Blink and You’ll Miss a Revolution.

I haven’t posted one of my musical addictions in a while (do you recall the Steed Lord infatuation?) and, given my current day-to-day busyness settling into my new job at Woolworths House (!!!), I think it’s high time.

This song is Halloween all over for me. I’ve always been partial to a little Cut Copy, but the added kookiness of this track, video and that irresistible pop-slathered bridge have me listening to it on repeat (in my head and on YouTube).

Blink and you’ll miss a revolution, indeed.

Girls.

Diana invited a group of super hot girl bloggers from around the globe, including Kate, Angie, Cath, Milli and Jessica (a mix of fellow locals and Twitter minxes) to contribute to one of her famous music mixes.

The theme? Girls. I took it as an opportunity to listen to even more of the lusty girl band rock I’m so into at the moment.

Go listen to the mix – it’s a really sexy round up!

Girl Band

I am officially re-obsessed with this song.

A couple of sizzling hot, doe-eyed brunettes, bra-less and clad in a trifecta of suggestively goth/glam Victoriana-meets-Courtney-Love nighties?

If I’m honest all I’ve ever really wanted was to play bass in an all-girl rock band.

Klassique

I can’t stop listening to this song or watching this video this week. Besides being 80’s deluxe, I just love marvelling at how re-edgy all the eyewear, denim, bandannas and cropped knitwear has become over the last few years (and continues to be).

But the best part is certainly the frontwoman’s unflinchingly cooler than cool attitude and commitment to her rounded Wayfarers. Epic.

Beat this.

Not possible, but you can try.

Happy Friday! See ya at Tjing-Tjing.

KUDU

A couple of years ago a friend of mine introduced me to this band, KUDU, and I totally connected with their bass-driven, lyrical brand of audio sleaze.

New York-based, the band is made up of vocalist Sylvia Gordon (whose dark, soulful sound gilds even the dirtiest of lyrics), drummer Deantoni Parks, and keyboardists Nick Kasper and Peter Stoltzman.

I love their eclectic sound, their unbridled, un-PC lyrics, and Gordon’s dark diva style.

LISTEN LOUD.

Tears for Foals

Foals‘ live rendition of Tears for Fears’ classic Everybody Wants to Rule the World.

Soothing sounds for a Tuesday afternoon. Sounds like lying on your back looking at those patterns water reflects onto the ceiling during Summer.
