POND.

Pond¬†are a three piece straight outta Perth. You may well have heard the name before, and perhaps the sound. That’s probs coz two thirds of Pond are Nick and Jay from mega superstars Tame Impala.

It’s big fuzzed out riff heavy rock’n’roll. I’m not a massive fan of Tame Impala…but I’m liking Pond. You can grab a free download of their newy Moth Wings through the Modular site (link below). Also make sure you check out the very 90’s early computer animation stylings of Fantastic Explosion of Time.

The dudes have their fourth album (yep, that’s right!) due out March 2 through Modular. Entitled Beard, Wives, Denim, it’s their first major label release. You can grab it from iTunes, grab a copy on vinyl from the Modshop or get a signed copy from JB HiFi.

CUT COPY + ANDREW WEATHERALL

wow. This here is one of those remixes that seriously stands on it’s own two feet and shouts I’m here! Although the original is epic enough (15mins anyone?!), Andrew Weatherall‘s remix of Cut Copy‘s album closer and new single Sun God cuts away the fat, still manages to make it epic and man, I think is a late contender for one of my fave remixes of the year.

VIVID LIVE LINEUP LEAKED.

ok, so super thanks to the excellent dudes at The Vine for this. They’ve managed to find out some of the VIVID Live linup via some sneaky detective work. Whilst this is everything but set in stone, it’s still fucking a+.

You can check out the article here, but here’s the basic rundown. Big act would definitely have to be Odd Future. And of course there’s some pretty stellar Modular acts too.

For me it’s the fact that The Avalanches are playing. I think i’m definitely going to have to fly up to Syds town for this one. Excitement is a bit of an understatement.

UPDATE:

It seems every site under the sun are saying that they got there first. I got my info off The Vine, but it seems as though awesome bros Pedestrian as well as Mess + Noise and a few others have got the ‘exclusive’ too. I think the real winner here is the inner detective in all of us.
