The Presets/If I Know You

In another life I think I would be a great music exec.

I was sitting in a hotel this week when I heard this TUNE. I liked it so much I had to know what it was so with the help of the hotel person we "hound dogged" it on his Iphone...

found out it was this song...the clip is cool Billy Elliot on speed! In any case I finally managed to find a copy for purchase and then realised that it was the 2008 ARIA album of the I said, I'd be a great music exec...

Hello Little Cousin! (Music out of NZ) Goldenhorse X3 + Opshop

I noticed this VOICE by accident while listening to She will have her way (The songs of Neil and Tim Finn) album.

And that's how I discovered GOLDENHORSE with that characteristic Aussie daggy pop sound big in the late 80s/90s that I LOVE...she is EXACTLY like a young NZ version of Angie Hart, complete with the quirk. Definitely going to go get an album...

Three songs I really like:



Somone actually suggested that New Zealand is SO my kind of it was pretty cool when looking at Goldhorse clips, discovering another New Zealand band...OPSHOP-lol this is unexpected from me but I thought they were worth a clip too :)


She will have her way...The songs of Neil and Tim Finn

I really like Clare Bowditch's rendition of that beautiful classic


But I still like Tim Finn doing PERSUASION himself.

Sigur Ros/Gobbledigook

This is my favourite song this weekend...Gosh I love the Icelandic abourt great attire! And what is it about their unique environment that produces such great music?

I would love to be Icelandic...especially if I could be as cute as Bjork (lol) but heck I'd take any part of Scandinavia I think -being able to speak in their cool sounding tongues alone would be worth it :)
