Other music we're enjoying this month...
"Little Fang" by Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks is an infectious pop song and we can't get enough of it. Cute clip too!
If you're a Kim Deal fan, we highly recommend you check out her new track in collaboration with Morgan Nagler. It's called "The Root". Listen here.
We're big fans of the new track by Melbourne's Second Hand Heart. Watch the clip for "Spending My Time" here.
We're loving the new track by hip hop producer Chasm, featuring Blak Twang, Ozi Batla and Hau. Check out the video here.
