Hated BSS until I saw them live, so there is that.

Not sure how one could even think of judging BSS before hearing You Forgot It In People.

It's pretty damned different from the self-titled and FRR.

I'd say just listen to Ibi Dreams of Pavement. If you don't like that you probably wont like them. That and World Sick got me into them.

Does anyone not like Ibi?

Listen to Illinois, if you're trying to get into Sufjan. Trust that.

Speaking of extremely overrated Australian bands, here's the latest one (and song) doing the rounds (aka "OMGGGGG <3<3<3")

San Cisco - Awkward - YouTube

More boring-ass folk/pop. It doesn't end with Boy & Bear, it merely begins with them.

I'd like to add that I'm pretty fucking ambivalent about this 'Unearthed' project, now ramped up to permanent-station-status. What are the odds that a lot of these highschool kids dragged out from under their rocks are about a decade off creative maturity (if indeed that is their destiny at all)? What the fuck do 17 year olds know about anything? I'm 34 and I know nothing!

Still, props to TripleJ for picking a good senior artist to bury alive this year. Nick Cave, on the evidence of 2008's Dig Lazarus Dig!! pounds these kids into the ground. It's a shame they couldn't get Angus & Julia Stone on board, to maybe take a crack at The Mercy Seat or As I Sat Sadly By Her Side or something.

I hate unearthed. Great opportunity for the bands involved, but I couldn't give a remote shit about any of the bands. If they are half decent (Big Scary) then they'll become successful in their own right and I'll discover them then.

That's the thing.

Plus, the previous track record is not great, in my view:

Grinspoon - rubbish
Silverchair - rubbish (wait, maybe they weren't 'unearthed)
Missy Higgins - rubbish

I can't wait to vote in the Hottest 100, I will admit.

I am fucking dreading Australia Day though (the Hottest 100 being just one reason)

I'm terrified of Australia Day.

Don't leave the house anymore.

Not unless you have Aussie flag board shorts, Aussie flag thongs, Aussie flag knock-off ray bans, an Aussie flag drawn on your stomach and an Aussie flag on your back.

Now let's go bash a leb to show how proud we are!

This "Unearthed" station doesn't actually do anything for artists. It's a massive wank. Yes, an "unearthed" artist gets played on the radio, but so do another 300 bands everyday.
