    Dazzle Me This – She & Him Strike Again

    Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward are back my friends, back as She & Him with another whimsical, folk-pop musical collaboration aptly titled Volume Two (their first release together in 2008 was, if you missed it, Volume One).

    Dazzle Me This – Laura Times Four

    Last week, while I was meant to be writing this column, I was in fact suffering from an acute case of writer’s block. WB is not some sneaky little condition that we wordsmiths make up in order to get out of our daily tasks.

    Dazzle Me This – The Consequence Of Being Jack Carty

    So I might be a little slow off the mark with this one, but having just got my hands on the latest EP from Sydney based singer-songwriter Jack Carty, Wine & Consequence, I felt compelled to direct your ears towards some sweet, sleepy tunes from this charming troubadour.

    Dazzle Me This – Boy Pops Up Outside

    Dear everyone, my name is Katie Dazzle and I love country music. Even writing that down in a sentence, just right now, I’m getting a little shock at my own bold statement, but I really don’t see why.

    Dazzle Me This – Odd Blood Nuts

    My new apartment building is called Brooklyn, and it is radical. So radical, my real estate agent is even called ‘Rad’, for reals. Yeasayer are also from Brooklyn, and last week, with a sigh of serendipity and a cup of tea, I settled in for repeated listens to their new album, Odd Blood.

    Dazzle Me This – Throwing Stones

    Well wouldn’t this have been a lovely addition to the last Fanfare mini-mix? But then again, I think it’s also highly deserving of it’s very own dazzling spotlight.

    Dazzle Me This – Fanfarlo & Fanfare

    Fanfarlo – It’s a bit of an odd name to both write and say aloud. It doesn’t quite seem to roll off the tongue or even look right to my eyes. There’s nothing odd about their debut album Reservoir though, it’s simply 40 minutes of pure, glorious, London via Sweden indie pop.

    Dazzle Me This #13 – Broderick’s Four Track Songs

    Hello campers! Another week down and it’s been all Halloween, horses and heartache for Katie Dazzle. But heartache of the loveliest kind. My ears have been lucky enough to be privy to the early lo-fi treats of Peter Broderick on his new Type Records release 4 Track Songs.

    Dazzle Me This #12 – Kiss Kiss

    What’s been playing on my stereo all week? That would be the smooth as introspective silk sounds of UK four piece The xx. It’s all punchy and plucky guitar flecks on the bottom, floated by the moody dual male and female vocal stylings of Oliver Sim and Romy Madley Croft.

    Dazzle Me This #11 – Mumford, Sons & Laneways

    A few weeks ago I praised the folk-tinged, heart-crunching goodness of Mumford And Sons and their single Little Lion Man. You would recall that I was hanging out for my ears to be rewarded with the entire album, Sigh No More, and even though every man and his plaid shirt wearing dog is now on

    Dazzle Me This # 9 – Garden Squared

    Croquet and Pimms and music, oh my! Last Sunday saw the perfectly manicured lawns of Government House turn into a playing field for some killer Aussie music and plenty of outdoor fun, otherwise known as Garden Music.
