Just in time to stand as the soundtrack to you pulling on your party pants this evening, Tim “VOTE YES” Lambert has filed his 5 Choons. This is a particularly rad edition; get in!
Alex The Astronaut, Not Worth Hiding
Sydney’s Alex the Astronaut is following up her dream debut EP To Whom It May Concern with See You Soon in October, and this is the first taste of it – a bare-bones, coming-of-age tale preaching self acceptance, over some lush strings.
It’s good timing too; this week has been pretty important for our big burnt country. By now, I hope everyone (who’ll be voting ‘yes’) has checked their electoral details and are ready to change Australia’s future.
The Killers, Run For Cover
The follow-up to The Man is much more of the signature Killers sound that you’ve been looking for. Not to knock The Man – disco is very en vogue at the moment – but Brandon Flowers belting choruses like this is what made the Vegas group one of the biggest bands in the world.
PUP, Old Wounds
Welcome to the best film clip ever made; Canadian punks PUP have released a fully interactive video to last year’s Old Wounds. I’m on my fifth play through. Happy Friday to me.
King Krule, Czech One
Four years ago Archy Marshall released an album under the most popular of his many monikers, King Krule. Since then he’s released A New Place 2 Drown under his birth name, which saw a departure from the signature slinky guitars and howling vocals. Now performing as King Krule again, his new track Czech One sees the return of his much-missed, haunting baritone.
Dua Lipa, New Rules (Alison Wonderland Remix)
One time JB Hi-Fi employee Alison Wonderland has released the first official remix of UK singer Dua Lipa’s #1 hit New Rules. While I’m hanging out for the first signs of the Sydney producer’s follow-up to 2015’s huge debut album Run, this will hold me over for the time being.
AW will be back on our shores for her new Wonderland Scarehouse Project (watch the trailer below), and Lipa will be out next year to support Bruno Mars’ stadium tour.
