2014 in review: music

It’s that time of year again! I can’t believe 2014 is already coming to an end. It’s been such an eventful and exciting year (as evidenced by the significant lack of posts on here – my apologies!) and I love that music can play such […]

friday film: happy

friday film: happy

I love the concept of Pharrell’s new music video – it’s 24 hours of random people dancing down the street to his new song, Happy. Fortunately, it’s the kind of song you can listen to again and again, and it’s just so… happy! There are […]

best of 2012: music

With the official Gangnam Style YouTube clip hitting 1 billion views just an hour or so ago, it seems a great time to discuss the best songs of the year. Of course, the K-Pop hit has to be up there, along with Carly Rae Jepson’s […]

friday film (clip): big jet plane

Angus and Julia Stone took out the number one spot in Triple J’s Hottest 100 for 2010 (an Australia Day institution for those readers from overseas). While it wasn’t one of my votes, its easy tune and sweet lyrics have been swirling around my head […]

2010 in review: music

Around this time each year, I search through my mind in an attempt to remember the ten best songs I rocked out to / belted out in my car / danced to all night / etc. I take my voting in the Triple J Hottest […]

friday film: viral love letter

I’m a hopeless romantic so this sweet YouTube clip totally sucked me in, even though it screams “gimmick to promote the band”. Walter C. May’s girlfriend moved away to Duke University for graduate school and to show her that the distance between them didn’t matter, […]

in the news: silent song

I’ve had trouble coming up with something to blog about today so what does one do when words fail? Turn to silent song, of course. The British charity single, “2 Minute Silence” has been released to support the Royal British Legion ahead of Remembrance Sunday […]

in the news: the iphone band

Atomic Tom, a four-piece band from Brooklyn, have been performing for a while but nobody really paid them much attention. After all, there are a lot of semi-decent bands in NYC. Over the past few days, however, this band has become rather popular. On Friday, […]

monday mash-up

monday mash-up

It’s that time of week again when Mondayitis hits us all hard. Unless you’re at home playing nurse to a boy who just had surgery to fix his collarbone. Then you’re probably keeping yourself entertained by surfing the net while he’s in a drugged-out haze. […]

top tunes: odessa by caribou

I’m generally a “real instrument” kind of girl but for some reason this electronic tune by Canadian artist Caribou (formerly Manitoba) has got under my skin. It’s been on high rotation on Triple J for a while now but if you haven’t heard it, click […]

in the news: powderfinger to disband

Sad news today that one of the successful bands out of Brisbane will call it quits after 20 years. Powderfinger will disband (so to speak) after a seven-week tour through 21 cities in September-October this year. At the press conference this morning, Bernard Fanning read […]
