Holy crap what a great album.

Have heard the name be mentioned around the traps and have heard a couple of things which I liked the sound of, but the album is great.

Ranges from pretty downbeat introspective pieces of sublime sound like "Hearts a Mess" which sounds vaguely familiar. I keep thinking Nitin Sawhney-ish vocals but that aint quite right.

Some sparse electro-ish sounds in a fuck-you to waiting in a call queue (Thanks for your time), and some uplifting electro-beachboys-goteamish party sounds on learnalilgivinanlovin. This will be vying for track of the year without any doubt. Just makes ya want to break out and dance like an invisible fool with the cheesiest grin

There will be live shows through melbourne over the summer so will be interesting to see how the sounds translate

www.gotye.com for some free downloads

whilst spruiking some great new oz music, check out this guy as well

i haven't actually heard the album, but he is my brother's friend.

i think my brother is going on tour to Homebake with his band, The Basics, as their hype man or something...



i've only heard one song, and it was pretty funky, so i'll have to check the album out.
