I keep visiting www.mixcloud.com and listening to the new offerings there.




The little things make the biggest difference.

Charlie XCX, caught them on the iTunes festival. Nice 80's synth sound.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

I keep coming back to Alabama Shakes.

I love it, can't wait for the second album and would go to Auckland to see them live. 

How would I describe the sound? 

Well, when Dave Robicheaux (of the James Lee Burke novels) walks into a clapboard bar in Iberia Parish, Louisiana, this is the band which is playing. 

If you like Southern Blues I would suggest them. 




Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

30 seconds into playing this song, I'm programming in "the zone" that usually takes me half an hour to get to.
I can maintain the zone by putting the song on autorepeat.
Not sure why this song has that effect on me and not others - I'm searching!

edit: i give up trying to create the url link. bbcode gah!

Dunnersfella: Currently spinning Pearl Jam 10 - Redux.
Aaaaah memories (and poorly sung renditions by myself).


I loved that album, I don't think anything since has been that good from them. 8/10 for me.

I've headed back to my teenage years by listening to some Dinosaur Jr. Still enjoying it as much as they are it seems as they've just released a new album.

The latest album is surprisingly good. The 2 before it were decidedly average.

Lupe Fiasco, and I like the new one from Guy Sebastian (I'd never heard of him before)

I would put up some youtube links but I'm at work :(

Yah I really rate Guy Sebastian, he is someone I suspect will have a long career! He certainly has made a fair bit of his little exposure in Australian Idol and I rate his last couple of radio songs about a 8/10

Karise Eden's debut album, My Journey, is pretty good. What an amazing voice, love her version of Landslide.

BlueShift: I've been thrashing The Deftones - White Pony in the car since I picked it up on special at JB a couple weeks ago. I also got White Zombie's Astrocreep 2000, but that's not clicking with me quite as much.


White Pony is a dead-set classic for me. Great all the way through.

Astrocreep has a few boring moments by mostly I love it. La Sexocisto will always be the must have WZ album for me.

This week, I have been mostly listening to...

Sadistik Exekution - Fukk
Gustav Holst - The Planets
Spasm - Taboo Tales
Deep Purple - In Rock, Machine Head and Burn
Dax Riggs - We Sing of Only Blood or Love
The Cure - Pornography and Disintegration




My very metal Doctor Who theme

Devin Townsend Project – Epicloud

Half way through listening to this album. Very much liking it so far.
I suppose you would call it progressive rock.

i have a back catalog consisting of Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Pink Floyd etc.

Lately though, I've enjoyed listening to Lana Del Rey on Spotify.  Interesting sound.
