One of Australia’s foremost music events, the Triple J “Hottest 100” once again fuelled our musical hunger on our national day and dished up a number of pleasant surprises and, for me at least, a pretty disappointing #1. Boo.
1. “Mountain Sound” – Of Monsters & Men
I’m a little slack in not having these guys featured much earlier, but enjoy this great follow up to their “monster” hit “Little Talks”. Can’t wait to see these guys at “Laneway” this Friday!
2. “My Number” – Foals
One of the most talked about tracks on the indie music blogs (“Pitchfork” etc) this week was this track from popular Oxford band “Foals”. The new clip was the talking point, and it’s worth checking out for sure!
3. “Default” – Atoms For Peace
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. “Angel, Please” – Ra Ra Riot
NEW YORK, USA
I know it’s still early, but Ra Ra Riot’s “Beta Love” which launched around the globe last week is an early contender for the “fave” albums list in 2013. I know I’m not alone on that one.
5. “Easy Come, Easy Go” – Diafrix
I’m no hip-hop fan, but let’s face it, a killer hook is a killer hook.
