New Australian Music

It’s Australia Day… not a day I celebrate for too many reasons to go into (here’s three links 1, 2, 3 that explore some of the reasons). Something I am passionate about though is Australian Music, so today, I thought I would preview four albums that I am anticipating will be on high rotation at Lost Shark HQ in 2013. I hope they add some fire to your Saturday morning!

Nick Cave and the Bad SeedsWe No Who U R from the new album Push the Sky Away

Cave has been lapping up the literary stardom of late, so it’s great to see him return with the first Bad Seeds album since 2008. We Know Who U R is the first single from the album.

Steve KilbeyAfrican Jesus from the new album The Idyllist

While there has been much talk about Steve leaving The Church of late, news of a new album is always welcome. Here’s the first cut from his new long player, The Idyllist.

Night TerrorsKomarov from the new album Spiral Vortex

Night Terrors are a new discovery for me, but their twisted take on the post-rock genre has been rattling round my brain in the most joyous way! And this clip is bound to make you smile.

The DronesHow To See Through Fog from their new album I See Seaweed

It’s been a long time between drinks for The Drones (five years in fact), so roll out the red for one of Australia’s finest ever rock bands. I couldn’t find a clip for this, but the pic below will lead you to the preview of the song How To See Through Fog.
