It's Wake Up, Arcade Fire's set opener at Enmore (only recorded properly by Triple J). It was to promote the fact that the whole show will be played on ABC2 tonight at 10pm. (Note well, music fans).

I was already pretty much in love with Soko after "I'll keel 'eur" but this ukelele song on the radio struck me as so beautiful my heart became dandelion fluff.

It's Wide Open Road, The Triffids

Sometimes I love Triple J.
