By now you’re probably aware that indie-folk siblings Angus & Julia Stone are back making music together after a number of years apart focusing on solo projects.

The new single from the pair is “Snow” and is the first tasted of an upcoming self-produced album.

“Snow is both of us. We sat down and wrote it together,” Angus Stone explains.

“It was quite magical because Angus and I have never spent that much time together, just the two of us,” elaborates Julia Stone. “There’s always at least an engineer or tour manager but the last phase of writing and recording was just eight weeks of him and me and the quiet of the land. It was a beautiful time.”

Take a listen to “Snow” below:

Friday Folk Flashback

“Supermarket Wine” – Pat Coyne

Miles and Simone Return with New Single “She And I”

Miles and Simone

Melbourne alt-country favourites Miles and Simone have made a bold return with the release of their new single “She And I”. The track was recorded with producer Dan Luscombe (The Drones, Courtney Barnett) and was birthed out of the chance discovery of a a battered old nylon-stringed classical guitar amongst boxes of old records behind the red velvet stage curtain of Melbourne’s Basement Discs record store.

“While we were waiting to go onstage, I spotted a small guitar behind the boxes of records,” Miles O’Neil explained. “I saw it was covered in the signatures of the many musicians who had performed on the Basement Discs stage. I tuned it up, started strumming and a song just came out, as if it was waiting behind the strings. I started singing “she and I would run like rolling rivers” and knew it was a keeper.”

Check out “She And I” below:

The new single from alt-country six-piece Georgia State Line, “Older Than I Am”, now has a brand new video filmed and directed by Agostino Soldati. Set at a suburban bowls club the video is wonderfully retro.

“We crashed Saturday morning bowls at the Glenroy Bowls Club to film a video with the brilliant Agostino Soldati, aiming to reiterate the idea that age is never a factor nor a limit, plus we got a bit of help from our wonderful actors Violet and John busting out some moves,” front woman Georgia Delves explained.

“Older Than I Am” is taken from Georgia State Line’s upcoming EP Heaven Knows due on the 7th July. Check it out below:

Georgia State Line will be officially launching “Older Than I Am” at the Union Hotel in Melbourne on the 17th June with Small Town Romance in support – check out the official Facebook event for more details.

Melbourne blues-rock band The Teskey Brothers are having a killer year. Their debut album Half Mile Harvest, released earlier this year, has already hit #2 on the iTunes chart and their recently announced tour has already seen two of the their three home town shows sell out.

“We can’t quite believe the response Half Mile Harvest is getting,” Josh Teskey from the band said. “We are so excited to play The Corner Hotel, one of Melbourne’s most iconic venues were we have seen loads of bands play and now we are doing three shows there! It’s all pretty crazy but we’re just so thrilled that people are connecting with the music. That’s all we ever hoped for with this album.”

Speaking of that tour, The Teskey Brothers have a whole bunch of dates around the country kicking off at the start of July. The full list of dates are below:

Melbourne based singer-songwriter Jim Lawrie will be releasing his new album Slacker of the Year this Friday 9th June and has just released his hilarious new video “Swimming in the Rain” featuring footage from “a random 80’s movie that Jim found in the archives of the interwebs”.

“I wrote a song about a summer of love, a loss of innocence, and the dance of lustful confusion between two friends,” Jim Lawrie explained. “It reminded me a lot of 1988’s classic Hollywood romp, Computer Beach Party. As I set out to reimagine this timeless masterpiece to the tune of my future hit single, “Swimming in the Rain,” it dawned on me that once I had cut out all the nudie scenes there was only just enough footage left to scrape together a 4 minute video clip.”

Check out the video for “Swimming in the Rain” here:

Jim Lawrie will be launching Slacker of the Year on Friday 28th July at the Northcote Social Club.
