    by Spartan Jet-Plex
    Meant Meant
    Take a trip into the bedroom Lo-Fi of Spartan Jet-Plex, sweet dreams and lush pop make up this nostalgic trip into lazy Sunday cry sessions.

    smile, Violet smile, Violet
    Happy ragtag dream guitar pop with lonely vacant echo vocals from an abandoned school locker room.

    waves waves
  5. Winged and Wounded
    by Swim Lessons
    Someday Someday
    Swim Lessons has the swag of back-to-basics acoustic Devendra Banhart Pre-Cripple Crow. It will make you nostalgic for that 2005 indie music era. However it will also make you deeply thankful we have this beautiful rich acoustic album by Swim Lessons to fill that shaky-vocal freak folk void.
  6. Swissex Mixtape
    by Fight Bite
    Catiline/Petrified Catiline/Petrified
  7. Lullaby Land
    by Nice Legs
    End End
    South Korean band Nice Legs is a breath of fresh eccentric dream pop. Their song “End” is the antithesis to Kanye West’s “I am a God”. Their eccentric lyrics “I’ll be your God if you come to my Church.” and “I’ll be your God and cure your disease” make for one of the most compelling listens this year.
  8. Witch Mtn
    by Emily Reo
    Above Ground And A Golden Cloud Above Ground And A Golden Cloud
    Industrial Cling Clang Noise Pop sprinkled with a little bit of fairy dust and ghostly female vocals.
  9. Hiding
    by Tearjerker
    Door Door
    Feel good Shoegaze Lo-fi with melancholic influences that channel the spirit of Atlas Sound. Before you know it, you'll be jerking back a couple of tears from the fractured memories this music manages to salvage.
  10. Alter Eagle
    by Sauna Heat
    I've Been Dreaming of You I've Been Dreaming of You
    The 50s static in this love song will chill you to the bone. The vocals will send shivers down your spine that remind you of some past that only your grandparents would be able to recall.

  11. It Won't Take Long
    by Dead Folk
    I've Been Trying I've Been Trying
    Encompassing the struggling spirit of 90s Grunge Rock, Dead Folk takes it to a rocking level that compels and stirs your spirit in a way that few 90s revival acts can. Which makes it engaging from beginning to end.
  12. Tugboat
    by Finnmark!
    Tugboat Tugboat
    While the original will never be topped. This comes pretty damn close. A stripped down Magnetic Fields version of the song seems most fitting.
  13. Petrichoral EP
    by Petrichoral
    Everything's Coming Up Milhouse Everything's Coming Up Milhouse
    This is the kind of Beach Boys-esque music I'd imagine hearing at my discontinued annual family reunions that were held in the woodsy area of Sonora, CA at my Aunty's house. Everything was so nostalgic. We played baseball in the fields, rode go-karts, went swimming in the huge onsite pool. Had huge family dinners. If I ever found footage of this I'd definitely use this entire album as a soundtrack.
  14. Talisman
    by YUS
    Nowadays Nowadays
    In 1999, I remember listening to Moby's track "Porcelain", getting chills and thinking to myself that I wish all of his music sounded this good. 15 Years later a talented musician named YUS must have been thinking the same thing. Except he did something about it. His track "Nowadays" is the quintessential Electronica dream pop track that Moby never perfected. While Moby peaked with that track, Yus has debuted with a track far superior than anything in Moby's body of work.
  15. Dream Holiday
    by Magic Island
    This Minimalistic Soul Pop will grab hold of your interstellar skeleton frame and tape you to the bulletin board of happy feelings.
  16. Finx
    by Splendidid
    I Ate A Pinecone Today I Ate A Pinecone Today
    If Aladdin was a hipster he'd take you on a magical musical carpet ride into the teenage summer of a 90s sitcom at the beach. This would be the soundtrack as the vintage wet carpet hovered above the salt water like a surfboard.
  17. Something Like That
    by Wolf Collage
    Back in the 90s when the word "Alternative" had a specific meaning a cause born. Alternative was the 90s version of counter culture against the glitter and glam of over polished boy bands with slimy producers puppeteering their creative process. "Something Like That" seems to encapsulate the Alternative movement of the 1990s with it's poignant lyrics and power pop chorus. Wolf Collage is a one man band but this song carries the weight of several influential alternative rock bands of that decade.
  18. Head of The Witch 7"
    by Thigh Master
    Head Of The Witch Head Of The Witch
    These Aussie punks create some decedent Memphis Garage rock sprinkled with delicious Kiwi Jangle.
  19. Feral Youth

    Widows Widows
  20. Waste The Day
    by The Oscillation
    Waste The Day Waste The Day
  21. Honey, Milk and Blood
    by Shunkan
    Dust From Your Eyes Dust From Your Eyes
    Adrenaline fueled AD/HD indie rock with an extremely eclectic sound palette combined with Karen O quirky yelps and vocals.
  22. Czabeth
    by Lately Kind of Yeah
    Part 6 Part 6
    Imagine Drone Folk. In an Insane Asylum. Playing over and over inside your head. No one can hear this beautiful music except you. But you desperately want to share it with everyone else. Maybe if you dissect one of the nurses ear drums she'll finally understand and hear what you hear.
  23. That Do Now See EP
    by Oh, Rose
  24. Silence
    by Black Polygons
    Diaphane Diaphane
  25. Same Mistakes (single)
    by The Echo Friendly
    Same Mistakes Same Mistakes
    Probably the best track on the "Girls" entire soundtrack. Generation X growing pain lyrics coupled with extremely catchy acoustic riffs reminiscent of The xx.
  26. Emmi // Tom and I
    by Mini Dresses
    Emmi Emmi
    A little bit of La Sera, a little bit of Samara Lubelski mixed into a delicious surf guitar concoction.
  27. Woman
    by White Birds
    Deep Acoustic Ritualistic Folk echoing through a tunnel made out of pieces Roy Orbison from an ethereal heaven. Soar on the wings of the White Birds and let them hypnotize you with heartbreak.
  28. August EP
    by Neighbors
    August August
    Neighbors bring to the table wonderful quick-footed Indie Pop that incorporates acapella vocals with electro synth and electronica beats. Together it creates an eclectic melting pot of melancholy noise.
  29. Summer
    by new wave syria
    X(I)O X(I)O
    New Wave Syria boasts a big sound. Taking the hard hitting elements of Crystal Castles and monotone female vocals of Ladytron to create some pretty intense industrial noise pop that will haunt in your dreams.
  30. Warrior
    by Anilah
    Warrior Warrior
    Warrior is an 11 minute long ethereal orchestration that could easily be the soundtrack to "Game of Thrones". With esoteric and modern elements infused with Enigma-esque vocals and progressive metal, you'll get lost in the rhythmic pulse while imagining the Lannisters raise hell.
  31. Forward:
    by Wolf Collage
    Glow Glow
    Forward is the crescendo of every teenager's life when he must transition from boy to man. Each song examines this inward state of self-reflection. The anger, the awkwardness, the grief, the loss. But ultimately the acceptance that "he knows exactly where he should be for the very first time". This affirmation of life explodes on the track Glow. Which monumentally shares the best attributes of The National and Youth Lagoon. It's an unforgettable listen and an album you will not soon forget.
    Mating Falls Mating Falls
    If you're feeling 6 feet under, the BIRTHDAY'S Schizophrenic Tribal Pop music on speed will rip you out of the ground and make you dance like a zombie out of THRILLER. Beware, the happiness infused in these songs are so concentrated you'll start to feel like a ROIDED up BANE dosing on some extra potent VENOM.
  33. It's Real
    by Laurence
    Hello Hello
    Melancholic Ambient Folk Pop pulling you into the ether of nostalgic existence. It's chorus of jingling bells, Youth Lagoon lo-fi vocals manage to tug on your heart strings and pull them out of your body and hang them in the stars.
  34. ... and then i lost my voice
    by Arthur Sharpe
    silky silky
    Cinematic Folk displaced in a Beatnik Noir Fantasy tale. Arthur Sharpe takes us into the eclectic dark depths of penny dreadfuls to Deja vu induced British Invasion hooks.
  35. wakes
    by Wakes
    in the dark in the dark
    Deep male vocals dancing around 80s nostalgia, muffled drum beats and surf guitar making it into a wonderful perfect storm of dream pop bliss.
  36. Future Proof
    by Mesita
    No Future No Future
    Very few times does my mouth drop when I first listen to a track. This reimagined Discothèque infuses unmistakable soul and electro pop beats that send your spirit rising to the 7th Floor.
  37. Sliding Stones of Death Valley EP
    by Sweet Benfica
    It came from outta space It came from outta space
    Incredibly catchy Grunge Slacker Pop with Daniel-Johnston-esque vocals. This is methodical laziness at it's best. Best to listen to after you've called in sick for work and stuck it to the man. You'll feel so punk rock.
  38. Winnebago
    by Aunt Sis
    Isak at the Woods Isak at the Woods
    Folky 1960s acoustics paired with sample electronic loops. Smooth male vocals. Now this is what I call Folktronica.
  39. Everything's Casual
    by Foozle
    Everything's Casual Everything's Casual
    Through some Witchcraft spell from the 90s, Foozle is able to emulate the spirit and intensity of Weezer from the Early Days. Make no question about it, this is a "ROCK OUT" album with delicious power pop hooks.
  40. Old Times
    by The Red Lines
    Quick Fix Quick Fix
    I imagine this being the soundtrack to my 8MM Childhood that only exist in my distorted memory recall of early life events.
  41. Summer Means Fun EP
    by The Kickstand Band
    August August
    A little bit of soul. A little bit of blues. A little bit of Surf guitar. This bands got it all. Including the female vocals to boot.
  42. Life Model - Come Round
    by Life Model
    Life Model - Come Round Life Model - Come Round
    Blissful and Dreamy Arena Rock infused with Sigur Rose vocals in english.
  43. Glow
    by Wolf Collage
    In the vein of The National meets Youth Lagoon, this track monumentally shares the best attributes of both bands. All while making it a sound of his own and making this my favorite track of 2013.
  44. Home
    by Dylan Campbell
    Odd Odd
    I'm starting to wonder if "Dylan Campbell" is Sufjan Stevens under a pseudonym. Either way it doesn't matter because this album is gold.
  45. Dark Furs EP
    by Dark Furs
    Won't See Me Won't See Me
    Dark Furs continues where Sleater-Kinney left off. The female vocals are harrowing and maintain the intensity that I dare say rival Carrie Brownstein.
