This playlist moves from blasting hardcore with a (somewhat obscured due to shouting) message to restless post-punk, fuzzy shoegaze, dance pop, soul, and singer-songwriter ruminations. Enjoy, hopefully!
1. Converge – “Under Duress”
Yep, that about sums up the world right now…
2. Autobahn – “The Moral Crossing”
Post-rock gets epic treatment on this long, dark, and rhythmically driven song.
3. Bad Channels – “Exo”
Post-punk and darkwave get a bit dreamy in the hands of this diverse Canadian act.
4. Miniatures – “What You Want”
New shoegaze tune from this Australian band on the Saint Marie Records roster.
5. SPC ECO – “Waking Up Again”
One of the Curve-sounding tracks from new album Calm by Dean Garcia (ex-Curve) and his daughter Rose Berlin.
6. Polartropica – “Crystal Ramen”
Genre-blending space-pop upstart mixes up a dance, rock, and pop sonic tonic.
7. Joseph of Mercury – “Do You Remember”
Dance pop with a dash of rock and velvety vocals never sounded so alluring…
8. Curtis Harding – “On and On”
Deeply ’60s-style soul is revivified by this stirring, vintage/mod singer.
9. Winter Witches – “Train”
Self-described queer couple Sweeney and Em travel down a reflective symphonic-folk road on this single.
10. Tamino – “Indigo Night”
A spellbinding story-teller from the Jeff Buckley-like Belgian-Egyptian wunderkind.
