New Songs on a Saturday Morning (401-420)

As part of my ongoing effort to improve the range of my cultural consumption, I'm casting out for new things to listen to. Part one and an explanation of this musical escapade can be found here. You'll need to search for the rest yourselves.

401. Dragonette - 'Let It Go' - A little Nelly Furtado but with more dance and less attitude.
402. Miike Snow - 'Paddling Out' - what the hell is going on with that film clip? 
403. Nelly Furtado - 'Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)' - The actual Nelly with just the right amount of kook.
404. Def Wish Cast - 'Forever' - B-boys and hip-hop from the Western Suburbs of Sydney. Strangely appropo but the accent always rolls me.
405. Olly Murs - 'Dance With Me Tonight' - Sweet and cheery. 
406. Tim Stokes - 'Ride On' - more Australian accents. A little bit country; a little bit surfing folk rock.
407. The Salvadors - 'Merrily' - Love me a little xylophone. Loving the marching snare drum.
408. Kindness - 'House' - The spoken intro on pop music and the lesson building the song is great.
409. John Mayer - 'Shadow Days' - This Montana vibe suits him.
410. Florence and the Machine - 'Spectrum'.
411. Silversun Pickups - 'Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)' - Love this guy's voice.
412. Bill Wyman - 'Je Suis Un Rockstar' - uhhh. Should never have tried it solo.
413. Aneka - 'Japanese Boy' - I'm sure there's something vaguely racist about this.
414. Dawes - 'Time Spent in Los Angeles' - Love, love, love.
415. Dawes - 'Love is All I Am' - 
416. Dawes - 'Take Me Out of the City'.
417. Dawes with Mumford & Sons - 'When My Time Comes' - Fabulous.
418. Mumford & Sons (Live) - 'Lover's Eyes'. 
419. Mumford & Sons - 'England'.
420.Bon Iver - 'I Can't Make You Love Me/ Nick of Time' - Such lovely piano.
