Empire Of The Sun can walk on dreams and The Killers are dancers Comments | Oct 24 2008

Empire Of The Sun are one of those bands from Australia that are proving there are no “bad” music coming from the land down under. Empire Of The Sun consist of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson. Who knows I could be hatted for this reference but Empire Of The Sun kind of reminds me of a Australian MGMT in a with their easy listening pop psychedelia. Many people have been claiming that the remix of Walking On A Dream by Sam La More (Sam Littlemore the brother of Nick Littlemore) is the best rmx of the song. While it is good, my vote goes with VanShe Tech remix. Empire Of The Suns debut album is currently available on iTunes - watch the video and when you see the album link click it and it will talk you to the iTunes store.

The new song by The Killers does not suck, it is just as authentic and majestic a band can get. Noting The Killers are getting weirder and more obscure their music keeps raising the bar for the fusion between Indie Rock and Alternative music. Human starts off with similarities to U2 and blends into a more familiar sound of When You Were Young but making sure that they are not just banking of the sound and success of their previous hit. I found Human also shares similarities with the Toronto group Put The Rifle Down. Aside from the roaming majestic animals I am in awe of Brandon Flowers feather vest… like what? A-mazing. The Killers new album Day & Age is being released November 25, 2008.

The Killers - Human

Twist Oliver, Twist! Comments | Sep 15 2008

Twist Oliver Twist 

Hailing from Brisbane Queensland Australia, Twist Oliver, Twist! is def. progressing the sound of Australian pop, and even the global music scene. Their fast passed energetic dance sound meshed with a pop infused indie voice. Listening to their tracks I can hear definite similarities  to Interpol, some At the Drive-in, The Faint and Bloc Party’s Weekend In The City Album. I am having a hard time believing that they are still unsigned and have only been around since ‘07. Seriously watch our for these guys.  Support Twist Oliver, Twist! by grabbing their EP off iTunes in the near future.

V is for Van She Comments | Aug 11 2008

Van She

On August number 9 the debut full length from Van She is being released. If you loved The Teenagers Reality Check, I would defiantly recommend checking out Van She’s album V.

The similarities lie with the 80’s popish synths and drums.Van She hail from Sydney Australia and have been making amazing tracks since ‘05. Listening to their album I can hear influences from Nirvana, U2 and Perl Jam. For being a Psychedelic / Shoegaze / Techno (according to their myspace page) band its great hearing classic influences twisted into a more modern shape. Accordingly Modular describes Van She as a “new band from Sydney fresh on ideas, fresher than Flavor Flav, fresh like coriander, fresher than the Fresh Prince.” - Amazing.

Along with their band two members also do remixes of your fab. fav. groups and producers under the name Van She Technologic… here is some songs off their new album V.

Strangers

Van She - Sunbeams

Van She - Virgin Suicide
