TIMBERWOLF

Thursday Mar 12, 2015

7pm to late

Wonder-folk artist-on-the-rise Timberwolf is excited to announce his new single ‘Fallen Sun’. To coincide with the release, the 23-year-old singer-songwriter from Adelaide will play a string of shows, including coveted appearances at Festival Of The Sun, AWME, Big Pineapple Gorgeous Festival and more.

Timberwolf’s ‘Fallen Sun’ is brought to life by the artist’s smoky vocals and luscious arrangements, but it’s the approach to the folk genre – the combination of banjo, disco drum beats, and an undeniable warmth – that makes the track truly unique. Produced by the acclaimed Mark Myers (The Middle East), ‘Fallen Sun’ is an ode to an ill-fated love; a vortex of harmonies and galloping beats that parallel the ups and downs of the narrative. However, at the heart of Timberwolf as an artist is his ability to connect; ‘Fallen Sun’ is likely to stay with you long after the song is over.

Despite only forming in early 2013, the singer-songwriter boasts an enviable CV. This year alone has seen him support Mikhael Paskalev, Holy Holy, Little May, Dustin Tebbutt and more. Timberwolf’s self-produced, debut EP ‘Man & Moon’ included tracks ‘Into The Cold’, ‘Grace’ and ‘Garden’ – all of which hit number 1 on triple j’s Roots ‘N All chart along with solid support from community radio and tastemakers alike. On top of selling out his single and EP launch shows, the artist was featured in Rip It Up Magazine’s ‘Hot Six’ issue, an edition dedicated to six local artists to watch in 2014, also featuring Tkay Maidza, Bad//Dreems & Jesse Davidson.

Titled after his second release from the EP – Get Home To You, this tour is sure to prove why Julian Simonsz is just getting started in the Australian music scene.

With successful shows in Melbourne in 2014 showcasing his self-titled creation which stormed the iTunes charts, the funky tunes, upbeat melodies and stunning acoustic ballads had audiences wanting more. It is now time to take this outside of Melbourne and to reach fans across Australia to witness the live talent that it Julian Simonsz.

GOLDEN AGE OF BALLOONING

Friday Mar 20, 2015

5pm to late

Joining forces to present an excellent night of free live music, Brisbane bands Golden Age of Ballooning and Deena invite you to celebrate the release of their new singles at Black Bear Lodge.

Blending lyrical driven folk with modern psychedelic and classic rock, Brisbane based collective Golden Age of Ballooning present a spell binding mix of old and new.

2015 hails in the collectives brand new single ‘Across the Nation’- an eerily Australian narrative, wrapped in four part harmonies and emotive sing-along vocals, a fine display of the bands song writing maturity and inventiveness.

“A band whose sound captures your imagination and makes you seek them out” – MouthZoff Magazine 2013.

Stepping away from her acoustic-folk sound and with the help of a fully-fledged band behind her, Deena has dived head first into a new musical direction of indie blues-rock. Her sound is bigger, grittier and darker than ever, while never compromising Deena’s dulcet voice – a voice that transmits raw, intense emotion.

AERIALS

Friday Mar 27, 2015

5pm to late

The reputation of these three Brisbane natives has built fast on the back of a live show that is a blistering reminder that rock is still alive in this country. Aerials‘ debut EP received nods from Triple J Unearthed, RAGE and Channel V, and the band wasted no time in hitting the tour circuit with acts such as Calling All Cars, Closure in Moscow and The Red Paintings. Lead single ‘Firefights’ was a rock anthem in rave territory which earned them a Highly Commended from Queensland Music and a headline slot at Bigsound 2014. With Forrester Savell (Dead Letter Circus, Karnivool) returning to the desk, latest single ‘Burn Burn Burn’ is a cathartic stomper channeling the grandeur of The Arcade Fire and the chaos of System of a Down. The band is back on the road in March to showcase the single in the lead up to their new EP ‘Restless’, due for a mid-year release. Aerials are closing out their tour with a sweaty party at Black Bear Lodge with supports from local favourites Interim, Sydney rockers Monks Of Mellonwah and exciting newcomers The Iron Eye. Doors at 7:00pm and the party starts very soon after!

7pm to late

The Audreys are a folk-rock band from Adelaide. You probably know them, they’ve released four albums, won a bunch of awards and toured all ’round the world. There are two of them. Taasha sings and plays tiny guitars and keyboards and Tristan plays normal-sized guitars and doesn’t sing. Sometimes, they tell goofy stories about when they used to be married. They don’t need an excuse to hit the road, but as it happens they want to celebrate the release of their 2014 album “‘Til My Tears Roll Away” on vinyl. Come celebrate with them, who knows what you’ll be in for…

ALL OUR EXES LIVE IN TEXAS

Sunday Apr 19, 2015

7pm to late

Much loved indie-folk band All Our Exes Live In Texas are touring Australia through March and April, playing headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth alongside appearances at Port Fairy, Blue Mountains, Fairbridge and National Folk Festivals.

They are celebrating the release of their new track Sailboat, the second single from their forthcoming debut album. Sailboat has that signature All Our Exes sound – lush harmonies and dreamy melodies – and touches on the melancholy of heartbreak and the hopefulness of new beginnings.

All Our Exes Live in Texas is a fantasy draft of Sydney musical talent – Elana Stone, Katie Wighton, Hannah Crofts & Georgia Mooney – all beautiful performers in their own right, here combining in four-part folk heaven.

On mandolin, ukulele, accordion and guitar, All Our Exes deliver tunes that are clearly crafted with taste, care and skill in the context of a spontaneous, playful and utterly charming live show. With four songwriters and four unique voices, All Our Exes make music that is refreshingly different, drawing influence from traditional four-part harmony and creating a brand new type of modern folk. Fair warning: You’ll need your charisma sunnies or you’ll walk out of the building a little bit in love.

BOO SEEKA

Friday Apr 24, 2015

5pm to late

This hip-hop-psych-soul/dream-tronica project started life as an outlet for a couple of musical experiments, a kind of soul petrie dish, a testing ground for new sounds. And it’s growing, fast. The duo have released their first single ‘Kingdom Leader’. A song that drips sexual foreplay. Builds and builds and subtly massages the soul. A combination of pulsating synth sounds that bed down layered textures of electronic bass and percussive beats. The sonic stimulations throughout the track enthral, and asks you to delve deeper with every second of the song.

The inspiration for ‘Kingdom Leader’ came from a garage sale, well, from a $50 vintage synth, picked up at a garage sale that sparked the first set of tunes. BOO SEEKA have been channelling a few musical spirits in the recording/writing process of the first single and EP, ‘Kingdom Leader’. The layering and experimental beats of Massive Attack, the cool of Mayer Hawthorne and Seed 2.0 Cody Chestnutt’s soulful vocal delivery. BOO SEEKA snaps up melodies and bounces them off hip-hop/R&B driven grooves – and beats that vibe.
