Awesomest Music Video Ever!

Cut Copy - Need You Now

Here’s why I think this video may officially be the bees knees: –

  1. The hockey-player looks like porn-legend Ron Jeremy and he plays tennis with a soccer ball.
  2. The swimmer looks like Wayne Ferreira who hijacked Ninja’s Speedo.
  3. I’m pretty sure at 0:57 that’s a Nissan 1400 bakkie nearly running the band over.
  4. The lead-singer has a non-ironic moustache.
  5. The keyboard player has glowing red eyes.
  6. Smoke, fire, machetes & axes… it’s like an IFP rally in there.
  7. It all descends into madness last saw in that classic scene between the news teams in Anchorman.
  8. Fencing mask off, gum-guard out female athletes kissing.

To be perfectly honest, the only reason I can find not to like this band is that they’re from Australia, but so is Olivia Newton-John, Tame Impala, The Avalanches and Nick Cave originally, and they’re all pretty awesome.

The Swedish Kids are Cool

My favorite singers of last year were über pop-chanteuse Robyn and Kristian Matsson aka The Tallest Man on Earth. The latter’s amazing songwriting prowess and Dylan-channeling vocals were always gonna hit the spot for me. The former reduced me to a dirty ol’ geezer with her air-punching dance moves and general quirky Swedishness. Here’s a link to the video if you’ve had your head buried in the sand for the last year.

Anyway, there’s a new kid on the block. Her name is Lykke Li and I’ve had her sophomore album Wounded Rhymes on heavy rotation for the last week or two. It’s a great pop album and she has enough of that quirky/sassy Swedishness to ensure it resonates well beyond its borders of origin. Watch the superb video for “Get Some” below.
