You must not be paying attention if you have any doubt that Australia is having a musical halcyon age lately. Last year's heavies came and conquered fans by the venue-full in the form of Eddy Current Suppression Ring, UV Race, Total Control, Fabulous Diamonds, Blank Realm, etc.
Although I missed Circle Pit's tour-stop in Stockton due to their car troubles, the 2011 Aussie tide's just about to come in, with Alps reaching our shores first. Their...er, his style is melodramatic and minimal, transcending the trappings of singer/songwriter much like the way his touring mate Michael Beach (of Electric Jellyfish) does, and bears hints of influence of NZ 80's/90's 4-track bedroom-self-recordists and early Tuxedomoon and affiliated bands (such as Kaa Antilope which provided a killer segueway if I do say so myself). If "Keyboard Cat" can become a meme to millions, why not this magical musical ferret playing the Alps' hit song, "Life is Taking"?
For every organ based song, Alps delivers on guitar, too!
Catch more Alps info here...
Coming later this summer and early fall from Australia...
Bed Wettin' Bad Boys
& hopefully more!
And finally...just in time for the 4th of July, "spirit punk" erupts from its Stockton, CA, epicenter in the supremely fuckophonic braincell devastation of Godspeed 209.
You can keep up with their song-a-day-so-far pace here...
Fans of the Wheelchair Full of Old Men label should be majorly stoked!
