On my playlist: Is This How You Feel? by The Preatures

In each of us there are always these two
The one who stays, the one who’s leaving you
I could keep on with the same mistakes
Or I could make them with you

There was time that most of the music I gravitated to came from New Zealand and Australia.  So much so, I didn’t keep up with the American music scene at all.  These days my ears have been listening to more and more American indie.  But, every once in a while I find myself listening to acts from Australia and New Zealand again.  Take a listen to Australian band The Preatures.

On My Playlist: Rollercoaster by Bleachers

So come a little closer
There was something I could tell ya
You were such a rollercoaster
And a killer queen you are

Sometimes Most times, I need a little pick me up by way of music to get my day started. These days its been Bleachers’ Rollercoaster.  Its the kind of music that’s fresh, but reminds me of another time.  I find myself listening to this song more than once on my commute to work.  Have yourself a listen.

On My Playlist: Dick Johnson, Boh Runga, & Tiki Taane- Shadows

 

Did I ever mention that I really like the music coming out of New Zealand lately?

It being hump day and all, I found my musical taste gravitating towards something chill and trance-like. A song that didn’t remind me of how far away the weekend was  (two more days?) and a song that would ease me into the rest of the week.

Insert Shadows.

As a song, it fits the groove of my week.  As a video, its all the more pleasing– black and white, interpretive dance, and dripping with sensuality and… oil?

And it just so happens that one of my all-time favorite singers makes up a third of this group.

Yeah, this song is definitely on my playlist.

 

What song is getting you through the week?
