New Video - Minilogue "Animals"

New video created by Kristofer Ström, who also created Minilogue's previous music video, "Hitchhiker's Choice"

Tip: click "HD" in the top right corner of the video to get rid of those jaggy-edges.

This is getting ridiculous. Bloc Party recently did another BBC Radio 1 countdown in which Zane Lowe unleashed their brand new single, Talons. You read that right, brand new, as in "not previously heard on Intimacy." Apparantley the track was one of the last to be mixed and finished for the album, and will appear on the physical release of the CD in October.

If you pre-ordered Intimacy already, then you can download the track for free here, and a corresponding video is already out too.

On top of all this, the band have announced that they are touring our nation in November, with tickets on sale in late September.

The dates are as follows:
Thu 20 Nov – Festival Hall, Melbourne
Sun 23 Nov – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide
Tues 25 Nov – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
Fri 28 Nov – Riverstage, Brisbane
Sun 30 Nov – Belvoir Amphitheatre, Perth

Let's see if BP have any more tricks up their sleeve in the coming weeks...

When it comes to singer-songwriters, it's very hard to stand out out from the endless swathe, unless you have something unique. In the case of Jacob Golden, it's inventive production, intimate performances and a dedicated fan base; and let's not forget his fine lyrical sensibility, given ample demonstration on his second album Revenge Songs.

Great Lakes Myth Society get their band name, and much of their subject material, from their native state of Michigan. Sufjan Stevens would be proud, though the band's sound recalls a far sunnier Interpol (dress sense included as you can see) or The Arcade Fire. With only two albums to their name, the Great Lakes are quickly garnering attention outside of the Great Lakes state.

Georgie James is actually made up of John Davis (former drummer of Q And Not U) and Laura Burhenn) hailing from Washington D.C. The two claim to share a love of 50s pop music, though i'm not sure that's clear from their modern, choppy (and slightly dancey) sound. Their debut album is released through Saddle Creek Records (former label to Bright Eyes and Rilo Kiley). There you have it, a whole boy/girl duo assessment without mention of The Tings Tings... whoops.
