Yet again, MTV's Skins has given good tunes pump up the show. This time, Lawrence Arabia started the show with "The Beautiful Young Crew".
LAWRENCE ARABIA is the pseudonym of James Milne from New Zealand. He's played with Crowded House. He's toured in toured the UK and Europe with The Concretes, Feist, The Ruby Suns, Liam Finn and Okkervil River. In 2006 Lawrence Arabia released his self titled debut album and the debut album his band The Reduction Agents, The Dance Reduction Agents. Both albums were nominated for several Bnet awards, New Zealand's public voted alternative radio awards. Possibly, you heard his music in the movie Eagle VS. Shark. Chant Darling came out in 2009. Its hard to describe his music. He is perhaps politically influenced since he was educated at University of Canterbury, where he graduated with a BA in Political Science. Its been stated that Jamie is a psychedelic folk artist. In some circles that might be anti-folk. Whatever, his pop in his folk can make you think and grove at the same time.
