I was looking forward to Squid's new album more than black midi's, but gotta say black midi's blew me away more on first listen. Closing track was particularly stellar. That being said, Squid's album was also pretty good (albeit, singles were clearly the standout tracks IMHO).

some Simpsons inspired doom/stoner rock from Melbourne :unsure:
if it wasnt for the album title I wouldn't have bothered but its not terrible.


For a gimmick band, they go ok. The gimmick itself doesn't overshadow the music which is very stock-standard stoner metal (not that that's a bad thing). They're certainly preferable to Okilly Dokilly (Ned Flanders metalcore band) who are all style and no substance.

so apparently God Is An Astronaut have been making high quality post-rock instrumentals for almost 20 years but this is my first encounter with them.
i like it.

New album officially released today by Australian rock band, Crowded House, called "Dreamers are Waiting".

Main singles from the new album, include "Whatever you Want", "To The Island" & "Playing with Fire".

Very good album for anyone who likes the band or loves to listen to pop-rock/alternative music in general.

Yeah I love it. That Out of Silence rebound for Neil is real. Froom makes a decent contribution. Neil clearly has his ear very close to ground, very contemporary without sacrificing that trop-beatles quintessence. I prefer it to Intriguer and maybe even self-titled, flows together really well. They’ll guest program rage tonight as well!

the WyW mv with DeMarco is really something special ain’t it. Good singles rollout, but album tracks are decent too. Love the sound they went for on this.

Looking forward to hearing the new Crowded House.

To go along with new albums by Ryan Adams and John Mayer coming out in the next few months.

It’s very impressive although, Intriguer is a beautiful album imo. “Amsterdam” is one of their finest songs ever.

I’m hoping this new one will grow on me some.

Aquatic Flowers from Tristen is some really catchy indie pop. Worth a listen if you're into that sort of thing.

this was tagged as Dance Punk and Krautrock at the place I came across it, so obviously i had to listen.
quirky rhythms with weird bleeps and bloops from a bunch of guys with a tree fetish...it's a pretty fantastic album
