum 80’s feel and echoey guitar
12) (3:22) Beaters: upbeat urgent
13) (3:13) Lee Noble: simple low fi indie pop
14) (2:33) A Grave With No Name: simple offkey echoey girl pop, slow with jangle bells
15) (2:47) Terror Bird: simple upbeat synth/piano pop, fem vocs
16) (3:09) Norse Horse: cumbia sampled super trippy exotica
17) (4:28) Dirty Beaches: dark simple electro and vocal delivery a la Suicide
18) (3:02) Heavy Hawaii: dreamy waltzy
19) (3:12) Badtimeexpress: triplet casio drums, low fi vocs, melodic minimal pop
20) (3:47) Dead Gaze: jangly epic psyche pop
21) (3:36) Jeans Wilder: very low fi, simple vocs and guitar
22) (1:51) Fluker Love: noisey slow casio low fi
23) (2:44) Nude Boy: rocking girl garage, echoey righteous (Meow Alert!)
24) (3:22) Pink Priest: wow, I forgot how good these guys are, super cool creepy ambient illbient
25) (6:32) Taped Hiss: tape manipulated ambient synth, jarring but interesting ENDS WITH 3:37 REMAINING then with 3:17 remaining a “hidden track”(?) appears, low fi indie pop sung in foreign tongue (I think
