Top 25 - 15 August, 2016

Hot Spoke + Amy Shark!

1. Montaigne - Till It Kills Me

2. Hot Spoke - Outlines (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: So because of reasons I've been without a regular internet connection the past couple of weeks, which resulted in much frustration and very little music. Remember the days when your music came out of weird round shiny discs or late night TV? I barely remember them either, but how good that when I did find some sweet sweet wifi connection for a minute this week I found this track by Hot Spoke, with those delightfully clangy guitars and singer Ness' gorgeously delicate vocal reminding me of times past, when dial up internet connection meant waiting all night for one song and you best pray it was a good sound once you downloaded it. If it was twenty years ago and I had to wait all night to hear 'Outlines', I would have been really, really happy once I got it, so happy that I'd probably spend a couple of hours burning it onto one of those weird round shiny discs to give to my friends and you know, if this was twenty years ago, there would have been no greater compliment to a band or a song than that.

3. Holy Holy - Darwinism

4. Gang of Youths - The Good Fight

5. Amy Shark - Adore (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: Gold Coast-based singer-songwriter, Amy Shark is back with more music realness in the form of 'Adore'. We've been big fans of previous tracks like 'Middle of the Night' and 'Golden Fleece' for their refreshingly honest lyrics about life and love, with 'Adore' keeping Shark's winning streak alive in the storytelling amazingness stakes. It's the love story we deserve AND need right now... "I want the entire street out of town just so I can be alone with you." Who hasn't felt like that just so they can adore that special someone? So many feels from Amy Shark, but you should already know that by now when it comes to her music. Top marks for all aspects of the track; the vocal performance, the story, the music and the video too. Shark's always working with an awesome team to make her clips that are shot so beautifully. I'm not sure if this is the first of many new tracks to come this year, but I'd love it if it was. In fact, I would adore that. Yep. That just happened. What are you going to do about it?
