Brisbane, Australia has been subjected to its fair share of ridicule....
For years we've worn the brunt of shit slinging from the southern states, regarding art, food and culture.
But in my opinion, we not only have the sunshine, but we also incubate some of Australia's finest music - The Saints, Go-Between's and Powderfinger - to name a few....
Joining the ranks of Brissy's indie royalty is "Box Falcon" with their debut single "Deep Slide Blues"
It's been difficult to select a track of the week with an equally brilliant B side "Poor Boy" with its driving momentum and catchy chord arrangement.
Though, Deep Slide Blues is a hands down favourite of mine - showcasing traditional blues elements, clever changes and killer whiskey drenched vocals. Keep your ear to the ground for the dirty street noise in the intro, it adds such a cool touch to the streetwise gal and her underground habits surrounding the track.
