#Musicmonday – #030

THE music year is well and truly off and running with Australia’s biggest Summer music festival, the “Big Day Out”, beginning its national tour last week, and the MUCH anticipated “Laneway Festival” just around the corner.

I’ve already informed my boss that I’ll be feeling sick the day that show rolls into Brisbane (February 1st), so expect a distinctly “Laneway” flavoured #MusicMonday following, in a couple of weeks time!

Here’s today’s lineup:

1. “Lanterns” – Birds of Tokyo

PERTH, AUSTRALIA

With a new album “March Fires” due to drop on March 1st, the anthemic “Lanterns” is the first release from the band for 2013. I predict a BIG year for the boys!


2. “Bluebird Song” – Syre & Fresko

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

A big thanks to my mate Shea over in Belgium for this acoustic gem from Melbourne-based husband & wife duo, “Syre & Fresko.”

Not available on SoundCloud. Boo!

3. “High” – Sun City

PERTH, AUSTRALIA

Sound a little “Radiohead” like? That’s probably because you’re hearing Thom Yorke on lead vocals. I LOVE this track and look forward to more great things from this awesome “supergroup”.


4. “Miracle Mile” – Cold War Kids

LONG BEACH, USA

A solid, first offering from the kids’ fourth studio album, “Dear Miss Lonelyhearts” due out in early April. Should be pretty awesome if this is any indication.


5. “Caress Your Soul” – Sticky Fingers

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

A catchy effort from this up-and-coming Triple J Unearthed artist who have gained a following after spending a solid amount of 2012 touring across Australia.
