Not that he hasn’t been busy in the interim playing with the likes of Electronic, Pretenders, The The, Paul McCartney, 7 Worlds Collide, Modest Mouse and the Cribs, just to name a few as well as being an in-demand session musician and songwriting collaborator.

The Messenger is the album and the title track.

Tame Impala

Tame Impala, the psychedelic rock band from western Australia and the brainchild of Kevin Parker, is beginning to make some significant noise outside of their home country.

Their praiseworthy 2nd album, Lonerism, was released last year in Australia, filtered around the world and topped numerous best of 2012 lists.

“Elephant” is the song.

The Postal Service

They released one brilliant album, Give Up, in 2003.

Now 10 years later, the album has been re-released by Sub Pop with additional material and 2 new songs including the new single “A Tattered Line of String”.

Local Natives

Hummingbird, the 2nd album from Local Natives is now available.

We spotlighted the preview track, “Breakers” in October. It is still available as a free download from the band’s website.

“Heavy Feet”-melodic and lovely with a hint of melancholy-is the first single.

The Strokes

It’s been awhile as I have been on the road touring Australia but there is so much new good music to share so let’s begin.

And what better way than with new Strokes music.

Comedown Machine, their 5th album, is scheduled for the end of March.

This band is the sound of New York City as heard on the first single “All the Time”.

Also included here is “One Way Trigger”, a slightly different sound for them and a song that was a free download for a time on their website.
