Were you aware of the fact that there are around 4 million songs on Spotify that have never been played?! Forgotify has been created to reduce that number and introduce people to a huge library of music that’s never ever been streamed. It’s like a musical lucky dip as to what you might get when clicking play through their website, we got a nice little dub tune first up followed by a Salsoul joint and then a horrible death metal number. Head over to their site and give someone their first royalty cheque for $0.007… you never know what you might discover, it could be the best/worst song you’ve ever heard!
Caribou @ Webster Hall NYC
In somewhat of a throwback to the #DeepHouse of the early 2000’s, some of our fave Canadians Caribou tore up the East Village’s Webster Hall last week as the Fall air turned wintery in New York. Caribou have slotted right back into popularity since the release of Our Love earlier this year, post four-year hiatus, riding off the success of their previous album, Swim, playing two sold-out and highly coveted shows at Webster Hall, with ticket scalpers asking 4 times the ticket cost. Support act & featured artist on the latest album, Jessy Lanza melted the crowd with her soft, feminine vocals when she appeared in ultra fem/girl-next-door attire for Second Chance, but the pace quickly picked up again for tracks like All I Ever Need, which featured a heavy dance-finish, and the title track off this year’s album, Our Love which got appropriately deep. Featuring all the latest hits from Our Love, the set wouldn’t have been complete without making the noisy crowd wait for the bangers Odessa & Sun from Swim, which both had Webster Hall jumping and begging for more. Or was that, more deep-house, less EDM? For a taste of the beautiful light-show (not so much for the sound), check out this video of Caribou performing ‘Back Home’ at Webster Hall. -Leilani Williams
Throwback Thursday - In Their Shoes
In this week’s edition of throwback Thursday we turn the clock back a year and a bit to that time we joined forces with Converse and a whole bunch of rad musicians in order to raise some dollar bills for The National Breast Cancer Foundation. We got an all-star lineup of our favourite acts to donate their time and art skills to creating a one off pair of custom designed Chuck Taylor All-Star Converse kicks. Checkout a stack of our faves below and head over to our Facebook page to check the full gallery.

From Where We'd Rather Be.
Cool Accidents faves Portugal. The Man are currently in the midst of an Australian tour which has been kindly brought to us by the good people at Corona as part of their From Where You’d Rather Be series. Basically John, Zach, Kyle & Jason have been living the dream in this fine country of ours, playing gigs in all the best spots, drinking copious amounts of booze and just generally getting turnt up down under… so the whole From Where You’d Rather Be thing is pretty much BANG ON. Now although we can’t be there for the whole trip (check HERE for the remaining dates) we can be with them in spirit thanks to a rad playlist they’ve put together of all the jams they’ve been listening to before and after every show. As you’d expect from a group of guys that make the kind of music they do, the list is an all killer no filler eclectic selection of tunes from artists such as Tame Impala, Grouplove, Mac Demarco, Outkast, Depeche Mode, Beastie Boys, Kurt Vile, Death From Above 1979, alt-j, The War On Drugs, Ice Cube, The Rolling Stones and a bunch more.

Who Wore It Better?
One morning Allday woke up and thought to himself “I’m going to wear an old ladies’ sun hat in my next video”, so that’s exactly what he did in the video for his latest single Wolves. We did a little digging around and think we might’ve found his source of inspiration for the Wolves wardrobe selection. Allday’s Startup Cult album is available now where all top shelf records are sold | streamed.
Lennon & Lorde 'Come Together'
DJ/producer/beat digger/kung fu movie aficionado/all around nice guy Paul Nice has come through with the goods by blending Lorde’s Royals with The Beatles/John Lennon’s Come Together. It’s featured on a compilation of remixes, edits & blends that Paul has put together that features tastefully reworked tunes of Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, The Doobie Brothers, Sade, D’Angelo, ATCQ and a bunch more. Hear the Lorde & Lennon flip HERE and get your ears around the whole set of tunes HERE.  While all the bootlegs might be highly illegal there’s no denying that they’re also highly entertaining and enjoyable so nab em while you can!
