John Krautner | Fun With Gum Vol. 1

go

John Krautner of The Go (and Conspiracy of Owls) is back, and he picks up where their latest longplayer Fiesta left off. If you liked bubblegum mega hits like “It Always Happens to You”, then Fun With Gum Vol. 1 will be right up your street. Again, out on the brilliant Burger Records. Bring on the second volume, I say.

Hierophants & Zig Zag

Two great bands from Geelong, with releases out on Moontown Records. The first, Zig Zag, has no relation to brilliant In the Red group Zig Zags.

Hierophants have been a fixture on Record Turnover since their very first EP. Since that time, their musical direction has changed somewhat, seemingly inspired by related group Ausmuteants. Debut album out on RIP Society within the near future.

Frankie & the Witch Fingers | s/t

Permanent Records just released the debut LP from new Indiana group Frankie & the Witch Fingers. They appeared on a brilliant split-EP last year with The Young Sinclairs. This is a great album that sounds like Ty Segall and King Gizzard at the same time.

The Good Morrows & The High Learys

Perhaps The Frowning Clouds isn’t the most interesting Australian band anymore, as proven by two new bands from opposite ends of the continent. The Good Morrows have finally issued their debut LP after teasing us with the track “I Wanna Know” in 2013. The eastern-tinged “Let It Out” is several levels above that though. If you like Elephant Stone…

The High Learys have picked up pretty much where the Clouds left it with Listen Closelier, raw garage and authentic R’n’B sounds with a bit of jangle. After their first LP Here Come the High Learys, they returned in late 2014 with a new single called “Clear My Mind”. While channeling that original 60s teen spirit, they also have a bit of the flowering 80s Perth scene in them (I’m thinking of bands like The Palisades, Summer Suns and The Stems). At the same time the a-side sounds very close to The Allah-Las. While the flip is not quite as sweet, it also feels more original, and an excellent piece of songwriting.

The Young Sinclairs | Change Your Mind 7″

It’s a wonder that The Young Sinclairs and 13 O’Clock haven’t created magic together yet. But here is the band’s first single of 2015 and it’s one of their best yet. Available from 13 O’Clock since two weeks if one’s to believe their website. Also streaming on Spotify since December.

Talbot Adams | Green Girl 7″

Check out the new single from Paul Messis’ label Market Square! Talbot Adams turns in a brilliantly hazy powerpop 45, definitely something for fans of The Red Button.
