NOOO, why did someone have to mention Gotya!! It played constantly in my head for weeks and I couldn't get rid of it and it immediately tried to invade my brain again but I have fought it off!! This song is abrain worm.... Loved it though !!

 

Kimbra is doing a concert over here next week, no time to go, which is a shame, but thought what a interesting performer she is.

 

Been listening also to one nil , I think people are longing for some quality Neil work nice again, hope he realised it.

Just seen that Gotye is coming to town city , cue "you didn't have to shut me out" (!! )  now it will never leave my head as radios will play it for promotion.

 

Shall I go or not, have to decide...... Anyone else seen him live? Good? Heard about the audience participation , ie:girls singing the female part of somebody, -funny.

I've been exploring the recent wave of "intelligent dance music"... LCD Soundsystem, Cut Copy, Hot Chip, Crystal Castles, M83, etc. It's kind of a hipster fad, but who cares when the music is this great.

 

Also, I went back and rediscovered the Pernice Brothers. I urge anyone not familiar to check out their album "Yours, Mine and Ours"... it's got a similar expert pop sensibility to Crowded House, though the influences are more like the Smiths and Beach Boys. It's wonderful stuff... esp the songs "Weakest Shade of Blue," "Water Ban," "Baby In Two"..

Far out! Haven't posted in this thread for ages. Some topics never really die, do they?

Just as of late, I've been re-discovering an old fave of mine from my teenage years. I've been listening to a lot of Westlife again. Strangely enough, I lost interest in them musically shortly after Unbreakable - Greatest Hits was released back in late 2002-early 2003, so I didn't really bother with the latter - breakup albums... until now. Still loving the early stuff though.

Brownie, they've been playing that new Beck on CBC R2 a bit lately.  Sounds good from what I've heard.

 

I'm listening to Ed Harcourt's new mini album, Time of Dust.  I love it, as I do most things that he has recorded.  I still remember him being ignored by the crowd, for the most part, as opening act for Neil Finn at the hottest concert I've ever attended on a sweltering July night in '02 at the Palais Royale in Toronto.  Nobody in my family appreciates the music that I love.

OH Bogue, you do bring back memories.  I too was at the sweltering concert at the Palais Royale.  No air conditioning at the time but I believe the venue has it now.  To this day, I still think about that concert and wonder how Neil managed to get through it without fainting.  Under those lights, it must have been really hot for the band.  Had completely forgotten about the opening act.  I remember people dipping their feet in the lake trying to cool off while Neil played.  The venue even ran out of water.  Truly the most sweltering concert I had ever been too.

Oh some singer who is named Finn. He brought out a new album by the name of Dizzy Heights. I think all NF fans are listening to that in some form. 

 

Along with Dizzy Heights, I've also had the beloved Celtic Thunder's MYTHOLOGY on fairly high rotation... especially disc 2. That and:

 

 

Well, it IS coming into St Pats and especially that "Acoustically Irish" album fits the mood perfectly. "Life" seems to have more of a worldly feel but cannot honestly say anything good about an Irishman singing 'And the band played Waltzing Matilda'.
