Super Wild Horses – Standing on the Corner

Listen to

I’ve been whothehell AWOL of late, and these two femmes from Melbourne have jolted me back into the blogosphere (Thankyou ladies). Super Wild Horses are angsty post-punk awesomeness channeling all the right kinds of shouty.

Their eponymous debut EP is out now on Aarght! Records, and you can see them in real life at the Flip Out Festival in Melbourne on 5 September. If you’re in Sydney, you may already have seen them last week. Props to you!

Papa vs Pretty – 'Club 77' video

, , 1 Comment

Sydney band Papa Vs Pretty have made a bunch of videos of themselves recording at home called ‘From The Bunker’ sessions, an on-going 8 part series being premiered every few weeks on their own vimeo channel. The first video here is for the song Club 77, a song they wrote after being refused entry to the Sydney hipster joint for being underaged. I’ve heard a lot about this band but only got to see them recently at the Oxford Arts Factory. I knew from this video that the frontman Thomas can sing, but what this video did not show that he was also a shredder. They did a commendable cover of Purple Rain, a song that I think is risky to do if you can’t pull off the solo with the right style (it is Prince after all), but he did very well. I asked him after a show how he learned to play guitar like that, and his answer was: “Well first I started at Van Halen (!), and then I moved to Page, and then Hendrix, and now I’m at Prince”. There you go.

Deep Sea Arcade – ‘Don’t Be Sorry'(mp3)

Listen to

One of the more exciting new bands to come out of Sydney in the past couple of years, Deep Sea Arcade is blessed with the very captivating frontman in Nic McKenzie, who genuinely loses himself in every song they play. Don’t Be Sorry is the current single they’re touring now, but the live shows indicate there’s a lot more to come from this Sydney five piece. One to put on your watchlist.

Winter People – ‘My Town’ (mp3)

Listen to

With Arcade Fire in between albums, there are no shortage of local bands wanting to fill the gap for multi-instrumental multi-vocal indie-folk, and Surry Hills’ Winter People fit that description well. Out of the five tracks from their The Dog Years, ‘My Town’ resonates with me the most. I’ve yet to see them live, but if you’d like to join me, they’ll be playing whothehell.net’s own Blogger’s Delight on Friday 25th September at MUM @ World bar. Entry is FREE if you rsvp to the invite. And you can get an invite by joining our mailing list.
