Following that, we have a favourite of mine from an Aussie rock band on a sold out national tour right now, and we then skip across to the US of A for a couple of tracks that’ll hopefully have some of you out of your seats and dancing like nobody’s watching!
1. “Of Space And Time” – City & Colour
Dallas Green a.k.a. “City & Colour” is, in my humble opinion, one of the most talented male artists of our time, so any new release like this one is BOUND to make #MusicMonday! Listen. Absorb. Enjoy.
2. “Needle” – Born Ruffians
Continuing the great stuff out of Canada this week, here’s a fun track from Ontario natives, “Born Ruffians”. Like a number of “Fun.” tracks in 2012, I have a sneaking suspicion this one will end up on a LOT of end of year playlists, and for good reason!
3. “The Lake” – Birds of Tokyo
WA’s “Birds of Tokyo” made a triumphant 2-night return to Brisbane this week, which is enough of an excuse for me to feature this beautiful track from the lads’ 2012 EP “This Fire”.
4. “Hard On Me” – Robby Hunter Band
Following a successful stint at this year’s SXSW festival, the “Robby Hunter Band” bring us this indie-funk special. Crank it. Dance. Repeat.
5. “Suit & Commercial” – Justin Timberlake x Daft Punk (The Hood Internet)
When JT released the first single from his latest album “The 20/20 Experience”, I was pretty quick and vocal in rubbishing it. But then “The Hood Internet” come along and add a little “Daft Punk” magic, and voila… instant improvement!
