Luna Ghost – ‘Future End’

luna ghost-ep-artwork-cover

The psych, noise rock and shoegaze melting pot of Melbourne has spat forth another high voltage contender – Luna Ghost! The four piece have released their self titled EP (download here) featuring lead track ‘The Sea’. Since unveiling the single in November, Luna Ghost have gigged with The Citradels, Flyying Colours, The Grand Rapids, Hideous Towns, Lunaire and Miniatures. Plus Happy have given them a big wrap! If you need some more convincing, get your head around the apocalyptic guitar tones of ‘Future End’.

DMA’s – ‘Feels Like 37′

dma's-live

I went along to DMA’s first show at Deus last Friday night, having heard nothing except the fan fave ‘Delete‘. From the artwork I half expected a hip hop show. But nope, the Sydney trio are anything but. In fact, there’s a distinct British feel to their debut EP which is out now (grabbit at iTunes). Opener ‘Feels Like 37′ comes across like 90s Oasis on steroids. Judging by the manic response from the crowd (as pictured), it’s fair to say these lads will do very well for themselves.

Gazar Strips – ‘Bee Mantis’

Sonic Masala Records gear up for their next release (following Roku Music) with Brisbane’s Gazar Strips. This one’s nightmarishly dark, it’s best listened to while gripping your teddy bear. Having said that, it’s also rather impressive! Grab it from April 26 on Gazar Strips’ second EP ‘Sparkling’.

Creepoid – ‘Wet Bread’

CREEPOID - 'WET'

Here’s your nostalgia rock fix for the day! Graveface are preparing for the release of Creepoid‘s new EP ‘Wet’, out on Record Store Day (April 19) on 12inch vinyl exclusively. There’s four songs on the record, with an etching on the b-side. And wow, that artwork is creepy! ‘Wet Bread’ is a not-so-subtle head nod to Nirvana, complete with slacker vocals and overdriven guitars. But full credit to the Philly foursome, they do it well.

Serfs – ‘Marijuana Mom’

SERFS - 'MARIJUANA MOM'

It doesn’t get much more colourful and fun than this! That’s if the song title didn’t catch your eye. The North Carolina garage-gazers are releasing ‘Marijuana Mom’ on forthcoming split 7inch. For the video Serfs “constructed a giant, plastic American flag and filled it with hot dogs and beer cans, and invited all of their friends to go wild in front of a green screen. The result is a five-minute visual cluster-cuss with skeletons, Fender guitars, a death scene, a breath-holding competition, crying, glamour poses, TV smashing, crowd surfing and a unicorn.”

Greta Mob Feat. Spencer P Jones – ‘Gypsy Town’ (Revisited)

GRETA MOB - 'GYPSY TOWN REVISITED'

Music legend Spencer P Jones (known for his work with Beasts Of Bourbon, The Johnnys and Paul Kelly among others) has teamed up with Greta Mob for a reworking of their track ‘Gypsy Town’. The Sydney-based rock act had a chat with SBWR last November before unveiling their debut LP ‘Let The Sunburnt Country Burn‘. The original version appeared on the record but this amped-up incarnation offers even more ass kickin’ rock n’ roll! Grab it on the new EP ‘Gypsy Town Revisited‘ (available from March 28 via Greta Mob Music). Side note, ten points for the artwork!

Ceremony – ‘Until Forever’

CEREMONY - 'BIRDS' [EP]

Just in – the latest single from Ceremony titled ‘Until Forever‘, taken from the forthcoming five track EP ‘Birds’ (out this May through Emerald & Doreen Records)! Ceremony is the solo act of Fredericksburg’s John Fedowitz who released his last album ‘Distance’ in December, regular readers may remember our chat. Once again John has teamed up with his former Skywave bandmate Oliver Ackermann (of A Place To Bury Strangers) to help out with mastering duties. ‘Until Forever’ is an uncompromising reverb rocker with a 60s pop melody, one of Ceremony’s more catchy creations!
