The Triangles

November 26th, 2005 | music

The Triangles are the new Polyphonic Spree. Only they’re Australian, there’s only five of them, and they don’t sound all that much like the Polyphonic Spree. But you know what I mean, right? Listen to “Applejack.” Then read the lyrics, because it’s not often you hear the words “lungfish” or “mitochondria” in a song.

And if you don’t understand the line “Sing a song/About how things seem more important at night”… forget it. You won’t get it.

Tell Me I Didn’t Just See This

This trailer here. Tell me I didn’t just see it. Tell me I did not just see a trailer for a movie that is I swear to god CHARLIE’S ANGELS meets HERO by the director of THE TRANSPORTER, featuring, apparently, Holly Valance putting on her bra via kung-fu.
