So, the new Muscles album drops tomorrow. I’m kinda keen…but really wonder whether he can top Guns, Babes, Lemonade. We wrote about the new jam, ‘Ready For A Fight’ a little while ago.

Anyway, Melbourne fella Airwolf has gone remixed the latest. Makes it slightly more accesible, and more club friendly. It doesn’t lose any of it’s energy though. Makes something that was originally pretty discordant and uneasy (which, can I say, I really love), into something that makes a bit more sense, ready for the smashed kids at Can’t Say or something. Like it.



So, this is perhaps the latest a mixtape has ever been…a little over a month late. Pretty abysmal I know.

But you know what, it’s a fucking good tape.

Muscles is gonna be releasing his second album in a few weeks. Entitled ‘Manhood’ it’s one album I’m definitely keen on hearing this year. More info about the album over on the Modular site.

Anyway, the first single from the album dropped the other day. It’s some hard Euro disco kinda stuff, but still with that distinctive lazy Muscles vocal. There’s some uneasyness in this track, that major triad that’s played in the chorus (music nerds unite!) against that almost harsh sounding vocal sound. I really like that. It’s not just another track that makes immediate sense and follows some formula. I think given Muscles‘s music chops, he’s able to pull this off rather well.

Make sure you check out the fella when he launches the new album throughout June and July. Deets in that massive poster above!

St Kilda Festival 2011 Full Lineup!

The full lineup for St Kilda Festival’s Festival Sunday came out today, and it’s looking good.

We announced the first four acts on the list about a month ago, and although they looked good, the full lineup looks better. Some great local bands and one that will get all the ’90s and early ’00s kids going nuts.

This year, Festival Sunday spans across nine stages, with a decent range of acts playing. You should recognise a few of the names, but like me, there’s a few there i haven’t heard of. Below is the full lineup with set times etc. As you can see, there is HEAPS on.

Especially looking forward to Gareth Liddiard, Jebediah, Muscles, Kimbra, The Medics, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Dan Webb, Jessica Paige, Paqman, The Bon Scotts, and Stonefield. It’s all for free, it’s on Sunday Feb 13th, and is right throughout St Kilda.

happy freakin modmas

All i seem to go on about is how good Modular Records are. Well…they are ok? And they’re throwing a Christmas party too. And you guys are invited…(well, only if you’re in Melbourne or Sydney that is).

Anywho, the line up for these gigs is looking pretty alright. Kinda wish I was heading to the Sydney party instead of Melbourne…but you know…can’t win ’em all. You Sydney people and Melbournites should definitely head down. Ticket’s are selling out pretty quick smart though…so geta to ita!

Anyway, the line up for both gigs are just down below. I’m just excited to finally see Muscles play after the whole shemozle that was him and Nevereverland last year.
