Free End of the Road Festival Mix. Today Barry-Sean and I head off, pop up tents in tow, to the marvellous End of the Road festival in lovely Dorset.

Mad Mackerel's Best Of June Mix Here is our regular Best of the month mix – more than twenty tracks of all shapes and sizes to get your ears into, plus a few new ones that we think you’ll love!

So we’re off and running with…

Download The Virgin Passages – Horizon mp3 (from Horizon)

Euphoric, unhurried, hazy and hypnotic.

Download St. Vincent – Kerosene (live) mp3 (Big Black cover)

Visceral and stunning live cover of a stonewall classic.

Download The Coathangers – Trailer Park Boneyard mp3 (from Larceny & Old Lace)

Full on garage rock with a blues punk burn.

Download Bobby – Ginger (Water Birth) mp3 (from Bobby)

Rhythms abound, layered vocals loop and swirl and repeat and a sensation of blissed out haze settles on you like a gossamer blanket .

Download I Break Horses – Hearts mp3 (from Hearts)

Gorgeous vocals, the trembling reverb and the all round sonic density of the song make it one to really immerse yourself in.

Download Buffalo Killers – Circle Day mp3 (from 3)

A propulsive rhythm, proper guitars and a killer riff soaked in a tight-fitting seventies sheen.

Download Vetiver – Wonder Why mp3 (from The Errant Charm)

Folkies deliver vintage keyboards mix with ambient washes and jangly guitars.

Download Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Senator mp3 (from Mirror Traffic)

A refrain about Senators and blow jobs and all delivered in a classic, slighty messy, indie rock style.

Download She’s Hit – Miriam Hollow mp3 (from Pleasure)

Like The Stooges jamming with Jeff The Brotherhood, fronted by the bastard offspring of Ian Curtis and Shane MacGowan.

Download The Warped 45s – Grampa Carl mp3 (from Matador Sunset)

A wonderful tale of prohibition, the story unfolding on the back of a foot stomping riff and a climactic cacophony of electric guitars.

Download Jim Dead – Bone Blue Moon mp3 (from Ten Fires)

One listen to the slow-burn of Bone Blue Moon and you’ll find yourself be transported to that porch where the sun is setting and the notes hang thick and heavy in the air like woodsmoke.

Download Bleached – Think Of You mp3 (from Carter 7″)

Freewheeling California punk jam that is equal parts Misfits and Rolling Stones.

Download Bones Howell – Hair Of The Dog mp3 (from Hair Of The Dog 7″)

Bauhaus classic gets the Bones Howell treatment.

Download Collections Of Colonies Of Bees – Lawn mp3 (from Giving)

Intricate and emotive indie folk.

Download Daniel Knox – Ghostsong mp3 (from Evryman For Himself)

Evocative and provocative tale of disillusionment, obsession, and criminal intent.

Download Sundress– Derelict mp3

Psych-pop of the very best kind.

Download Elle King – Good To Be A Man mp3

Country blues that blends two worlds of city grit and mid-western charm.

Download Sleeping Bag – Slime mp3 (from Sleeping Bag)

Simple melodies, deadpan delivery, jaunts of balls-out rocking, and minimalist tact.

Download Efren – Moonshine mp3 (from Rise On Up And Melt)

Melancholy and affecting folk.

Download The Vivian Girls – Take It As It Comes mp3 (from Share The Joy)

Ramshackle indie mixed with a sparkling pop sensibility that owes as much to the beachfronts and rock’n’roll diners of the 50s as it does the jangle pop heyday of the 80s.

Download Peg Simone – Piece Of Pie mp3 (from Piece Of Pie)

Lingering guitar riffs and echoed silver-tongued vocals. It is eerie, ghostly, and sounds like it comes drifting like a mist off the night time bayou.

Download Lanterns On The Lake – You’re Almost There mp3 (from Gracious Tide, Take Me Home)

Mix of dream pop and ethereal, experimental folk.

And to finish off we have the new single from experimental goth chanteuse Zola Jesus, a blast of rockabilly rumble at the hands of the Mad Caps, six plus minutes of excellent sloppy post-punk hooks from Male Bonding, and something from Peter Wolf Crier’s forthcoming album.

Download The Mad Caps – Baby Man mp3 (from The Mad Caps)
