Top 25 - 4 October 2016

Tkay Maidza, Bec Sandridge + Kimbra!

1. Bec Sandridge - High Tide (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: So last Friday morning when I heard the new track from Bec Sandridge I was pretty sure I had my pick for this week's Top 25 sorted, then Friday afternoon Matt sent me the link to Kimbra's little surprise release and I was like "WHA?" because I couldn't believe two incredibly awesome women could release two awesome songs on the same day and then I was torn between which one to write about. We've got a long history of loving Kimbra, with her making numerous appearances on our Woman of the Year and our end of year countdown lists, so I decided to leave Kimbra to Matt (should he choose to write about her, I don't tell him what to do with his life) and write about Ms Sandridge, who's more than likely to make our lists this year - spoiler alert! And beside that, only days ago I was listening to Blondie's 'Tide Is High' so maybe that was a sign I was going to love 'High Tide'. With comparisons to both Blondie and Fleetwood Mac there's pretty much no chance I was going dislike this song, but it's not the comparisons that are important, it's the vocal that demands attention and the rolling, shadowy guitars that hypnotise you into listening again and again. I declared myself a big fan after we saw her play at BIGSOUND, but if she keeps releasing tracks like this there's no doubt that my big fan status will turn into massive fan status very, very quickly. Bec Sandridge plays with Cub Sport on a national tour beginning 21st October in Adelaide, which pretty much sounds like a gig one needs to attend! (Jo Michelmore)

2. Tkay Maidza - Tennies (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: "When I put my tennies on, when I put my tennies on." I can't stop singing it and I don't even really know what it's about. Such is the power of Tkay Maidza. A thorough investigation (Googled it) showed that 'tennies' are tennis shoes. So I'm assuming that when Tkay puts her tennies on, it's the equivalent of Penny Wong taking her glasses off on Q&A. Shit is about to get real and someone is about to get a verbal smackdown. Released as the follow up to 'Carry On' as a preview to the upcoming debut album TKAY, 'Tennies' will have you putting on your finest Dunlop Volleys and ready for one sick night on the town. The badass transference is strong with this song. It will give you attitude like you wouldn't believe. Listening to this song will make you feel like you're walking into a club with a wind machine blowing your glamorous hair out while everyone stares at you with jealousy dripping out of every fiber of their being. In this regard, 'Tennies' is the new 'Pass That Dutch'. Perfect for any dramatic entrance, to get any party started and to make you furiously attempt to memorise the rhymes as fast as you can. #putyourtennies out in support of Tkay Maidza, get this song and get even more excited about the October 28 release of TKAY.
