Another good one from East Coast Countdown - Christina Martin's Somewhere With You.

And I have also been listening to the July Indie Rock Playlist found here:

http://theindierockplaylist.com/articles/2015/07/05/indierock-playlist-july-2015

and again have been decidedly unimpressed. Most of the songs are of the "wall of guitar, fuzzy drum beat and yelling lyrics" kind, virtually indistinguishable of one from the next. Very very few have stood out, and I think I've listened to all 160 songs. Here is one that stood out for me - Broken Love by Rain Over St. Ambrose. This Nova Scotia based band really stood out. Can't wait to listen to more of their songs on Bandcamp: http://rainoverstambrose.bandcamp.com/

Not sure what to make of HOLYCHILD. Some interesting rhythms anyway. I really liked Barbie Nation but it's not available on YouTube. Here's another good one, though - Running Behind, from their June 2015 release The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come.

Nice finger-tapping music from Nottee. This is Do You Love Me, via EMix! Radio.

Amazing story. Amazing group. I had a friend who was a passionate fan in the 70s. Dark Side Of The  Moon was an intensely personal, formative album for me personally, in ways that I can't really get into in a public forum. Maybe someday over a cold beer, we can talk about it...
 
Syd Barrett died nine years ago today. Look back at our 2007 cover story on the madness and majesty of Pink Floyd.

Listening to East Coast Countdown, an online radio show from Canada that features eastern Canadian acts. I came across it when searching for the lovely Rain Over St. Ambrose song Broken Love that I played yesterday. So I'm listening to their top ten and I really like this song from Hey Rosetta!. It's called Gold Teeth

To be honest, not much recently has grabbed me, despite the plethora of choices. I put together the June +AllMusic Editors' Choice playlist on Google Play Music and have been decidedly underwhelmed so far, and I'm about halfway through. I'm up to the M's before I've found something to share. Here's Mortification of the Flesh from Matchess, a Chicago based soloist named Whitney Johnson. It's from her June release, Somnaphoria and I like the dreamy electronic quality of the songs.

Speaking of "glad to see a new album" on the +AllMusic list, I am glad to see a new one from Richard Thompson. It's called Still and marks 40 years playing music. The 3 disc retrospective Watching The Dark would almost certainly be one of my Desert Island Discs, but one of  my favorite Thompson songs isn't even on it. Rather 1952 Vincent Black Lightning can be found on his amazing 1991 release, Rumor and Sigh. It showcases his breathtaking storytelling skills in a perfectly exhilarating and crazy ride about this motorcycle and its owner.

Putting together my +AllMusic Editors' Choice playlist for June and was glad to see a new Heartless Bastards album on it. Into The Open was the song that got me hooked on Erika Wennerstrom's amazing voice.

Created a playlist from the CMJ Best of 2015 so far and this is the first one on the list that I haven't heard, but I'm liking the girl thrash rock. This is Trash Talk by Thee Tsunamis, from their Saturday Night Sweetheart release.

A music odyssey thru alt rock, new wave and electronica
Introduction
Please check out Vehement Flame Radio where I play new wave, alternative, electronica and a whole slew of other sounds.

Tossing out music sounds as I stumble across them. I don't really follow back from this page. I just use it to curate interesting songs I come across. 

Please + mention this page if you post good alternative, electonica, folk or just plain weird songs. I don't do pop, R&B, rap, or jazz.

Feel free to also circle my personal G+ account, +Jonathan A. - I usually follow back from there.
