#Musicmonday – #032

WHOA! What a week in music!

On top of the awesome “Laneway Festival” on Friday, it looks like artists are starting to get into the swing of the new year with a bevy of new single releases and album announcements keeping me on my toes this week.

Honestly, I could have published up to 10 new tracks this week. I’ll exercise restraint until next week, however, and instead post a few pics I captured on Friday after Kirsten and I caught some amazing acts like “Kings of Convenience”, “The Neighbourhood”, “The Rubens”, “Of Monsters & Men”, “alt-J”, “MS MR”, “Alpine” and more!
Norway's 'Kings of Convenience' - Laneway Festival 2013

Iceland's 'Of Monsters & Men' - Laneway Festival 2013

'The Neighbourhood's' Jesse Rutherford - Laneway Festival 2013

'Alpine's' Lou James - Laneway Festival 2013

2013 Laneway Festival performer schedule

1. “Flaws” – Bastille

SOUTH LONDON, UK

I must give a shout out to #MusicMonday subscriber Tara (@TClarke1), via @MichD10, for this find. It’s an upbeat cracker!


2. “My Sweet Valentine (ft. Ati Fisher)” – Mykel

DUBLIN, IRELAND

A great song & a nifty bit of proof that it’s not just great celtic folk music that makes its way out of the Emerald Isle these days!


3. “Time Will Tell” – Hospital

MOSCOW, RUSSIA

Pretty sure “Hospital” is the first Russian band (although you’d never know they were Ruskies if I didn’t tell you) I’ve featured on #MusicMonday. Yay for diversity!


4. “Land of Gathering” – The Ceremonies

LOS ANGELES, USA

Really dig the change up in this first offering from Californian band “The Ceremonies”. Stick with this one till the end!


5. “The Sound Of Creation” – Washed Out

GEORGIA, USA

Ernest Greene, aka “Washed Out” has come up with a stunning instrumental for a campaign for electronics manufacturer “Phillips”. Stoked to have great new material from one of my favourite artists in 2011.

Not available on SoundCloud. Boo!
