Sia – Move Your Body
This always seems to come on when I’m driving and cannot do my dance moves justice (or injustice? The judgement is perhaps not mine to make). But on the upside, red lights are now a beacon of freedom for my ready-to-flail limbs.
Helen Shanahan – I Only Hide
This slow-burning piece of country folk is the kind of song I had to listen to five times in a row. Its steady groove and haunting vocals wrestle with the anxiety of performance in the spotlight…a place Shanahan is going to have to get comfortable with if she keeps creating stunners like this one.
David Bowie – Life On Mars?
What do you do when writing about a Bowie tribute show? Listen to Bowie of course. And lust after this eye makeup job.
The Mis-Made – Blood Money
Joan Jett’s legacy is alive in these Sydney rockers, who I also happened to be writing about this month. Headbanging while writing is a skill, people.
Jack Johnson – Better Together
Summer has called for a lot of chill music, and when it has called, Jack Johnson has answered. An oldie but a goodie.
