Royal Headache - High

Stumbling upon an Australian band can really make a guy second guess the music that he's used to from a certain continent. The usual suspects tend to be stuck forever in our minds as the one-hit-wonder bands of the 1980's.

Royal Headache, on the other hand, seems to have what us yanks don't search for on purpose, but happily stumble upon by accident. Once the earworm of a perfect brit-pop song hits us, it's close to impossible for us to shake. This album, High, has the pop sensibilities that Americans loved about Oasis, Blur, and Pulp while maintaining the steady simplicity of 70's acts like The Damned, Gang of Four, and especially Wire.

The vocals have the certain throwback perfection of the previously mentioned bands with an at times Paul Weller delivery, sounding like a modern Australian document without standing as the only interest. The barely-there crunch of boosted clean channel Fender guitars back up Tim "Shogun" Wall's bouncing-up-and-down vocal delivery perfectly on High, and ensures that the record doesn't dissolve into something resembling The Strokes.

Hailing from Sydney, the band really doesn't have much of an internet presence. I'm not sure if these fellas are still even an act, but I felt that I had to share this incredible record. Do yourself a favor and blast this record on repeat.

I have just started using garageband on my iPhone, it’s a complete package of amazing instruments and recorded tunes. I am not a learned musician or an artist, i just love creating music in my free time. GarageBand lets me enjoy my own music on my phone, I can save it and share it with others easily.

The Cardinals lost key safeties Tony Jefferson and D.J. Swearinger cheap jerseys wholesale in free agency a year ago but didn’t skip a beat. Bethea proved to be a nice signing in free agency as he finished with a team-best five interceptions, and Baker was a great second-round find in the draft.NIKE NFL Ford was a key special teams player as a rookie and hopes to find an increased role in 2018. Miller could again battle for a roster spot.

NFL Sunglasses He said last week that the Cardinals asked him to take a pay cut,Oakland Raiders Jersey and it is unclear whether he is willing to do so. A resolution will need to come by Wednesday, when a chunk of money in Mathieu’s contract becomes guaranteed.
“I think, obviously, in the next week or so we’ll have to make a decision,” Mathieu said on Saturday. “We’ll all know exactly what’s going on.” (UPDATE: Mathieu was released on Wednesday.)
Branch, the lone safety scheduled to hit free agency, played extremely well for nine games but tore his ACL against the Seahawks. Green Bay Packers Jersey Branch proved in 2017 he could still perform at a high level, but has only played in 36 games the past five years and will be 32 years old next season.
The Cardinals relied heavily on three safeties Philadelphia Eagles Jersey the past several years and defensive backs coach David Merritt said that will likely be the case again in 2018. The group as currently constructed is one of the most talented positions on the team.
