Not particularly standout or interesting in anyway but I really love this song off his great album "Memories and Dust" - this is one of the best albums for "on the road" - it really sets the mood well especially if you're travelling through regional Australia :)

First impression? Catchy! I don't know how long they'd last on repeat but I quite like this song- a refreshing change from what I usually listen to- might actually like them...but gotta hear more of their stuff to decide...
YO LA TENGO/Mr Tough
Also, I saw Calexico, a name I had long forgotten but had been recommended to me years and years ago in the days when dial-up 56kbps internet was all the rage and youtube didn't even exist yet(!!) ...so decided to give them a listen but found myself immediately more drawn to their visually interesting video clips than their music...
CALEXICO/the black light
Finally while on the subject of music video clips...this is still my all time favourite by the great Anton Corbijn: wow I feel like such an ignoramus for not realising just how famous he is and how much he has done besides this clip! ie: taken the photos of so many famous musicians and album covers! :-o!

He captivated me with the most *amazing* (and creative) drumming I have ever witnessed in my life! (as part of Andrew Bird's band at the Sydney Festival). I spent half the show watching him play drums and remembering how that was the instrument I so wanted to learn as a kid except that being a "girl" it was seen as "inappropriate" so then I ended up with the prissy flute which I subsequently detested! ANYWAY Martin Dosh is a talented multi-instrumentalist with some really great and *interesting* experimental/electronica/folk rock music in his own right!! Check out his myspace page here.
