GIG REVIEW: Methyl Ethel at the Howler (Thursday, February 23rd)

Perth natives Methyl Ethel recently exploded with popularity as their 2016 debut album “Oh Inhuman Spectacle” propelled them into fame, producing triple J favourites such as “Rogues”, and the ninety-seventh place in the Hottest-100-of-2015 tune, “Twilight Driving”. After being signed to 4AD records amongst the ranks of Future Islands, and Purity Ring and completing a US tour, the band returned to their home soil to promote and reveal previously unheard songs to be featured on their follow-up album “Everything Is Forgotten” for a show at Brunswick’s The Howler. Supported by similarly dream-pop bands, Quivers and Totally Mild, the night was sure to be a laid-back evening of unique art-pop. Read more …

PODCAST: Extra B Radio Interview: Basenji & Swindail

In an Extra B Radio first, we got to sit down to talk with Australian taste-makers and tune breakers Seb (Basenji) and Sid (swindail) for a quick chat about tour things, clothes things and music things during their stop at Monash for the Homework tour hosted by V Energy Drink Australia. Due to a technical error, we have unfortunately lost the interview with Swindail, which not only included cake tastings but also a surprise cameo from Wave Racer! Bummer! I’m kicking myself over it, but hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to interview them again as they continue to slay. Incredibly talented producers and lovely human beings.
