Secret Sounds Present..

THE LEMON TWIGS (USA) Official Splendour sideshow

w. special guests MOSSY

Once or twice every generation, Long Island introduces the world to artists of such singular originality that they change the very nature of their art: Lou Reed; Jim Brown; Robert Mapplethorpe; Andy Kaufman.
With their debut album, Do Hollywood, The Lemon Twigs have earned themselves a spot on that list.

Fusing tightly constructed pop, sophisticated orchestration, and British invasion melodies into a ten-song masterpiece, the D'Addario brothers— Brian (20) and Michael (18)—are whipping fans and critics alike into an utter frenzy. Having just taken out the coveted Grulke Prize for Developing US Act at this year’s SXSW, and being hailed by NME as “the future of rock ‘n’ roll”,
The Lemon Twigs will be stamping their flamboyant sound on Australian audiences for the first time, coming off the back of playing some of the world’s largest festivals including Coachella and Glastonbury.
This is your chance to see one of 2017’s most exciting acts, playing Australia for the first time.

HOLLOW EVERDAZE 'Cartoons' DEBUT ALBUM LAUNCH (Deaf Ambitions)

As forecast by the reverbed lushness of their breakthrough 2015 single ‘Last Laugh’, Hollow Everdaze’s long-time-coming debut album 'Cartoons' is a stunning new statement for a band that’s been reimagining psychedelic pop from the start.

While deeply schooled in the classics – from the Rubber Soul balladry of ‘Still Ticking’ to the jaunty orchestral layering of ‘Running Away’ – the Western Victoria five-piece have arrived at something remarkably fresh. Combining distorted guitar hooks and sighing strings with blissful electronics and heady jam-outs, these songs are sweetly catchy, yet quietly adventurous. Surf-tinged British Invasion (‘Catastrophe’), pleading indie pop (‘Same Old Story’), and free-wheeling psych (‘Flat Battery’) all commingle beautifully, with every track housing vivid contrasts of glistening brightness and rainy-day gloom.

'Cartoons' is out June 23 on vinyl and digital via Deaf Ambitions.

T.R.N 2nd Track Drops From Lost In The Sea Of Paradise

THURSDAY 24 AUGUST

THE COURTNEYS (VANCOUVER) RETURN TO AUSTRALIA

It was The Courtneys tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2015, which saw them cement their signing to Flying Nun Records and today, they’re stoked to announce they’ll be returning to the great southern lands to celebrate the release of their impeccable sophomore LP, The Courtneys II.

The Courtneys II, released earlier this year was an eager wait for new and old fans alike. The band’s ability to create sprawling sun-streaked riffs with bubblegum pop hooks comes into full life on II. While it garnered international acclaim as a “supremely catchy second album,” according to Pitchfork who also lauded “Minnesota” with Best New Track.

This August, the band will provide their Australian and New Zealand audiences a special treat of their blisteringly charming and energy filled sophomore in a live setting.

PSYCHEDELIC PORN CRUMPETS

w. Sunbeam Sound Machine, Masco Sound System + Sofala

Australia’s loudest griddle cake enthusiasts Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have already been through a well-storied existence. Steaming out the blocks in 2015, the band immediately made heads turn, nod and then contemplate space in their hometown of Perth. They quickly released their debut album, ‘High Visceral {Part One}’ which saw PPC supporting the likes of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Dune Rats, Black Mountain, Skegss and completing their first national tour. Their sophomore album High Visceral {Part Two} was released in late April and gained international recognition (mad shakas) after their second national tour around Australia was met with sold out crowds.

The trippy-smut-muffins are traveling the desert once more to share their latest creation What Reality? Records, an independent record label which aims to spread the grass roots of Australia’s local riff-wizardry scene’s and connect hard working bands with eager ears to fuzz down.

HARLEM (AUSTIN)

+ Bleeding Knees Club

Colleen Green (Oakland)

HARLEM (Austin) w. Bleeding Knees Club + Colleen Green (Oakland) Harlem are a band we never thought we'd see live in Australia. Blazing out of Tucson AZ via their self-released debut 2008 album "Free Drugs ;-)", the trio re-settled in Austin TX and signed a multi-record, worldwide deal with Matador for their second album, 2010's "Hippies". The rambunctious record was a perfect storm of devil-may-care scuzz-rock and doo-wop noise, receiving rave reviews including an 8.1 from Pitchfork who frothed "A garage band studied in the ways of 'Nuggets' but clearly enamored with Pixies, they are committed to crafting bubblegum choruses flavored with booze and cigarettes".
