Ultimately you will be the judge, however, so take a listen to the selection below and let me know if you find something new you like.
1. “St Clarity” – The Paper Kites
One of my fave indie finds of the past couple of years, Melbourne’s “The Paper Kites” are back with a new single filled with banjo and Sam & Christina’s trademark melodies.
2. “Atomic Man” – Portugal. The Man
A super quirky morphing clip accompanies this new track from Portland’s “Portugal. The Man”. Keep an eye out for their great new album “Evil Friends”.
3. “Strong” – London Grammar
Everything Hannah Reid, Dot Major and Dan Rothman aka “London Grammar” touch, turns to gold. Brilliant. Haunting. Nuff said.
4. “Fred Astaire” – San Cisco
A fun track from a fun, young Aussie group out of Fremantle. Triple J darlings, “San Cisco” have had a stellar year capped off by their current headlining tour in the US.
5. “Survive” – Kidnap Kid
Closing things down this week is this 7:30min beauty from UK producer “Kidnap Kid”. This ain’t the first time I’ve featured the Kid’s work on #MusicMonday, and I doubt it’ll be the last.
