11 Aug Trading Tunes with School Damage


On the 2nd of June the Melbourne band School Damage released one of the most addictive Australian albums this year via the always reliable local music label Chapter Music. The self-titled album is packed with immediately enjoyable singles such as ‘The Bus That Couldn’t Slow Down‘, ‘Tall Poppies‘ and ‘Try Something New‘. It’s quite a remarkable album, that captures all the innocent vibes typically found on a memorable debut. Although, the four piece band isn’t entirely made up of rookies — Carolyn Hawkins is from Chooke Race and Parsnip, and Jake Robertson is in Ausmuteants, Hierophants and Frowning Clouds. That experience and new band enthusiasm bodes well throughout the album’s 13 tracks, which all feel fully fleshed out yet still remain raw and in the moment.

The band are about to embark on a semi-national Australian tour and have sent us their favourite sad songs of all time. Love it, enjoy!

Television Personalities – ‘A Life of Her Own’

Jake: “Nobody wants to grow up. Nobody wants a crappy life. The lyrics in this song are very hard-hitting, reminiscent of The Rolling Stones – ‘Mother’s little Helper‘, but it’s more than just the lyrics that are drenched in sorrow. The guitar in the 2nd verse kinda sounds like somebody crying. There is so much distance in this song, makes me wanna shed a lil’ tear.”

The Shangri-Las – ‘You Cheated, You Lied’

Dani: “The Shangri-Las have so many great melodramatic songs. Mostly about love and heartbreak. This song is less melodramatic than the others — really! Have you heard ‘Leader of the Pack‘? It’s sad in that uplifting way, acknowledging that something can be a cathartic release. Even though it’s sad –maybe desperate?! ‘Oh please try to love me / Love me like I love you’ — it’s still sassy. ‘Love is something you know nothing about.’ Yeah, take that you lying cheat!”

The Beach Boys – ‘Til I Die’

Jeff: “Realising how small you are in the grand scheme of the universe might be depressing at first. The way Brian Wilson conveys those feelings of insignificance and mortality gets me every time. Brian set out to recreate ‘the swell of emotions’ (surfs up!) he felt in the beach one night pensively pondering death. Take away a man’s sanity (and orchestra) and leave him to his own devices at home and this is what you get. Simple, honest, beautiful music.”

Kevin Ayers ‎– ‘All This Crazy Gift of Time’

Carolyn: “I don’t know if this song makes me cry from happiness or sadness, I think it’s both. It communicates something about the passing of time and life that I can’t put my finger on… the feeling of experiencing the past, present and future all at the same time, the feeling that life is long and short, big and small, the feeling of letting go of things but also, like, holding onto them forever.”

Nico — ‘These Days’

Carolyn: “Oh man. What an absolute doozy – a total tearjerker. Such a perfect, tragic, beautiful track from a really amazing album. The first time I heard this I was listening to Triple R while doing my year 12 Geography homework and I think my heart burst. Even after so many years of listening to this song, I still get a lump in my throat when I hear it.”

06 Aug Trading Tunes with Gold Class


The Melbourne post-punk band Gold Class caught our attention in 2015 with a string of immediately striking singles, such as ‘Life As A Gun‘ and ‘Furlong‘, before releasing the sterling debut album It’s You.

Now the tightly entwined foursome are set to release their sophomore album Drum on Friday the 18th of August via Barely Dressed and Remote Control Records. ‘Twist In The Dark‘ is the first single and it proves that the band haven’t lost any of that tense chemistry. The lead singer Adam Curley has been quoted saying “at its core, it’s just something you can dance to,” which gives me a sense that the primal nature of the band took the reigns on this sophomore effort — and avoiding the traps of sounding formulaic and calculated is generally a positive step towards creating timeless post-punk.

You can pre-order Drum over here. Until then band member Evan Purdey has sent us five tunes he’s currently enjoying.

Drum by Gold Class track-list:
1. Twist In The Dark
2. Rose Blind
3. Get Yours
4. Trouble Fun
5. Bully
6. Thinking Of Strangers
7. We Were Never Too Much
8. Mercurian
9. Place We Go
10. Lux

The Walker Brothers – ‘Nite Flights’

“The suggested outline for this playlist was some kind of cohesive theme. I was thinking since we made quite a ‘nocturnal’ album, a ‘night-themed’ playlist would be suitable. This song is about as far as my fried imagination took me with that concept. I’ve been revisiting Scott Walker a bit lately after a couple of years off, and Nite Flights sounds positively chipper up against his recent output. It was all Mussolini and Elvis dreaming of 9/11 from here on out.”

The Bodies – ‘Lest We Forget’

“We toured with The Bodies in the UK last year and they blew us away. They’ve since gone on hiatus/been reborn as the formidable Culture CT, but they shall remain our partners in crime whatever guise they take. ‘Lest We Forget‘ is such a killer tune. That first yelp from Maxwell gets me every time. ”

RVG – ‘Vincent Van Gogh’

“I’m just one voice in a large chorus singing the praises of RVG lately (and I’ve already added them in a heap of playlists, so definitely at risk of repeating myself here) but A Quality Of Mercy has dominated my listening habits this year, in that ‘feels like I’ve known this music forever’ kind of way. Romy’s songwriting/guitar playing/stage presence is totally captivating.”

Carter Tutti ‎– ‘Coolicon’

“I love how alien everything sounds in this track, like some kind of Close Encounters transmission. I really loved the Carter Tutti Void records but it’d be exciting to hear a whole new album of this kinda stuff. I’m sure they’re entirely interested in my opinion of their career path.”

Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids — ‘Rhapsody In Berlin (Part I & II)’

“Relentlessly good. Encountered this in the tour van earlier this year, another in a series of ‘Tour Manager randomly introduces crucial listening material.’”
