#Musicmonday – #036

IFEEL a little spoiled as I sit here typing out this week’s edition of #MusicMonday, having just had the pleasure of catching two great live acts at two different venues on the one night.

First up last night was a cheeky, free “Donavon Frankenreiter” gig at Brisbane’s “Jubilee Hotel”, clearly (given the drink specials and paraphernalia on the walls) put on by the good people at “Corona”.

The ol’ surfer-come-entertainer with the trademark ‘stache put on a great show and was the perfect warm up for the “Tallest Man On Earth” gig at “The Hi Fi” in Brisbane’s West End I caught later in the night. What a HUGE talent the Swede Kristian Matsson is. Wow!

If you haven’t had the pleasure of checking out any of his work before, stick around for the last song in today’s selection.


1. “We Share The Same Sun” – Stereophonics


One of my all-time favourite bands are back with a new album in 2013 which kicks off with this signature sounding gem! Love it!

2. “So Close” – Kidnap Kid


Sticking to the UK corner of the world, here’s a sharp electronic offering from London producer “Kidnap Kid”. This one’s an “up-loud-in-your-earphones” kinda tune!

3. “The Others” – Birds of Tokyo


I’ve previously already featured a couple of “Birds of Tokyo’s” released tracks from their new album (launched last week) “March Fires”, but “The Others” is definitely one of the best from the rest.

4. “Fly Under The Radar” – Stillwater Giants


Sticking to tradition, #MusicMonday wouldn’t be #MusicMonday without a “Triple J Unearthed” artist to sample for the first time. Here’s the debut single from Perth’s “Stillwater Giants”.

Not available on SoundCloud. Boo!

5. “Where Do My Bluebird Fly” – Tallest Man On Earth


As promised, here’s the track that really left me gobsmacked as Kristian Matsson (aka Tallest Man On Earth) enthralled a packed crowd at “The Hi Fi” last night. SEE this guy perform live if you can – it’s an experience you won’t forget.
