I'm still not 100% sure why Fred Thomas isn't a global megastar - very few people write better pop songs*. Maybe this time, eh Fred?
New album "Aftering" is out now, linkage in the usual spot, he's on the Dreaded Facebook at ilovefredthomas.
* truth - try "Brickwall" from his last album "Changer"...

"Heavy Blue" - Rainstorm Brother
Part bigverb piano, part electrofolk noise, all lovely.
"If I'm Gone Tomorrow (It's Because of Aliens)" - MUNYA
Psychedelia-laced pre break-up space optimism.
"San' Yago" - Cave
Tasty Chicago Jam.
"Stay Awake" - Johnny Hostile
Scratchy warble electro swells, done gud.
"Taishi-Koto, Pt. 1" - L'Eclair
A not unpleasant amount of soundtrack-y organ.
"Steady State" - Rimarimba
Pulsing lo-fi guitar vs electronicalism and drones. From Felixstowe. Obviously.
"Deterritory" - Young Jesus
It's nice to know someone in LA still makes brainrock.
