Lazy Summer Choon of the Week.

After a brief sabbatical, Poptique is back - thoroughly enjoying the gorgeous weather along with the footie. Perfect time of year for BBQs soundtracked with lazy-backed music, and one track that immediately springs to mind has been getting some well deserved attention recently, due to it's beautiful video.

Suburban Harmony is opening track on Children Stay Free- the 2003 album from Australian indie-folk trip-hoppers Telemetry Orchestra. Reminiscent of Morcheeba and Lemon Jelly with Dubstarry vocals, its just the sort of thing that sounds even better when the sun is out.

The psychedelic video, heavily inspired by Heinz Edelmann's production design for Yellow Submarine, was produced by animator Steve Scott, who is also a member of the Telemetry Orchestra.

Frankly, some people are too bloody talented for their own good...

(The Youtube version does have a rather irritating audio glitch throughout, so you might want to download this Quicktime, which sounds - and looks - much cleaner. Better still, go buy the album...)

Hey Poptique - who are you pulling for in the footie?

It almost goes without saying that I'd love England to walk it, but they've got to raise their game to be in with a shout.

Out of everyone, Argentina are looking pretty solid...
