Ups And Downs - The Living Kind EP

You'll know a band is truly underground when you can't even find their infos in Wikipedia or Google search result for that matter. I did able to find bits from their Myspace page. These lads are from Brisbane, Australia and Aussies got their share of legit indiepop bands with Hummingbirds and The Lucksmiths to name a few. If you're a sucker for jangly pop guitar this is a definite must hear.

Blow Up - World EP

I've posted the Blow Up's debut single Good For Me some time in the early part of my postings and because I've acquired two more of their later singles I've decided to repost it again along with the new ones. This is one of the Creation Records' group that didn't make it to the limelight but made a significant contribution to the label and indiepop scene.

This Picture - Naked Rain EP

Finally Apple come up with this new Retina display technology that means there would be a drastic markdown on their slightly older version of MacBook Pro. Who needs a Retina display, I'm no graphic artist. As long as its quad core i7, not only it will get the job done but I will save myself a grand! To cut the long story short, I got the non-Retina one for myself and it works like a charm.

This post brings you 20 something years back, during the time when KROQ used to be cool. Some of you might recognize the song if you were listening to 106.7fm back in the early 90s. The first time I've heard it I thought it was U2. This is one of the 90s songs that's worth remembering about.
