I know that near enough two weeks without an entry is close to unforgivable, so I shall do the best I can to redeem myself. Although it only seems like yesterday since SIAC2, May has been full to the brim with exciting and, more importantly, free music. To celebrate such a fine month, allow me to introduce Slumped in a Corner Three.
1. Stay – Tully On Tully
Melbourne indie-pop five-piece Tully On Tully deliver an uplifting and light pop track. Male and female vocals, rousing drums and a delicate backdrop. Delightful.
2. Made in China – Antonio Paul
From the duo that brought you ‘City Dreams’ comes another electro inspired indie toe-tapper. So addictive and sugary that it will rot your gums.
3. City Kids – OCD
What do you get when you combine alternative hip-hop and Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’?
4. Paris – Magic Man
5. Superman – Coin & Ta-ku (Feat Mei Swann)
Oz hip-hop superheroes Coin & Ta-ku deliver a swaggering track with smooth pop sample. It will not budge from my brain.
6. Television – You Won’t
7. Peter Rabbit – Needing Cherie
8. This High – OCD
Another anthemic track from Moosh and Twist’s new mix tape ‘Back to the Basement’. Perfect gym track, will get your adrenaline pumping.
9. Sweet Wine – Antonio Paul
The second in a hattrick of Antonio Paul numbers. Slightly more frantic than the others, a more raw, unpolished sound. Not a bad thing.
10. Pogo – Dune Rats
Rowdy, carefree surf-pop. Much needed musical ammunition as we head towards the summer months. Dreamy, swirly and so very pretty.
11. Somebody Loves You – Betty Who
Sexy, glittery glam-pop. So much to like about this Aussie songstress. Full on guilty pleasure.
12. Bus Song – Brother Fox
More Australian roots music from the same mould as John Butler Trio. Chilled, thoughtful and delicately delivered.
13. City Dreams – Antonio Paul
14. Top of the World – OCD
15. The Anchor – Pierce Brothers
Right, that should have you all covered for long enough. Hopefully the next few days will see me return to more regular updates.
