ok. So if you keep up with the music bloggers out there, you may have noticed that Van She have a new track out. It’s no secret that Van She are probably one of my favourite bands out there so this is pretty exciting for me!
The boys are notorious for not really updating their MySpace/their facebook. But, if you keep up with their twitter, you’ll know that they’re currently working on a new album. So, just like their debut, V, it’ll probably take them about 2 years to finally get it out there!
But, there is good news. Triple J’s Mix Up dropped a newy from the fellas just recently. (Don’t Fear) The Reaper is pretty darn sweet. Covering an old 70’s track by Blue Öyster Cult, they’ve made it sound just like Van She. It’s a radio rip, so the quality isn’t great and who knows whether this is how it’ll sound in it’s final format, but still, it’s a goo indication as to where they’re headin!
So, without further ado, here it is.
ok. So I have been listening to a few pretty cool tracks lately. A lot of them are thanks to Launchpad Uplate on Nova here in Melbourne (I think this show is national too though. Something like 10-1130 Monday to Thursday nights). Others are thanks to HypeMachine. Gotta love it. Anyway, here’s my list.
- Coin Laundry – Lisa Mitchell (This is fresh – downloaded this morning. I’m not sure about it yet. I like it, but I think it’s gonna have to get a few more listens till I make up my mind)
- Your Call – Hermitude Feat. Urthboy and Alana Stone (I know I put this up last time, but it is still on high rotation. The beginning of the track is damn sweet and the little “I get confused making my mind up. Are you the fuse that could light me up” line in the middle is too darn catchy.)
- The Lighthouse Song – Josh Pyke (Finally decided I needed this album and I’ll finish downloading it when I get home tonight. This track is pretty good too!!)
- Pool Party 2009 – Shazam (New up and comer DJ/Remixer guy from Perth. Pretty disposable but still, is a sweet tune.)
- You’ve Got A Lot Of Nerve – Red Riders (Heard this on Launchpad last night. Great track.)
- I’m Not Alone – Calvin Harris (Sounds different to his other stuff which I like. Somebody said it had more of an underground/indie disco sound. I think parts of it do, but the rest is just his trademark commercial dance/trance kinda stuff._
- Always Like This – Bombay Bicycle Club (Heard this on Hype Machine Radio this morning (you can check out Hype Machine Radio here – they do a weekly podcast and basically just put together the most popular tracks of the week.)
- Shooting Stars – Bag Raiders (my mention of bag raiders in the Bonnie Prince post, was because it was about the only other thing I was listening to at the time. And, they haven’t left the iPod)
- Lion (Bag Raiders Remix) – ZZZ (ZZZ did a remix of Bag Raiders’ track Fun Punch a while ago and made it into a crazy psychotic piano driven track. Listen to it. It will make you nuts! This track is really good though – Bag Raiders returning the favour.)
Short list this time around. Still, there is some good stuff there. Any suggestion about tracks I should check out? Post a comment and let me know!
K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
