Hideous Towns – ‘Disquiet Living’ [Album Premiere]

hideous-towns-disquiet-living

We’re celebrating the impending release of Hideous Towns‘ debut album ‘Disquiet Living’ with an exclusive stream (as below)! The Melbourne dream pop champions impressed with their 2014 self-titled EP and the lead singles ‘Don’t Forget’, ‘Wake Us’ and ‘Value’. The album delivers that intangible Aussie punk attitude; its raw, take it or leave it mentality makes ‘Disquiet Living’ sound honest and immediate. There’s a blend of new wave tracks (‘Waratah’, ‘Coincidents’), post-punk/kraut rock moments (‘Glass Curtain’, ‘Don’t Forget’) and spacious jangly pop gems (‘Fantasy’, ‘Lion’).

The album was produced by Matthew Hosking, known for his work as one half of VHS Dream. Hosking has had a hand in producing several likeminded local acts including Contrast, Bloodhounds On My Trail, Lowtide, Miniatures, and Glaciers. ‘Disquiet Living’ is an album with depth and character, recommended listening. Pick it up this Friday (November 25) from Lost And Lonesome (home to Parading, Lucy Roleff, and Lowtide). Melburnians can catch the album launch at Bella Union with Contrast, Mares, Splendid, and the Icypoles on December 2 (details).

Bloodhounds On My Trail – ‘Haunted Isles’ EP

Moon Sounds Records have delivered the latest EP from Melbourne shoegaze band Bloodhounds On My Trail (get it here)! The ‘Haunted Isles’ EP features the lead tunes ‘Over The Wall’ and the recently public single ‘Places Like This’. The four piece; Johnny Green (guitar, vocals), Chris Donaldson (guitar), Nik Donaldson (drums) and Ché Walden (bass), delivered their last EP ‘Escape II’ in late 2015. ‘Haunted Isles’ is a solid collection that builds on their widescreen moody rock sound. BOMT might be Australia’s contemporary answer to Chapterhouse or Ride; a provocative mix of melody and noise.

Parading – ‘Jungle Songs’

Parading share their love for “Galaxie 500-cum-Mary Chain pop” on their second full length ‘Jungle Songs’ (out now through Lost And Lonesome). The Melbourne four piece cover loads of noisy ground; from psych-tinged rockers to Sonic Youth sounding slow burners. Fellow label mate Alana West (Hideous Towns) also lends her backing vocals to a number of tracks. It’s an impressive listen with a Paul Kelly cover in there too. Thumbs up!

Flyying Colours – ‘Mindfullness’

In case you missed it, Flyying Colours have officially given us their debut full length ‘Mindfullness’ (out now via Club AC30). The Melbourne shoegazers cut their teeth with two solid EPs and a string of local shows (with a UK/European tour about to kick off). The album opener ‘It’s Tomorrow Now’ is a must listen, supported by the second single ‘Long Holiday’ and the title track. Flyying Colours strike a balance between the heights of their debut EP and the rockers of the ‘Roygbiv’ EP. It’s a relentless record that will be a crowd pleaser. With a fresh line-up in place (two new members), and plenty of new material to showcase on the road, the UK tour should be awesome. It’s hard to believe that Flyying Colours’ ‘Wavygravy’ debut was three years ago! *mind blown*
