WATCH: Mark Moldre | Where Will I Be?

Screen Shot 2013-06-07 at 5.51.54 PM

Mark Moldre has released the second single from his recent sophomore solo album An Ear To The Earth and it is accompanied by a very cool black & white clip steeped in gallows humour and a distinct old-Australia rural feel. I love the gang backing vocals on Where Will I Be?, make sure you check out the rest of the album (listen and buy on Bandcamp)and also catch him at one of his upcoming shows (tour poster below) which will feature the line-up that played on the record.


WATCH: Deep Sea Arcade | Granite City Girls

Deep Sea Arcade round out their massive year with another single from their Outlands, a record that sounds like a whole album of singles. Granite City Girls is packed with footage from their recent tours in a suitably hazy, psych pop filtered style.

The band are about to head out on a national tour to celebrate the single release:

  • Fri 9th Nov – The Corner Hotel, Melbourne
  • Fri 16th Nov – The Zoo, Brisbane
  • Thur 22nd Nov – Uni Bar (All Ages), Adelaide
  • Fri 23rd Nov – The Rosemount Hotel, Perth
  • Fri 30th Nov – The Metro )All Ages), Sydney

WATCH: Jen Cloher | Mount Beauty

 Jen Cloher has a new album In Blood Memory due out early in 2013 and here’s the first taste of how it will sound. Mount Beauty shifts from tender folk tinged pop beginnings to a swinging, swagger of a rock song with a bunch of country flavours added into the mix.

Jen Cloher and Courtney Barnett are doing a split 7″ tour over the next month, see dates below..
