Moon Duo - "Fallout"

Not really sure why it took me two months to realize there was a video for Moon Duo's "Fallout". While i am still not convinced about there new album mazes you can't deny how rad and psychedelic this tune is.

Akron/Family - Light Emerges

Vast Aire feat Double A. B. - "Sour Diesel"

The songs of 2011 ( well so far ) that have touched me in places you wanna be touched

I know its a little early for a mid year review but its close enough for me, all i want to no where has 2011 gone so far.
It was pretty tough going whittling this list down to 15 tracks some amazing songs from the likes of EMA, The Weeknd and Bill Callahan etc got left off.
The other surprise was the lack of straight out rock and hip hop, well i guess there is still time in 2011. Happy listening.

Procedure Club - "Rather"

The Horrors - Still Life

More than a little excited this morning with a new "The Horrors" LP on its way july 25.
With a mix of the verve, Bowie and a large dash of The Horrors how can you go wrong.

World unite Lucifer Youth Foundation are crazy good almost like an angsty Arcade Fire but get on that train quick before the inevitable backlash from overhype occurs. Highly recommended.

Sebadoh - Rebound

Rebound is from the last great  Sebadoh release in Bakesale. Its about to get the deluxe and re-mastered treatment from sub pop june 14.

The Adults - Nothing To Lose

The Adults are pretty much a who's who of the New Zealand music scene . Assembled by Shihad frontman Jon Toogood as an outlet for his solo recordings it became a different beast when it was decided to write brand new songs.
The baseline and drumbeat are highly addictive in Nothing To Lose worth the price of admission alone. The Adults have become one of the most unexpected delights i have heard in awhile.

Villains Of The Moon is easily the best song from Cold Cave's new album cherish the light years in all is synth pop gothness.
