Post-A-Day Week: It’s not often over a weekend that I’ll be sent enough songs to make up a week of posts. So, this week, I’ve decided to put up a post a day, as opposed to lumping them all into one confusing mess, as I am wont to do.

Faker - This Heart Attack

Showing some love for the Aussie bands, “This Heart Attack by Faker is a ridiculously catchy single from their latest album, “Be The Twilight” (2007).

And the fact that’s catchy as all hell certainly won’t hurt with that.

There’s something intense in lead singer Nathan Hudson’s delivery here, yet at the same time apathetic. It’s an intriguing combination, and if you haven’t heard this track yet, click the damn play button below already!

    Hmmmm….

    Yes very good call with this new track Burgo!

    I saw these guys at BDO GC 2008, and they were absolutely rockin! The lead singer has a level of intensity that keeps you captivated…

    Prob my 3rd fav act of the day behind Rage and the Gurge (yes… i know … ) I thought the Chair sucked – perhaps not a good idea to tour straight after a split from the wife (so melincolin)

    Spleep
