Swooping Is Bad

I'm back from holidays and I've been in a nostalgic mood so here are my 2 favourite Australian bands that I grew up with in the late 90s/2000s.

Powderfinger (Rock, Alt-Rock)
Generally considered to be one of the greatest bands to come out of Australia and a solid contender for some of my favourite music of all time. They're very much my musical comfort food. Here is my favourite track from each one of their albums, in no particular order.

Bonus Track - One of my favourite live performances of all time.


Something for Kate (Alt-Rock, Post-Grunge)
Basically copy and paste what I said about Powderfinger. Paul Dempsey (the lead singer) is one of my favourite musicians and songwriters of all time as well as being an all round lovely bloke. Same deal, favourite song from each album, no order.

Bonus Track - SFK (and Paul Dempsey as an extension) are masters of the cover track, they've done a lot of them and pretty much all of them are great.

Soundtrack for another day stuck at home. ;)

Oh, by the way, the Psychedelic Furs are releasing a new album soon (their first in 29 years!), and their new singles are pretty good.
Here's the latest one:
