HIGHLY RECOMMENDED W/ COOL SOUNDS

* Providing the A's to the 5 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED Q's today is  Dainis Lacey from    Cool Sounds   — a group of music-makers from Melbourne whose new single ‘Around And Down’ is    out now on Hotel Motel    (and you can find that appropriately named single in the HI54 Mix CD ‘   DOWN UNDER AND OVER’   ) // [photo by  Matthew Templin]

#1 - WHAT IS THE ONE ALBUM (OR EP OR SONG) THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE THE VERY NEXT MUSICAL THING THAT EVERYONE PRESSES PLAY ON THE NEXT TIME THEY FIND THEMSELVES THINKING “WHAT SHOULD I LISTEN TO NOW”?

Faye Webster’s Atlanta Millionaires Club has everything you should be after in an album. Copious amounts of pedal steel, a hint of a Minnesota (Fargo) twinged accent and a blend of R&B and Country only equaled by Lil Nas X.

#2 - WHAT IS THE ONE MOVIE OR TV SHOW THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE NEXT IN EVERYBODY’S NETFLIX QUEUE (OK, DOESN’T HAVE TO BE NETFLIX, WE’RE ALL INTERNET ADULTS HERE AND KNOW HOW TO FIND ANYTHING ONLINE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER)?

On Cinema.

If you can somehow manage to get through the 10 seasons worth of this ridiculous film criticism show you are rewarded with the equally amazing spinoffs Decker and the five hour epic, The Trial of Tim Heidecker.

#3. I (AND BY “I” I MEAN “THE PERSON THAT IS READING THIS”) AM GOING TO THE BOOK STORE (OK, PROBABLY AMAZON) TO FIND THE VERY NEXT BOOK THAT I WILL BE PUTTING SOME EXTREMELY VALUABLE ‘ME-TIME' ASIDE FOR. WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU GET, IF YOU WERE ME (AND, I SUPPOSE, YOU HADN’T ALREADY READ WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO SUGGEST)?

Go and read Maxine Beneba Clarke’s “The Hate Race”. It’s a memoir about growing up Black in Australia, but the author is also a slam poet so it’s written quite different to other memoirs.

It’s still prose but there is something more creative about it, and I think everyone should think more about racism.

#4 - WHAT IS THE ONE WEBSITE (OR JUST ANY OLD INTERNET THING: APP, GIF, SERVICE, WHATEVER) THAT YOU WOULD GET REALLY DOWN IN THE DUMPS ABOUT IF IT WERE TO SUDDENLY GO AWAY?

Miniclip is back I’ve been hearing. 8-ball pool is still king, but golf battle is good too.

#5 - AND FINALLY… PLEASE GIVE ONE COMPLETELY UNAIDED RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD START DOING / USING / WATCHING / EATING / THINKING / QUITING / ETC-ING TO MAKE THEIR LIVES A LITTLE BIT MORE BETTER AND/OR BEARABLE.

I think being silly is pretty underrated.

As long as it’s not annoying anyone it’s a pretty safe bet to make you feel better.


OK folks, there you have it. Things that Cool Sounds thinks you should consider incorporating into your day/life. Before you log off and go be silly in ways that don’t annoy anyone, make sure to follow Cool Sounds on the Facebook / Instagram / Twitter and then also give latest single ‘Around And Down’ a listen below…

…and if you like what you’re hearing, go do some further cool-sounds-flavoured audio exploring over on the Bandcamp / Spotify.
