Hello Satellites will play a single launch in support of ‘Television Screens’ in Melbourne on Sunday 24th of November at The Workers Club. Full details and ticket information for the show can be foundhere.
84000 was recorded and mixed by Popov in collaboration with three of Melbourne’s finest producers,Nick Huggins, J Walker (Machine Translations) and Joe Hammond and is due for release in early 2014.
84000 is an album about our addiction to dreaming and the stories we tell ourselves – about delusions and what we use them to get away from. It’s about our physical bodies and how they house our perfection, our hollowness, our sexuality, our desire, our addictions and the search for freedom and connection.
The title – 84000 refers to the number of holes, or pores in the body according to Chinese Medicine. It also is an important number in Buddhism – the Buddha had 84000 teachings to remedy the 84000 afflictions, or delusions one could suffer from.
Hello Satellites – 84000 will be released in March 2014 via
Two Bright Lakes / Remote Control
The album is different from all other Mick Turner records – not just his own, but the ones he’s done with Dirty Three, Bonny Prince Billy, and Venom P. Stinger put together. Don’t Tell the Driver is unarguably the first post-rock rock opera of our times. A record of our times by an artist running out of time.
Don’t Tell the Driver features heaps of help from friends, adding piano, melodica, Fender Rhodes, horns and vocals.
Mick Turner has shared a video for the meditative eight minute track ‘The Bird Catcher’, featuring the late and much loved actress/singer Karen Black in time for the release of his new album Don’t Tell The Driver.

WARPAINT is a Los Angeles based quartet comprised of Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals), Theresa Wayman (guitar/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums). To say that this follow-up is “highly anticipated” is an understatement considering the reception that their debut received when it was released at the end of 2010, and the excitement at their recent sold-out shows in New York and LA. They are currently also featured in a Calvin Klein jeans campaign which has received 2 million views via the youtube ad alone. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE CALVIN KLEIN CAMPAIGN

As much as guitar, Don’t Tell the Driver features heaps of help from friends, adding piano, melodica, Fender Rhodes, horns and vocals.
Caroline Kennedy-McCraken (Dead Star, The Plums, Caroline No) – vocals
Oliver Mann (Australian opera, solo artist) – vocals

Regular visitors to Australia, Future of the Left are contractually obliged to tell you that their fourth studio album “how to stop your brain in an accident” will be released on 25th October 2013 through Prescriptions/Remote Control.
Recorded by Charlie Francis (R.E.M, The Noisettes, Sweet Baboo) at the prestigious Monnow Valley Studios in Monmouth, and mastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road Studios, it contains fourteen songs and runs to/at/on 46 minutes, all of which are completely necessary. if you are alive and even vaguely in love with the idea of rock music being more than an ersatz lifestyle choice then it is clearly their best album yet. Yes, they would say that. No, it’s not open to debate.
The album is also accompanied by mini album, Human Death, which was recorded during the same album session. It is available on the same release date and sold separately. The 6 songs on this are by no means lesser in quality. They are album worthy but simply did not fit on the record. After an extremely prolific period of writing the band wanted to record as much as possible, hence these additional songs in the form of this extra mini album.
