Ta Simon - always enjoy some new directions to explore. Zeitgist sounds interesting!
That Port O'Brien track is nice and poppy and has been getting some good airplay on JJJ. They're from Oakland but the songs I've heard so far make me think they should be based somewhere like Newfoundland!
Here's 5 tracks that I'm listening to:
Pork n Beans - Weezer (always good for a smile)
We're Through - James Pants (US multi-instrumentalist - this is a slice of sulky electronica, but it's catchy!)
Small Planet - Ferraby Lionheart (I'll admit it, a bit like when I go to the race track, I'm drawn to the eye-catching name. Only heard this song so far so not sure if I've backed a winner just yet)
Jimmy Recard - Drapht (A WA rapper who has made a very funny little track)
Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard - Jesse Malin (I do like a cover version and this is pretty lively)
And an album:
Freedom Wind - The Explorers Club (once I got past thinking about A Mighty Wind, this was ideal to conjure up The Beach Boys. It's virtually a pastiche, but hey, it's fun to play while the winter sun is beaming into the office).
Have also just started listening online to bits and pieces of the new release by Girl Talk - more mash-ups and the like - much like Night Ripper at first listen but need to hear it a few times. Anyone else formed an opinion on this?
