philly jays save our town clip

This might get you a bit excited for your Friday night. Everyone’s faves, the Philly Jays dropped their new clip for their latest single Save Our Town this afternoon. It’s the first one with their brand spankin new drummer Susie Patten who use to play with I Heart Hiroshima.

The clip is simple and fun. Was directed by Liz Murphy when the guys were still in London town.

The guys are also back here in Australia, and are touring their new single. You can check out the deets over on their website, and you can also grab some tix from the maamf posse store.

If you do catch them live, then you’ll probably hear their killer version of 99 Problems by Jay-Z. We got it as a free download just below.

YES!!!!!

just say no to study

ok. so I’ve been a little non comital lately. I got exams on next week and i’m trying to study study study for them. There’s only two, and I’m not absolutely freaking out. But, give me time and I will I’m sure! Haha…anyway, just to keep the momentum up I thought i’d put up a post with a few tracks that i’m listening to of late. They’re all awesome of course. Hehe. Anyway, better get to it. Field independence and field dependence is calling me. oh dear.

First up is a track by a band called Hey Champ. They’re out of the states and if it wasn’t for MSotD, I don’t think I would’ve found out about them. They pretty cool indie dance stuff. But actual songs, not just a cool beat and some funky synth. Check it out here:

Hey Champ! – Cold Dust Girl

Secondo on the listeo is another band from the states. YACHT. They’re pretty good. I actually thought these guys were Australian – got that kinda sound, and I always seem to see their name on posters around the city. Anyway, great track.

YACHT – Psychic City

Third on the list is the new Jay-Z track. I don’t usually get into this sort of stuff but after NME posted it up, I thought i’d give it a listen. Is a great track too! Great sample.

Jay-Z – D.O.A (Death Of Autotune)

Next up is a tune that’s been doing the rounds for a while. It’s by a Brisbane based band called Yves Klein Blue. They are awesome. If you like what you hear, you should definately check them out!

Yves Klein Blue – Polka

So that’s it. I better get back to the study. Fun fun fun.

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
