It's going to be a huge run-up to the end of the year with new shows just announced for Datura4, DM3 and the Stems. Datura4 will road test tunes from upcoming album number three in support of legends the Pretty Things; DM3 are supporting Ed Kuepper's outfit the Aints; and the Stems are part of an iconic line-up of huge Australian acts at Ascot Racecourse. Details and ticket links in the sidebar.
The Stems' long awaited European tour is underway, with a swag of dates across Spain, Italy, Sweden, Germany, France and the UK already selling fast. See full list of dates on the sidebar.
Catch the dreamy grooves and surf-tastic tunes of The Majestic Kelp's fourth album 'Hi Seas' now available right here or download from iTunes.
Keeping it fresh as a Fremantle tide, the Kelp’s line-up on 'Hi Seas' includes frontman Dom Mariani (guitar) and long time collaborator Stu Loasby (bass), with Steve Mancini (guitar) back in the fold and the genius addition of young guns Luke Dux (guitar and pedal steel) and drummer Todd Pickett.
'Hi Seas' takes you from the creeping, percussive mystery of The Spider and the Sailor to the mellow seductive mood of Sweet Dee to the full-blown hazy and downright lysergic title track and the up tempo chug of highway ode Freeway Ace.
Download from iTunes, or order an individually numbered CD here and don't miss the album launch at Fremantle Arts Centre next Sunday afternoon 11 March.
The Stems are heading to Europe to mark the 30th anniversary of their groundbreaking album 'At First Sight'. Wave them off in April at three special shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Full European tour dates now confirmed. Details in the sidebar.
