Cycles Per Second 07/17/24: Bandcamp, etc. Links

On this week’s show: A spectrum of indie pop, from garage-y NZ jangle (Best Bets) to spirited Cali crunch (The Frenchmen) and taut NYC melody (lame drivers). From the UK, drone-folk in rock overdrive (David Lance Callahan) to swirling and pulsating go-go pop (The Soundcarriers). Plus dreamy and dark strums from the Bay Area (Parallel, Tony Jay), indie rock from Bordeaux (Pretty Inside, Cosmopaark) and a Young Marble Giants-related Welsh obscurity (Reptile Ranch).
