Song of the day: The Nines – "That Takes Time"

May 29, 2013

I’m still writing the Leviathan of a post that will (hopefully) appear on this blog soon, so I’ll have to whack something up here without much thought. (As in: “Quick, Peter! Think of a song to go on the blog!”)

Consulting Miyuki Kimura‘s magnificent and eminently helpful “If you love Jellyfish, you might like these artists/bands LIST 🙂” list, I’ll have a quick look at what’s there…

OK. The Nines is on the list. I like The Nines.

Thanks for putting The Nines on your list, Miyuki.

Now, back to writing the mammoth post.

Song of the day: The Nines – "Drama Queen"

July 25, 2012

I’ve been tidying up some old posts on this here blog (due to outdated or non-working links), and I spotted a band I haven’t played you in ages. So…

The Nines – “Drama Queen” (2008)

Splendid.

The Nines are a Canadian band, and that song appears on the eminently buyable Calling Distance Stations.

Song of the day: The Nines – "Take What You Want"

April 11, 2010

The answer to yesterday’s question is:

Yes.

To expand on that unhelpfully concise answer, here are a few songs by Canadian melody maestro Steve Eggers, a man with more melodic talent than he has a right to:

The Nines – “Take What You Want” (2006)

and

The Nines – “Darkening Sky” (2006)

Link

and

The Nines – “Mary Jane” (2006)

Link

and

The Nines – “That Takes Time” (2006)

Thank you, Mr Eggers, for writing those tunes.

By the way, they all appear on the one album: Calling Distance Stations (2006).

I was going to rave about The Nines but realised that I don’t need to at all – My Hmphs has done it for me. My Hmphs has a lot of love for The Nines and isn’t shy about showing it.

Song of the day: The Nines – "Hard Luck"

June 17, 2009

Today’s song is non-Australian but I’m playing it anyway because, well, because it’s a great song.

It’s “Hard Luck,” a piece of power pop goodness from Canadian band The Nines:

“Hard Luck” comes from their third album, Calling Distance Stations (2006).

Honestly, if you haven’t heard The Nines (and I’m guessing most Australians haven’t) you’re missing out on a whole heap o’ wonderfulness.
