  • Chrome Sparks – Marijuana
  • Here’s to a happy Sunday. I’m riding this metaphorical high right now in so many different ways, especially after seeing The Black Keys & TV On The Radio last night. Both are major favorites of mine and I am pretty sure what I experienced yesterday was one of those lifetime memories. Sometimes you just need to push your way […]

    ♫ The Danks – Die Young

    We have already heard, loved, and appropriately rocked out to “Automocar” but it is now clear that The Danks have much more than just one jam up their Canadian sleeves. Their debut LP is brimming with raspy, jangly, garage pop that feels fresh and timeless. “Die Now” is my current addiction. Less than two and a half minutes of guitar … continue reading

  • In an inevitable turn of events, the global sensation Lana Del Rey has cemented her reputation as indie’s goddess by covering Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ at a live show in Sydney. While the video may not be the best quality, it’s easy to see that Lana has taken the track and put her own style on it – her powerful and emotional vocals are complemented by sweeping strings. Del Rey has spoken of her love of ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ before, and this …
  • BLAC WALDO – Skylark Funk
    3:13, via |
  • If there ever was a missing link or an underlying connection between Green Velvet and Felix Da Housecat, then Blac Waldo would be it.

  • LINKMINDZ – Time Adventure (Original Mix)
    3:13, via |
  • Ricocheting through slightly sinister means, ‘Time Adventure’s creator in Linkmindz re-establishes his eager and resonating roots sown by MTV’s old skool Music Generator computer program, and FI Studio back-in-the-day. Looking upon the rhythms of today to inspire those brand new sounds, Linkmindz is about to go all heavy n’ hard on your bass bin bootys & butts… […]
  • Introducing.. NUCK CHORRIS

  • CIDUS – ‘Dezaster’ + ‘Evil (Dance Remix)’
    3:13, via |
  • Erratically smitten and unevenly bold, Cidus allows to run riot an onslaught of gritty reverb and dynamically floorboard smashing sounds. Throwing across more hail and stones than a random tropical storm, Cidus’ two boulders from a 5-track torrent of hearty sacks, kick into touch a waterside bank of destruction.
