New Music Mondays, August 31st Gold Class – Furlong ‘Furlong’ is the latest cut from Gold Class’ forthcoming debut album It’s You, out September 4th. Of the song singer Adam Curley says, “Lyrically, the song kind of formed around the line “bad from the neck down”, which I carried around in my head for a while we were writing it. It’s about always feeling as if you have to improve yourself, about misguided good intentions—having them and then fucking them up because you can’t stick to them”. Lucianblomkamp – Far Away The first taste of his impending body of work, Lucianblomkamp has created a beautiful track that highlights his abilities as a multi-instrumentalist and producer. His new material also sees a further emphasis on song-writing, with his incredibly emotive tones appearing from behind the shadows of his earlier work. Ash Grunwald – Second Guess After returning from a massive tour of Canada, Ash Grunwald has release ‘Second Guess’, the latest single from forthcoming eighth studio album Now. The track is a true Grunwald track with an overflow of groove from the get-go, paired with tight percussion and a unique moog synth bass line. Big Scary – Organism Returning with an unexpected new flavour to their sonic palette, front man/producer Tom Iansek says of ‘Organsism’, ” “It’s moving back towards Jo and I as a band and the dynamic between us. It’s refocusing on the duo. With this has come a lot of stripping back of the non-essential, using less to create more. Using new and unfamiliar textures but keeping the performance firmly grounded in that of two people playing.” The Mary Goldsmiths – What The Priest Said The latest single from Melbourne five-piece The Mary Goldsmiths – the bastard love child of the local rock scene, featuring members of The Pretty Littles and Northeast Party House – is a banging introduction of what we can expect from the group’s debut, self-titled album, set for independent release August 27th. Owen Rabbit – Holy Holy Written and recorded in his home studio in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, Owen Rabbit’s latest track combines themes of jazz, soul and blues with structured arrangements of contemporary electronica. “I wrote Holy Holy about my mental state and abusing my health as a means of self medication. Without a god and a guided sense of morality it can be hard to find a compelling reason to be healthy. Art and creation from pain has been a cathartic sort of therapy, and has given me acceptance.” Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
