New music for your ears including Savages, Anatole, Fraser A. Gorman, Dorsal Fins, Wild Nothing, Myster Jets & more!
FRASER A. GORMAN – SKYSCRAPER SKYLINE BLUES (MILK!)
In the wake of his acclaimed debut album, “Slow Gum”, Fraser A. Gorman leads the charge with the winsome jangle of 'Skyscraper Skyline Blues': a dizzy ode to urban romance featuring Ella Thompson (Dorsal Fins) and a chorus that will clean your windows, forever.
VERA BLUE – HOLD (INDEPENDENT)
Cutting her teeth as a folk artist in the small town of Forbes, 20-year old Vera Blue first found her feet as a singer and then an acoustic guitarist. Now, she’s found her sound, mixing the music she’s long loved within the realm of electronica. The results are sometimes gentle, sometimes ferocious and always show-stopping, with her commanding vocals front and centre.
MYSTERY JETS – TELOMERE (CAROLINE)
Recently announcing their fifth studio album, having signed to Caroline worldwide, Mystery Jets have released the first single ‘Telomere’ from “Curve of the Earth”. Recorded between the summer of 2013 and summer of 2015 in Stoke Newington in London, relocating the recording back to London the band set up their own recording space in a disused button factory.
SAVAGES – T.I.W.Y.G (MATADOR / REMOTE CONTROL)
Following on from the announcement of their highly anticipated second album, “Adore Life”, Savages have unveiled new track ‘T.I.W.Y.G.’, another unflinching musical attack. Adore Life was recorded in RAK Studios, London in April 2015. Johnny Hostile was the producer and Richard Woodcraft the engineer. Anders Trentemøller took care of the mixing in Copenhagen.
ANATOLE – COLOURS (TEEF)
Anatole’s brand new single ‘Colours’ is further evidence of the Australian musician’s incredible attention to production micro-nuances. The track sees Anatole enlist a swathe of fellow Sydney Conservatorium musicians/friends to record violins, violas, cellos, double bass, clarinet and flute atop his meticulous electronic production. His own finger snaps, acoustic sections and signature piano lines miraculously allow the track to breathe as it slowly builds into a call and response string section that never feels cluttered despite the rich array of instrumentation. There’s sadness and space in the conversational string sections that is testament to the skills of mixer Andrei Eremin whose credits include Chet Faker, Hiatus Kaiyote and Oscar Key Sung.
WILD NOTHING – TO KNOW YOU (CAPTURED TRACKS / REMOTE CONTROL)
After releasing his debut album, “Gemini” to critical acclaim as well as his equally impressive sophomore release, “Nocturne” and a series of EPs, Wild Nothing is excited to share the first two cuts from from the album; 'TV Queen' and 'To Know You’.
DORSAL FINS – HEART ON THE FLOOR (GRIPLESS / REMOTE CONTROL)
Trumpeter and lead songwriter of the group Liam McGorry says of the ridiculously catchy number, “Heart on the Floor the song, to me, is really a summary of Dorsal Fins the band...it's fun, effortless and it's friends. I think Ben did an amazing job of translating that to the video.”
THE AVES – JUAN BIANO (FIRESTARTER)
Filled with jangly guitars, upbeat rhythms and laconic vocals laced with harmonies, ‘Juan Bianco’ is a tough as boots slice of garage pop about dreams lost and starry eyed suburban ambition. Initially taking cues from a varied range of the greats like Talking Heads, Elvis Costello, The Kinks and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Aves have taken the melting pot of influences and naturally developed their own succinct style.
