Over a decade ago in Washington, D.C., Boris Skalsky & Paul Wood were making waves in the shoegaze quartet Phaser, having landed on NPR’s Top 50 Music Releases Of 2003. They’ve since teamed up with Jason Molina, former drummer of Longwave, one of my favorite bands to have emerged from the post-punk revival of the 2000s, to form the 3-piece Dead Heart Bloom. Their recently released EP So It Goes is a perfect blend of garage rock and new wave; exactly what you’d expect from three seasoned shoegazers.

Newdust Remixtape No. 3
A tale from an alternate universe: The Beatles never broke up.
“I came into the possession of a cassette tape containing a Beatles album that was never released.
“I dont expect you to believe what happened to me, I sure wouldn’t, but thats why I grabbed the tape as proof that my experience was real.”
I love everything about this. Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, & Starr reunite with a mash-up of their solo efforts to form Everyday Chemistry, The Beatles’ final masterpiece.
My two favorites are “Talking To Myself” feat. Harrison’s “Stuck Inside A Cloud“, Lennon’s “Stranger’s Room“, & McCartney’s “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey“; and “Soldier Boy” feat. McCartney’s “Listen To What The Man Said” & Lennon’s “Isolation“.
