Before we begin, shout out to the people who make Promised Land wine because it is reasonably priced and literally always good. I highly recommend it. I drink it a lot during these articles. They are not paying me for this, I genuinely endorse their products.
This week I have used songs that I have already heard which is not a thing I like to do but I am tired and sick and they’re all fairly new. They’re also all available for free on Triple J Unearthed which is amazing. Enjoy them xox
Deep Water – Miel
Everything about this song is just cool. Like stand in a dark corner in all black except for your black and white striped turtleneck while sipping on a house red cool. At a fucking jazz club or something.
Rachel (Rachel) – The Cassandras
Take that Ross.
This is so chill and simple and charming and I’m totally into it. I am considerably more into this song than I actually am into the TV show Friends. Not that Friends is a bad show, I just think this is a great song. If you hadn’t figured it out by now this song is about Rachel from Friends.
September – Rhodesia
This is totally captivating. “Electro folk” as a genre always makes me want to yawn but I think Rhodesia’s take on it is actually unique and amazing – and that voice.
Edge Of Town – Middle Kids
Literally everyone and their fucking dog (including Project U) is talking about this song so I’m sorry if you’re sick of hearing about it – but I couldn’t leave it out just in case anyone reading this hasn’t listened yet. This is a debut single, if I could just stress that. Amazing.
Check out Miel, The Cassandras, Rhodesia and Middle Kids. Alsooooo I do this every Sunday/Monday night (usually with more commentary but as I have said I am tired god damn it) so if you want more music you can read the other ones here.
