My Disco announce Australian tour

Written by John Ritchie on September 22, 2010

Having spent a large portion of 2010 recording and touring abroad, this November and December will see My Disco return home for yet another extensive national Australian tour, this time in support of their imminent third album, Little Joy.

From the press release:

As always with Melbourne trio My Disco, the best thing about the new album Little Joy is its weird kind of absence. Ever since their first shows back in 2003, it’s like there’s been something lacking, a piece missing from the puzzle, but it’s a lack so intriguing that it keeps you coming back, trying to work out what’s not there.

And each time, that lack changes subtly. The set up is still the same – Liam Andrews on bass and vocals, brother Ben Andrews on guitar, and friend Rohan Rebeiro on drums. But each new record sees My Disco refine their essence, removing what most people expect to hear and leaving them something new in its place. The bare bones of a drum beat, a rumbling bass, one repeated phrase and some bursts of feedback add up to a wholly compelling sound world. It’s the sound of a band using the fewest tools to create the greatest range of possibilities. It’s a record both expansive and minimal, a compressed expression of vast emotions.
