Weekly Playlist 51

Words by Scenewave Oz - Published on February 6, 2011

Weekly Playlist 51 features Young The Giant, Dali’s Angels, Fleet Foxes, Foster The People, The Decemberists, Menomena, and Beach Fossils.

Young The Giant – Apartments

Apartments is the first Australian single from this Californian outfit. With an average age of 21 their music has a sophisticated sensibility that stems from them playing together since they were in high school.

Dali’s Angels – Microscopes

An Australian band to watch. They stated their strong influences have come from the tight riff/narrative driven music of bands like The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and Television. I think they pull great comparisons to The Shins!

Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues

New song of their upcoming second studio album, ‘Helplessness Blues’.

Foster The People – Houdini

Another amazing song by Foster The People. Be sure to go and see them at the Zoo, Brisbane next Sunday! These guys are awesome!

The Decemberists – This Is Why We Fight

New one from The Decemberists off their album, ‘The King Is Dead’.

Menomena – Dirty Cartoons

One of the standout tracks from Menomena’s recent performance at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival.

Beach Fossils – Calyer

Dreamy, catchy melodic tune!
