A few of you requested my all-australian birthday bash playlist, and as it is rather large instead of writing each artist out I have captured the whole playlist for you below. It is pretty intense, so if you don't have the patience to scroll the whole list I will just mention here that I highly recommend you add the likes of Sarah Aubrey, Angus and Julia Stone, Karma County, The Waifs and Sia as your beginning aperitif list of songs, and then continue with the likes of Blue King Brown and Sneaky Sound System to get your guest's feet tappin'.
To add to this authentic collection it is essential to include a few old faves like Midnight Oil, The Bee Gee's Jive Talkin' (let's not get into a debate about whether they are really aussie or not), and even throw in a Paul Kelly. Include a dash of early nullities one-hit wonders with Lino's Auger Well.
Enjoy this selection - even for those of you non-australians, I think you will find some artists in here that you will completely fall in love with: for modern-day jazz and blues lovers there is the very awesome DIG and The Badloves, and for alternative rock there is good ol' Josh Pyke, Alex Lloyd and Pete Murray - I prefer these guys earlier stuff to be honest, I do feel they lost a bit if their individual style in their later work.
And then, the very number one must have song in your collection? YOTHU YINDI, Treaty! You thought I was going to say Men At Work's Down Under didn't you?! That is in there too, they're all gooooood...
Note: most songs mentioned above are available on the fabo itunes and if not, head straight to the artist's website for purchasing.
