10/10 WOULD LISTEN - SEPTEMBER

The 10 songs web editor man listened to a lot over the last month.

Andras & Oscar – Looking Back

This is the second single from Oscar Key Sung and Andras Fox’s new album Café Romantica. Oscar’s voice is one I could listen to on repeat for eternity, and Café Romantica could be the most perfect name for these guys combined sounds ever.

And (Dave Rennick) – U Know Me

Dappled Cities co-frontman Dave Rennick throws down this high-energy disco jam with the help of a silky-smooth Donny Benet moog solo, balancing nostalgia and now with aplomb.

Lisa Mitchell – Wah Ha

It’s hard to believe Lisa Mitchell is only 24 and already looking towards her third album. Wah Ha will ease you back into her chilled folk sounds, and that lush, breathy coo she calls a vocal.

Xul Zolar – Ilajalay

This is the first single to be taken from German three-piece Xul Zolar’s upcoming debut EP, and you can see how they bonded over a love of Talking Heads and The Smiths. They’d be a killer support for someone like Panama, to give it some Aussie context.

Olympic Ayres – Say My Name (Avenue Remix)

Celebrating the release of their latest EP Leisureplex, Olympic Ayres give the keys to single Say My Name to Avenue for a DFA-honouring remix. Avenue’s cosmic synth sounds are a perfect compliment to Olympic Ayres disco vibe.

Left. – When My Body Sleeps

Left. is a Sydney electronic outfit who’ve just wrapped up on their debut album Sirens, and When My Body Sleeps is a slinky first taste. The sparse beats combined with sultry vocals are a match made in heaven – they’re supporting Thelma Plum on her upcoming national tour, and you should check ‘em out.

Jake Hart – Touch

What a voice! This is a really slow tune that lets Jake Hart’s voice carry the weight of the whole thing, and why not? That’s not to take away from the production – it’s atmospheric and moody, but the vocals are the standout here.

Redinho – Get You Off My Mind feat. Brendan Reilly

This guy’s profile is gonna go up pretty quickly around these parts I reckon. Signed to same label as people like Rustie, Sophie and Hudson Mohawke (i.e. bloody good pedigree), it’s funky, smooth, slow disco produced perfectly. You can have a listen to the whole album on his YouTube – do recommend.

The Walking Who – With Roses

Loving the Monty Python vibes on this clip, perfect for a psych-rock trio out of Sydney right? They just won the FBi Radio Northern Lights competition, and fair enough with comparison to the likes of The Flaming Lips, Future Islands and more coming thick and fast.

Richard In Your Mind – Hammered

Celebrating the release of their new album Ponderosa, this SPOD-directed video clip is exactly as chill and fun as these guys’ sound. Indie-pop in its purist – and most enjoyable – form, catch these dudes on the east coast over October/November.

BONUS - CUZ I FEEL LIKE IT

Thrupence – Silk

Love Thrupence, loved his first Future Classic release Don’t You Mind, and even though Silk is a bit more chiller, it’s just as good. His new mixtape comes out November 7, and it’s gonna be your essential summer soundtrack.
