BI-HOUR- An Accident - CD - VACANT VALLEY

click to enlarge Avant-Synth-Pop duo from Hobart/Tasmania. Their experimental brand of Post-Punk sounds reminds of some of Calvin Johnson's projects, a little bit of CLOCK DVA, as well as of their hometown fellows NATIVE CATS. CD contains 5 songs, with about 19 minutes of full playing-time, combining various moods and textures, diversity and freshness. http://bi-hour.bandcamp.com/

CURED PINK/PENGUINS- Split - 7" - VACANT VALLEY

click to enlarge Limited handnumbered edition of 300 copies on white vinyl, in full-color glossy cover, with insert. CURED PINK delivsers a heavy crushing and pounding, monotonous and destructive death-march, with mostly strumming on a guitar, but also other pulsating sounds and metallic effects additionally, incl. shouted echoing vocals. Brings to mind comparisons or references like CLOCK DVA, SWANS, GODFLESH or BLACK HUMOR... The PENGUINS side is in a similar musical, but more organic and less mechanic, meaning it's more traditionally structured as a music-composition than CURED PINK's "non-music". Could be compared to TEST DEPT. and SPK... Oh, actually SPK used to be from Australia as well – and it looks/sounds like these guys are SPK's grandchildren... http://curedpink.bandcamp.com/ and http://penguins.bandcamp.com/

GO GENRE EVERYTHING- Domestic Dreams And Robots - 7" - VACANT VALLEY

click to enlarge Limited edition of 300 copies on violet-marble-colored vinyl, packed in nicely handmade sleeves! Contains 4 songs by this incomparable and outstanding duo from Melbourne/Australia. It's like 60s-Psychedelic-Pop and Girl-Group songs put into a minimalist lofi aesthetic – but(!) different to most other bands today, they are doing it in a mutantly deranged and hilariously funny way! Maybe in a similar vein as if the BOREDOMS or MELT-BANANA would be doing it... Yep, big fucking fun! http://www.gogenreeverything.org/
