10 future songs of the day

Sky Needle

It isn’t easy running an internationally-ignored website. Sometimes there just isn’t time to feature everything you want to feature.

Here are 10 songs that didn’t quite make it into the series no one is calling inspirational – and yes, I am taking suggestions for future spots:

Sky Needle (ties in with fine new album Rave Cave)

  • Makes me proud to be living in Brisbane. Disorientates, always.  Makes me feel woozy, sea-straggling, inebriated. Lives, wobbles and oscillates in a world of its own making. Cuddly, like jelly.

Murkage (ties in with Hannah Golightly’s blog entry)

  • Nasty. Dark. Impenetrable, but not. Repetitive, but rightly so. Horrorcore. I’m whooping it up like a depressed coal miner.

Miss Li (not sure how I came to this, perhaps via Amanda Palmer? Not sure how much I rate this either)

  • Every female cabaret performer has a shy indie boy who loves them.

The School (ties in with everything I love)

  • Excuse me while I swoon. (Swoon. Swoon. SWOON.) I miss Cabaret Obscura … I so wanted to type Voltaire … just a little less right now.

The Flaming Lips with Yoko Ono

  • Sometimes, the concept is enough in itself. My head is still reeling from being around the psychedelic fountain.

Bambino Koresh (ties in with Tom Randall’s live review)

  • Pop music. Australian pop music. Heartfelt, pure Australian pop music. Heartland Australian pop music. Perfectly judged. Perfectly executed. This song is everything triple j is not.

White (ties in with Princess Stomper’s ‘China’ blog entry)

  • Something of an ambient techno song, according to its YouTube listing. Wow. Really? Sounds like the remnants of a civilisation’s machine age falling onto ceilings decades above my head, useless.  Jackhammers made of rabbit skin.

24 Hours (ties in with Princess Stomper’s ‘China’ blog entry)

  • Intense. Like vomit. Probably NOT named after The Chefs song.

Raw Geronimo

  • Mystery. Pretension. Eyelids flicker. If the T.A.R.D.I.S. made music …

    I must protest that choice of Miss Li song as a future song of the day! It’s not her best… it doesn’t even capture what is so great about Miss Li. Consider this a placard voting against that song. Or if you prefer, I can write on my bare breasts about it like a music version of FEMEN. Up to you.

    And I reckon I already protested enough about that particular song by Murkage already to the point that the entire band started joining in with some blazing political row on these very pages. So enough said. Other than that, I think Torches is a better song.

    Thanks for the Bambino Koresh though…

    Reviewed on breasts: FEMEN style protest against shit music. We haven’t done that yet have we?

    Anything by this guy should be song of the day at least once.



    Plus, he’s probably the nicest guy in rock aside from Johnny Marr.
