I've been wanting to cast a vote in the APRA (Australian Performing Rights Association) Song of the Year contest for a while. I don't often listen to new music these days so it's refreshing to get back into it.
First off I just have to say, with music, I'm generally not dismissive or unnecessarily critical. But I had one vote to cast and I wanted to make it count… so you kind of have to go for flaws, it makes the choice easier. I liked a lot of the songs!! Moreover I don't know some of these artists at all so I chose to listen to the ones I knew or thought I'd like. This could be deemed unfair and it is, but I just couldn't be bothered listening to them all. Given the amount of listening and thinking I was doing anyway, I decided to make it a review.... I hope you enjoy.
The Drones - A Moat You Can Stand In - didn't listenEmpire of the Sun
- Alive - good hook, chorus has some interesting chords near the end. Probably not my first choice. …
