An early morning mix; mellow, haunting and occasionally twee.

For those curious about the Carpenters track that rounds off this mix, read more here.

Here’s some videos.

Jenny O. Automechanic.

Cate le BonHollow Trees House Hounds. Give her a big hand, she’s Welsh!

CocoRosieEnd of Time. Totally bonkers. Many reviewer give the Casady sisters a D- but they have their supporters.  I like them fine.

The LuyasFifty / Fifty

WaxahatcheeSwan Dive. Katie Crutchfield is all grown up now, so I suppose there won’t be so much screaming, which is a shame.

WidowspeakBallad of the Golden Hour

LowSo Blue

Ariel Pink – Only in Dreams. Crazy but good. He has a few demons.

Angel Olsen. She can sing and yoddle at the same time. No mean feat. I am impressed by how quiet the crowd is in this clip of her singing.

Portland Cello Project attempt a track from Beck’s sheet music release.

Acid House KingsUnder Water. The Supremes meet Kraftwerk

Youth LagoonRasberry Cane. Bedroom keyboard mystro made good. Saw him at SXSW2012, it looks like he made it back this year.

Nuggets 257 – Chug Chug 6

Nuggets 257 - chug chug 6 

I have been waiting for Surf City to play locally for several months. Last time I looked they were somewhere in Europe on tour. However, a message on Facebook from the band let me know that they were coming to town, and I headed down to the Lucha Lounge to see them. The Lucha is a great venue, it’s small and has atmosphere. Good sets from Lizard of Oz and Wilberforces then it was time for Surf City. They seemed a bit rusty but soon got going. A bit more shoegazey and motorik than their last record outing. The crowd kept surging forward, threatening to knock the mikes over, but always a hand appeared to steady the mike as the crowd eased back. Very jolly and I enjoyed the new material. The new album is out about now. See the mix for one track, and the widget below for another…

The Lucha Lounge features pictures of masked Mexican wrestlers. I’m not into wrestling but the pictures are intriguing. El Santo features in the picture above. There is a documentary about him below. It’s MC’ed by a tragically hip Jonathon Ross.
