ft. Chase City (Hobart), Angie (Stockholm), Francie Moon (Brooklyn), The Away Days (Istanbul), TEACHERS (Brooklyn)

The discovery of new music through direct contact with artists/bands and promoters is sheer joy for us, not to rely on radio stations or mainstream media is so refreshing.  We again had the privilege of listening to some excellent music, 5 cuts from 5 bands we have delivered to you direct.  From Hobart, we offer Chase City and then it’s over to New York to hear the unique vocals of Francie Moon and the African indie beats of TEACHERS.  We are excited to offer a great dream-pop band from Istanbul and finally its the provocative naughtiness of Stockholm’s’ Angie. Listen in and you’ll know what we mean.

Cut  Surrounded

Based In  Hobart, Tasmania

Flavours of  The Wombats, The Lulu Raes, Death Cab For Cutie

Give it time and you will find Chase City seep into your pop sensibilities to the point of no return.  Emerging from Triple J Unearthed 2013 Falls Festival competition, the four-piece haven’t looked back and have been strongly embraced by local community radio, worldwide blogs and Spotify via their ‘New Music Friday’ playlist. Lets see if these guys can build the buzz that flies around The Lulu Raes.  Great to see the Hobart music scene making it’s mark.

Cut  Smoke Weed Eat Pussy

Based In Stockholm, Sweden

Flavours of  Lana Del Ray, FKA Twigs, Lorde

It would be fair to suggest that to release a song with this title is simply a way to create provocation and attention, but Angie’s debut is clever and remarkably talented.  A tear away from a young age, she used to be found riding her bike around Stockholm, stealing flowers from her neighbour’s gardens, but now she’s more far likely to be skating the streets and celebrating sensimilia.

 

Weaning Lamb  Francie Moon francie-moon

Cut  Red Cloud Road

Based In  Brooklyn, New York

Flavours of  Lapsley, Banks, Paloma Faith

Melissa Lucciola aka Francie Moon is a hard working singer/songwriter who has spent the last few years travelling her home country to share the  sheer excellence of her unique take on bluesy indie rock.  Musically inspired by a 50s vibe, dipped in soulful harmonies, Lucciola’s vocals are intriguing and sublime.  Sheer brilliance and talent.

 

Weaning Lamb  The Away Daysthe-away-days

Cut  World Horizon

Based In  Istanbul, Turkey

Flavours of  Small Black, Wild Nothing, Teen Daze

The Away Days are really far beyond a feature on Weaning Lambs, they are have a stable international following but here in Oz we doubt many would know of this foursome from Istanbul.   ‘World Horizon’  is dreamy, mellow and gentle.  Their support slots to bands like Massive Attack and Belle & Sebastian is well deserved but with this new cut, we may well see this European gang landing their own European headline slots.

 

Weaning Lamb  TEACHERSteachers

Cut  Oceans

Based In New York City, New York

Flavours of  Talking Heads, Hot Chip, The Presets

TEACHERS are an enigmatic four-piece-band from New York City, their new cut ‘Oceans’ is an afro-disco mash-up 80s/90s dance filler. There is so much joy and ridiculous coolness in ‘Oceans’ that is familiar in its repetitive groove but perfectly unique in its production.
