Caroline No – why are you there

CAROLINE NO NO LANGUAGE

Taken from Melbourne group Caroline No's limited No Language cassette, a lovely collection of dreamily languid, vaguely psychedelic, and loose, often improvised bedroom pop gems that reveal themselves more with each listen. Recorded with a handheld recorder, and out now "on a hot green cassette in a hot pink case, extra special put together to be beautiful." The group apparently has another new record called Swimmers, produced by Mick Turner of Dirty Three, out soon. Listen:

ABELARD

premiere: Beaches – “Send Them Away”

BEACHES

Here's another glorious track from Melbourne's Beaches, taken from the group's excellent forthcoming LP She Beats.

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...

mp3 premiere: Dick Diver – “Water Damage”

DICK DIVER

Here's the lilting, endearingly wry new single from Australia's Dick Diver, taken from the group's forthcoming LP Calendar Days. Fans of their like-minded Melbourne homies + labelmates Twerps will find plenty to love in "Water Damage," a lovely, understated little jangle-pop gem that evokes a bittersweet yearning, managing to remain pensive and just sunny/hopeful enough at once...
