#Musicmonday – #045

IT was a busy week for me, so apologies for this coming together rather late. Better late than never, right?

Highlight for me this week will be the return to Brisbane of one of my favourite acts with the UK’s “The Kooks” set to rock a sold out Tivoli Theatre on Wednesday night. Keep an eye out for some pics and the setlist from that one later in the week.

For now though, here’s a selection of mostly indie folk tracks for you to kick back and relax to during your working week. Enjoy!

1. “Riptide” – Vance Joy

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

Continuing the trend of great new tunes from Aussie male artists, here’s one from “Vance Joy” that I’ve been loving since it was released a few weeks ago. Finally I’ve found the space to slot it in!


2. “Hero” – Family of the Year

LOS ANGELES, USA

“Family of The Year” slow it down a little with the latest track from their acclaimed 2012 release “Loma Vista”. I can see some definite summer “road trip” potential in this wee song. Check it out.


3. “Wasting My Young Years” – London Grammar

LONDON, UK

These guys have been on my radar since their stellar first release “Metal and Dust”, a track I featured on #MusicMonday back in February this year. They have another solid offering in “Wasting My Young Years”.


4. “Let It Go” – Fossil Collective

LEEDS, UK

I promised a little indie folk this week, and that’s exactly what you get in this track from the UK’s “Fossil Collective”. For more great songs, check out their new album, released last month, called “Tell Where I Lie”.


5. “Grace for Saints & Ramblers” – Iron & Wine

SOUTH CAROLINA, USA

Remember the “Iron & Wine’s” awesome album “Kiss Each Other Clean” from a couple of years ago? Well he’s back with this new upbeat track which, by all reports, has received a nice little “leg-up” via Starbucks stores across North America.
