COURTNEY BARNETT RELEASES VIDEO FOR ‘KIM’S CARAVAN’ FOR RECORD STORE DAY + OZ TOUR STARTS

COURTNEY BARNETT RELEASES STUNNING VIDEO FOR ‘KIM’S CARAVAN’ IN CELEBRATION OF RECORD STORE DAY + AUSTRALIAN TOUR STARTS

courtney b2

Courtney Barnett has released the devastatingly beautiful and poignant video for ‘Kim’s Caravan’ from her debut album Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, an album which recently debuted at number #10 on the US Billboard album sales charts and #4 on the ARIA charts at home in Australia . ‘Kim’s Caravan’ will be released as a special Record Store Day 12″ and is paired with a gorgeous and intimate recording of John Cale’s ‘Close Watch’ as the B-Side.

Check It Out HERE!

Courtney tells us some background about the track which is written in part about environmental concerns for the Great Barrier Reef saying ‘Kim’s Caravan‘ is an apocalyptic tale of our world painted black with oil and soot, painted red with blood and greed. The song was born when blessed with time to reflect, feeling the frustration and helplessness of the destruction of my environment and the litter of humans within it. It was partly inspired by watching Black Rain Falls, a documentary about Midnight Oil’s concerts out the front of the Exxon building in NYC in 1990″. These issues and concerns are also depicted in the cover art drawn by Courtney especially for this release.

Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit is out now in Australia via Milk! Records / Remote Control Records.

SOAK Shares new video for ‘Blud’

SOAK Shares new video for ‘Blud’

soak

SOAK has unveiled a video for the official release of forthcoming-single ‘Blud’, ahead of the arrival of her debut album via Rough Trade / Remote Control. Before We Forgot How To Dream is due Friday 29th May. Watch ‘Blud’ here
Filmed between Derry, London and her nationwide tour of skate-parks, the video to ‘Blud’ documents SOAK’s whirlwind start to 2015 (and the go-karting track, mini-golf course or basement house-parties waiting back at home).  Lyrically, it’s a tender but timeless snapshot of a relationship in distress: ‘Blud’ was actually written shortly before SOAK’s parents separated, after Bridie lay on the floor in an attempt to listen in on an argument. An early version of the track was released by CHVRCHES’ singles-label last year, with singer Lauren Mayberry writing for NME at the time: “I was struck by the quality of SOAK’s songwriting, the individuality of her voice and the depth of her lyrics. Age be damned – talent shouts louder.”

‘Blud’ has since become a focal point of SOAK’s forthcoming debut album, Before We Forgot How To Dream – already compared with the likes of Laura Marling and Beach House, it’s a record which traces Bridie’s extraordinary journey in her career thus far, and also tackles those more universal themes of friendship, family or what to do with your future. She started writing songs at the age of thirteen, before an early demo of ‘Sea Creatures’ lit a fuse which picked up the attention of BBC Introducing and also saw A&R board the next flight to Derry (parking up outside the unsuspecting Monds-Watson household). Yet SOAK rushed into nothing, continuing to find her confidence as an artist and as a young woman. Having toured in the school holidays – Tegan & Sara, George Ezra – got her first tattoo (of 19) and completed her studies, things moved forward in 2014, when the soft-release of ‘Blud’ won widespread acclaim and ultimately led to a deal with Rough Trade the same summer most of her friends got their A-Level results.

On its surface, Before We Forgot How To Dream may initially appear nostalgic – romantic, even – towards a more innocent time. But despite the tumultuous tone which actually lingers beneath the record, there is still a persistently uplifting element to SOAK’s music. People grow up and nobody believes in Magic anymore, or you’re told to lower your expectations and that certain behaviour isn’t appropriate. This album is definitely about that time when you believed a bit more in things. You’d venture that belief will take SOAK further yet in her career, though ultimately her debut album seems to explore those joys and fears we take with us through life, from adolescence into adulthood – but simply get a little better at hiding.

SOAK – Before We Forgot How To Dream is out Friday 29 May via Rough Trade / Remote Control.

PEARLS PREMIERE VIDEO FOR ‘PRETEND YOU’RE MINE’

PEARLS – PREMIERE VIDEO FOR ‘PRETEND YOU’RE MINE’

+ SUPPORTING OH MERCY IN SYDNEY & MELBOURNE

Melbourne’s Pearls have today released the new video for album title track ‘Pretend You’re Mine’. The track is lifted from their debut album Pretend You’re Mine which was released worldwide in February 2015 via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.
Of the clip the band’s Cassandra Kiely (vocals/keyboard) says:

“The first spark of inspiration for the clip came by way of a hazy hangover, with the girls watching the Marc Bolan TV show in bed after a night out. It was the perfect comedown, Bolan in his bright pink satin suit, struttin around singing ‘Ride A White Swan’. The ladies adored the visuals and wanted to replicate that kind of sleazy, 70’s, tongue in cheek feel. The boys agreed and thus, the concept was put to Nicky White; director and close friend of the band. Nicky loved the idea of making a set in homage to the show and we roped in a bunch of darlings to help make it happen. Alden Epp stars in the clip as our bands mascot, the Pearls angel glitter baby! Nicky really did the rest, he ran wild with the concept and we are so happy with how it turned out. If you look closely you can see a white swan in the film clip for Pretend You’re Mine. Its our little ode to the wizard of glam, he ain’t no square with his corkscrew hair, the one and only Marc Bolan!”

Melbourne three-piece Pearls formed in 2011 and since have made shimmering sounds that float above their peers. In their time as a band Pearls have supported the likes of Kurt Vile, Marnie Stern, Sons & Daughters, and a myriad of local bands including Crime and City Solution, Sunbeam Sound MachineTotal ControlNew War. In 2013 Pearls released a split 7” on Glaswegian label RE:PEATER Records and recorded a cover of The Standells’ ‘Dirty Water’ for an Australian 40th Anniversary Nuggets compilation. Pearls’ self-titled debut EP was full of reverb-drenched, ethereal vocals and a hefty dose of beautiful noise.

Pearls will join Oh Mercy as main support on their upcoming ‘Sandy’ Single Launch Tour playing Sydney on Wednesday April 22nd at the Newtown Social Club and in Melbourne on Saturday 25th April at The Gasometer.

MANY THINGS New video ‘Holy Fire’

MANY THINGS  New video ‘Holy Fire’ 

many things

n alien from outer space, an injured bride, an amputee-hipster and zombie army soldier make up some of the fascinating mismatch of characters symbolising society in Many Things’ video for new single ‘Holy Fire’.

The apocalyptic clip is set in a postindustrial dystopian wasteland and was filmed in Amsterdam under the guidance of director Simon Green (XX Teens).
WATCH ‘HOLY FIRE’ HERE 

 

Many Thing’s Macks Faulkron explains “The idea began with the birth of the gold alien coming to earth to preach the lyrics of ‘Holy Fire’.  It came to life after many long chats with Simon and from our wacky imaginations and enjoyment of playing around with music and image”.

A barrage of electro sounds, driving percussion and call-and-response chants, ‘Holy Fire’ was inspired by Jon Hopkins’ notion of envisioning mixes as 3D shapes in infinite environments. The single is the first taste of their much-anticipated debut album “Burn Together” to be released in 2015 via Dew Process/Universal Music Australia.

Many Thing’s forthcoming debut album “Burn Together” follows last year’s ‘What We Are’ EP

Teeth & Tongue Share Video for New Song ‘Cupcake’

Solo project / five-piece-band Teeth & Tongue return with video for new song ‘Cupcake’. 

teeth & Tongue

Jess Cornelius has spent the past two months at the Nes Artist Residency in Iceland working on new material. Originally recorded in Melbourne, ‘Cupcake’ was a bit of a trans-atlantic affair.
“The recording needed vocals and a few extra bits, but by that point I was in Skagastrond surrounded by miles of ice and snow, and my shared concrete work space wasn’t really appropriate for recording. I did a call-out to the Icelandic villagers for foam and cardboard, and managed to build a really ugly-looking vocal booth, then took over the residency assistant’s office for a few days to track the vocals and synths. Jade recorded her backing vocals at home in Melbourne and sent them to me in Skagastrond, and I sent the whole lot back to Melbourne to Gareth Parton for mixing”.

 

Most of the video for ‘Cupcake’ was shot out of car and bus windows while driving around North Iceland, in Skagastrond and at the residency.

“I met a Canadian graphic novelist there, and she’d taken some  similar footage, so we put it together and made projections of it. She set up her camera and filmed me with the projections against the wall of the studio one evening, with all the other artists doing their own work in the background as I mimed along. Then I sent a great pile of footage back to Sunny Leunig in Melbourne for editing”.

Augie March Film Clip – Never Been Sad

Augie March Film Clip – Never Been Sad

augie march - nevere been sad clip

“Lissome Pete, Angelica apple cheek, ever the inheritors, you don’t strike as mild or meek
Just a genre, fodder, no canon, you read like a dunny wall I don’t want to read at all…”

The video for ‘Never Been Sad’ from the Augie March album ‘Havens Dumb’ sees the band working again with Ben Saunders, who made the wonderful clips for seminal Augie tracks The Vineyard, Little Wonder, The Cold Acre and One Crowded Hour.

You can watch it here ‘Never Been Sad’ 

The video was shot on the green fields of a farm near Meredith, Victoria and features ‘the kids of Jan Juc”.  As for the song itself, here’s what singer-songwriter Glenn Richards says about its conception:

“Grumpy old man song probably had it’s first flash in the sun-drenched courtyard of Preachers bar in Battery Point, surrounded by perky Young Liberals who were just beginning to scent the winds of change to come, fresh loads of premium Sandy Bay manure in preparation for dumping over the existing desiccated turd puzzle.  The insidious are always so very nice at the first meeting.  In that ozonic (not yet animalic) field, dazed by early afternoon red beer and the sensory marina of interchangeable Calvin Klein aquatics, this pretty misery guts of a tune had its divine spark flinted.”

ERRORS NEW ALBUM ‘LEASE OF LIFE’ OUT 23RD MARCH ON ROCK ACTION

ERRORS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ‘LEASE OF LIFE’ OUT 23RD MARCH ON ROCK ACTION RECORDS
errors01

Errors announce the release of their fourth album Lease of Life, due out 23 March 2015 on Rock Action Records in digital, CD and 12-inch vinyl formats. The album is preceded by the release of its title track, premiered today and available to buy 26 January. The Rock Action label was created by fellow Scotts, Mogwai.
Lease of Life is the follow up to Errors’ critically acclaimed 2012 album Have Some Faith In Magic. Formulated on the Hebridean Isle Of Jura – the location where George Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four and the place where The KLF are rumoured to have burned a million pounds – These guys sound as interesting as the back story suggests. The title track especially makes a compelling argument that this album will be compelling to hear.

Errors are Steev Livingstone, Simon Ward and James Hamilton. They are joined on Lease of Life by guest vocalists Cecilia Stamp and Bek Oliva (Magic Eye).

Mumford & Sons “Wilder Mind” In Store May 1st, Via Dew Process

Mumford & Sons unveil the first single from their forthcoming new album, Wilder Mind.

mumford sml

Check it out on Vevo Here. Personally, I liked it. I quite enjoy this style of clip, and the song is great, wonderful building Folk Rock feel about it.

‘Believe’ is released on the 27th April, and precedes the band’s third album, released on May 1st through Dew Process in Oz.

Wilder Mind was recorded at Air Studios, London and produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, HAIM, Florence & The Machine). It features twelve new tracks, written collaboratively by the band in London, Brooklyn, and Texas. A number of the new songs were written and demo’d at Aaron Dessner’s (The National) garage studios in Brooklyn.

This new album marks a significant departure for the young British band from their previous records, 2009’s Sigh No More, and 2012’s Babel. The early sessions in New York and London witnessed a change in the band’s approach not just to writing and recording, but to texture and dynamics, too.

Pre-order Wilder Mind here: www.mumfordandsons.com

Following the recent announcement of the band’s headline performance at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festivals, Mumford & Sons are very pleased to announce the first details and line-ups for their 2015 Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers.

Joining the band over the Stopovers will be the likes of The Foo Fighters, The Flaming Lips, Ben Howard, Primal Scream, The Vaccines, Simian Mobile Disco, The Maccabees, My Morning Jacket, Alabama Shakes, Dawes, and Jenny Lewis. There are no Aussie dates yet, but more are to be announced soon.Please visit the Gentlemen of the Road website for all ticket details. www.gentlemenoftheroad.com/tickets.
