Urthboy - Shruggin feat. Jane Tyrrell

Hadn't ever really listened to Urthboy, but a mate put this song on his facebook page the other day so I checked it out.

It's a great tune, and I also really like the film clip which is filmed all around Sydney, with some of our local Inner West spots.

So here's Urthboy for you all, hope you dig it as much as I am right now.

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

This is by Katie, yep, it's her second Arcade Fire song that she's requested. She's mad for their sweet soothing styles. So Katie, take it away...

As mentioned previously, I am crazy for all things Arcade Fire!

This morning I came across their new film clip to 'The Suburbs' directed by Spike Jonze, whom I think is as bigger a fan as I am.

Apparently the band spent a week in the suburbs of Austin, Texas hanging out with a bunch of teenagers and the result is as awesome as you would expect.

It's all part of a short film that Spike Jones and Arcade Fire are collaborating on, and is titled 'Scenes From The Suburbs'. It makes for one damn fine film clip. Enjoy...

Betty Airs - Reverse Now

Yay, the Betty Airs have a new clip out and it's a goodie!

It's a psychedelic trip through the heads of the messed up minds of the Inner West and features monkeys, hobos, skaters, ping pong players, and masks. Yep, I said messed up right.

Anyway, they've been getting a fair bit of play on FBI radio over the last few months and now and it seems this crew of three have stumbled their way onto the Triple J playlists.

Hopefully we'll be hearing loads more from these guys in the months to come. If you see them live any time soon be sure to grab yourself a delicious 7inch vinyl pressing of this cool new track.

Muse - Muscle Museum

This song came on the radio this morning as I lay in bed trying to cheat the morning of a few more minutes sleep.

It's one of my all-time favourite Muse tracks, and has such a sinister and evil vibe about it. It's certainly not my standard happy up-beat song of the day.

In fact this song makes me feel that if I bumped into it in a dark alley way it would kick my arse, steal my wallet and walk off with my missus, just to add insult to injury.

The title gives off a gym junkie roid-anger feel, and I for the life of me can't tell if this is a 'break up' tune or 'big fuck you' song. Either way, it's awesome and moody as shit.

Blur - Country House

Oh Britpop, Damon Albarn and Blur, now I love thee!

My iPod was trying to tell me something this morning, as it randomly played this song twice, and I'm only on the bus for 15 minutes. And boy was I thankful!

Blur is the prefect music to start the day to. It always puts a smile on my face, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with that one.

I'm pretty pumped to see Damon and the Gorillaz out here in Australia in December. So I hope you enjoy this slice of old school Albarn to make your morning a happy one.

Neil Young - Old Man

Went to the movies last night to see the new movie Due Date and it was quite funny.

In one of the reflective moments they played this tune and it got stuck in my head. Not that we ever need to be remined how awesome Neil Young is, but sometimes it's good.

This has to be one of the greatest 'reflective' songs of all time, it certainly makes you think and step back from life and take a deeper look. At the end of the day, don't we all just want someone to love us the whole day through?

I recently picked up his album Harvest for $2 at a garage sale, best $2 I ever spent.

Stone Roses - Fools Gold

They're one of the most influential UK rock bands of the 90's, and their debut self titled release of '89 is widely regarded as one of the great British albums, thanks to a stack of classic tunes, just like this one.

I got into the Stone Roses pretty late, but have certainly always loved what ever I've heard from them, including front man Ian Brown's solo stuff which is pretty damn awesome.

Fools Gold is certainly one of the band's greatest tunes. It has such a cruisy laid back feeling with a bass and guitars funkier than my used basketball gear.

Best Coast - Boyfriend

A friend recently gave me the new Best Coast album and I gave it a spin for the first time on the way to work this morning.

Yep, it's another surf rock album, but this time the ladies are having a crack and it's very damn impressive.

I'd heard this song, Boyfriend, a fair few times before but never actually knew who it was. So thanks to Kev, it's now been playing out of my headphones all day long.

Perfect, summer sunny music.

Big Boi - Shutterbug

Today I'm going to be meeting and interviewing Big Boi, pretty pumped about it actually. I've been loving his album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty.

Shutterbug is one of the singles of this killer album and the clip incorporates all things that are good...

A mountain of sneakers, beer, neon lights, slot cars, puppets, and ladies. It's like my own personal heaven.

Kasabian - Vlad The Impaler

This song and clip ticks all the right boxes for my personal taste.

Firstly, it's by Kasabian, one of my all time favourite bands (Sorry Lou).

Secondly, it features Noel Fielding from The Mighty Boosh which just happens to be one of the greatest random comedy shows.

Thirdly it's Movember and Noel is sporting a straight up 70's 'tache that any aging porn star would be proud to call his own.

The clip is done brilliantly and highlights the fact that Noel Fielding was born three decades too late, and really missed his calling as a old school horror actor.

The Spinto Band - Oh Mandy

If you remember the blue screen scene from Wayne's World, you'll probably believe that there's nothing good or interesting in or from Delaware. I thought the same, until I found The Spinto Band who hail from that part of the State.

I don't know a hell of a lot about The Spinto Band but about five years ago a friend of mine made me a mixed CD full of super-amazingly-awesome tunes. I had never heard of any of the bands on the CD she made for me (Thanks Fiddy), but I fell in love with them all, and this was one of those beautiful tracks.

I'd never seen this clip until the other day and think it's absolutely great. I've really got a thing for stop animation at the moment, and I love the story it tells of the little town called Mandy.
