Grizzly Bear – A Simple Answer

Back at it again and for me these guys are just pure class. Every track meticulously laid down and this one i’ve chosen is no exception. MZ

MS MR – Hurricane

Just so cool. Lovin this sort of music at the moment, so much of it about! Got that same sort of Grimes vibe. Will be men’al at Laneway 2013. RG

Kanye West, Jay Z, Big Sean – Clique

Fourth single of the new Cruel Summer a collaboration between members of West’s label GOOD Music. MZ

Major Lazer – Get Free

Yeah, well, I’m admittedly late getting into this one, but I’ll be forgiven for being turned off by that annoying ‘ayayayayaayaaaaaaaaaaaaya’ at the start of the tune. Reminds me of MIA’s ‘Paper Planes’. RG

Fingalick – ∆Y∆Y

Met this lad at Outlook Festival on Boat Party 1 and I dig his tracks! He’s from Lithuania and so’s a big group of his mate so check them out. MZ

The xx – Tides

The first song to really hook me into the album, and didn’t it take a while! I’d almost written this new record off by the 5th listen all the way through but this one made me think differently about the whole thing. Can never write these guys off, so much depth to their music. Awesome track. RG

Mystery Jets – Take Me Where The Roses Go

Can’t get over this album. This duet is so, for lack of a better word, beautiful. Haven’t heard a girl sing with such cute attitude before. RG

Two Door Cinema Club – Settle

My favourite at the moment from the glorious new TDCC record. Reminds me of what awesome road-trippin’ times are to be had this Summer on the way down to Marion Bay for Falls. RG

A passionate music enthusiast who unashamedly knows every word to "Wham Rap". Loves guitar, travel and the idea of graduating uni.
