Chet Faker – 1998

Friday, June 20th, 2014

This.Guy.Is.Going.Places! Think of an upbeat Tycho with vox and this is exactly what this song is. This is easily one of my favorite songs right now. Crisp drums, hard hitting synth in a lower BPM, distorted lyrics…what else do you need. Chet Faker (né Nicholas James Murphy) hails from Melbourne, Aus and he certainly won’t be staying there for long. His debut LP came out in mid-April, so you should definitely grab that as I am sure he will become big very soon.


San Cisco – Awkward

Monday, May 7th, 2012

File this under “cutest band ever” and “can’t get this song out of my head with a mallet.” Definitely a guilty pleasure, Aussie pop-indie outfit San Cisco are fresh outta high school and ready to take on the world. Their EP Awkward already hit #34 in Australia when it released ,so they are really making waves down there. After a couple seconds of listening to “Awkward,” you’re kinda hooked. I apologize in advance for any friends you may lose from singing “doo doo doo doo doo doo…”
