Early August Treats!

August already?! That means it’s my Birthday soon… another year older, scary! Anyway, I have some treats for you – just some tracks I’ve been digging recently, either heard on the radio, stumbled across, or found via other peeps on the world wide web.

First up is a track by the Brisbane trio The Grates. I first heard this track on Triple J radio a month or so ago, but as ever it was one of those tracks I heard but never grabbed the name of. Very frustrating. But, I now know the name, and here it is in all its glory…

Next up is a track I mentioned the other week. A bunch of elementary school kids from Maryland, along with a high school teacher – rap rap rapping under the name Rappers Delight Club. Cute little buggers have skills. Check it…

This next track by the Dutch band Voicst took a while to grow on me. Instantly something about it grabbed me, but I wasn’t sure what, but after a few listens it started to sink in. There’s a good energy to the track and definitely worth putting on if you fancy rocking out for a few minutes – plus their album has literally just dropped in the US, so give it a whirl…

I mentioned the other week details about the new dub version of Radiohead’s OK Computer by the Easy Star All-Stars, entitled Radiodread. Well, I’ve heard a couple of the songs and they are sounding really great. Here’s one of them…
