[MP3/STREAM] Big Scary – “Autumn” & “Mix Tape”

i’m just bored, i don’t know what to do with my love

♫ Big Scary – Autumn

  • Who: Tom (b0y) & Jo (girl)
  • What: Indie piano hooks, like Lady Danville, Jukebox The Ghost, Shout Out Louds,
  • Where: Melbourne, Australia + Facebook / Soundcloud / Bandcamp / Amazon
  • When: Self titled LP is out in Australia. The rest of us wait.
  • Why: Add another band to the list of Great Music Australians Have Been Enjoying For A While But We Are Just Discovering. “Autumn” is the kind of music you want to have picnic related adventures to but is still weighted by a heartfelt feeling that gives the song staying power. “Mix Tape” is a great example of Big Scary’s skill at big swinging indie-pop jams that weave their way under your skin and have you bobbing along right out of the box. You know I’ll be doing some heavy bobbing during their set at The Burning Ear showcase at SXSW! Sweetness.
