[INTRODUCING] THIRSTY THURSDAY WITH PEAR SHAPE

[INTRODUCING] THIRSTY THURSDAY WITH PEAR SHAPE

I should really start calling the Thirsty Thursday posts "What's Big Down Under" since almost every week I'm writing about awesome indie bands from Australia. So this week, raise your glasses full of Carlton to our Thirsty Thursday act, Pear Shape! The Sydney, Australia-based quartet is comprised of Tom Riordan, Josh Bush, Jack Ellwood and Tim Ellwood. They describe their sound as "fruit pop" (already sounds delicious) with influences including The Beatles, Blur, The Strokes and Vampire Weekend. I really like their Brit-pop/garage/indie and electronic sound but of course with that Australian summery feel.  I featured their recent track "Carousel" in yesterday's Hump Day Mix as I thought it would eventually make its way to Summer Jamz 2013: Daytime Disco mix. There's definitely this feel good/light quality to their work that makes listening to their music unconditionally enjoyable. Be sure to check out their latest track "Carousel" and head to Triple J Unearthed to download their songs for free!

[WATCH] TUESDAY TUNES DAY WITH THE LONELY ISLAND FT. ROBYN, SEAN COMBS & PAUL RUDD

[WATCH] TUESDAY TUNES DAY WITH THE LONELY ISLAND FT. ROBYN, SEAN COMBS & PAUL RUDD

The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone) teamed up with Robyn and guest appearances by Sean Combs, Paul Rudd and even Sarah Chalke in their latest music video offering "Go Kindergarten" that premiered today. It's kind of true that people will do what you tell them to do as long as you say it in a song with a good catchy beat. That would explain why P. Diddy and P. Ruddy were eating out of the garage, walking on broken glass and punching the crap out of each other. Sounds insane? Watch it now!

The Wack Album is available now!
