FRIDAY 28 OCTOBER

THE SOFT MOON (USA)
w. special guests NUN

Luis Vasquez never intended for The Soft Moon to reach the public's ears; for him, music has always been about self-actualization rather than self- aggrandizement. Nevertheless, the bleak, hushed sounds he created years ago in his small Oakland apartment bubbled to the surface and 2010 saw his debut LP, 'The Soft Moon,' released on Captured Tracks rise to critical acclaim. Pitchfork's 8.1 review stated that Vasquez made "oblivion seems like an enticing prospect" and, indeed, listeners were immediately drawn into his murky musical wasteland, swathed in the moody atmospheres of jagged dark wave and wayfaring post-punk. For them, and for Vasquez, there was no turning back. The 'Total Decay' EP and 'Zeros' emerged soon after, and in 2015 Vasquez returned with The Soft Moon's most introspective and focused album to date: 'Deeper.’
The Soft Moon as a full live band visits Australia for the first time this October.

POISON CITY RECORDS PRESENTS...

SCREAMFEEDER 'Karen, Trust Me' TOUR

w. special guests

There’s still a while until the highly anticipated eighth album from Brisbane indie rock mainstays Screamfeeder drops in 2017, but luckily we’ve got your fix right here with the premiere of new single Karen Trust Me.
A fire was lit after the band embarked on a tour to support the re-release of their first five albums on vinyl (thank you, Poison City), and that snowballed into their first new material in 10 years dropping late 2015 in single Alone In The Crowd.
Karen Trust Me is the band’s third new single since kicking things back into gear, and it’s clear they’ve managed to maintain their ‘90s charm while also injecting new life into their celebrated sound. They also still know their way around an earworm.

The band’s latest single will see them hit the road again in November for a five-date national tour that kicks off Nov 3 at The Curtin, Melbourne.

FRIDAY 4 NOVEMBER

THE LAURELS 'Sonicology' ALBUM LAUNCH
with LOWTIDE + Lalic

It’s been four years since The Laurels released their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Plains’ and many wondered if they’d ever hear from the band again. Their second release ‘Sonicology’ is a result of their determination to reinvent themselves and their desire to produce something not bound by time or genre. Growing particularly fond of golden age hip hop, the rawness and grittiness of hip hop production felt new and inspiring to a band that had become renowned for their lush sonic textures. Fans had a taste of the record in mid 2015 with first single ‘Zodiac K’, a synthesizer odyssey with hard hitting drums and spoken word that showcased a step away from the guitar heavy psychedelia that the band had become known for.

Contrary to popular belief, The Laurels have not spent the past four years sitting in their lounge room punching cones. They’ve overcome adversity (and hundreds of annoying questions) to craft an eclectic collection of music which they are thrilled to share with you.
