So I’ve been in Australia for two weeks now, and somehow I still managed to make my post on time. Looking at you Derek… Ok enough with that, let’s get to the hot tracks!
Courtney Barnett – Avant Gardener
I fell in love with this Lou Reed-like talk singer Courtney Barnett after shazamming her song in a bag shop whilst shopping for a bag for my trip to Australia. It was only a coincidence she happened to be from Melbourne. Check it out.
Tijuana Panthers – Boardwalk
I think I like this video more than I like the song; although the song is pretty sweet! The chorus reminds me of Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers (the song from Ghost), but with a faster tempo, and some garage rock influence. Click here if you don’t feel like watching a six minute video they made for a two minute song.
Only Real – Cadillac Girl
A laid back song made by an equally laid back dude. Only Real is a 20 year old snap back wearing Londoner who makes his surf rock rap music by himself in his bedroom. Summer’s not here yet but it sure feels like it!
Bonus Hot Track:
The Beards – You Should Consider Having Sex With A Bearded Man
The Beards are an Australian group of guys (who all have beards of course) who only sing songs about having beards. Considering I am usually rockin’ a beard myself, this song really speaks to me.
Updating this blog from my iPad was a painful experience. Seriously WordPress, get your shit together.
