Tune. New Sounds for a Week of Inclement Weather: 15 Sept

In the Melbourne streets this week, I believe we’re all doing our best not to drown. Social diaries have been scratched. Spring is remiss and we’ve collectively become a pack of cancellation specialists. Meanwhile,  three of my best friends are on separate, wildly exciting holidays, and another has just returned from Burning Man. Meanwhile, I have a house renovation that’s sitting under water and FML. Here’s some new music excellence to amuse you and appease me, this week’s Ms Debbie Downer. 

Venus II: I Want U 4 Myself

Venus II is an Australia dream-team pairing of Jarrad Brown (Eagle & The Worm/Dorsal Fins) and Ryan Grieve (Canyons). We’re loving the Picnic at Hanging Rock/Virgin Suicides vibe in this new video, filmed by Young Black Youth in Adelaide. The song is from Venus II’s recently released debut album called ‘Inside Your Sun’. Catch them live this Sat 17 Sep at Newtown Social Club in Sydney with GL.

Kings of Leon: Waste a Moment

Kings of Leon (pictured at top) have released their brand new single Waste a Moment’.

Two Door Cinema Club: Bad Decisions

Wine and bad decisions. They go hand in hand really, hmmmm? “Save me.” This is the official new video for Two Door Cinema Club‘s smasher ‘Bad Decisions’. The new album Gameshow is out in 14 October.

Deap Vally: Gonnawanna

“Piss funny.” – The Garb Wire

I am obsessed with this video. Indie projects are so much fun because we can actually just do what we wanna. Cackles aplenty in this brilliant clip from Deap Vally, and it all starts from 00:09. Fun rock trivia fact: the dancing yeti of the video, Eva’s husband, happens to be none other than Sebastian Grainger of Death From Above 1979, with whom DEAP VALLY will tour the US in October. Their new album Femejism is out on Friday 16 September.

The Ruminaters: Bad Bad Things

Check out this 360° video from Melbourne punks The Ruminaters.

Castlecomer: Judy

Eclectic rock band Castlecomer explore a taboo relationship from the perspective of the weaker party in their new single Judy. Directed by Ben Sheen, the video is playful on the surface, yet characterised by a dark, psychedelic edge. Judy was a shining light of hope on my drab existence today.

Their new EP All Of The Noise, is out on 7 October, and coincides with an East Coast tour in November. See dates below.

CRX: Ways to Fake It

CRX is the newly formed Los Angeles band founded by The Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi. The first single Ways to Fake It is off their debut album New Skin, out on 28 October, and was produced by Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, who recently produced Iggy Pop’s Post Pop Depression. 

Fascinator: Skin Within

New York-based, Australian-bred eccentric Fascinator returns with his new single, ‘Skin Within. Here is an artist who is on the verge of greatness. Apparently people call that ‘eccentric’? We LOVE Fascinator.

SOHN: Signal

Signal is SOHN’s first release since his celebrated debut album Tremors in 2014. It signals a subtle new direction for SOHN, and was written and recorded in Vienna, London and Los Angeles. However the signature sonic flourishes remain. Annnnd… breathe.

Against Me: 333

333 is taken from Against Me’s highly anticipated forthcoming studio album titled Shape Shift With Me.

Directed by Ione Skye and starring her friend of 20 years, Natasha Lyonne of Orange Is The New Black, as well as Welsh actor Andrew Howard who plays an electric, 1960s-inspired husband, the video for 333 illuminates a push/pull relationship between repression and free sexuality.
