Howl – Anyone But Us

[audio:Howl-Anyone_But_Us.mp3]

Plucked from relative obscurity of a Ballarat High School, Howl won Triple J’s Unearthed High Competition in 2009. They’ve since played along side Art Vs Science, British India, Bluejuice and The Scare and graced festival stages at Stereosonic, Field Day and Queenscliff. The debut EP has created quite a stir with every track receiving favourable airplay on radio and rave reviews.


The Laurels – Art School Girl

It would be hard to describe the Laurels without the sentence “coolest upcoming band in Sydney right now” in there somewhere. On the cusp of their debut release, bands like You Am I, Tame Impala, Cloud Control, Richard In Your Mind, Belles Will Ring have been lucky enough to play along side them before they inevitably change the world and forget they ever met us in haze of psychedelic success.


Brown Bear, Black Bear – Jeff Goldblum

MUM’s 2am residency for April hosts Sydney newbies Brown Bear Black Bear. The group is set to make waves with their debut EP later this year. Formed in March last year by Dave Novak and Zeyd Natio (ex-Bird Automatic) the band’s pure indie sound resonates deeply in the fine electric syncopation and multiple layered beats. It’s like Whitest Boy alive, but turned up to eleven.


Megastick Fanfare – Brain Tooth

When a scenester sits down with a tab of acid after a hard weeks work, they hit play on Megastick Fanfare. Their hypnotic live shows lead the new wave of psychedelic pop coming out of Sydney and Melbourne. After being exposed at the Syndey Uni Band Comp the band have just completed a tri-state tour releasing their joint 7″ with Kyu, ‘Braintooth’ and are getting ready to finally release a full length album later this year.


We Say Bamboulee – Waiting In Wisconesin

Deriving from the picturesque Blue Mountains, We Say Bamboulée’s sound is most definitely influenced by the echoing landscapes of their childhood, much like mountain kid siblings, Cloud Control. First coming to our attention at the Sydney Uni band comp in 2008, they’ve been keeping us waiting for their debut EP which is being recorded in their home studio. They’ve promised us they’ll finally be releasing it later this year, probably as soon as they stop procrastinating with their tie-dye t-shirts…
