SECRET HANDS.

Secret Hands¬†is a local Melbourne dude playing some really epic sounding indie goodness, but with this element of introspection which I’m diggin a hell of a lot.

His debut EP, ‘How’ is a really well crafted synth and percussion driven tale of epicness. And that sentence is equally bad as this EP is good (read: sentence was one of the shittest one’s i’ve written/this EP is one of the best things I’ve heard in a while).

Lead track we got below…and if you like, check out the full EP over on iTunes. No chance of being¬†disappointed.

JONATHAN BOULET.

Ok, so here is the first official single off Jonathan Boulet‘s new album, ‘We Keep The Beat, Found The Sound, See The Need, Start The Heart’. We got our first taste with Trounce a month or two back, and although new single This Song Is Called Ragged¬† is no where near as ferocious as Trounce, it is still one of those super percussive heavy tracks with a riff that sticks in your noggin for some time.

I’ve pre-orded the good sir’s new album…you should too. Reckon it may well hit the maamf ’12 top 10. And this is only at two tracks in.

getting all broken these holidays

The Holidays. I saw these guys a few months ago support Bluejuice…and they were pretty impressive. Massive use of percussion in their live shows which is always good to see! These dudes have already got a bit of buzz – they’ve been getting reasonably high rotation on the J’s, and I’m sure they’re picking up a bit from community radio too.

You may remember their killer tropical indie party jam called Moonlight Hours that was doing the rounds earlier on this year. Loved that track something massif, as well as the Jonathan Boulet remix that we featured. The guys have a new single out though. It’s called Broken Bones, and it’s a grower. Definite grower. Bit of a slow-groover with a real nice synth sound. Also included is their trademark percussion, put to good use in the chorus.

The new single is taken from their new album, Post Paradise which is (finally) hitting stores on Sep 24th. You can pre-order it now at JB and get it signed by the band and get a FRIDGE MAGNET (!!!) if you so wish. Or you can just pre-order it on iTunes. OR, you could wait for the 24th, and go into a record store and physically buy the thing with money, or a card taken from your wallet that was in your pocket.

Check out a little preview vid for the album just below as well as a download of Broken Bones. Also make sure you check out the guys on their Post Paradise tour. Grab tix to most of their gigs via our posse store, or head to their website for a full list of gigs
