Definitely on the rockier side of a Sunday morning, here's Aussie 'Spookyland' with a corker of a tune and a great video to accompany it. Big shades of Brit Pop and in a good way too, think Cast and you'll see where I'm going with this. It's a real get up and go tune, which is just as well because I have things to do!

My favourite ever disco tune is perfect for a Sunday morning. Sheila Ferguson's voice...oh boy! Heavenly.

This blast from the past is a bit of a collector's item.

Now this is what I'm talking about. My favourite Billy Idol track covered by Vancouver's Terror Bird who had one of my albums of the year a few years back. Her sparse 80s-inspired lo-fi electro-pop pushes every one of my buttons. Beautiful stuff.
He's back....I've had a listen of the new album and it's top notch. Once again, biting lyrics, female harmonies and the gravel voice. The inimitable Cohen voice. I particularly like the use of the Arabesque backing singer. Apparently it's Madonna's old backing singer Donna De Lory; she sounds great.

Now here's some folk-y music for you. Ostensibly a band but this is the stage-name for Joel Thobideau who hails from Rhode Island. I did some background reading on him and it came as no surprise to see that he's toured with Jónsi, the sounds are certainly similar.
Their first album was a must-have but up until 2014 I hadn't heard or seen much of them so it was lovely to see a new album out and a good 'un it is too. It seems more of a classic pop album rather than their previous folk-y output but don't let that detract you. It's all good, buddy.
