Absolutely loving these guys at the moment — even more so after their scintillating live show in Camden last night. Of Monsters and Men are musical geniuses (genii?), something akin to Arcade Fire with piano accordian, trumpet and timpani action aplenty. I see they're doing a fair bit of touring around Europe in t...

I love this funky app designed by Brisbane creative agency Josephmark. Self described 'It's, like, totally the coolest music app...so you've probably never heard of it."

What makes this app really co...
