3rd Edition

This week is set to be another really good list. Suggestions are starting to roll in, keep them coming!

If you think i’m missing something that should be in here, or you like what’s going on drop me a line on facebook or leave a comment.

Some really cool videos to go with these songs.

3rd Addition. . . here we go!

Arcade Fire – No Cars Go (Neon Bible)

Arcade fire are an enormous band, filled with strings, organs and synths. The result is an epic sound with a hard to define style and some fun live shows. Played the main stage at the Big Day Out in 2008. Have a listen to this track and see what Arcade Fire are all about.

Julian Casablancas – 11th Dimension (Phrases for the young)

Julian Casablancas, lead singer from the Strokes has taken time out to create a solo album. This is the first and easily the best track off it. Released at the exact same time that Melbournians are getting excited for summer, this track gets you thinking about sunday sessions in the sun and having a good time. I fear however that this track will be milked on commercial radio until everyone hates Julian Casablancas, lets hope i’m wrong because this song is a ripper!

Interpol – Rest My Chemistry (Our love to Admire)

Interpol. Underrated, aquired taste. A post punk indie band form New York. They have some really good songs, with a unique often dark sound which comes straight from lead singer Paul Banks’ demon vocals. This track (although not confirmed) seems to be about Banks’ cocaine binges “haven’t slept for 2 days” and how someone has convinced him to “rest my chemistry”. . . have a listen to the lyrics and tell me what your thoughts are.

David Grey – Please Forgive Me (White Ladder)

David Grey is an artist known for writing emotioanl heartfelt songs. He is also known for being a bobble-head (watch the video and you’ll understand). This song is perhaps one of favourties. Its heartfelt, upbeat, but somber at the same time. Keep an eye out for the golem look a like playing the drums, he’s amazing. Note: (its a long video, last half is better, 3:30 onwards)

Oasis – Falling down (Dig Out your Soul)

Oasis is a band that we will never see again. Never has a band carried so much hype, so much confidence or summed up an era  the way in which Oasis have. Liam and Noel Gallagher are true rockstars, failing to give a fuck about anyone or anything. With Oasis’ recent split, the only light in this dark tunnel is the possibility of a Noel Gallagher solo album. Have a listen to Noel in action in this track from the most underated album of 2008.

Whitest Boy Alive – 1517 (Rules)

Who said White boys can’t funk? Because German band The whitest boy alive is full of it. Smooth vocals, jiving bass lines; this band is hard to not get your funk on to. This Video is a cracker, Shot at their Album release in a shop front in Berlin. have a look and keep an eye out for the german axe-murderer with the beard, freaky! (2:09)

That’s it for this week, next week i’ll be doing Sick Six – FALLS FESTIVAL. if you have any suggestions, let me know!!
