Maddie and Froz were invited along to take some snaps at Teen Sensations‘ ‘Monster Beach Party’ video shoot a couple of weeks ago in Brisbane. Jeremy Neale’s new band of heart-throbs (Georgie Sensation, Corky Sensation, Your Sensation and Jerry Sensation) are launching their debut 7″ on an east coast tour beginning tomorrow night in Brisbane. Dates and more pics after the jump.

Boats is a music project by Melbourne’s Blake Paterson. ‘Spider’s Soul’ – a supine slice of acoustic electronica emerged earlier this year, but Paterson had been making music for a long time prior. After a few years of travel, some “bad stuff”, and a creative slump, an old friend spurred him on to pick up his musical schtick. Since then, Paterson’s been busy recording his EP with production champs Josh Delaney (Rat & Co) and Andrei Eremin. Folksters lock themselves in log cabins, derp-wave starts in crack dens in Redfern, so for this leisurely output it was easy to see why Boats kicked off in a bright blue poolside shack.
Photographer Henry Johnson went out to visit. Lamingtons, cliff scaling and roof bombs followed. Keep posted on Boat’s new stuff over here. Henry Johnson’s bloody handy with a film cam, you can check out more of his photography over at his Tumblr.

When sound artists aren’t soundtracking the future / pulling knobs they’re busy doing other normcore shit like walking their dogs and putting dried fruit into plastic bags at Kalula’s. Lower Spectrum (Ned Beckley) went for a walk with photographer James Whineray around Fremantle the other week. Special appearances from Comida Do Sol, Benny, James, Lucy, Pesto the dog and Booyeembara Park.

Sunbeam Sound Machine did the Melbourne to Sydney run last week, playing a show and stopping over at FBi Radio on the way. Lachlan, their drummer is handy with a cam and took some snaps for us. The band have been busy working on their debut album which lead vocalist Nick Sowersby received an Australia Council recording grant for.
Sunbeam Sound Machine are playing their first headline show in a year tonight at Shebeen in Melbourne, with supports from I, A Man, Hollow Everdaze & Chips Callipso. Tickets are available here.
The band’s debut LP Wonderer is out in November through Dot Dash / Remote Control.
A few weeks ago Melbourne venue the Tote played host to the launch of Geoffrey O’Connor’s ‘Her Name on Every Tongue’. The track is the second single from his sophomore solo album, Fan Fiction - ‘eleven adult contemporary disco hits’, out now on digital, CD and ‘deluxe gold vinyl’ via Chapter Music.
Supporting him were White Hex, a handsome duo whose latest album Gold Nights melds Italo-disco with proto-punk; Terrible Truths, a Melbourne-via-Adelaide post-punk three-piece, who will release an album via Bedroom Suck later this year; and newcomers Gold Class, doing their finest Ian Curtis impersonations.
Terrible Truths’ own Stacey Wilson (Rites Wild, Regional Curse), who also heads underground label Heavy Lows, took some photos for us on 35mm film. Check out Terrible Truths’ new single below, and eyeball more of Stacey’s work on her website.
