Teeth & Tongue return with new single ‘The Party Is You’. Hear and download the track below:
Teeth & Tongue is the music project of New Zealand born, Melbourne based musician Jess Cornelius. With a combination of hypnotic 505 drum-machine beats and slow, bent-out-of-shape guitar lines, her songs weave themselves throughout heartbreak and simmering discontent.
After a successful SXSW 2012 in March, Teeth & Tongue is heading back to the USA for CMJ 2012, to coincide with the release of ‘The Party Is You’.
Her SXSW jaunt saw her play the Flavorpill showcase alongside Niki & the Dove, Zambri and Pictureplane, and shows in Los Angeles, Austin, Houston, San Francisco and Toronto, before unleashing on New York City –– playing shows at Glasslands, Pianos, Rockwood Music Hall and The Bellhouse. She also stopped by EVR to perform live on Andy Rourke’s show, and caught the eyes and ears of VH1, Nylon and MTV. Last year Jess Cornelius released her second album Tambourine though Dot Dash / Remote Control. The Age gave it four stars, The Vine called it “one of the best Australian releases this year”, and the first single ‘Unfamiliar Skirts’ earned an EG Awards nomination for song of the year.
Holed up in the studio for the past few months, Teeth & Tongue has been working on her third album, showing her growing fascination with layered vocal samples, shifting electronic percussion and expansive guitar-scapes. Single ‘The Party Is You’ is no exception, a shimmering gem of synths, drums, and Jess’ super-seductive vocals.
To celebrate the crowd-funded release of their critically acclaimed album Crystal Theatre on vinyl, Belles Will Ring are excited to announce a special one off show on October 20th at Newtown’s The Vanguard where they will play the record in full.
Joining them will be iconic Australian band Knievel, who will be playing their classic record, ‘Steep Hill Climb’ from beginning to end.
In 2011 Belles Will Ring received wide critical acclaim for Crystal Theatre with Rolling Stone giving it 4 stars, Mess and Noise calling it a “sweet and terrifying…a moody, sprawling animal” and Drum Media declaring Crystal Theatre to be “a nostalgically brilliant album that’s ironically way ahead of its time.”
Belles Will Ring fans called for a vinyl release of Crystal Theatre and in December 2011 the band successfully crowd funded the money to print a limited edition 180 GSM vinyl edition in a gatefold sleeve.
Crystal Theatre is such a huge record in both scope and length that it took 6 months in total to get the vinyl pressed and it is with no small amount of elation that the band wish to celebrate this by playing the album live from start to finish for the first and only time.

It’s been 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 then came to Melbourne in October 2011 and finalised the mixes of nine songs, many of which have codas courtesy of Talia.
‘Il Futuro Fantastico’ is the new single from Ned Collette and Wirewalker, taken from their much anticipated second album 2, set for release on Friday 11 May 2012 via Dot Dash / Remote Control.

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.
Collette plays mostly Spanish guitar on 2 and is joined by various guest vocalists including Gemma Ray (UK), Laura Jean, Biddy Connor, Mirjam Smejkal (Germany) and Sascha Gersak (Germany). Both Smejkal and Gersak feature in the forthcoming film clip for album track ‘Long You Lie’, directed by Berlin-based filmmakers Lucy Dyson and Joseph Jensen.
