i decided that to be a hardcore fan of an artiste is to at least like 95% of the songs in their albums. that's my point of view and if it's not yours, well, i can't do anything about it, can i? anyway, besides duo set Daft Punk, i've found another favourite somewhere last year (i totally forgot how i came across them). the first song that made me addicted was 'Kitty In The Middle' because of the beat which reminds me of rave-goth (owh. sue me), sounds like deep-minimal-electro where i imagine two girls in sexy cat costumes purring around the pole (future boyfriend, get a pole in the bedroom and i can show you the moves). anyway, i searched the internet about The Presets and i fell in love with a couple of other songs. later, lucky me, a friend gave me both of their albums; Beams (2005) and Apocalypso (2008) and i'm now very much obsessed with this duo. hailing from the land down under, Julian and Kim met when they were studying music in Sydney back in the 90's. they started off as Prop then The Presets when they decided they wanted to do something electronic. my current favourite tunes are 'Girl And The Sea', 'If I Know You', 'Talk Like That' (both original & remix by CFCF) and 'This Boy's In Love' (both original & remix by Life Like).
Girl and the Sea Tonight the Tonight the hills are watching her as she runs towards the sea yeah she runs so she be free And of all the friends and enemies shes made along the way they are no where in her thoughts as she dives beneath the waves
And he's the one that you've seen sometimes on tv and his shirt is on the ground while he's tackled by police and the parcel that he throws across the bridge into the creek it'll flow towards the sea it will meet with her tomorrow
No place some time we'll clear our eyes and when you're down i'll come around
And all the places shes been along the way flames are licken at their walls night glows with their remains
From far away the animals come gather round to see but she knows not how they feel and she knows not what it means
When she was young we'd ask her what she'd like to be and she'd close her eyes and dream...
...now we're no where in her thoughts as she dives beneath the waves A place I've found could be all ours but I've seen where you would rather be
owh. i missed the part where they won a couple of awards at ARIA 2008 plus they followed Daft Punk on tour. need i say more?!!
