It’s a brand new year and while you’re lying there nursing your hangover we thought we’d do you a favour and let you know what 24 of our favourite people thought about the year that was 2014.

We put the word out and mostly everyone came back to us with their favourite releases of 2014. It didn’t have to be one thing, it could be a single, an EP or an LP.

So thanks to all the legends who took part in our last-minute survey. Please make sure you click on their links and give them a like and stay up to date with their creative movements. These people are some of the most unique, talented, hard-working up and coming cool cats on the scene today. So lucky for you, we’ve given you some insight into some artists that you may not have known till today. So do yourself a favour and give them your support in 2015!

There’s links next to each artists choices, so who knows you might even discover some new tunes or artists that you might have missed during the year that was 2014.

Stand outs; Newcastle’s The Owls & Brisbane killers Violent Soho get 3 mentions, Hype band DMA’s get 4, Aussie favourites Sticky Fingers get 5 mentions and Sydney Soul punks Fait Accompli get 6.

#CHOLO!

We’re looking forward to doin what we set out to do in a big way in 2015! The last year has given us some pretty important lessons and major discoveries too, it’s time to get into the groove.

If you’d like to get involved then give us a hoy via email: mysydneyriot@gmail.com

MY MARS RIOT /// A MINI FEST AT THE ANNANDALE HOTEL AND YOU SHOULD COME!

MY MARS RIOT WEB POSTER 1

So we were approached by our friends at THE ANNANDALE HOTEL to put on a night of music.

We agreed on a date and we decided to put on one of our classic mini music festivals, a lucky 13 band lineup filled with a list of bands we think have the potential to make a big mark within the current independent music scene.

A few of these bands might already be familiar to most of you, but some of these bands you may not have heard of just yet. But if you know our history in discovery music gold, then you’ll believe us when we say that it was damn difficult trying to curate this lineup because all of the bands are damn right special in their own way.

Anyway who are we to try to sell you some kind of fictional story? We suggest you keep the following date SAT 20 APRIL free on your calendar and get along to this special event.

MARS to us is like a metaphor for new music discovery, so we suggest you come planet hopping with us.

Celebrations kick off from 5pm over 2 stages filled with independent music at its finest. Don’t be late, the planets await. XX

12/21 – FEATURED ARTIST – DEAD BEAR

12 DEAD BEAR
Artist: DEAD BEAR
City: Batemans Bay, NSW
Style: Indie Punk Experimental
Members: Matt Jenkin, Liam Gray, Don Richards

DEAD BEAR are a cool indie experimental post punk band from Batemans Bay in the South Coast of NSW. The first time we saw these guys play totally blew us out of the water! It was bizarre that an unknown band all the way from the South Coast had this massive cross over sound and they were all like really young, like still in High School young!

Their music is kind of like Fugazi crossed over with Nirvana and some of their own personal influences thrown into the mix. Anyway what ever it is they are doing, it is working and we can’t wait to hear a proper recording from these guys.

Their local venue NORTH STREET CAFE has been a breeding ground for live music, venue owner the legendary Mr Drew has put in a good effort for this community inviting a massive cross-section of underground bands from Hard Ons to Fait Accompli, The Go Roll Your Bones to Zeahorse, The Bungalows and Goons of Doom to tour the South Coast over the years making Batemans Bay a great place to see bands.

Without Drew’s efforts in supporting live music a band like DEAD BEAR may have never existed, let alone some other amazing local bands like BEACH COMA and DEAD GANG who are currently residing in Melbourne.

North St Cafe took a hiatus for a little while, but we  are happy to say that they will be back in business, better and stronger. So keep an eye out for shows back at The Northern in the Bay in 2013.

We don’t have any musical evidence of DEAD BEAR just yet, but trust us when we say, you will be hearing from them soon. And when your ears prick up listening to the radio or one day at a show, just remember this “We told you so!”

DISCOVER DEAD BEAR!

21 BANDS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE THE WORLD ENDS!

Over the next 21 days we’ll be featuring a band per day online from this special list of independent bands from Sydney and around Australia. Stay tuned and discover something new. Who knows? your next favourite band might be right here!
