Have a listen to Liam Finn's Fomo - it's really quite good.

In the interest of opening up B&C a bit more, instead of talking about albums in random and your thoughts get buried, I think there should be more threads. So here's one.

You all know Neil Finn and you should all know Tim Finn. Liam Finn is Neil's son, beg corrects me, and this is his third album. He's good. Eclectic. Folksy. Indie. Multiinstrumentalist. He opened for Pearl Jam.

Fomo (feat of missing out) I listened to just today. I will definitely be buying it. It's a great listen. There's some good harmonies reminiscent of The Beatles and the Beach Boys in places. Short album. 10 tracks.

This is the single:

He's very indie (whatever that means) and I looooved his last album (the one with him jumping up on it?) So I've been quite excited for this album. Quite.

"the uploader has not made this video available in your country."



sounds like it's going to take some more active seeking. i was enjoying my complacency in which tunes just fall into my lap.

I love him live but I didn't care for I'll Be Lightning. Will make a point of listening to this album soon though, everything I've read indicates it's better.

(It better be as good as that Tait set. )

Saw him at The Corner last night. The dude is fucking insane. He may be Neil's son, but he has got all of Tim's eccentricities and then some. They played for about an hour 45, and at one point he was going that hard at everything that they had to go off, because half of their shit had been broken. He has an unbelievable stage presence.

All the Fomo tracks he played were great.

Oh yeah he opened with I'll Be Lightning too. So he's in crisis.

Listening right now. It's quite good.

I was a little skeptical about signing up for Spotify Premium, but now that I've discovered I can stream straight from my iPad to my stereo through AirTunes, this is really a pretty sweet deal.

These are from last night's show. Taken from right next to me. That's Axver and slopsy in front.

The dude can seriously fucking rock. He is a nutter.

God, that performance was mental. Liam is such a performer on stage, a complete madman. Loved it.

And no video needs that much of my head.
