The Australian list

Lots of people hate lists, i am not one of those people. i always loved lists, you can find new music fast, bands you never heard of.  They are all cozy in one place so it is easy and you don’t have to search the complete internet or ask your cool hipster buddies what is good these days. Now you can be that hipster yourself. yay

so be ready to ask your friends next time you see them if they know anything about the Australian scene. They will shuffle uneasily in their chair then find confidence again and say: “well King Gizard and The Lizard Wizard is awesome”. Then you can say, well duh and make some flippant noise with your lips.

If you find yourself in company of extreme nerds you can educate yourself fast in the Japanese or Belgian lists. If they know about this too then you find yourself among fans of Fuzzy Sun and great company ofcourse.

Now, we will ofcourse begin with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard because the band is not only fantastic live but spews out great music faster then you can tell your friends about it.

I will, ofcourse, add bands and keep this list updated. For more psych check out Fuzzy Sun’s List.

My list has only just begun and i am starting to think i may have made a mistake. Australia has a massive amount of high quality fuzz/psych/noise stuff and this will be a big job. So let’s go on,  Sons of Zöku from Adelaide has also released new music. A 5 track Ep called ‘Can Dead Dance’. Get to know them.

Dead

Dead is pretty difficult to find on the internet, it seems Dead is a pretty popular word and somewhere in between all the mush from the internet you can find the real Dead. The duo does not only make hardened sludge/punk/stoner i don’t know what, they are the WeEmptyRooms label to where you can find some more goodies. Play now, play loud.
