THE COATHANGERS

Friday Oct 07, 2016

Open at 7pm

The Coathangers return to Australia off the back of their Billboard cracking’ new album ‘Nosebleed Weekend’, and a national US tour with global punk heavy weights Refused.

‘Nosebleed Weekend’ came hot on the heels of The Coathangers highly praised and raucous 2014 release ‘Suck My Shirt,’ but with a difference. Nosebleed Weekend is the first album The Coathangers have made outside of their native Atlanta, and with this expanded location has come broadened horizons musically. The Coathangers new release still manages to contain the simmering vocal intensity, serrated but catchy instrumentation and neo- grunge tone beloved by their fans, while incorporating more sophisticated song writing, expanded musical concepts with a shine of maturity.

The new album shows that 10 years on The Coathangers are still rocking, stronger than ever.

Recorded in North Hollywood at Valentine Recording Studios with Nic Jodoin,(Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Nightbeats), ‘Nosebleed Weekend’ contains something for every Rock n Roll and Coathangers fan new and old.

The Coathangers will make their Australian festival debut at Yours & Owls Festival, along side five shows across the east coast of Australia and for the first time, appearing for two shows in New Zealand.

LEAH FLANAGAN ALBUM LAUNCH

Thursday Oct 20, 2016

Doors open at 7pm

Saudades – it almost sounds like a sigh. An audible release of emotion, tinged with regret and a melancholy kind of pleasure. This wonderfully untranslatable word, made famous in song by Cesária Évora, conjures a tangle of feelings that only the Portuguese, in their wisdom of the heart’s joys and sorrows, could name with just one word. It is the perfect title for this elegant collection of heartfelt songs by rising Australian songwriter, singer and sometime saltwater ukulele whisperer, Leah Flanagan. Leah dives in deep with Saudades, a suite of songs that capture a full repertoire of the emotions that we carry into our relationships, romantic and otherwise. ALL of the feels…

Leah will be backed by her incredible band, Adam Pringle, Evan Mannell and Tim Curnick, all legends of the Sydney music scene.

Supported by Luke Daniel Peacock.

Some know LDP as ‘Bird’, the keys player from the critically acclaimed rock outfit Halfway. He is also the creator of the music project The Painted Ladies reviving the lost songs of Vic Simms, releasing the groundbreaking and AIR award nominated ‘The Painted Ladies Play Selections From The Loner. In February 2016, LDP released his debut solo album ‘We’ve Come a Long Way Darling’, again, to great acclaim. He was awarded the 2016 Billy Thorpe Scholarship award at this years Queensland Music Awards, as well as the QMA for the albums second single ‘Fruits Of Our Labour’.

MELODY POOL & PETER BIBBY

Sunday Oct 23, 2016

Doors open at 7pm

Following the release of her critically acclaimed sophomore album “Deep Dark Savage Heart” Melody Pool polished off a National Australian tour playing to audiences engrossed by her lyrical prowess and fascinated by her melodic majesty across the country. After a short hiatus, Melody Pool is back on the road for a huge string of dates across Australia along with Peter Bibby to bring audiences an evening of music that makes no apologies and tells it like it is.

After spending the last 2 years touring his debut album Butcher/Hairstylist/Beautician, Peter Bibby now finds himself with a new collection of self-indulgent songs about girls, chairs, and all the other emotional crash-bangs of a twenty-something year old Australian tramp.

Peter Bibby has toured the world to showcase his folk-ballads about cigarettes at train stations, hypochondria and sleepovers. He has been described as ‘a naughty bastard with a heart of gold and a voice of rotting grapes’ as well as ‘a sweet cup of sauce’. His ability to perform under the influence of enough alcohol to kill a rhino is admirable, yet terrifying.

The two make for a serendipitous yet cognate musical pairing. Offering up the kinds of lyrics you’ll want to lean forward and pay attention to.

SOME JERKS

Friday Oct 28, 2016

Doors at 7pm

Brisbane’s Some Jerks were once described as sounding like Sleater-Kinney covering the Shangri-La’s. They think they sound more like Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra pashing in the surf, though. Or like the house band in Monster Beach Party.

Strange Ways is their second album and it’s real quick – 10 songs in 24 minutes. A couple of songs barely break the 30-second sound barrier. But hey, albums by the Byrds and Ramones aren’t much longer! The length is a strength. Why bother labouring a point once you’ve made it?

Strange Ways more than delivers on the lick and the promise of the band’s first album, Buddy Rich Made Me Cry (2012). It’s already making waves on community radio, with the first single The Hunter being thrashed on 4ZZZ and also being spun on both Unearthed and Triple J’s Short, Fast, Loud program.

Strange Ways is being released through Brisbane’s newest independent label Pig City Records, founded by local journalist Andrew Stafford (author of Brisbane social/political/musical history Pig City) and Sean Clift, of Red Dust Music management.

Some Jerks will be signing exclusive hand-numbered copies of the album at this very special event, which will jointly launch both the album and label in style, with support from local legend Mick Medew and the Mesmerisers, and Pig City Records’ other signing, Sabrina Lawrie, who will be releasing her first album on the label early in 2017.

Tickets on sale through Oztix on September 2.

THE OUTDOOR TYPE

Saturday Oct 29, 2016

Doors open at 7pm

Melbourne’s The Outdoor Type is today excited to announce his new single ‘Rumination’, and will be embarking on an east coast tour across three dates in October and November in support of the single.

Listen to ‘Rumination’ here: https://soundcloud.com/wonderlick-entertainment/rumination-the-outdoor-type/s-PP1Gs

Assisted by producer John Castle (Cub Sport, Vance Joy, Dustin Tebutt) and mixed by Steven Schram (San Cisco, Tigertown, Tiny Little Houses), Zack was determined to record live with his band, limiting any “studio trickery”. ‘Rumination’ is an exciting second follow up to 2015’s ‘The Outdoor Type EP’, which spawned the AMRAP chart-topping singles ‘When The Sun Goes Down’ and ‘Are You Happy’.

Zack says of ‘Rumination’, “The song is about the nature of the modern, routine-driven, fast-paced, nine-to-five, mortgage ’til you die time that we live in. It’s a rejection of that – and, at the same time, a want to prove to yourself, or to others, that you are capable of all those things.”

Off the back of the EP’s success, The Outdoor Type has signed a recording and publishing deal with North American independent powerhouse Nettwerk Records, alongside fellow Australian acts Boy & Bear and Hermitude. Zack has also secured management with Wonderlick Entertainment who represent some of the country’s leading artists including Boy & Bear, Montaigne, and The Paper Kites.

Having supported the likes of Vera Blue, Alex Lahey, and Tiny Little Houses, The Outdoor Type will be joining the NYE On The Hill lineup alongside The Preatures, Columbus, Mosquito Coast and a plethora of other great Aussie acts.
