SAGAMORE EP LONGER OUT NOW

Hailing from Victoria’s Bellarine/Surf Coast Sagamore play their own brand of twang tinged soulful pop music. Today the band are excited to release their new EP Longer.

Sagamore’s second EP, Longer sees the band push their soulful, timeless sound into more textural landscapes. Spearheaded by the mixing and engineering of guitarist Casey Hartnett, the EP was recorded in a Big Pink style country studio in Christmas Hills and at home in Thornbury, North Melbourne & Geelong, with additional mixing and mastering undertaken by acclaimed Australian artist Lawrence Greenwood. Longer showcases Sagamore’s talent for adept song arrangement and subtle yet dynamic production, combining their rhythm and blues influences with melodic pop sensibilities.

Sagamore are: Sam Cooper (ex Sambrose Automobile); Monty and Casey Hartnett (Sleep Decade); Chris Jennings (Dreamin’ Wild) and Sophia Lubczenko (ex Big Harvest).

COLLARBONES ‘RETURN’ OUT TODAY

Collarbones third album Return is officially released today worldwide by Two Bright Lakes / Remote Control Records.

Collarbones’ Travis Cook and Marcus Whale met in 2007. Divided by 1150km (with Cook in Adelaide and Whale in Sydney), they pieced together their brilliant debut album Iconography and released second album Die Young in 2012. Since then, Collarbones have performed collaboratively with Synergy Percussion at Vivid Sydney and released a mixtape Atlantis 2014 that featured the single ‘Burnout’. The duo have pushed boundaries with their dense, compelling live show – supporting Jessie Ware, Deerhunter, How To Dress Well and a string of local collaborators and friends including Rainbow Chan, Guerre, Oscar Key Sung & Martin King.

Return is an album of 9 songs that documents the erratic mood swings which come after a break up and the narcissism that follows. It deals with the fantasies surrounding love, and hones in on harsh realities. Collarbones have often played with the idea of genre and this album sees the band delving in many directions, in order to find their own way forward. The sincere sound of Return bridges the Teen Idol meditations found on earlier albums and solidifies Collarbones as a true gift to listeners.

Return is available now to stream and on Digital. (Pre-order Vinyl for late December delivery.)

Straight off the plane from Tokyo and into Auckland’s Roundhead Studios, Fat Freddy’s Drop recorded six tracks live to be released exclusively as an iTunes Session.

The iTunes Session captures the finely honed and galvanised energy of the Freddy’s live performance after a prolific year of international headline shows. Highlights included the sold-out Alexandra Palace show in London (capacity 10,000) and a much anticipated Japanese debut in Tokyo.

Released globally on Friday 12 December, the Fat Freddy’s Drop iTunes Session is available for pre-order today via iTunes.

The track list features recent single release ‘Slings and Arrows’ from the bands forthcoming studio album; a haunting version of ‘Dark Days’, a track not re-visited since BOATS (Based On A True Story, 2005) and even ‘Wandering Eye’ even makes a reprise as part of an extended ‘This Room’. Bringing the session to a close the band drop a completely new track available only on this iTunes Session, the deep techno jam ‘Cortina Motors MK1′.

Full track-listing: ‘Slings and Arrows’, ‘Russia’, ‘Blackbird’, ‘Dark Days’, ‘This Room’ (The Wandering Eye Reprise ReRub), ‘Cortina Motors MK1′.
