Over the weekend I went on a photo editing spree and to keep me motivated I put together a little playlist of sweet songs. These jams are so chill, so smooth, I thought: “what’s music for - if not sharing?” So here you go guys. Enjoy a chilled out start to your week :)

Last week I attempted to make a list of  my 20 favourite songs from the past 20 years for a local radio station’s music vote. Trying to narrow down songs from the past 20 years with only 20 positions to fill was harder than it sounds! I tried to stick with songs that I had heard on the radio station in question, otherwise my list started getting out of control. So much so, that I actually ended up with a few differently ‘themed’ lists!

Here’s what I narrowed my list down to; a bit of everything, but mainly a collection of my favourite indie tracks ( I avoided my 90′s pop phase for this list ;) ) What do you think? Did any favourites of yours make my list?

I had forgotten about this song by San Cisco, but today when it came in at number 7 in Triple J’s yearly Hottest 100 count down I was reminded of how adorable it is… even for a song about stalking someone… This band is so young, it’s great they’ve gotten so popular.

Just in case you haven’t seen this plastered all over the internets. Gotye is (deservedly) a pretty big deal in Australia, and this cover of his song ‘Somebody, That I Used to Know’ by Walk Off The Earth is simply superb. (If you’re not familiar with the song, see the original here)
