NED COLLETTE & WIREWALKER TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM | FREE MP3

Ned Collette and Wirewalker return with their much anticipated second album 2, set for release on Friday 11 May 2012 via Dot Dash / Remote Control.

It’s been the over two years since Melbourne musician Ned Collette relocated to Berlin. Written mostly during Collette’s first year in the German capital, 2 explores themes of distance and restarting, taking up arms against the neighbours, fantasies of death and decline after the party, butterflies, salad, altering cities and forgotten home. The album also features an instrumental tribute to late Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño.

Most of the album was recorded between Collette in Berlin and Joe Talia in Melbourne, with Talia spending six weeks in Berlin over May and June in 2011 to further expand on their recordings. Collette came to Melbourne in October 2011 and finalised the mixes of nine songs, many of which have codas courtesy of Talia.

While this is the second Wirewalker record, the title 2 also refers to the fact that the album is essentially a collaboration between Collette and Talia, with regular Wirewalker member Ben Bourke taking time off to be with his young family in Melbourne.

Ned Collette & Wirewalker are kindly offering a free download of ‘Happy Heart’, the first track taken from 2.

ON MY PLAYLIST w/ TEETH & TONGUE

The lovely Jess Cornelius from Teeth+Tongue talks about the music currently on her mind.

Teeth & Tongue will play at the Melbourne Music Week closing party this Saturday 26 November, Melbourne Central Rooftop. Presented by Two Bright Lakes & Mess+Noise, also playing is Nick Huggins and Oscar+Martin + many more.

Superette – ‘Waves’

We’re covering this song for a Flying Nun birthday celebration gig and it’s reminding me how much I love this band. They were played a lot on student radio in Wellington, and this came out in 1997. They’ve been broken up for ages, though. This track is about a guy who accidentally kills a girl in the middle of a field, it’s pretty heartbreaking.

The Weeknd – ‘The Morning’

http://youtu.be/NRUKozmkPPY

This doesn’t really need any explanation. I’m hooked, just like everyone else. I didn’t realise Marc had the record until a recent drive up to Sydney, where we had it on repeat. It’s good driving music. Marc loves slinky R ‘n’ B a lot more than anyone would guess.

Laura Jean – ‘Australia’

Simon Grounds recorded this track and he was telling me about it before I heard it. He described it as the ‘anti national anthem’. It sends shivers down my spine when I see it played live.

We could not find this track online, but you can listen to more of Laura’s beautiful music here.


Ballads – ‘Your Mistake’

Listen here.

This is a new Melbourne band that have only put out a 7″ so far. But this track has had got a lovely lilting, meandering rhythm and a sweet wurlitzer vibe, but then this big droney organ thing comes in and makes it all a bit tough.

Alexandra Stan – ‘Mr Saxobeat’

This one’s on Marc’s behalf. He came to rehearsal one day raving about this really catchy pop song he heard in a supermarket. He even sang it to me to see if I’d recognise it. I think he really likes the way the singer says the word ‘freak’, kind of rolling her ‘rr’s in a very Russian sort of way. I went home and looked up the song on You Tube but I have to say, I ‘m not sure I share his enthusiasm. I like the way Marc sings it though.

Teeth & Tongue reveal new single + announce launch

Teeth & Tongue return with new single ‘Vaseline On The Lens’.

“Vaseline On The Lens’ is the oldest song on Tambourine”, says Jess Cornelius. “It was written just after we finished Monobasic, but Marc and I made four different recordings of it because we just couldn’t get the recorded version to equal the live version”, she adds. “Eventually we stripped back all the guitar parts and it came together. It still keeps changing when we play it live”.

To celebrate, Teeth & Tongue will launch ‘Vaseline On The Lens’ at Goodgod in Sydney on Saturday 8 October, and at The Buffalo Club in Melbourne on Saturday 15 October.
