premiere: Beaches – “Distance”

BEACHES SHE BEATS

Here's a sprawling, dreamy racket from Melbourne's Beaches, taken from the band's forthcoming LP, due in May via our favorite Australian label, Chapter Music. The gorgeous/swirling heavy psych-out "Distance" is one of two tracks on the new record that features guitar from Neu...

video premiere: Super Wild Horses – “Alligator”

SUPER WILD HORSES ALLIGATOR

Here's the blistering, melancholic new single from Melbourne's Super Wild Horses, complete with stark/stunning visuals that only intensify the song's infectious, subtly ominous emotional pull. Both song + video have us very psyched for the follow-up to the duo's beloved 2010 debut full-length Fifteen; "Alligator" is the opening track from the forthcoming Crosswords, out April 5 on Dot Dash / Remote Control Records...

premiere: new Fabulous Diamonds – “Lothario”

FABULOUS DIAMONDS

Here's a brand new one from Melbourne, Australia psych-pop duo Fabulous Diamonds, taken from their forthcoming LP Commercial Music, due later this summer. Jarrod + Nisa (who was also involved in the excellent new Bushwalking record) call the new album "high-brow, young adult contemporary pop music," and while it's certainly less abrasive than their thrilling self-titled 2010 LP, we suspect they're speaking in relative terms here, because the billowing, hypnotic drone of "Lothario" is just as mesmerizing and enveloping as anything else we've heard from these two...

mp3: Holy Balm – “Take It”

HOLY BALM

New track from Sydney, Australia "avant-party" trio Holy Balm, taken from their forthcoming LP It's You, which has found an ideal home here in the States in L.A. weirdo emporium Not Not Fun. "Take It" finds the ESG-influenced crew exploring a dystopic, danceable world inhabited by vintage drum machines and wobbly synthesizers, as Emma Ramsay's elegantly wasted vocals lull us into a tranced-out daze:

listen: Twerps – Twerps LP

TWERPS

We've already been up on the jangly, melancholic, perfectly autumnal lead single "Dreamin" and the equally laid-back/seasonally appropriate, female-fronted "This Guy," but now you can listen to the self-titled debut full-length from Australia's Twerps -- available now on Chapter Music in Australia + Underwater Peoples here in the States -- in its entirety, below:

Catcall – “Satellites”

CATCALL SATELLITES

Here's a big, dramatic/wistful dance-pop anthem from Sydney's Catcall. "Satellites" will appear on Catcall's debut LP The Warmest Place, which drops just in time for this to become a massive Australian summer night jam (sometime in early 2012 on Ivy League)...
