Farm Fresh Sounds is a new weekly wrap where I’ll be bringing you some of my favourite new releases and packaging them in a playlist alongside a throwback tune from each decade starting at the sixties. I’ll be keeping the throwback’s relevant in some way to the week that was.
To kick things off this week we have the brand new single Khruangbin which comes off their forthcoming album which arrives on June 26th. Another highlight of the new releases is the latest single from Paradise Club ‘All You Got’, the Adelaide band are the latest signing to Farmer & The Owl and they’ll release their self titled debut album on July 17th.
The music world lost some influential figures over the last week or so. My 60’s throwback comes from The Pretty Things, who’s front man Phil May passed last week. The 70’s throwback comes via Germany’s Kraftwerk, Florian Schneider who cofounded the influential band passed-away recently. Closer to home Richard Lane, the original bass player from Perth power pop legends The Stems also passed over the last week, featured here is a song he wrote on their classic 80’s album ‘At First Sight’. The 90’s throwback comes from Supergrass, the UK group released their incredible debut album ‘I Should Coco’ twenty five years ago last week when they were just teenagers.
We can’t get out and see live music at the moment and if we could, some old friends of mine Nebula were set to be touring Australia about now, so my 00’s throwback comes from their album ‘Charged’. While this weeks 10’s throwback celebrates the fact that The Pinheads ‘Is This Real’ album is a year old this week.
Back to new music and there was a really powerful new album dropped from Sydney’s Concrete Lawn via Urge Records, Fontaines DC announced a brand new records and with it gave us a taste of a new single, Carseat Headrest released one of the best albums so far this year and Floodlights unleashed a new single via Spunk Records.
Sleaford Mods impressed with their visit to Australia earlier this year including an incredible set here in Wollongong at Farmer & The Owl Festival amd they have just released a bit of a collection album, while a favourite of mine from Sydney Party Dozen also returned with a killer new single, the duo are making some of the most interesting music around at the moment. Leah Senior released an incredible record last year via Flightless and she is back with a new single and Finally we have a tune from the recent RVG album that has been spending a lot of time on my turntable.
