Aine Tyrrell 'Fledgling Fall' Launch at The Gasometer w/ Yirrmal

Tickets $15+BF/$18 on the door. Doors 7.00 PM

Irish Australian artist Áine Tyrrell has taken yet another powerful and creative leap with her latest release – new EP Fledging Fall. The Gasometer Hotel in Melbourne is the perfect setting for the launch of her new EP.

Amazing special guest: Yirrmal will open up the night. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7qN3Uvh1nc

Fledging Fall is out now through Brisbane label SUGARRUSHMusic and still captures elements of her traditional folk roots. But this striking group of songs captures a new confidence as she finds a new creative voice and a whole new palette of sounds. It is also a record where ´Áine has taken collaboration to new levels.

“My musical family flew in from all corners of the world to see what they could add to our three days of work," she explains. "The songs flew back and forth from Australia to Ireland to America and each time I was in awe of the hands that came into help this little EP hatch into the best damn thing it could be. The only thing that interrupted our recordings were the birds. Chickens, magpies, and all the other birds of the forest came and checked in every now and then to see what we were up to. We decided on a name of Fledging Fall for the body of work as this piece of work represents the idea of what comes next after the hatching of my first album.”

LISTEN TO FLEDGLING FALL NOW ON SPOTIFY

Áine has just completed her first European and Irish tour in over six years – which saw her receive rave reviews. She had her song "Don't Be Left Crying" hit number 1 the national Irish broadcaster RTE indie releases chart as well as the EP being included in and move into the top ten of the 'World Music" iTunes charts in both Ireland and Australia.

The release of Fledging Fall comes as Áine continues work on her next album in Ireland with Glen Hansard's band The Frames, Liam O'Maonlai (Hothouse Flowers), and long time producer Mark Stanley.

Australian audiences will get the chance to experience Fledgling Fall live with a huge tour throughout September. October and November 2017 including major festivals and sharing the stage with fellow Irish songwriters Wallis Bird and Declan O Rourke.

Glass Diamonds Single Launch with KAIA and Kayo (UPSTAIRS)

Tickets $10 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Glass Diamonds.jpg

After several months squirrelled about in a glittery synth cave, Glass Diamonds have emerged with their new single, Two Wrongs.

The band was born from an experiment in a studio in Melbourne one night in late 2016. Producer Jaymes Brown was playing with an old reel-to-reel tape machine, a drum machine and a synthesiser. A simple loop soon turned into a jam, layered with saturated drums, echoey, filtered synths and disco bass. Later, with the help of vocalist Tegan Thorogood, that jam turned into a song.

A couple of months of writing passed and before the duo knew it, they had an album's worth of material together. With the addition of bassist James Trewenack, what had started as a simple experiment soon morphed into a fully blown band.

Glass Diamonds will launch their new single and music video, Two Wrongs, upstairs at the Gasometer Hotel on Wednesday 25 October, with beatmaker and songstress Kaia and electronic duo Kayo.

Two Wrongs is an explosion of swirling synth, sweaty beats and soaring vocals, with a clear agenda for the dance floor.

HARM REDUCTION SAVES LIVES

After our first successful gig we are back with another great lineup for a great cause.

The Victorian state government recently announced that they would not consider a supervised injection facility (SIF) despite all the evidence and experts saying that it would lead to harm reduction. The same goes for pill testing at festivals and nightclubs.

The ACT government has recently announced that they would allowe on site pill testing at the Spilt Milk festival. We should remember that it was the hard work of many activists who have made this possible.

But the Victorian government are still continuing with the law and order approach as they are more concerned with gaining votes that saving lives. It is time for us as a community to priorotise all of our safety and to provide the services needed to do so.

The money raised at this gig will be used to fund pill testing as well as a SIF. We want to engage in peaceful direct action to put pressure on the government to put lives ahead of votes.

So come on down for a good time and to support the cause!

North Arm (a.k.a Roderick Smith) at times conjures the dreamy likes of Wild Nothing or DIIV with a slight tinge of Boards of Canada. At others, North Arm sharpens the pencil with crisp sounds reminiscent of The Whitest Boy Alive or the bombastic wall of sound style of Broken Social Scene. 'Let Love Through' is the latest album from North Arm and involves the collaboration with Melbourne-based artist Robin Waters (originally from Brisbane band The Boat People, and wizard producer to the likes of Eves the Behaviour, Darling James, Ella Hooper, Wilding, S.J. Smith and Dan Parsons). Smith is also reunited on the title track with ARIA-nominated producer J. Walker (aka Machine Translations), after working with him on the 2015 self-titled debut. North Arm is bringing the 'Let Love Through' album show to Melbourne, playing with support from local heroes Quivers and Darling James.

HEART BEACH (Hobart, Tasmania) have a residency at the Gasso in November 2017.

About Heart Beach:

Heart Beach play sad, girl-guy, 9to5 pop songs. In 2016 the band signed to legendary Australian label Spunk! (Arcade Fire, Akron/Family, Animal Collective, Antony and the Johnsons, Belle and Sebastian, Broken Social Scene, Explosions in the Sky, the Libertines, Sufjan Stevens, Sleater Kinney, Mac Demarco, the Yeah Yeah Yeah's).

Reviews:

“There’s something very satisfying about a band that limits itself to a simple aesthetic and builds a world with what they have” (Rolling Stone)

“Like The Smiths, like Joy Division, this music is oddly and often wonderfully uplifting. Almost every song starts with a drawn-out chord poignant enough to break Rupert Murdoch’s stony heart. It takes a brave, thoughtful band to sound this vulnerable. Heart Beach are beautiful, beautiful, melancholy babies. Treasure them.” (The Guardian ★★★★)

Announcing the one-off return of blues punk legends Harem Scarem. To coincide with Laneway Music’s re-release of their back catalogue - including the classic 1986 album Pilgrim’s Progress, Dogman ep, and a trove of unreleased live material, demos, and other rareties - Harem Scarem will perform a strictly one-off show at the Gasometer Hotel, Thursday 9th November 2017.

In mid-80s Melbourne, the Blues and Punk Rock had a baby and they named it Harem Scarem – long since gone, but never forgotten, the classic line up featuring Christopher Marshall, Charlie Marshall, Barry Palmer and Chris Wilson reforms for a night of beauty and chaos as they return to their blistering blues-punk rock roots.

Fans with fond memories of the band, along with those who missed out the first time, can experience the intensity and power that is Harem Scarem live at the Gasometer Hotel on Thursday 9th November. Able support will be provided by the Sand Pebbles – fresh from sold-out shows following the release of their new album Pleasure Maps – and James McCann and the New Vindictives.

Tumbleweed may disappear here and there for a while, the hiatus was nearly two years this time & it felt like it may have lasted forever, but when friends twisted our arm to pull ourselves together to do a few shows in May, we had to think about a bass player. What do you do? It is a sensitive issue, too difficult to contemplate. Jamie Cleaves has been playing around the 'Gong in bands since the early 90s, his band Shifter played many early shows with Tumbleweed and since then he’s been playing in Lenny's other band, The Pink Fits. He comes into the jam room and locks in immediately, not only his playing style but his personality as well, he just fits right into place. There is new spark, it feels good again and it sounds better than ever!

Tumbleweed play the Gasometer Hotel, 484 Smith St, Collingwood on Friday November 10th. Special guests HITS and Grindhouse, tickets available through OzTix.

Beaches 'Second Of Spring' Launch with Marty Frawley Band & Primo

Melbourne psych-rock icons Beaches launch their epic new double album Second Of Spring at the Gasometer in November, with special guests to be announced. Released in early September, the album is already being hailed as a 2017 must-have, with sterling reviews piling in from The Age, Rolling Stone, Herald Sun and The Quietus, and feature albums on RRR, FBI, PBS and 2SER. Second Of Spring is Beaches at their most expansive and assured - a vast, enveloping sonic landscape, filled with extended instrumentals, overdriven psych-outs and propulsive pop nuggets.

Beaches’ much-loved second album She Beats brought the band international acclaim in 2013. Featuring guest guitar by German motorik hero Michael Rother (Neu, Harmonia), the album earned raves from Pitchfork, Stereogum, Gorilla Vs Bear, Spin and elsewhere. Their self-titled 2008 debut was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize (as was She Beats), and included in glossy coffee table book 100 Best Australian Albums. Beaches have toured the US twice, playing SXSW and Austin Psych Fest, and shared stages with Roky Erickson, Deerhunter, The Cult, Thee Oh Sees, Lightning Bolt, Mogwai, Best Coast and more.

Already revered as sprawling, swirling psych overlords, Second Of Spring is Beaches’ undeniable magnum opus.

No Local and Closet Straights are teaming up with local label Cobra Snake Necktie Records to put a song on each side of a limited run of 7" vinyls .

No Local's track "What You Think Is Nothing" is lifted from their stunning 2017 cassette Never Really Feels Like Im Going To Be Around For Long. It is a cutting example of their ability to craft a fine AF pop song.

Closet Straights' "You Get On Yours" is a stand alone single prior to the release of their new LP Blue Rose. It's a testament to Lashlie's versatility as a songwriter and a real sign of what's to come.

Support for the evening is from local royalty Classic.

Come party up the stairs at The Gasometer Hotel on Saturday 11th November. $10 on the door.

About Heart Beach:

Heart Beach play sad, girl-guy, 9to5 pop songs. In 2016 the band signed to legendary Australian label Spunk! (Arcade Fire, Akron/Family, Animal Collective, Antony and the Johnsons, Belle and Sebastian, Broken Social Scene, Explosions in the Sky, the Libertines, Sufjan Stevens, Sleater Kinney, Mac Demarco, the Yeah Yeah Yeah's).

Reviews:

“There’s something very satisfying about a band that limits itself to a simple aesthetic and builds a world with what they have” (Rolling Stone)

“Like The Smiths, like Joy Division, this music is oddly and often wonderfully uplifting. Almost every song starts with a drawn-out chord poignant enough to break Rupert Murdoch’s stony heart. It takes a brave, thoughtful band to sound this vulnerable. Heart Beach are beautiful, beautiful, melancholy babies. Treasure them.” (The Guardian ★★★★)

Mesa Cosa 'Es El Demons' Launch with Special Guests

Tickets $12+BF/$15 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

This year Mesa Cosa has raised the devil, they've started their own underground snake worshipping cult, they pronounced their love of blood AND brains, they even started a big fire. Now Melbourne's five (sometimes six, sometimes seven) headed hydra Mesa Cosa are ready to release a new album and tour its contents while spreading their message of occult celebration throughout Australia and Japan.

Don't fear the wizard, 'El Es Demons' is a 12-track 45 minute trip into some of the finest music ever produced on this world, nay indeed, the underworld.

In the words of Def Leppard's Phil Collen taken from the Def Leppard Hysteria 30th Anniversary documentary: 'If they can put a man on the moon, they can fit 45 minutes of music onto a vinyl record, what with the new technology and all that'

"They said we couldn't fit it all in one vinyl, WE JUST LOWERED THE AUDIO QUALITY" - Mesa Cosa

Still fatigued from the unexpected success of their first two sold out releases, Mesa Cosa managed to find the inspiration in the hum drum of catching the 86 tram and thinking about what would happen if everyone in it were suddenly sucked into a giant satanic wormhole upon which there is no return. 'Satanic songs from the 86' (Working title) will be the accompanying folk-punk acoustic release no one is waiting for.

Recorded by Nao Anzai and mixed by Stu Mckenzie from King Googly Eggs and the Googly Boys, the record includes what are sure to become timeless classics such as 'Ghostdog' a song about a dead dog that becomes a dead ghost, and 'No Return' celebrating the life and times of Thelma and indeed, Louise, Mesa Cosa have created an album that will live on throughout the ages.

Launched on November 1st, the record comes with a printed black and white cover and a black vinyl with a black sleeve for which they paid $30 extra from the satanic print shop of doom that is pressing this abomination.

BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE... Mesa Cosa will be heading to Japan in October taking their famous Halloween celebrations around the world.

With shows all across Australia in November this is a party and a record you cannot afford to miss. Because tickets are only $12 pre sale, and the records come in discount bundles.

BAD PONY BIOGRAPHY - OCTOBER 2017.

There might be something about growing up in a nation essentially founded on a prison labour colony that instills in a band a sense of tirelessness. Whether it's heritage, hope or insanity that fuels Bad Pony, they simply don't seem to stop.

Since releasing their debut EP 'Limbo' in 2015, the Sydney-based quintet has independently released four self-produced singles, all with national radio success. On the touring front, this premier indie outfit have clocked up thousands of kilometres with three national tours since 2015 and an appearance at world-renown Music Matters, Singapore 2016. The boys launched themselves into 2017 with a showcase at Canadian Music Week and a successful run of Sofar Sounds shows in the US and have just been announced as part of the Australian line-up at the world’s biggest music conference, SXSW 2018 in Austin, Texas.

Whilst even the most fanatical marathon runner would at least take a moment to stretch out their aching hamstrings, Bad Pony aren’t showing any signs of slowing down. The band will hit the road to round-off a huge 2017, which includes performances at Australian Music Week on November 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Starting in Sydney and moving along the East Coast, the band will include Hobart in the eight-date run and will wrap up at Summerfest in Taree on December 2.

After inking a publishing deal with Perfect Pitch Publishing as well as a booking deal with 123 Agency in 2016, the band have their sophomore EP, 'Deficiency' in the cooker and launched into this year with the release of their explosive single of the same title with a premiere on Rolling Stone Australia, airplay on Triple J and a successful national run of shows that saw them play to packed-out rooms across Australia.

Bad Pony are an explosive live power-force not to be missed!

Niche Presents Gabriel Garzon Montano with Special Guests

Tickets $35+BF/$40 on the door. Doors 8.00 PM

Niche are excited to present the Australian debut of Brooklyn-born and raised singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Garzón-Montano.

His debut album Jardín comes on the heels of three intense years of touring, writing and recording. Soon after the 2014 release of his debut EP, Bishouné: Alma del Huila, Gabriel was invited out on the road by rock legend Lenny Kravitz, as direct support concerts across Europe. The day after playing Wembley Arena, he received a call notifying him that his song "6 8" would be sampled by Drake on his full-length If You're Reading This, It's Too Late. The months following these cosigns Garzón-Montano was featured at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits, and on back-to-back tours with English indie-rockers Glass Animals and Stones Throw label mate Mayer Hawthorne.

On Jardín, Gabriel Garzón-Montano sings of the struggles and uncertainties of the many- layered game that is America today, from the specific doubt and double consciousness of the first- generation hustle, to the universal challenges of love, legacy, and exploring the maze of one's own mind.

A child of immigrant parents - a child of Brooklyn, NY - Garzón-Montano’s aesthetic is an extension of his French-Colombian heritage, a pastiche of Bach sonatas, cumbia records, and the machine gun funk that echoes to this day from behind half-rolled tints up and down Nostrand Ave. His mother, a member of the Philip Glass ensemble in the 1990’s, instilled within him a painstaking attention to detail that remains a hallmark of his process. “My mother is the reason I love music,” he says. Her rigorous classical instruction served as his creative engine as he honed his skills over the course of years in the lab, copping Stevie's changes, studying Prince's lyrics, and absorbing the beat theses of Timbaland, Dilla, and Pete Rock.

BANFF 'RENEW' TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTS

$15+BF/$20 ON THE DOOR. DOORS 8.00 PM

BANFF SHARES STUNNING NEW TRACK ‘RENEW’

PRAISE FOR BANFF

“I reckon he’s absolutely a star on the rise.” - Zan Rowe, Triple J

“Forbes balances free-flowing folk-pop with sharp stabs of sorrow…undercuts the luscious layered harmonies with a reflective tone of mistakes made, ships sailed etc.” – Rolling Stone AUS

“Benjamin Forbes is a new name on the Australian music scene, but if his first single is anything to go by, he's one you'll be hearing a lot more about soon.” - Indie Shuffle

“Act Of Misacting [has] a nice tension to it, allowing you to see both sides of the argument and the soul in the machine.” – The Single Life (The Music)

“Understated and calming” – Society of Sound

Consistently delivering one gorgeous track after another, Brisbane singer-songwriter BANFF (aka Benjamin Forbes) is today ready to share his latest creation ‘Renew’. BANFF will also be touring in November and December, playing shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney to support the release.

Speaking about ‘Renew’, Forbes admits the track is “definitely a personal one.” The track is immediately familiar, yet completely original, boasting a wistful tone. “‘Renew’ kinda talks about the insecurities that I felt as an artist just deciding that I’d launch new music into the world, and waiting to really change the traditional treatment that I’d given all of my songs,” Forbes details. “It’s like a love story with the art of writing songs.”

"I played in bands for years, which is awesome, but sometimes you've just gotta break away and really throw yourself out there and challenge yourself," is how Benjamin Forbes explains his decision to part company with Brisbane band Little Casino in 2014, "and BANFF was the result of me just wanting to become a better songwriter and really take a lot of control over the creative output that I was delivering."

Shortly afterwards, Forbes found himself in Melbourne at the studio of Tom Iansek (Big Scary, #1 Dads), putting down BANFF’s debut EP, Future Self, which was released mid-2015. All three singles from this EP were picked up for community, national and international radioplay with Stand In Line featured in the Netflix series Degrassi: Next Class, also finding its way onto the TV show’s official soundtrack.

"People seemed to listen to it," Forbes observes of his early BANFF material. And this immediate success motivated him to continue writing solo material to ultimately pursue "music as a career".

After taking out the triple j Unearthed competition to perform The Falls Music & Arts Festival in Byron Bay, BANFF showcased at The Great Escape and then toured Europe with Slow Dancer.

Since the release of Future Self, Forbes has recruited an impressive roster of musicians including Adrian Mauro (Machine Age, guitar/synths), Dominic Spooner (bass) and Daniel Puusaari (Cub Scout, drums). "All of those guys have played on this latest release,” Forbes reveals, “and have toured with me across Australia, and internationally. So it was nice to get a band together who had played with BANFF before and understood the sound and what I was wanting to do.”

Catch BANFF live in November and December on the following dates.

THE SETTLEMENT are a band of brothers from regional Victoria that rose from the ashes of the much loved BUDDHA IN A CHOCOLATE BOX.

They have released music each year since forming and have been touring Australia relentlessly earning themselves the reputation of a gang of reprobates that can really fucking play. On and off the stage.

2017 has been huge for THE SETTLEMENT with the release of their debut album Stand In The Middle which realizes their potential as songwriters and recording artists.

"Partnering the song’s sombre focus with the strained stretch of violins and vocalist Adrian Calvano’s elongated, bluntly-delivered lines" - RollingStone Aus

“a rollicking slice of tunage” - The Brag on "She's Alright"

"Here, The Settlement successfully dump tired country music tropes to welcome everyone in for a drink." - The Music on Stand In The Middle

"The band’s roots in folk is clear, but they’ve projected a great amount of evocative punch with this single that indicates The Settlement’s move into some great alt-country territory." - The Au Review on "She Feels Like Home"

2017 also represents their first foray into International touring as they been accepted to play in LA at the YouBloom and NYC at the Mondo Festivals. They will spend a month in the US during September and October making believers out of a whole new territory of potential fans.

THE SETTLEMENT believe so hard from the stage that it's impossible not to feel the same from the audience.

ROBYN HITCHCOCK - 40 YEARS AND COUNTING

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England's most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician's musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock's greatest songsmiths and is set to treat audiences in Melbourne and Sydney to a collection of tracks that span his career.

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums including his self-titled most recent which has been described as an "ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove" (and that’s by Robyn himself).

December sees two very special concerts from Robyn featuring songs from his entire career. From Soft Boys classics (‘I Wanna Destroy You’, ‘Kingdom Of Love’, ‘Underwater Moonlight’), through early solo masterpieces (‘Brenda’s Iron Sledge’, ‘Egyptian Cream’, ‘The Man With The Lightbulb Head’), Egyptians era milestones (‘If You Were a Priest’, ‘Queen Elvis, Balloon Man’, ‘Madonna Of The Wasps’), and recent magnum opuses (‘Detective Mindhorn’, ‘I Pray When I’m Drunk’, ‘Be Still’).

Accompanying Robyn will be Davey Lane, hot off his recent solo album success (I’m Gonna Burn Out Bright.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as “paintings you can listen to”. His most recent album Robyn Hitchcock (produced by Brendan Benson of The Raconteurs) has received stunning reviews. 21 albums in and Robyn Hitchcock is composing and performing songs as strong as anything you will hear anywhere.

"A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings..." - Rolling Stone

Not since John Lydon changed it up from the Sex Pistols to PiL has a curveball felt so bracingly exhilarating.

"Tropical Fuck Storm are already one of the most exciting Australian acts around, and ‘Chameleon Paint’ is already one of the songs of the goddamn year.

THIRSTY MERC'S TAKE ME BACK TOUR TO HIT MELBOURNE!

15 years ago, Thirsty Merc bounded onto the music scene with their Summertime sounds, making their mark on radio and TV over the ensuing years and to celebrate this milestone, the band are heading back out on the road on their Take Me Back Tour kicking off in Brisbane on 2 November.

Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September, 2003, before being signed to Warner Music. The band’s big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In The Summertime (the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006).

Two more studio albums followed - Slideshows in 2007 (#4 ARIA Album) and Mousetrap Heart in 2010 (#14 on the ARIA Album chart) which included radio staples, 20 Good Reasons, Mousetrap Heart and Tommy and Krista

Fast forward to 2015 - Thirsty Merc released Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years and spent the next few months crossing the country; running up thousands of Frequent Flyer points and sold out shows.

Besides the hits, the Take Me Back Tour is a celebration of all the music along the way and fans can expect to hear songs they’ve never heard the band perform live before.

Lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte, said today: “It’s thanks to the fans that we’re still here, loving life and music, 15 years later and this tour is a big “thank you” to everyone who’s sung along with us over the years, as well as a great opportunity to dust off some songs we’ve never included in our shows"

We Lost The Sea - Five Years Of The Quietest Place On Earth Tour

Tickets $20+BF/$25 on the door.

After a busy and exciting year for We Lost The Sea, including their first and very successful tour to Europe, they will be wrapping it up with a small run of shows to celebrate the 5th anniversary of their acclaimed second album The Quietest Place On Earth.

TQPOE was released on December 1, 2012. This record was an important step for them and included some powerful songs that would help define their sound and them as a band. It was also the last album that their late friend and frontman, Chris Torpy, would be on, after taking his own life in March 2013.

This is a special record for the band and fans and has rarely been played live since losing Chris. This run of shows will include songs from this album and the highly acclaimed Departure Songs and a couple of other surprises. They will be joined by longtime friend Jarrod Krafczyk (The Amenta, At Dark, Omerata) on vocal duties, and Brendon Warner will be back on 3rd guitar for this tour.

These will be the last shows for their year and will see the band go into writing and recording mode to work on their next album, scheduled for release some time in 2018.

AJJ (FORMERLY ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD) ANNOUNCE AUSTRALIAN TOUR

Phoenix, Arizona garbage pop veterans AJJ (Formerly Andrew Jackson Jihad) return to Australia this September, armed with their unique collection of scuzzy punk screeds. Since touring Australia with The Smith Street Band in 2015 they’ve released their sixth album The Bible 2 out through SideOneDummy Records.

The album's mantra is placed at the centre: "No More Shame, No More Fear, No More Dread". The Bible 2 finds the band choosing intimacy over isolation, gravity over the vacuum, the stage instead of the scene. Album opener ‘Cody’s Theme’ rings like Jay Reatard distorted with Neutral Milk Hotel neuroses ("I set the mommy on fire / I set the baby on fire / not even Jesus could stop me").

Singer Sean Bonnette's narrative skills, and the band's growing nuances have never been more heartbreaking than on ‘Junkie Church’, a tender acoustic tale about affection and companionship on the lowest rung of society ("I used your rubs as ladders / and I climbed up your chest / and I jumped up and down just like a trampoline" Bonnett sings.) The bands synth, cello and bass are employed to haunting Leonard Cohen-like production ends, staccato plucks and serrated chords hiving like gnats then quickly dissolving into darkness.

Former touring partner Wil Wagner from The Smith Street Band recently said “Sean might be my favourite living lyricist and we’re all lucky to have his songs in our lives. His songs get better and more polished every album but still maintain all the weird beautiful qualities that made me fall in love ten years ago”.

Playing the already announced and sold out Yours & Owls Festival in Wollongong alongside At The Drive In, AJJ have announced a huge Australian tour, taking in most capital cities and a big chunk of regional areas.

Avian soundscaper Flamingo Jones has returned from the lagoon with a healthy new serving of Nature Beat, entitled "Lazers In The Jungle". The 4 track EP boasts all the humidity and tropical goodness of Jones' previous material, only, with a considerably more ernest approach to the island vibes.

Lead singles "North (We'll Be Warmer Up There)" and "The Island Does Crazy Things" have both garnered acclaim on radio, the blogosphere, and beyond, praising the Flamingo for his unique production style and desire to tackle more heartfelt subject matters on this release.

"Lazers In The Jungle" gets its official release on October 2nd, so dust off those GF day cobwebs and have a listen - it's like a free trip to the Bahamas!

"The genre that this Melbourne producer lists himself under is so good! It's called "Nature Beat" ... It's kind of like The Jungle Book but there's no python, no Shere Khan, just the fun, friendly animals!" - Declan Byrne (Triple J)

"‘North’ is another glimmering jungle jam from Jones, but has more of a thoughtful, ethereal vibe than much of his previous work" - Tone Deaf

"Chock full of traditional Afro-Cuban instruments and lavish atmospheric layers" - Red Bull Music

Beginning in Sydney on September 23rd and finishing up in Melbourne on October 1st, this tour will be the first opportunity for Australian audiences to catch the dynamic trio live. The Wellington based three piece kick off their Australian tour at an all-time high following the August release of Perfect Body, which has been receiving rave reviews from around the globe.

Mermaidens are Gussie Larkin (guitar, vocals), Lily West (bass, vocals) and Abe Hollingsworth (drums). The trio burst onto the scene with their widely acclaimed debut EP O in 2014 and went on to release their debut album Undergrowth in 2016. As a result, they were offered dozens of shows and international support slots, which led to them being picked up by Flying Nun Records.The Wellington trio offer a mesmerising dip into the realms of post-punk and psych, defined by intricate songwriting, boldly raw – yet increasingly refined – studio production, and a hypnotic live synergy that leaves audiences enchanted.

Don’t miss this band in the heat of their new record, Perfect Body, on tour around Australia this September -they’re set to make a similar impact on the global music scene as they have at home in New Zealand.
