TEETH & TONGUE LAUNCH SINGLE ‘THE PARTY IS YOU’

Returning from an eventful CMJ appearance and string of shows in NYC, Teeth & Tongue is back on home turf, playing shows in Melbourne and Sydney this week to celebrate the release of new single and video ‘The Party Is You’.

Together with band members Marc Regueiro-McKelvie and Damian Sullivan, Teeth & Tongue (AKA Jess Cornelius) will play a set of brand new, unreleased material full of oddball drum machine rhythms, guitars that sound like synths and synths that sound like guitars, all washed over with that distinctive voice.

On the making of the video for ‘The Party Is You’ Jess Cornelius says, “I put a call out on Twitter to see if anyone would be up for making us a free video, and Alifeleti was one of the directors who put their hand up. Originally I thought the weird drunk girl in the clip would be me, but luckily we found someone else to do it so I didn’t have to. The main idea was for her to be trying to get random strangers to dance with her. It morphed into her getting kicked out of lots of bars and parties, but I think she’s still endearing.”

MP3: TEETH & TONGUE – ‘THE PARTY IS YOU’


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.

BELLES WILL RING TO PERFORM ‘CRYSTAL THEATRE’ IN FULL

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.

Tickets on sale from The Vanguard now.

NED COLLETTE & WIREWALKER ALBUM LAUNCH TOUR

To celebrate the release of their much anticipated second album 2, set for release on Friday 11 May 2012 via Dot Dash / Remote Control, Ned Collette and Wirewalker will perform a string of album launches over June.

Russian-born, Israeli-raised and Berlin-based musician Mary Ocher will support all shows, with local supports to be announced.

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.

All tickets on sale Friday 20 April.
