Happy 20th birthday to one of my favourite songs of all time, the very first "alt rock" song I fell in love with, way back in 2001. I was only 11 at the time and didn't really understand the lyrical content, but some part of me knew, and I've resonated it with deeply ever since.

Upon first listen it sounds like a Blinding Lights remake. Once again taking the mainstream route.

it's quite pedestrian, but the fact they released a really good album in Everyday Life in the midst of all this mainstream nonsense is pretty awesome.

Van Morrison has a new album called Latest Record Project Volume 1 that is 130 minutes long, has 28 songs and includes a song called "Why Are You on Facebook"

It’s quite obvious there are two Coldplays trying to please two audiences and I respect them for that. Don’t forget, Ghost Stories was a thing that sat right next to a pretty poppy album.

I like the new Coldplay song because I’m just fine with catchy throwaway pop.

Damn I really should've submitted my Melbourne list to the Mini DI, would've guaranteed myself a decent position in your rankings.

Dammit, you beat me to it. I read that one out loud to Travis this morning, it was making me laugh so hard.

I might as well just post it: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4O...0f81f84a8845a5

It's based on a much longer list, too long even for a full DI, but sequenced very carefully with segments for the different genres/scenes that meant a lot to me while I lived in Melbourne, each separated by an "old" song. This originally just meant "before I moved to Melbourne" but it morphed into "at least 2 decades ago" for various reasons (and is only a 6 year difference anyway).

This short version has trios of "old" songs at the start and finish and then at least one selection from each segment except the punk/post-punk portion, which fell victim to the 80-minute limit and the fact that a planned segue just didn't work as well as I wanted it to.

PS yes I realise a couple of bands here are not typically associated with Melbourne, but they met my criteria of a key member living in the city for a decent length of time.

I knew not to get too excited for what Los Campesinos! were teasing all week (unlike Cobbler).

An EP of Hello Sadness outtakes is about the last thing I'd want to hear from them.

Wake me up when there's a new album.

What I find ridiculous are these stans who often comment on Insta or FB with "Hello Sadness is my favorite LC! album" and I'm just thinking what the fuck is wrong with you?

Sure glad I'm not that miserable.

Even Gareth and Tom know it's their worst.

Nice, will listen. I was very surprised not to see Cable Ties in the short list. They used to live next door to good friends of mine in Coburg.
