I really couldn’t figure out which one to post today, so I figured I would just post them all!

(look! he’s in a laundromat!)

1. The Stress of Leisure

I’m surprised I haven’t heard of these guys (or just one guy maybe?) before. Surprised and ashamed. The band is led by local musician Ian Powne, and I’m not quite sure how to pinpoint the style. I’d throw it into the general ‘indie’ bin of course but that really doesn’t do it justice. Check it out.  Seriously.

2. The Boat People

The Boat People have been around for ages. Shame on you if you’re from Brisbane and don’t know who they are. I was excited to find in my Facebook feed this morning that they have a new music video out for their song ‘Soporific’ from their upcoming album. I’m always a fan of Boaties video clips (why oh why didn’t I mention these in my Sunday thoughts!)

3. How to Destroy Angels

Trent Reznor finally has a new project. If you haven’t heard about it yet, it’s called How to Destroy Angels, an electronic/light indstrustiral act with his wife Mariqueen Maandig. It’s all still a little mysterious, but Pitchfork have uploaded the first single, so I definitely recommend you have a listen. But don’t listen expecting another Nine Inch Nails. It’s very different.
