I’ve posted about A Town In The City before but Im pretty sure that was a while ago now. For a band thats still finishing highschool, these guys sound damn good. I really hope some industry guy occasionally flicks through this blog, cos I’d love it if they got picked up early. Life For A Little Ghost is a little synth-infused, post punk number, definitely a high recommendation. Mr. K’s Arcade Invertables is a track from last year and just as good, with a bit of a TV On The Radio feel to it.
We also have another exclusive here at waves. Bachelor Of Arts, from right here in Melbourne, have been playing for a while now and are just about to release their debut album. A.M.P.M. is the new single off said album. If you like what you hear, theyre playing for the next few Wednesdays (FOR FREE) at the Old Bar on Johnston St and with some amazing bands. On the 16th its Breaker Morant and The Diamond Sea (go seeee), and supporting These New Puritans on the 14th of August.
Last up is a band I only recently got onto called Crystal Stilts, from Brooklyn. Id say they sound a bit like Joy Division but Im getting too much more of an upbeat sound out of the guitars. Maybe if Ian Curtis wasn’t quite so glum, this might be what they’d sound like. A dash of harmonica really lightens them up, in a good way.
