August 2011 Playlist

home is where the ART is

Hi Gang, this month to celebrate Triple J’s recent hottest 100 aussie albums of all time i’ve decided
to feature a few charming acts from Brisbane and interstate for your listening pleasure.
hope you enjoy, xox sim.

 

 


01. Millions – Those Girls
Fresh off the back of winning Triple J’s Splendour Unearthed competition earlier this month, this 4-piece from Brissy know how to get you swooning. With some sweet grooving 50′s/60′s influences Those girls is the kind of track that’ll have you clicking and spinning out of control at your next box social.
Expect big things from these boys.

02. Strange Talk – Climbing Walls
Now the market may be a wee bit crowded with similar sounding electro slash dance slash pop acts these days post-Presets, Cut Copy and Midnight Juggers releases, but credit given where credit due, Strange Talk out of Melborneo can still get me shamelessly hand-clapping and ooo-oooing.
Embrace the cheesy synths!

03. Teleprompter – Banshee
A blitzing debut from local kids Teleprompter. Banshee is a explosive little number – frantic and frenzied rhythms, crashing cymbals, ragged guitar, wailing sirens and squeaking squalling vocals (remind me a little of old stuff from other Brisbanite rockers i heart hiroshima). Their debut self-titled EP is out now on itunes  and is definitely worth a gander.

04. DUNE RATS! – Pogo
Time to foxtrot those blues away some stripped-back, lo-fi, garage rock from this duo hailing from, yes again, Brissy. The guys are about to embark on an east coast tour for the launch of their second EP Social Atoms,  celebrating in style with fellow strutten launch party darlings Gung Ho! so make sure you do yourself a favour and show them some love.

05. The Medics – Rust
Really love the sound of these guys. The band best describes their music in an interview with Unearthed back in 2010 “The music is very unpredictable on first listen, ambient lows, soaring highs and the odd mid section chorus. Having heard that their live shows consist of anything ranging from outright yelling to soft acoustic guitar, the Medics are guaranteed to offer something for everybody.

06. Brous – Streamers

A very pretty, joyful little ditty from Melbourne musician Brous (pronounced Bruce, like juice except a dudes name) With a bold and striking presence, Brous’s voice reaches some pretty dizzying heights, complete with fuzz guitar and Komeda-esque children’s chorus – this psychpop anthem that will be ringing in your ears for days.

07. Bleeding Knees Club – Bad Guys
Some raw and toe-tapping good fun from this duo from the Goldie who definitely know how to have a good time, even if the bad guys steal all their girls. But cheer up boys, you and your greaser buddies are gonna be ok – remember when Fonzie jumped that shark?  eyyyyyy

08. I, A Man – Big Ideas
A great track from Melbourne boys I, A Man. Soaring carefree melodies, beautifully composed and amazingly catchy, this is something special for those long car rides down the east coast or just a sunny Sunday afternoon in the backyard.
Mad props to Leon Burton  for his love of eclectic riffage.

09. The Oyster Murders – Ghosts In Our Wake
Some sweet melancholy music from Brisbane’s The Oyster Murders. Like this haunting wave of delicate vocal and instrumental arrangements that builds superbly, a very epic track. Really looking forward to their upcoming EP, truly wonderful stuff.

10. Jonathan Boulet – You’re A Animal (Fishing Remix)
Now the original “You’re A Animal”  was a pretty amazing track already – a rallying cry, driven with percussion and galvanizing vocals. But along come electronic duo Fishing to turn it completely on it’s head. Much more of a tribal anthem then a call to arms, Fishing’s remix have really made this their own, boldly taking the track in a new dance-worthy direction.
