CAITLIN PARK

ok. So today was the first day of Triple J Unearthed radio. There is an absolute heap of hype for this thing, which, on the most part is fair enough. There is a bit of a problem in the uptake in digital radio in Australia, so I guess only time will tell. It is also being streamed online though, as well as via their iPhone app.

Anyway, they’ve been simulcasting the Unearthed station on the normal JJJ’s today, and one of the artists that sparked a bit of interest was Caitlin Park. She does the indie folktronica thing pretty darn well, and man, those ping pong sounds that form the beat in her track Baby Teeth get me every time. I’ve actually just downloaded her album off iTunes and i’m glad. Caitlin is from Sydney, but there’s something pretty Melbourne sounding about her whole sound. Make sure you check out her Unearthed profile for a bit of a taster, and if you like, grab her album (iTunes link).

new music first #9

give in to me

ok. So, yeah, well, umm, it’s been over a month since the last one of these. I said exactly the same thing last time though, so yeah, no excuse. Been doing too many features eh!

Anyway, there’s been some great great music thrown around the blogosphere lately. Thought i’d compile a few of my faves.

First up, it’s British India. These guys are a local band who’ve been around for a while. Great sound. Saw them live at a promo gig thing a while ago and they put on a freakin solid live show. If straight up rock is your thing, then check out these boys. This is a newy of theirs. Bit of a softer sound…but still great great Aus Rock!

The next find are a new band from Triple J Unearthed. They’re called Disco Nap. They’re from Brisbane, and there’s obvious links in their sound to Death Cab. Win win situation if you ask me! And believe it or not, Ross, the lead singer got his inspiration from the TV series Six Feet Under. Morbid right?! Yeah, well it sounds it, but their music doesn’t. Sounds great. Band to watch out for.

Got sent some this new one last week. When I started this music blog, I never thought i’d actually be sent music. It’s hard to keep up sometimes, especially with Uni and other work I gotta do (should really be doing that now actually!). The guys are from Sweeden, they’re called The Sweet Serenades. They’ve got an awesome awesome awesome sound. Reminds me of early KOL. That’s not a bad thing at all!!! Oh, and also, complete with cowbell! WIN!

Finally, it’s the new one from Juggers. Dystopia is a great great album. That’s their debut, for those unaware. It was awesome, dark, doom, disco, dance rock. Impossible to pigeon hole. Their new track is a bit different. When I first heard it, I really didn’t think it was that great. But I downloaded it, and, now, I kinda like it. Sure, it’s a little different to Shadows, and 45 and Rising. Some have called it a little postrock. Not usually a fan of that genre. But, now, I just might be. People are either for or against this one. Let me know what you kats reckon!

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
