So many excellent Australian artists have come to light in the U.S. during recent years. Melbourne’s independent music scene in particular has an incredible reputation and I have no reason for doubt — it produced who I think is the world’s greatest lyricist.
I admittedly know very little of Australia natives The Babe Rainbow or their self-titled debut record that came out September 1. But a killer groove like that in today’s featured song — “Peace Blossom Boogy” — is made for dancing, not researching. It’s a wonderfully-loose, 1960s-inspired earworm complete with shalala-ing back-up singers.
