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