LNZNDRF, the trio of Ben Lanz, Scott Devendorf and Bryan Devendorf, have announced the release of their self-titled debut out Friday 19 February. To celebrate the announcement, LNZNDRF have shared three live tracks ‘Beneath The Black Sea’, ‘Kind Things’ and ‘Mt. Storm.’

LNZNDRF’s debut is rock minimalism meets sonic maximalism. Recorded in a church in Cincinnati over two and a half days, the eight songs on the album were improvised with a vital spirit harkening back to the reason the members became musicians in the first place. The songs, which were edited from 30+ minute jams, evoke the essence of their expansive, largely improvised live shows.

Watch their live performance below!

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 4.09.02 PM

After playing to a packed crowd at Meredith Music Festival over the weekend, Jess Ribeiro has today premiered the Mikey Young remix of ‘Hurry Back To Love’ via THUMP.

Mikey describes the track: “I met Jess. She was super funny and off kilter. She said do a remix for me and make me sound like Donna Summer. So after trying to turn her into a bunch of Steve Reich tape loops for a day, I gave in and had a crack at unashamedly ripping on Moroder and Patrick Cowley as hard as I possibly could and coming up short of course but not tooooo short”

Banoffee shares video for ‘Body Suit’


Banoffee is excited to premiere the video for ‘Body Suit’ via Red Bull Music. The single comes from her stellar EP Do I Make You Nervous? out now via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records.

The video for ‘Body Suit’ was a collaborative effort. Written by Rhys Mitchell and Banoffee, directed by Rhys Mitchell, produced by Ruth Morris, and with cinematography by Jack Peddey.

The clip follows an eclectic group of characters all interpreting and judging the same presentation: A woman, alien-like and bare presenting herself to an audience.

Banoffee is cloaked in a skin of paint created by Melbourne artist, Lani Mitchell, which she uses to divide her from the scrutiny of her audience – a theme that the track touches upon lightly. Watch the incredible clip below.
