RIOT OF THE DAY /// ECCA VANDAL TRIPLE J ALBUM OF THE WEEK!

What’s up Riotz! As you all know we love ECCA VANDAL, we fell in love with her early in the piece and we have been pretty hyped on her ongoing mission to keep it real within the confines of a safe Australian music industry in the most ECCA way possible.

So Yes! we managed to get our hands on her self titled debut album and ever since its release we have been lost in all of the colours. And boy if this is just the start of her journey, then we say ‘the sky is the limit’ for Melbourne’s great heroine of dynamic intense and soulful rock / electronic sounds. Congratulations ECCA VANDAL!

This album is a buzzing hummer of a record. And although the radio hits already exist ie; END OF TIME, BROKE DAYS PARTY NIGHTS and FUTURE HEROINE, its the hard hitting track PRICE OF LIVING that show her bands muscle. These guys are tight! Could even be the tightest musical unit in Oz for a long time since the early days of Regurgitator.

This record has many vibes, but it really starts to open up towards the end with the more guitar feely tracks sending us into a frenzy making songs like OUT ON THE INSIDE and closer BAD HABIT the real winners for us. But that’s just how we feel today, tomorrow is another day and songs like YOUR ORBIT and COLD OF THE WORLD create the electronic vibez for all to appreciate. Damn!

Look! the record is kinda faultless. It’s got everything you need and more and all we want is another record ASAP. Stat!

Ecca Vandal is musically fearless, her album proves that she stands on a very solid musical foundation and we look forward to what comes next.

While writing our review we turned on the web and realised that she has hit ALBUM OF THE WEEK status at Triple J and that is something worth celebrating! The more people get to hear Ecca’s songs the better the shape of the local musical landscape will be.

So if Ecca Vandal is still new to you then we suggest you get out to a show and get down to her sounds. Pretty sure there’s only a few gigs left on her current album tour, but there is no doubt she’ll be back at it over the summer. But if you can’t get to a gig, buy her music HERE and HERE.

Enjoy this week on the air waves and tune in to the ECCA VANDAL sound!

BOOM! BOOM! REPRAZENTTTTT!!!!

RIOT OF THE DAY /// FIVE YEARS AGO! FREE PUSSY RIOT!

MY PUSSY RIOT was a killer music compilation we put out five years ago in support of punk art feminists PUSSY RIOT who were arrested for staging a protest against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin inside an Orthodox Cathedral in Russia. Some of Australia’s most killer independent artists kindly donated their songs for no charge which was pretty awesome.

We ended up on the BBC and all over the internet. Interviewed by Associated Press and even Triple J! 

Anyway we made a small contribution to the international movement which led to PUSSY RIOT’s eventual release. You know the ripples etc… Check out the solid list of bands below. It was so cool how so many bands came together for a worthy cause.

You can still download it for free from HERE

NEW MUSIC /// THE WORLD WAS JUST CRUISING ALONG AND THEN ‘ECCA VANDAL’ HAPPENED!

ECCA VANDAL

A few weeks ago we were driving our Tank down Main Street Sector 9.8 and while switching thru the endless FM matrix of Meh… then BAM! this song came raging out of the radio! it was crisp, it was tight, it was anarchy, brutal yet audible and complete. We quickly pulled over to hear the back announcement, but we got unlucky, no name, so no cherry unfortunately (pretty sure that song was BATTLE ROYAL). We were gonna call the radio station then life went on, but somehow that noise remained in our brains. Catch ya next time yo!

MY SYDNEY RIOT INTERVIEW /// SPIRIT VALLEY

SPIRIT VALLEY BW

If one particular two-piece band in Sydney was ‘REGULATING’ right now, then that band would definitely be SPIRIT VALLEY. These guys have been playing around the traps over the last few years, but it seems like in the last 6 months they have really taken this town by the throat (Sydney at best can be a voiceless child standing there looking at the concrete without a voice) so that is sayingalot!Like all cats who like to be in the know we keep survey on what peoplearesayin on the streets and one question that comesupalot is “do you know Spirit Valley?” So if people are asking questions like this then one must get their investigating sunglasses on and go to the source and ask the questions… and that’s exactly what we did.We met in the dark of night at a Petrol Station near Wollongong and so we proceeded to ask the boys a few questions. We kinda went deep, not too deep, but deep enough to get an insight into how Spirit Valley ticks.SPIRIT VALLEY mean the business and it’s fuckin about time some serious Sydney rock n’ roll appeared on the horizon.

Here’s what they had to say…Enjoy!

GAY RODEO – VEGEMITE /// VIDEO WORLD PREMIERE

GAY RODEO PIC 2

Sydney punk duo GAY RODEO have hit the ground running with a brand new video for their song VEGEMITE. This will definitely go down a treat when it makes its debut on National TV this week just before Neighbours on Channel 10, a great time slot for this classic song by a band that till yesterday we didn’t even know existed.

Also if you get a chance you can vote for Vegemite as it is also a finalist in The International Best Jingle Awards of 2015.  The boys have been flown out to Canada and will be debuting Vegemite live at the awards. Stars like Kanye West and Iggy Pop are both said to be attending.

Made by Mtv award-winning film director Glenn Chalk (the Matrix) the guys are currently working on another video which will be released as a vinyl video, something that has never been done before. Look out for their debut EP, set to drop on Iggy Pop’s yet to be named record label.

Congrats guys!

THE RUMOURS SINGLE AND VIDEO PREMIERE /// I TOLD YOU

the rumours I TOLD YOU web 1

Up and coming Sydney two piece THE RUMOURS have just recorded a brand new  single which is the first in an exciting five-part video/single project the boys are working on over the summer of 2015.

Produced by Dave Hammer (Born Lion, Thundermentals, Fait Accompli) at Def Wolf Studios this single was recorded live and dusted in one session, showing how far THE RUMOURS have come as a live unit in the space of a year.

They also managed to film a video with another up and coming ex-New Yorker now based in Sydney filmmaker Spencer Hyde (also front man of the fresh new Sydney outfit Captain Cook) to document the process.

Check it out here in all it’s glory I TOLD YOU!
