    any fans of this australian songster? he made (semi-)waves last year with his solo ep mostly for his cover of riri's diamonds but also the rather good open season. i discovered him through funky (his legacy lives!) and i've really liked bits of his stuff (see also hustler) but he has finally delivered a song i like everything about: til i found you

    he has a tint of mor about him but you can tell he's going for a bit of an edge so i hope he can pull through.

    Haven't heard this new one yet but Open Season was one of my favourites from last year. I've found the rest of his output to be a bit 7/10

    been obsessed with Holding On for a few months now though :disco:

    should've figured you'd be aware - he was apparently opening for banks last year. i loved the verses on "open season" but the chorus never clicked. i know what you mean about 7/10. i think the new one is better though.

    The Tourist song is EXCELLENT, I've not really been totally sold on anything else yet though, but I have hope he can deliver soon as I really like his voice and general VIBE.

    open season has finally received the video treatment and a french verse version. both are great, the video is already up there with my favourite clips ever.

    He takes a nice photo and I've quite enjoyed his previous stuff but Paradise is definitely a level up. I wonder if they will retain the Franglais angle when they launch the album more widely?

    i have a feeling paradise might make him if it gets the proper video and promo. it sounds like a hit. maybe from a few years ago but still *.*

    (till i found you is still my favourite)

    so the album is quite good though i'm a bit pissed they've redone til i found you (it was amazing as it was, fools!).

    anyway, i love his brand of pop music - it feels both relevant and different yet immediate. i hope they give it a proper push at some point. the finger-click disco violins of closer, constant runner and night swim were the ones that stood out on first listen, shoot and run is rather boombastic as well.

    07 The Days
    08 Paradise (Le paradis nous trouvera)

    Oh the boyfriend is proper obsessed with him. I LOVE open season and like most what else I've heard. Was meant to see him live a few weeks ago but was cancelled :evil:

    Paradise entirely in English isn't quite the same. It feels a little less special and smaller:

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/KiC32sc3ejg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    The beginning part reminds me slightly of that Are You With Me song as well.

    I'm now a bit torn as to whether to get the French version of the album or the international deluxe:

    01. Open Season
    02. Paradise
    03. Hustler
    04. Punchline
    05. Closer
    06. Till I Found You
    07. Shoot and Run
    08. Constant Runners
    09. Night Swim
    10. The Days
    11. Every Night
    12. A Better Word
    13. Secret
    14. This Life
    15. Diamonds
    16. In The Audience

    Turns out Josef has become a bit of a random dance diva. The Grum remix of "till i found you" was nice - but this is even better:

    Enjoying the album very much. Hustler isn't my favourite song of his, but 'it's not easy on my bedsheets' is quite the opening line.

    Especially loving Closer and Constant Runners of the 'new' stuff.

    Bloody amazing voice and loved the dancing so cute! Highlights Closer, till I found you, open season and also 《in the audience》- what an amazing/awful way to break up with someone!

    LOL!

    Also LOVED the gig. He's got some major sex appeal. Its the voice and the moves, I think. And the snarly lips. Also loved seeing Mr and Mrs Alex (LOL). :disco:

    Haha well yes. I'd imagine it would be a bit awkward really! Only person I waited for was Natlie imbruglia ten years ago but she never came out we missed her :(

    I only know the Diamonds cover, which in itself was amazing. I might have to give a few more songs a wee listen.

    It was definitely better on second listen. There's something in the chorus, even if those verses are ridiculously garbled and I'm not sure it really plays to his strong suit.

    In the Afternoon has already grown a bit, and I am kind of getting over the first listen giving off a slight whiff of Sheeran:

    new one.



    i've been really lukewarm to him this time round. the songs are just not as strong.

    This one feels more like his first album material. I'm not wild about how just when it builds to that bridge, all the life seems to come right back out straight after.
