#Musicmonday – #051

IT’S been a while since I’ve featured a good couple of rock tracks, so that’s exactly what I’m leading with this week, kicking off with the welcomed return of the Arctic Monkeys.

Following that, there’s some indie folk, some dance and a haunting tune from one of this year’s hit movie soundtracks – something for everyone!

1. “Do I Wanna Know?” – Arctic Monkeys

SHEFFIELD, UK

With a new album due later this year, the Arctic Monkeys launched this slow, sexy, Black Keys-ish rock number as their first single last week. I’m a fan… clearly.


2. “I’ve Been Thinking” – The Occupants

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Sticking with the rock theme, this cracker from Sydney’s Gower Brothers (aka The Occupants, formerly “The Cogs”) has been one of the most played tracks on Triple J of late.


3. “Harper Lee” – Little Green Cars

DUBLIN, IRELAND

Young Irish band Little Green Cars recently offered up this great indie folk track, taken from their debut album “Absolute Zero”.


4. “Sukha” – Toby Hedges

SOUTHAMPTON, UK

If you like a good dance track, then here’s a treat for you. 20 year-old UK producer Toby Hedges launched this original gem a few months ago & has been turning heads since.


5. “Young & Beautiful” – Lana Del Ray

NEW YORK, USA

So I saw Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” last week. A beautifully crafted movie, in Baz’s signature style, communicating a pretty flat-line story. Keep an eye out for the soundtrack though. Some good tracks to be found including this dramatic number from Lana Del Ray.
