#Musicmonday – #062

AS is sometimes the case with #Musicmonday, today’s track list is riddled with great new sounds from Aussie artists, both old and new. Old favourites Eskimo Joe lead the charge this time around, followed by youngsters Snakadaktal and indie newcomers out of Brisbane, Holy Holy.

They are joined in this case, by Moderat, an electronic project from Berlin, and a great soulful acoustic track from the US’ Amos Lee.

1. “Not Alone” – Eskimo Joe

EAST FREMANTLE, AUSTRALIA

One of Australia’s much loved rock bands, Eskimo Joe have returned to the spotlight with the launch of their new studio album, “Wastelands”, their first offering since 2011’s “Ghosts of the Past”.

“Not Alone”, a distinctively pop direction for the lads, is in my humble opinion, one of the best tracks from the new album.


2. “Fall Underneath” – Snakadaktal

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

Snakadaktal, a young 5-piece indie pop band from Melbourne have only had their debut album out on shelves for a matter of weeks and are already commanding high praise from a number of influential music blogs and reviewers.

“Fall Underneath” is their latest single release.


3. “Impossible Like You” – Holy Holy

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA

This fantastic track from Brissie lads Holy Holy was well and truly my earworm this week and therefore an obvious inclusion!


4. “Bad Kingdom” – Moderat

BERLIN, GERMANY

Moderat, is a musical project collaboration between Sascha Ring (aka Apparat), and Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary (aka Modeselektor). Together they are responsible for this great track, “Bad Kingdom”, doing the rounds right now.


5. “Chill In The Air” – Amos Lee

PHILADELPHIA, USA

I’ve always held the work of soul singer-songwriter, Amos Lee, in high regard, and it looks like his forthcoming album “Mountains Of Sorrow, Rivers Of Song” will uphold that belief if this new track is anything to go by.
