    Tired Lion, gee they've gotten bigger since I first heard their songs on Soundcloud years ago.
    Yeah, and deservedly so. Catchy indy rock songs with a great band and singer. I saw them support British India about 2 years ago and had not heard more than 1 song of theirs. Left that gig and got all their available music and have followed them closely since. Hopefully they keep touring regularly, as I will definitely be going to see them again.

    I have been listening to the new Matt Corby album, Rainbow Valley, recently. Very solid album.

    Also have the Gang of Youths Unplugged album in high rotation and the new Meg Mac single and also Tired Lions new single.

    Also saw The Teskey Bros live earlier this year (did a killer cover of War Pigs). They are one of the great live bands in Oz currently. Below is a live clip they uploaded a week ago.

    That is a great live album! Can’t believe how good they sound live after all those years away from it.

    Yeah I picked it up after Christmas. Took it on a road trip but was hard to listen to with a little one in the car. Certainly looking forward to cranking it up.

    Lately I've been getting into E^ST.  I just recently discovered her Like A Version mashup of Bitter Sweet Symphony (The Verve) and Teardrop (Massive Attack) and started diving into her stuff.  She has a few EP's but no full albums yet, though she recently signed with the same label that Paramore, All Time Low, & Twenty One Pilots are on.  Great voice, witty lyrics, hoping she'll have a breakout soon.
