June 28: Roku Music + Polyfox + Machines For Dreams @ Terrace Bar Newcastle

Roku Music are a shoegaze band from Brisbane. They probably draw on other influences, but that’s just a mistake, an accident on their behalf. The band is Donovan Miller (No Anchor), Innez Tulloch (Tiny Spiders, Feathers), Jody Gleeson (The Madisons) and Thomas Roche (The Rational Academy). Four Thousand called them “dark, but not in a cliche goth way,” and Sonic Masala said: “the dark throbbing tensions and feedback squalls that bleed through is a distant relative to Miller’s No Anchor affiliations, whilst the static pop aesthetics that ebb and flow like a reticent tide can be as lightweight as a Feather(s) or a hazy dream from a Tiny Spider(s).”

Supported by local stalwarts Polyfox and the Union of the Most Ghosts, along wth local upstarts Machines For Dreams.

Friday 28th June

$10, doors at 8pm

AUG 16 @ Terrace Bar Newcastle: Pop Singles + Housewives + Polyfox + Hell Setzer

Pop Singles play Newcastle as part of their 2012 LP Launch tour this Thursday night August 16 at Terrace Bar with special guests Housewives, Polyfox And The Union Of The Most Ghosts, and Hell Setzer.

RSVP on Facebook

ALL GONE is the much anticipated debut LP by Melbourne based trio Pop Singles. The band draw similarities with the melodic post punk of the 1980’s (The Triffids, Husker Du, Sad Lovers & Giants), as well as inspiration from local pop luminaries Popolice and Dane Certificate. The production of ALL GONE is assured and composed, encompassing the polished sound of the groups earlier EP and 7″ with the jangly, raw feel of their cassette releases and live shows. A record revealing inner tension, hope and hopelessness: Pop Singles have made a relatable and affecting debut.

Bummer Vibes Festival

Spring Break presents BUMMER VIBES FESTIVAL at The Croatian Club this Saturday February 18.

Summer Vibes Festival | 16 January 2011 | Newcastle Australia

Last year there was a festival called Summer Vibes. It was awesome. I can’t do it again. I wanted to briefly, but realised that anything and everything would just be shit after it. I also went to a few other festivals and checked out a few other festival lineups, and realised that shit is the new black, so I guess you can’t get too bummed about this. It’s not that the lineup is bad, it’s just not that great. It will probably rain, too. This is Bummer Vibes. February 18, Croatian Club Newcastle.

Tickets are going on sale probably by the end of the week at oztix probably if I can be bothered filling out another email attachment and sending it to them, and I guess they’ll send some tickets down to Newcastle and we’ll put them at the Croatian Club and Emma Soup and maybe somewhere else for $10…

The 2012 Neo-Tropical tour features:
Wild Dog Creek
Red Hymns
Document Swell
Yolke
Trjeau

Joining the Newcastle show will be local bands:
Polyfox And The Union Of The Most Ghosts
