Ohh mate. Here be the March tape for this music blog that you are currently visiting on the really big web of things and information and cats.
Big ol’ mix as per usual. Even including some neo-classical this time round (basically it’s just an excuse to include something from the new Duet Duets record from the master Tim Shiel). There’s also a massive 15 min jam from Darren Sylvester (who also worked with Conrad Standish and James Cecil). There’s also some repeat offenders – namely Blaq Carrie, Snowy Nasdaq, and Deja. But, ynou kow what? It’s all good.

Sydney kids Aeons are at it again. They’ve just finished their debut EP entitled Beyond The Satellites and expect it to explode…well…not actually explode coz that would be bad n shit. But you know, expect them to get big with this EP. (and before you ask, no i’m not calling them fatties.)
The dudes have a bit of a Presets sound in that it’s big, a little operatic, especially the title track. It also has this dirty kinda sound, especially with the effect at the end of the opening synth motif. And if that’s not enough, the EP has been produced by fellow Sydney kid super good producer Diamond Cut.
So what about this EP though… The title track is an obvious standout, purely because it lifts you up n shit. The other tracks are equally as sweet. There’s this big sense of familiarity about the EP which is definitely a good thing. Via Lactea seems to be an amalgamation (have always wanted to get that word in on maamf…) of their other work, but still manages to stand on it’s own two feet. The other track you probably haven’t heard, Raise Your Flag is almost a little Muse-ish. Still has some great synth lines…and it kinda rocks out!
You guys can grab the EP for FREE from their MySpace from June 18.
Anyway, check out the title track just below as well as a remix of Beyond The Satellites by another Sydney dude Frames.
