Slow Violence – 'Kidz'

A nice blend of dissonance and dream pop. Somehow Slow Violence make every sound seem frail and fragile and ever so breakable. When the song starts to settle in, it changes completely. Then it's over. Short but beautiful – definitely worth a listen.

Orlando Furious – 'Nu Body':

Lo-fi off beat white boy R&B is definitely a thing that is happening now.  Seriously. Footscray's answer to Serge Gainbourg, Orlando Furious, does it better than most. 'Nu Body' is his bizarre transsexual love song, with its tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Thee Oh Sees – 'Penetrating Eye':

There are two types of people in the world: people who like Thee Oh Sees and people who are wrong. This Oh Sees song is like others in so much that it has Dwyer's piercing vocals cutting through killer guitar riffs and different in that it has a 45 second synth intro and decidedly heavier guitars throughout.

Shakira Feat. Rihanna - 'Can't Remember To Forget You':

This is a hot mess. In fact, I reckon if you look up the phrase “hot mess” on Wikipedia, a still from this video would come up. There are no redeemable features to this song. None. Ultimately it is three minutes and 30-odd seconds of your life that you won't get back and another 20-odd seconds reading this review about it.
