faceless writerFor this week’s Weaning Lambs, we pass the task over to Liam, our newest writer from Perth, to select 5 cuts that you may not have heard.  An eclectic selection to say the least, from Melbourne’s Hollow Everdaze, who deliver a very cool and joyous retro pop cut, to the driving punk muddle of California’s Pure Muscle. Here is proof in the pudding that we are non-genre bound. Enjoy!

Cut: Catastrophe

Based In: Melbourne, Australia

Flavours Of: Deerhunter, Foxygen, Temples

Propelled forward by an infectious bass groove and spacey vocals, Hollow Everdaze’s new single is a nugget of psych pop brilliance. A perfect tune to lay back and lose one’s head in the clouds to.

 The Pink Tiles are quirky, playful, and catchy. New cut ‘Time For Love’ glides by on simple melodic guitars and buoyant vocal harmonies, delivering a charming slice of bubblegum pop.

In the lead up to the release of his debut EP Ellesmere Street, Perth based angus dawson. has seen fit to drop this emotional bomb on us. Effortlessly combining slinky electronic beats and striking live instrumentation, ‘All The Things I Never Said’ firmly establishes angus has a powerful new voice in the already stacked Australian pop scene.


Weaning Lamb: Pure Musclepure-musicl

Cut: Trust In Me

Based In: California, USA

Flavours Of: Royal Headache, Parquet Courts

Pure Muscle play exuberant, knotty post-punk bolstered by wiggly guitar solos and a classic 70’s punk rock spirit. This highlight off their recently released EP Demonstration, just as the chorus repeats, is something we can’t get out of our head.

Weaning Lamb: Foamfoam

Cut: Get On Board

Based In: Perth, Australia

Flavours Of: Ty Segall, Cloud Nothings

After a long wait and a slew of EPs , Perth garage rock band Foam have finally blessed us with their debut album Coping Mechanisms. ‘Get on Board’ magnificently emulates their rowdy live performances, packing manic aggression and taut veracity into each shout and riff.
