New Music- December 2014

Some new music I am really enjoying.

Tom Vek- Sherman (Animals in the jungle).
A colleague and I heard this on Triple R on Friday afternoon at work (the boss left early, so we switched the radio over from Bogan rock to community radio). It was just before 5pm and we both stopped and said.. Wow! What is this?? It is a little Strokes sounding... Such a great rhythm track

Speaking of Rhythm...
Caribou- 'Can't do with out you'

This track is the first track of his new Lp 'Our Love'. I really loved his last Lp 'Swim' and this new one does not disappoint. Beautiful put together electronic sounds.

Caribou- 'Can't do without you'

Rudely Interrupted- 'I am alive'

This is a Melbourne Band, who write and play fun pop music.
They have a website you can check out if you like.

Neil Young- 'Razor Love'
I was watching a TV program with A.K. recently and this tune was used in it to great effect. It reminded me when the 'Silver and Gold' Lp was released in 2000 and I really loved this track off it. I still love it.

Another older tune is 'Cannibal's Hymn' by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
This is off the 2004 double LP ' Abbatoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus'. In recently purchased this on vinyl. This track in particular is off the 1st Lp 'Abbatoir Blues'.

The Shambelles, the end is near....

On the 20th of December, the Shambelles will play their last gig. They have been around for 6 years and are an ACE party band. I have taken a quite a few photographs of the band over the past few years. Not only has my confidence as a photographer grown over this time, but we (the band and I), have become more and more comfortable with each other, which shows in the photographs.

If you are around on December 20th, then pop down to the Lomond Hotel in East Brunswick (Victoria, Australia), to see the band go out with a bang!I'll be there as well..maybe come along and share a beer with me :-)

Here are some images I took of their second last gig, at the Royal Oak hotel on November the 20th.
