The City and Horses - Bleeding Knees Club - MKB ULTRA - First Hate - Old Sault

The City and Horses - Shades. Background - Last Friday, The City and Horses released their new album, Ruins. This marks the third album of The City and Horses under Paper Garden - and treats listeners to an array of indie-pop, idiosyncratic songs - fresh, familiar, and all about the funk. The City and Horses are out to get you. To get you feeling better about your breakups, screw ups and photos needing touch ups. Following in the footsteps of melodic mopers before them, TCAH make music for the disaffected.  Front man Marc Cantone, who works as a children’s television producer by day, writes idiosyncratic songs that are fresh, familiar and all about the funk (emotional or otherwise).  And the emotional funk is a key aspect of the band. Having spent his adult life in the throes of OCD, Marc has become a dedicated and vocal supporter of mental health rights and issues. Website here , Facebook here . 'Shades' is the first of twelve songs on the brand new 'Ruins' al

Friday Four: Ivey - Mother Leads - Lunch Duchess - Old Sault

Ivey - All Things Good. Background promo - Fresh faced, born and bred to take on new adventures, Gold Coast's Ivey have been charming the pants off music fans and critics alike since 2013. Remaining just as breezy and young in their delivery but continuing to tighten the screws, Ivey ask nothing more of you, dear listener, than to revel in their indie-pop dream. With half the band still tending to their high school studies, the young troupe is led by young Millie (15), with Lachlan (18) co-fronting on vocals and guitar. Matthew (17) and Dante (19) fill the rhythm out. With Millie at the front-and-centre, Ivey is empowering young teens, irregardless of gender, to pursue their passions. Building on the warm familiarity of previous single, 'Smell of Smoke' but also daring to tread new grounds, 'All Things Good' both sways and wallops with its charming delivery of honest lyrics that imbed in your brain. 'All Thing Good' was recorded with the helping hand of p

Quality Not Quantity: Polyenso - Jenny Broke The Window - Old Sault

Polyenso - 17 New Years. Background promo - Building off of 2013’s cult-acclaimed “One Big Particular Loop,” Polyenso — Alex Schultz, Brennan Taulbee, and Denny Agosto — has spent the past two years working extensively with producer Jason Pennock. Evolving their particular flavor of indie-rock to include elements of hip-hop, neo-soul, and experimental electronics, they pull influences from acts such as Flying Lotus, The Roots, Bright Eyes, and Bjork, half-jokingly referring to their medley as “urban indie progressive.” Possessing an unrestricted vision for the musical quality in all things, the band operates like sound designers, pairing synthesisers, pianos and guitars with organic noise and everyday objects like spatulas, wooden bowls and packing peanuts. Polyenso’s visionary production is equalled by the freshly unlocked vocal dynamics of Taulbee and Schultz. Led by Taulbee’s soothing and provocative melodies, Schultz is tagged in to bring the sexy back on harmonies, occasional
