Ah, jangly pop. ALWAYS gets me going.

Young Maverick are from Melbourne town and do it rather well. Although we’ve only heard the one track so far, it seriously makes me want to forget everything and jump around like a maniac. They’ve got a bit of a Phoenix feel to them which is always killer. Also remind me a bit of local indie heroes Loon Lake.

The guys have an EP dropping in the next couple of months as well as playing a few local shows – check out their facebook for those!

Check out their track Reception Deception below.

Yikes. Big fat track from Geelong boys The Frowning Clouds.

It’s a bit of a jangly joint that you can immerse yourself in and loose all inhibitions. Check ’em out on the road supporting Eagle and the Worm (deets below). And man, that album artwork is fucking great.

Yikes. Love it when locals (even if it is Sydney) represents. Jubilants do some pretty darn sweet jangly indie pop. Sounds a fair bit like another Sydney band (and maamf FAVE!) The Holidays. Has that tropical feel.

Add to that a definite dance feel (think Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, Friendly Fires, Vampire Weekend, The Holidays) and I think we got it sorted.

Check out their track Antics taken from their debut EP hopefully dropping our way soon!
