The kites can't jive playlist
“I like music” was a key part of my personality in my late teens and early twenties. I’m not proud of that but it’s true. I’ve grown out of a lot of the follies of my youth but one thing remains: I listen to a lot of music.
This is the stuff I’m digging in 2023.
- Stained glass by Alien Nosejob. Alien Nosejob are a classic of the Melbourne punk scene I had, somehow, missed for years.
- Double tubble by Hot Tubs Time Machine. Absolutely filthy Melbourne rock that might be totally inscrutable to anyone who doesn’t live here. (One song is literally just a meditation on what it’d be like to work at an iconic bakery in Melbourne’s northen suburbs.)
- Boiler Room: Fred again.. by Fred Again… I’m six months late to this but, goddamn, what an incredible set. (It’s actually a better watch than listen, which is rare for DJ sets.)
