Miserable – Halloween Dream

May 27, 2014

a1872256756_10

Ex-Whirr vocalist Kristina Esfandiari’s new project. It’s really good and a lot darker.

Oh yeah and thanks again to everyone who’s still subscribed to this blog and still interested in our (mostly my) music taste.

What Price, Wonderland? – It Is True It Is Shakey

January 21, 2014

a3398832931_2

This is some seriously underrated shit. I wasn’t in Melbourne when they played but I heard it was not well attended and that makes me sad.

They’re kind of like the British Sinaloa. Which is another band (I think?) that’s not together any more. What I’m trying to get at is emo is dead to me now.

The Bilinda Butchers – Regret, Love, Guilt, Dreams

January 20, 2014

Some San Francisco Dream Pop/Shoegaze/easy listening/whatever. The song “Careless Teens” is pretty cool to listen to with headphones on a mostly empty evening train.

Adam/Kill the Zodiac is a very cool dude who’s been up here before. It’s probably my favourite ambient project. These are two new songs.

Edison – Astro EP

January 10, 2014

a3725589150_2

I meant to post this when Loma Prieta came to town and I was really excited about Melbourne Screamo but then I forgot. They played with Loma at the Gasometer (RIP) and it was probably the best set at the show because they didn’t have vocals for Loma’s slot which was weird. And because Edison is really good live. I’m not sure if they’re still around, I can’t find a Facebook for them and my visa ran out so I don’t live in Melbourne any more.

CELESTE – ANIMALE(S) Part I & II

January 9, 2014

celeste-animale

We’ve had CELESTE on here before, ex-Mihai Edrisch members, et cetera et cetera. CELESTE keeps getting darker and darker every record and normally I’m not into the super heavy shit but they pull it off and you should really give these guys a listen if you have ignored them for the past five or whatever.

P.S. Worldpolice is never dead.

HṚṢṬA – Discography

July 20, 2012

We took a brief hiatus from new releases we like to “classics” we like. HRSTA for all of you who aren’t familiar is a project from Mike Moya. He left GY!BE (and then came back when they got back together). HRSTA uses a lot of whispery thin vocals and unconventional sounds, like mock-theremins with a screwdriver on the fretboard of a guitar. Unfortunately it looks like they’re on a bit of a break.
