In The Pharmacy #40 – Late August 2013

The 16 best tracks from the last two weeks. Psych pop, indie rock, electronic pop, alt-folk etc.

Cloud Control ‘Scar’

Catchy, dreamy psych pop with baroque keyboard riff, from Blue Mountains outfit’s second album Dream Cave.
[Cloud Control]

Janelle Monáe featuring Miguel ‘Prime Time’
Smooth as you like, classy r n’b form Monáe and Miguel with a great Prince-esq guitar solo from (I’m assuming) Kellino Parker.
[Janelle Monáe]

Yamantaka // Sonic Titan ‘One’
Stoner / psych / heavy / art prog from Canada
[Yamantaka // Sonic Titan ]

Title Fight ‘Be a Toy’
Kingston Pennsylvania melodic hardcore band
[Title Fight]

Neko Case ‘Night Still Comes’
Second track to be lifted from Neko Case’s forthcoming follow up to 2009’s Middle Cyclone, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight The More I Love You, much of it written and recorded while getting through a bout of depression. A much better showcase for her considerable talents as a songwriter and vocalist than previous track ‘Man’.
[Neko Case]

Volcano Choir ‘Comrade’
Proggy-folk from Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and fellow Wisconsin musicians. This is the first taste of their forthcoming second album, Repave (due out on Jagjaguwar next month)
[Volcano Choir]

Little Big League ‘My Very Own You’
Indie rock from Philly band featuring ex-members of Titus Andronicus and Strand of Oaks.
[Little Big League]

together PANGEA ‘Snakedog’
LA garage rockers who are not afraid of a screaming guitar solo.
[together PANGEA]

Au Revoir Simone ‘Crazy’

Electronic indiepop from veteran all-female Brooklyn band.

Kelley Stoltz ‘Kim Chee Taco Man’
Jangly psych-pop from San Franciscan garage / lo-fi veteran.

Welsh noise-pop that’ll be familiar to fans of pre-Isnt Anything My Bloody Valentine. Reliably signed to Slumberland.
[Joanna Gruesome]

Juana Molina ‘Eras’

Rubbery folktronica from Domino-signed Argentine singer songwriter’s forthcoming sixth album, Wed 21. This one sounds like a looser, more experiemental Lykke Li.
[Juana Molina]

Lo-fi psych pop from Vermont.
[Happy Jawbone Family Band]

San Fermin ‘Daedalus (What We Have)’
Chamber pop with Sufjan Stevens-level ambition.
