FLIP THE SCRIPT.

10940441_516423865167019_4199801220819107053_n

Yeah mate, seems everyone and their dog are doing the nu-hiphop vibe lately. With big wigs like Remy doing solid things and Milwaukee Banks  and Baro perhaps being at the top of it, it’s the thing to do. And just like the ‘Australian sound’ EDM thing that happened a while ago, it’s becoming harder for the top kids to raise their heads up above the rest.

Flip The Script feel as though they’re doing things a bit differently. Young dudes, both sing and rap. Both have a pretty cool unique tone in their voice and their flow is undeniable. And to top it off, production is all 90s jazzy vibe. And it kills.

Latest single ‘Acting Profound’ below, and if you dig, download their tape crewsin’ over here.

Sick clip too!

[PREMIERE] YOUNG HYSTERIA.

YH_Hi-Res

Melbourne people may well have heard the name Jimmy Hawk before – he’s done a fair bit of solo work around town and had a band called The Endless Sea for a bit too. Jimmy’s latest project is Young Hysteria and is a collab with his mate Thomas Van Der Vliet. The guys have been kicking around for nearly two years now, and you may well recognise their single of last year ‘One Young Lover’. It was a pulsing r’n’b infused jam that was as equally dreamy as it was intricate and introspective.

Well, we’re lucky enough to be premiering the clip for that track this morning on this here site. It’s a kaleidoscopic night-time journey for the two fellas, complete with booze and babes and all those blurs and colours you end up seeing towards the end of the night. Sounds like my night last night/allmynights ohgosh :/

Rad clip tho!

Keep an eye out for these guys around town this year.

SAN MEI.

San Mei has been a bit of a repeat offender over here on maamf. We wrote about ‘Wars’, her second single a little while ago, but now we got the clip. Granted, this has already been kicking around a coupla weeks and I been a bit late with it all, but when you get a young artist doing great things that are slightly off-kilter and forward thinking, you always gotta post it.

San Mei‘s work has always harnessed this idea of vulnerability coupled with a real strong sense of control and forward motion and this clip nails that.

YES!

[PREMIERE] COOL SOUNDS.

We’re lucky enough to premiere this new clip from those rad Melbourne guys Cool Sounds.

As a track, ‘Safe Flight’ is sort of a no-holds-bar approach to songwriting. There doesn’t feel like there’s any filler in here – everything, even the strumming patterns, the sax lines (provided by Mr Snowy Nasdaq), and those little synths at the end (provided by our mate Zac Denton of Ciggie Witch) feels done on purpose, and not just because that’s what happened when they jammed on a riff and thought it sounded good.

Similarly, the clip also takes that step above. We’ve seen clips like this before – that old VHS footage thing has been done forever, but there’s something about the way it’s all interspersed, and layered, and everything else. And although it most likely wasn’t done on purpose, the approach mimics the layers going on in the track itself rather nicely.

The track was mixed by Sam Wilkinson from Sydney guys Day Ravies and it comes from the bands new tape Melbourne Fashion due out next month on new label Whalesmouth which is run by JJ from the rad Bandcamp Hunter.

Really keen to hear more from these guys!

TWIN BEASTS.

Very often you’ll find an obvious fine line between totally self-aware and owning, and, well, plain cringeworthy. I think the sheer amount of effort put into this new clip from Melbourne’s Twin Beasts puts it into the former camp. Just. It’s perhaps everything you need in a clip – part gaming, part awkward dancing, part fantastic green screen action.

‘Wasting Time’ is taken from the band’s latest full length, Badlove. It’s a great little track that sort of capitalises on that post-punk vocal chucked up against this sort of 60’s inspired instrumentation. On paper it looks weird, but when you hear it, you’ll get it.

You may have caught the band on a couple of dates as they head around the country launching the new album. Sadly, lagely due to my horrible management of the maamf inbox, I missed the show up here in Sydney…but if you’re in Queensland, then the lads are playing three shows up there next weekend. Full details here.

SONS ET AL.

Sons Et Al - Promo

So this vid has been kicking around for a few weeks, but my gosh, every time i watch it, it manages to be mesmerising. It’s that slo-mo cut with the quick edits that make it, and mate, that songs a bit of alright too!

‘Day By Day’ is taken off Sons et al‘s new EP, Godspeed coming out in a week (pre-order here). Also, if you super keen, make sure you check ’em out on a brief run of dates starting tonight in Canberra. Check out their facebook for more details on those.

TEETH & TONGUE.

New clip from Teeth & Tongue is a little nuts. Creepy, and nuts. Although, if you’re into workouts, then it’s probably your thing.

And I love work outs. And I also love the reference point Groove Armada. And I actually do really like this clip. If you can get past the nakedness and flexing of the two fellas in the background, then it’s great in that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. And that track, it’s bloody stellar. Featuring the additional vocal stylings of Laura Jean, ‘Newborn’ showcases exactly what Jess Cornelius is capable of. And if the already building hype surrounding her second album Tambourine is anything to go by, then she’s capable of a hell of a lot.

Tambourine comes out on March 21st through Dot Dash/Remote Control.

SAN MEI.

I spoke about the introverted coolness of San Mei‘s ‘Brighter’ back in September. It was a track that took me a little by surprise, especially during the great female-fronted-indietronica-surge-where-most-of-it-wasn’t-very-good that seemed to be the second half of 2013.

The difference with San‘s work is that it is good. There’s a real sense of innocence and freedom to it all that nails, especially when so much of that ‘whimsical’ stuff has failed in the past.

The clip for ‘Brighter’ is exactly what the song needs. And although I’m not entirely sure of the significance of the burning drum, socks, jackets and jumpers apart from the references to ‘setting fire’ in the lyrics, it does have San singing in the back of a car/boat across some pretty fucking lovely backdrops. The clip feels incredibly intimate even though we’re out in the open – there’s something about us as the audience watching San Mei watch the world as she sings a song about love.

MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS.

You like cats? I actually like dogs. But, yahno, cats are ok. Midnight Juggernauts also like cats. They like crazy cats.

Their clip for ‘Systematic’ from their album Uncanny Valley of this year features a lot of cats.

YEO.

Woah. So it seems as though the world wide web has been going bananas for the new vid and track from Melbourne’s Yeo. This guy is a bit of a music making machine, dabbling his hand in quite a few different styles. And, he actually kinda nails every one.

This new jam ‘Girl’ is in that soulful electronic vibe, and yeah, that style has definitely been done to death, especially in Australia. But when you can rock such a smooth, laid back, sleazy-but-also-really-sophisticated vibe, then it doesn’t matter what fucking style it is.

This is an incredible track. Actually, really really incredible.

And that car trip hair in the breeze film clip – one of the best I’ve seen in a darn long time.
