I have purchased a few new things that I want to share with you. Hopefully you may find something of interest, that you then further explore and support the artist/s involved.
A Canadian singer/songwriter who has just released a new LP title 'Pink City', this track is off it.
Jennifer Castle- 'Sailing away'
The Peep Tempel
This track has a language warning to it. It is a bit raw and Aussie, it wears it's heart on it's sleeve and has me singing 'I don't think Trevor is good for' loudly in the mornings as walk down the back streets of Fitzroy.
The Peep Tempel- 'Carol'
The man who was Dinosaur Jnr, who help define the 90's alternate scene, has just released another album where the acoustic guitars are preferred over loud electric distortion. The most recent LP is titled 'Tied to a star'. The track 'wide awake' has Chan Marshall (Cat Power) on vocals as well!
J Mascis- 'wide awake'
I don't know much about this band. They are from Long Beach, California, they have a new album out, but this track is from their 2010 Self titled LP.
Avi Buffalo- 'What's in it for?'
If you have been under a rock and didn't know David Bowie had a new LP out a while back (mid 2013), you may have missed this brilliant track, which has a fragile and maudlin quality to it. I don't know how many times I have listened to this and at the end, earnestly sang 'as long as there's me, as long as there's you', as I wistfully looked off into the distance....
David Bowie- 'where are we now?'
Grant Lee Buffalo
An old tune that has for some reason resurfaced and I seem to be playing a lot, of late. This is off the 1994 Lp 'Mighty Joe Moon' and has some great lines such as:
'Devastation at last finally we meet
After all of these years out here on the street
I had a feeling you would make yourself known
You came along just to claim your place on the throne
And I have been overthrown
Grant Lee Buffalo- 'Mockingbirds':
