Top 25 - 6 February, 2016

Violent Soho, Mia Dyson, Highasakite + The Lumineers!

1. Montaigne - In The Dark (#1 for 3 weeks!)

2. Grimes - Kill V. Maim

3. Highasakite - Someone Who'll Get It (NEW)

4. PJ Harvey - The Wheel (NEW)

5. Le Pie - Up All Night

6. Violent Soho - Viceroy (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: Violent Soho are like the Paddle Pops of Australian music. No matter what fancy toppings you put on your ice cream, no matter how many cookies you squash ice cream in the middle of, no matter whether it’s deep fried or gelati-fied, all of those ice creams are fine, but there’s always the Paddle Pop, sitting there in the corner of the convenience store fridge, doing its thing, not bothered by the salted-caramel-double-chocolate-with-nuts-covered confections nearby; that Paddle Pop is confident and just getting on with the job of being a rectangular-ice-confection-on-a-stick-delight. Just like Violent Soho, taking no guff from anyone else, doing their thing, getting on with the job of rock, playing their gritty guitars in their suburban garage rock way and singing their suburban tales with so much heart, simply being their solid rock selves. All of that and in ‘Viceroy’, they also sing one of my favourite lyrics of the year so far “a computer is a better friend than I’ll ever be, I ditched you Saturday night cause I want you to know, take a photograph it’ll last longer, I feel so temporary, like some viceroy…” Even though it’s only February, I’m pretty sure I’ll find those words impressive for as long as I have the slightest social media addiction. Which will probably be a while yet. (Jo Michelmore)

7. Ecca Vandal - End of Time

8. Bad Pony - Zombie

9. Mia Dyson - Right There (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: Australia's champion of the blues, Mia Dyson, has released the title track to her Right There EP, which is due out February 12, 2016. If you want to give the EP a listen in full before it's out there in the world (and you should), US Billboard have given it a little streamy-stream and talk about how P!nk is a big fan of Dyson's. 'Right There' has all the trademarks of a classic Dyson track; lyrics that paint a vivid story in the listener's mind, guitar lines from one of Australia's very best musicians and that soulful and at times totally defeated voice that we've come to love so much over the past couple of years. We're thrilled to have one of AUS music's greatest storytellers and performers back and later in the year you'll be able to see Mia Dyson on tour when she returns to our shores. (Matt Bond)
