3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Missy Higgins - "Unashamed Desire" (A sultry vulnerability along with honky tonk piano and cowbell highlight the first single from the Australian singer-songwriter's highly-anticipated new album The Ol' Razzle Dazzle out now in the U.S. through Vagrant Records.  After shying away from the music biz since 2007, Missy returns with her most eclectic yet accessible album yet.)


2. Shout Out Out Out Out - "Now That I've Given Up Hope, I Feel Much Better" (The Edmonton-based 6-piece synth-pop band released their third album, Spanish Moss And Total Loss, this week in the U.S. on Normals Welcome Records.  With two drummers, they can create some crazy, poly-rhythmic yet very danceable beats and their vocoder-laced melodies and analog-based music is just as colorful and twisty as the album's artwork.)


3.  Icky Blossoms - "Babe" (The Omaha-based art-pop band featuring Derek Pressnall of Tilly And The Wall and vocalist Sarah Bohling combines deep, bass-heavy grooves with melodic pop moments and dance punk energy on their Dave Sitek-produced self-titled debut album out now on Saddle Creek.)
