I was blogging consistently in August, but with my comp exam approaching, I’ve been studying non-stop. So here’s to taking a break and focusing on my hobbies.

In recent music trends, what the heck is going on in Australia? There seems to be this creative, underground scene seething with potential, making its way to our ears in the United States. I Shazamed three bands in one week, all of which were from Australia. None of these groups or artists sound the same but many incorporate similar lo-fi, psychedelic sounds of the 60’s mixed with modern instrumentation.

Anyhoo, feel free to give these guys a listen! Tame Impala, Empire of the Sun and Temper Trap have been around for awhile, but otherwise this list is filled with relatively new artists. Each is bound to rock your socks.
