Aaron Bransdon Ipod Check

Among the interests of many Australians, in addition to kangaroo rodeos, shrimp on the barbie, and cussing, includes music. Aaron Bransdon, NSW, is no different. Aaron describes his taste in music as, "Everything and anything." Looking through his Ipod check seems to confirm this statement. Below is a list of the first 10 songs appearing on Aaron's Ipod when turned to shuffle.

Daddy Cool : Placebo - One of the rare, old school songs that would always be on the radio in the car when i was younger, almost one of those "grown up with this song"

Such Great Heights : The Postal Service - A song i have as a result from a brief Death Cab for Cutie infatuation. Turns out i used it for the South Coast '08 edit, first time i rode with Geordie Mac :)

Sweet Disposition : The Temper Trap - One of the newest bands i've started to listen to, extremely chill, Australian band. Everyone give them a listen, they're win.
Our last days of Children : Explosions in the sky - What's an ipod with quality instrumental music? Usually do homework, write, think, whatever listening to this music, always helps calm and ease me after whatever.

Float On - Modest Mouse : This song is pretty monumental really, my first foray into a band suggested to me in the SR music section, they really are quality.

In the water I am beautiful - City and Colour : Possibly my favorite solo act, Dallas Green, he is usually the lead singer for Alexisonfire, a hardcore (?) band, but this acoustic side project proves Genre crossing can be done, and done well.

Pressure - Lupe Fiasco ft. Jay-z : My favorite song presently, Lupe fiasco is a lyrical genius, and flows like nothing else. I've never seen anything in Jay-z, but i'm starting to grow accustomed to his style.

Mr Brightside - The Killers : A long time favorite of mine, love how easy this song is to sing along to.

Send me a postcard Darling - The shocking blue : This song essentially shows my love for European riding. Featured in Siign i believe, one of the greatest feature length videos released.

Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi ft. MGMT and ratatat : The greatest song left til last i guess. How you could get a better combination of artists into one song, i have no idea. Kid Cudi's flow, MGMT's harmony on top of a Ratatat beat, never ceases to amaze.
