06 Sep Ripe Guest Mix with Flamingo Jones



Melbourne-based Caribbean/psychedelic beat maker Nick Bond (aka Flamingo Jones) has kindly sent us this guest mix, titled ‘Crazy Afro-Cuban adventure’. A showcase for Nick’s incredible mixing chops and sharp ear for Islander jams, it’s perfect to pair with the increasingly tropical temperatures across the country right now.

There are currently no Flamingo Jones shows or releases lined up until early next year. Until then, hopefully Nick will be welcoming summer with a DJ set somewhere near you.

06 Sep Trading Tunes with Thigh Master




Brisbane garage band Thigh Master and their instant jam ‘Head Of The Witch‘ have been a Ripe favourite since 201, and having recently been signed with Brisbane label Tenth Court they have returned with strong single releases ‘Company‘ and ‘Canned Opening‘. Their upcoming debut LP Early Times is set to be released October 7th through Coolin’ By Sound (AUS/NZ) & Bruit Direct Disques (Rest of World).

Before they play this week at Bigsound 2016 in Brisbane, founding members Matthew Ford & Patrick Byron have sent us tunes from five of their favourite bands from five different Australian cities.

 

Brisbane: Blank Realm – ‘Reach You On The Phone’

Patrick: Best band in Brisbane ever? (Sorry Go-Betweens & Razar). I could have included so many of Blank Realm‘s songs here… However the film clip features many friends and a claymation telephone. Music for grown ups.

Hobart: Treehouse – ‘Stop The Ocean’

Matthew: I have a big ole soft spot for Treehouse. They were the first touring band that I organised a ‘proper’ show for in Brisbane after a couple years of putting on bands under my sharehouse. Thankfully that was the first of many times they have played up here, leaving me in awe every time. We all didn’t think they could ever top their Gathering The Dreams tape but did so with the new Centre of Their World tape.

Sydney: Dry Finish – ‘String Me Along’

Patrick: From the excellent Paradise Daily stable. The synth line is as equally great and annoying, which is a quality that should really be aspired to. If you don’t like this song you’re lost to me. Hopefully this lot can live in the same city long enough to make an LP.

Melbourne: Terry – ‘Hot Heads’

Patrick: Melbourne, so many great bands but these angels are right up the top of the pile. The amount of time we’ve joked about wearing matching ‘uniforms’ on stage… You watch Terry do it and realise you’re never going to pull it off.

Adelaide: Wireheads – ‘Dedication’

Matthew: Tenth Court started doing vinyl LP releases basically because of Wireheads, and they’re also why I have continued to happily run this lightly idiotic operation. Dom Trimboli is the songwriter of our generation and a tip top human being. This track is an anthem.

 



B I G S O U N D 2016
Sep 7th, 2016 – The New Globe Theatre @ 8:50pm Sep 9th, 2016 – Tenth Court + BSR Shindig @ The Haunt 7pm

02 Sep Premiere: Suiix – ‘Pacific Dreamer’




It’s finally the start of spring, but I can’t help feeling that Sarah Jullienne, AKA Suiix from Sydney, recorded the angelic ‘Pacific Dreamer‘ during Autumn, the season where we are relaxed from summer but the inevitable cold of winter is just around the corner. Although it doesn’t get that cold in Sydney, Sarah says she was watching the ’70s Russian film Rusolochka while writing ‘Pacific Dreamer’, which explains the dreary atmosphere and sirens at the start.

Sarah also told us that it’s about that feeling you get when you are helplessly swept away when falling for someone, and the impending dread of emotions that follow that realisation. She encapsulates that state of concern perfectly with the euphoria throughout ‘Pacific Dreamer’. The song has the airy vocals of Julianna Barwick, the bleakness of Grouper, and the bold production of Zola Jesus. In the end, it’s a unique package, especially in Australia, where the dark and moody acts aren’t as common as I’d like.

‘Pacific Dreamer’ will feature on an upcoming debut EP. Until then, you can catch her at BigSound in Brisbane next week playing at the Heya Bar on Wednesday night at 8:20pm.

26 Aug Premiere: Backyard – ‘Best View of Dean St.’






Melbourne dadwave (yes, dolewave has evolved to dadwave in 2016) band Backyard have kindly let us premiere their second single ‘Best View of Dean St.‘ from their upcoming debut album. It’s instantly calming, and I want to hear the full album right now. Unfortunately I don’t know when the album is due out, but I thought I’d spend some time at least trying to work out which Dean Street they’re referring to…

*Insert Law & Order theme song before resuming ‘Best View Of Dean St’ on repeat*

So, the song was mixed at Lone Palm Studios in Echo Part, Los Angeles. But it is apparently about Kadric‘s optimistic view of his time in country NSW, where there appears to be eighteen streets spelt Dean (and not Deane). The photograph used for the song features reasonably lush green hills with – potentially – Dean St down the bottom somewhere.

The first six streets I found are in Granville, Greystanes, Strathfield, Caringbah, West Pennant Hills and Croydon – all suburbs which are part of Sydney itself. The next two, in Wollongong and Warrawong, are more beach towns than country towns. The town of Wanaaring looks awesome as fuck, but it’s in the desert. North Tamworth has the background hills, but they are too pointy and not softly rolling like those in the photograph.

While the next six in West Bathurst, Matong, Molong, Mitchell, Casino, and St Georges Basin are all probably country towns, their Dean Streets are more like tiny little avenues than streets – they’re not exactly worth writing a song about having a great view of them. I’ve been to Tocumwal a few times and they don’t have hills, just strawberry fields (zingggg).

Which leaves Wodonga’s equivalent to Shelbyville – Albury. Albury has the rolling hills and a WW1 monument conveniently located in a similar position to the one in the photo. Which begs the question; what’s so special about that Dean St? Which begs the answer: the Indian Chimney Restaurant. They take a while to cook and aren’t huge portions, but dear lord everything there is bloody delicious. As for the location of the photographer, my guess is on top of the Eastern Hill Lookout.

I could be totally wrong after all that investigating, but at least I got to listen to the wonderful ‘Best View of Dean St.’ thirty times in the name of research.

The single launch for ‘Best View of Dean St.’ is on Friday the 2nd of September, at Woody’s Bar in Collingwood, Melbourne.

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.
