In Houston, Matt and I spent much of our courtship attending concerts - mostly of independent artists and the occasional music festival (Austin City Limits! We went together every year we were together until we moved to Australia).
Anyway, given that Matt and I (THE TexStralians) love music so much, I have decided that I will feature some Australian artists on this blog. Some of these artists don't really get a lot of attention outside of Australia (yet) and some are international sensations.
I have to admit, at the moment, I'm not terribly familiar with the Melbourne music scene or Australian music for that matter. But this country has a rich history of popular music and Melbourne's vibrant music scene produces a lot of acts that go on to gain national and or international notoriety. Here goes nothing! We will discover Australian music together.
My first featured artist is Gypsy & The Cat. This group is comprised of two former DJ's from Melbourne. They released their first album in 2010 on the Sony label and this song was a hit off that album. Second album to be released in 2012 on an independent label.
Give a listen to Gypsy & The Cat:
It has a rather dreamy feel. I really dig this song!
