Diamond Day Folk Festival – SAT JAN 10 ANITA’S THIRROUL

Diamond Day is a little festival of folk inspired by the 70s folk music scene and some of the great folk and feminine festivals around the world. France’s Les Femmes S’en Melent is a great example of a yearly event that showcases delicate (and haunting) music from around the world. Diamond Day’s afternoon and early evenings proceedings will feature a number of artists from around the globe. First on the announce is Melbourne based Laura Jean who traveled to the UK and recorded with producer John Parish, renowned for his career-spanning collaborations with PJ Harvey. Her fourth (and self titled) album is up for a whole host of upcoming awards (the age, the amp). New Zealander Aldous Harding self titled album was recently described by Uncut as ‘compelling gothic folk’. She is in Australia for upcoming shows at Sydney and Golden Plains festivals. More artists to be added soon. tickets from https://thelittleboxoffice.com/yoursandowls/event/view/19962

TY SEGALL ON TOUR NOW – $INGLES OUT NOW December 6th 2014 By Aaron

TY SEGALL ON TOUR NOW – $INGLES OUT NOW

You thought Manipulator was the money album of the year? Think . . . AGAIN! 2014 ain’t done yet, and $ingle$ 2 is here. And this time, it’s for the money. Two times! As all of the ears that have heard what Ty’s been putting out for the past five-ish years already know in their tiny l’il ear-brains, our kid’s got any number of places that he’s coming from, and putting them all into his rock and roll music is what he’s all about! Which is cool. $ingle$ 2 sweeps out the ashes of the breakneck days (and nights!!!!) of 2011–2013, and burns down the house all over again in the process — but not by accident. Sorry… $ingle$ 2 slinks low and flat-out sprints behind the scenes of the Goodbye Bread Twins Sleeper trilogy (no it isn’t!), collecting all the now-out-of-print sides that totally work amazingly well together when placed back-to-back-to-back as an album. The super-deadly ‘Spiders’ single is spun again here in full, along with the epically pop b-sides for ‘I Can’t Feel It’, ‘The Hill’, and ‘Would You Be My Love’. Plus there are tracks for other righteous labels too (yes, Virginia . . . ) like Permanent, Castleface and Famous Class. Here’s the tour dates if you have missed them.
