LISTEN: The Comments by Yeo

YEO, Melbourne-based musician and producer gifts the Universe his new single, “THE COMMENTS”. His first single of 2018, “THE COMMENTS” is a slow sultry R&B jam. YEO¬†says the song is about the futility sometimes found in online discussion. Stuck in denial, people often use the shield of the Internet to avoid the consequences of their words. “THE COMMENTS” is from this forth coming 2019 EP. … Continue reading LISTEN: The Comments by Yeo

Eargasm of the Week: “Hold Me Closer” by LANKS

LANKS is one of those artists that manages to take¬†sounds that might not¬†individually appeal¬†to one’s ears but once he combines them all together, it is a euphoric melody to the ear. I sort of imagine him in brightly lit scientific lab but instead of smoke billowing from test tubes, it’s a drum heart beat here, a distorted wailing noise there, and¬†the sound of electricity over … Continue reading Eargasm of the Week: “Hold Me Closer” by LANKS

TRACK OF THE DAY: “Saccharine” by Quintessential Doll

QUINTESSENTIAL DOLL¬†started as the solo project of Brisbane’s STEPH LINSDELL¬†but as she says, “along the way I invited some friends to join me on the musical journey.” Her EP¬†LET NOT THE MASTERS DESTROY ME is 6 wonderful tracks of “darkly whimsical indie-folk with splashings of electronica”. Our favorite track is “Saccharine” and the song lives up to the title because it is a wonderful sugary … Continue reading TRACK OF THE DAY: “Saccharine” by Quintessential Doll

Track of the Day: “I’ll Be Home(less) for Christmas” by 8 Bit Love

Those fanciful fun fellows from 8 BIT LOVE have given us a non traditional Christmas song (the best kind I say) with “I’ll Be Home(less) for Christmas”. 8 BIT LOVE‘s¬†¬†quasi-Christmas carol¬†was inspired in December 2012 when frontman, Vito, and housemates received an eviction notice in the mail. “It’s a tale of shock, anger, despair and the concerns of the bonds between housemates when bond is … Continue reading Track of the Day: “I’ll Be Home(less) for Christmas” by 8 Bit Love

Track of the Day: “Legendary Lovers” by 26

I am a bit biased, but 26‘s cover of KATY PERRY‘s “Legendary Lovers” is absolutely wonderful. Even if I am biased, I prefer the cover by¬†26 over the original. The song sounds meaningful and full of emotion their way and while I listen to Katy’s version, I feel as if it’s a series of bad puns sung by 16 year old. That’s just my opinion. … Continue reading Track of the Day: “Legendary Lovers” by 26

Track of the Day: “Beach Houses” by LANKS

Cover: “No Diggity” by Chet Faker

“No Diggity” by BLACKSTREET might be one of my favorite R&B songs from 90’s and CHET FAKER does an absolute wonderful cover of it. He strips it down to an almost jazzy vibe. It’s seductive and sexy. CHET FAKER‘s version of “No Diggity” was featured in Beck’s Sapphire Beer Super Bowl Commercial and can be purchased on iTunes. Listen below and let us know what … Continue reading Cover: “No Diggity” by Chet Faker
