A-Z '13 - Love: Western, Let it Go & Lifeblood Flow


During April a bunch of us are participating in the A-to-Z blogging challenge of 2013. My theme this year is an A-to-Z list of classic Aussie tunes - either classic or just plain songs I like. Today's letter is "L" and I had a hard time narrowing it down, as you can see:

Love: Western - Purplene


Let it Go The Black Ryder


Lifeblood Flow Midnight Juggernauts



1) Purplene are were a little-known band from the Eastern States who released two albums (one of which was more like an extended EP). They're defunct but luckily their albums are still accessible via BandCamp. They make beautiful sounds, and "Love: Western" is just a taste. 2) The Black Ryder are a relatively recent discovery for me - I'd heard of them but my first time actually hearing them was when they supported the Cult a few years back. Their sound is dreamy fuzzy magic and I love it. 3) Finally we have a song by Midnight Juggernauts from Melbourne, who, to be honest, I know very little about. I only recently realised that I love this song, but love it I do.
