Skipping stones in Tokyo, drunken adventures in Melbourne, another terminal in Bangkok, my footsteps I found in Siem Reap.
Pense de toi
Bei - "Borng sralanh puon!"
From her lips I heard her say, can I have you? Caught up on what to say, I said you do
"Red and yellow.
Pink and green, purple and orange and blue
All of the colours.
I see my love everytime I see you"
- Wasted - Angus & Julia Stone
1. Yeasayer - O.N.E
The last part of this song is a highlight and a half. Not only do the lyrics perpetuate you to a whole other world of supremity, but it’s a groovy number that applies well to those who are both sober and drunk.
2. Miami Horror - Sometimes
Funny how I’ve always preferred the singles a little bit more. Moving on, this is a complete classic to go on an adrenaline rush to. It’s got that atmospheric nature that I crave, crave and crave. Plus they are Australian, always a bonus.
3. Broken Social Scene - Fire Eye’d Boy
A bit of shoegazing into the mix. With the feeling that the vocals are halted during the verses, there is a stead allowance for the chorus to rip through with a sing-along chant that is impossible not to be hooked on.
4. Zero 7 - Simple Things
Do you like a black man’s voice? I do. Now we add some trippy yet light instrumentation towards it and it becomes some wonderland where you are floating on air up and around and all about.
5. Angus & Julia Stone - Draw Your Swords
Like a lot of people, I do prefer Angus over Julia though not by much. This is a song that truly shows Angus’ prowess as a singer letting it all loose on this dark, little number. Poignant at it’s rawest, catastrophic in it’s brilliance.
6. Kids of 88 - Just A Little Bit
This song’s chorus is pretty much a bunch of orgasms over bleepy noises. Am I using sex to convince you to listen? Yes. Why? Sex sells. But this tune is also refreshing and boppy, do not resist.
7. Ladyhawke - Magic
Talk about opening up an album! Yielding a storming hook, this song floods into your mind with bittersweet lyrics charming you away and away, the only bad thing about this song is how it stops you from listening to the rest of the album. A cure for that? Break the rewind button.
8. Wolf Parade - I’ll Believe In Anything
There’s an industrial wrehouse noise to this song that attacks you right between the eyes as fr as I’m concerned. Scornful and unforgiving, Wolf Parade are soon becoming a favourite band of mine.
9. Goldfrapp - Believer
Alison Goldfrapp is just nuts. Let’s face it, who would be able to figure out she is above the age of 40 inducing this retro number that glows and shimmers underneath Alison’s bold voice that turns violent effortlessly from angelic-like whispers. Gold!
10. Massive Attack - Prey For Rain
I left the fashion channel on simply because they were playing this vicious song which sees the group return to their origins bringing out the ‘Mezzanine’ records for amodern twist. The flickering climax is a major plus. I do quite love Massive Attack.
11. Morcheeba - I Am The Spring
I’ve been spinning their latest album for a bit now, I’m still addicted to them as always as my favourite band of all time. Skye’s velvet voice shines coupled with the acoustic guitar as she croons over an unrequited lover. I’ll never get enugh of them.
Will Never Get Enough Of These Songs
Angus & Julia Stone - Draw Your Swords
Did I post this a few days ago? I don’t know, I lose track of what I do. I’ll ignore their ARIA wins, that lacks credibility.
So c’mon Lord, draw your swords
Shoot me to the ground
You are mine, I am yours
Let’s not fuck around
Best song off ‘Down The Way’. Angus’ vocals also get a work out.
