18 Aug Video Premiere: The Vacant Smiles – ‘Drenched’



 

Melbourne psych-garage band The Vacant Smiles have sent us their new video clip for the immediately exhilarating single ‘Drenched‘. Back in February ‘Drenched’ appeared on our radar and made it to #5 in our weekly playlist.

The single is from their second album You’re Not Really Here. It marked the return of The Vacant Smiles after a seven-month break while their singer was living in Amsterdam.

The video features a heavy montage of lo-fi shots around Swanston St, Flinders St and the Yarra River in Melbourne’s CBD. A man wearing a lizard mask, playing an acoustic guitar, drifts around the city late at night appearing both physically and mentally lost. While the scenario may seem like an unrealistic joke, the fact that barely anyone in the streets notices him, even with a camera following him around, tells you that this kind of behaviour is common in a city – an interesting commentary by the group.

The Vacant Smiles currently don’t have any live shows planned, but you can check out You’re Not Really Here over on bandcamp.

02 Aug Trading Tunes with CC:DISCO!




In this edition of Trading Tunes we had a chat with Melbourne radio and DJ veteran CC:DISCO! – one of the most respected voices in the country when it comes to house and disco music. Between playing almost every festival in the country and hosting Smoke and Mirrors on PBS FM, she’s found the time to send us her five of her favourite ’80s tunes.

You can catch her alongside Funkineven, Damiano Von Erckert, Darshan Jesrani, Otologic, Edd Fisher, Jnett, Simon Caldwell, Babicka, Ben Fester, Prequel, Adi Toohey, Andee Frost and many more at up the upcoming Fuego Revolutions series of club events, presented by Bacardi in Sydney and Melbourne this month.
LINK: BACARDl Fuego Revolutions – 01 w/ Funkineven aka Steven Julien // Simon Caldwell B2B JNETT + CC:DISCO!

 

Richie Rome – ‘Deep’

“I love this record. Most people know Richie Rome from the being the man behind The Ritchie Family, but he was actually producing lots of other music under a couple of aliases. “Deep” has to be the pick from this record also titled Deep. It’s so ’80s with a full classical music style arrangement, then add some synth and a talkbox and welcome to the ’80s ay.”

Thelma Houston – ‘You Used To Hold Me’

“How about that time Thelma [Houston] turned around and ditched the disco for a bit and made AMAZING boogie. This has to be my favourite Thelma tune, the raw emotion on this matched with the sax is out of this world. A slow jam yes, but played at the right moment on the dance floor, it’s incredible in a club.”

Larry Heard – ‘Stars’

Larry Heard, basically one of the most influential producers of house music was always way ahead of his time. Larry, much like the Japanese producers from the late ’70s, early ’80s, was a leader in this field creating music you could release today. Timeless tunes. Larry was, and always will be known for being a pioneer of house music. From tunes like this to “What About This Love“, his depth in his productions are so inspiring, and you can hear real emotion in his music.

The System – ‘Almost Grown’

“Having only recently come across this record, this is a really good example of how broad an artist was in the ’80s. You got some songs sounding like Tame Impala, and then a bunch more sounding like they came straight from Larry Heard. Amazing record which is being repressed from Jamie Tiller‘s label Music from Memory.”

Kimiko Kasai – ‘I Felt Ya Glancin’

“Let’s end on the high note, a tune you will have stuck in your head for days on end with the ‘bow bow ba bow”. Recently in Japan, I was hoping to come across a few of these and certainly came back with two (just in case). UPBEAT as hell and it’s a joy to play out. “Ba ba baaa bow ba ba ba bowwww” Its fun, cheesy as hell, but a tune’s a tune right?”

28 Jul Trading Tunes with Chook Race




In this edition of Trading Tunes we had a chat with Rob Remedios from Chook Race about their mammoth year ahead, and in turn he sent us some of his favourite music that has come out of Brisbane – befitting Chook Race’s sunny, garage sound.

Chook Race have been making multiple appearances in our weekly Ripe Guide to Australia’s Best New Music, and last week they made it to Number 2 with the release of their new, sensational song ‘Hard To Clean‘. With their new LP Around The House due to come out September 2nd via Brisbane label Tenth Court and US label Trouble In Mind Records, Chook Race are set for a big breakout summer later this year. Alongside their LP release they’ll also be touring the US from September to October, with one last Australian tour date in Melbourne before they fly off – find their tour date listing below.

Rob: I’ve never spent a great deal of time in Brisbane, but constantly find myself drawn to Brisbane music; from The Purple Hearts to Thigh Master and a whole heap of stuff in between. I think it probably started in Year 7 when I first heard Custard’sGirls Like That (Don’t Go For Guys Like Us)”… Has a song about unrequited love ever made you feel that good? I think not!

 

The Saints – ‘One Way Street’

Rob: An obvious choice perhaps, but if this doesn’t make you want to pick up a guitar and stomp around then I don’t know what will.

The Go Betweens – ‘Don’t Let Him Come Back’

Rob: What a hit. A great song with a great story. And a ripping little harmonica solo too. I also particularly enjoy the sound of this recording. Makes my ears feel good.

Clang – ‘Security Man’

Rob: Cheer up, mr security man.

A Leap In The Dark – ‘Samurai’

Rob: Who the hell doesn’t want to be a Samurai?! What a gem. Found this one via the marvellous Wallaby Beat blog, which seems to have slowed down these days unfortunately.

Custard – ‘Pinball Lez’

Rob: My favourite Custard song this week. Again, a great pop song and a great story; all delivered with a knowing smile. “The casinos are rigged to beat you!”

15 Jul Ripe Guest Mix with Christopher Port




Christopher Port from Melbourne caught our attention a few months ago with his polished live sets around town and single release ‘Bump‘. Today he’s releasing his debut five track EP Vetement and to celebrate he has also sent us a guest mix.

Christopher: It’s a 36 minute long mix, full of tunes that are different to the other mixes I’ve done in the past. It’s more subdued, focused around beautiful harmonies and melodies instead of drums. All the tracks have a melancholic quality to them which I love.

Christopher’s been a drummer for Airling and #1 Dads, and has taken that strong rhythmic and methodical approach to his EP – creating layers of sharp and interesting arrangements. If you enjoy the rhythmic led electronic music of Factory Floor or even Lunice and Hyetal, then Christopher Port will intrigue you.

You can catch Christopher Port playing at the Volumes Festival in Sydney on Friday the 26th of August.
