New Music

Blood Music - MDK Cartel

My first taste of grime, and it's not that bad. It's probably got a lot to do with the superb choice of sample.

Crazy 4 Ya - Sona Family

More from the Sona Family; just as fun as glassy but different enough to make it a tune in its own right. They manage to get the mix of Hindi, Arabic and English down to a tee. Ya habibi!

How To Save A Life - The Fray

The first of four choices heavily influenced by 97.3 Brisbane, the ever changing tempo here reminds me of Lifehouse, and to an extent, The Calling. Which isn't a bad thing at all now is it?

Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

Yes it's old. But it's new to me so... A bit of an anthem, so I hope I don't sway too much on The Tube.

Little Wonders - Rob Thomas

Nothing too sophisticated or even original here, but solid enough to make my playlist.

Makes Me Wonder - Maroon 5

I didn't even realise that this was a Maroon 5 track till I looked it up. It wasn't too recognisable (well, certainly not to me) which is a good thing since I felt the band might have just been cashing in on a gimmicky sound. Then again, listening to it as I type makes me think how it could be anyone but Maroon 5. Go figure.

Stronger - Kanye West

Despite thinking that his music is pretty good and a refreshing change from the normal hip hop currently has to offer, this is the first Kanye track to make my playlist. Not sure why this tipped me over the edge, but there's something slightly edgy about this track that drew me more than the others.
