Nashville's United Record Pressing have pressed and delivered the 180 gram 10 inch vinyl. Limited to an edition of 100 pressings with Amber Diss' tasty - elegant even! - hand screen-printed design; each copy produced has uniquely and lovingly hand-crafted, screen-printed and assembled cover packaging. Within, these four infectious tracks are songs whose contagion reverberates with raw pop hues. Optimistically cautious and generously pessimistic, TENDER BONES synthesise urgent affective rhythms with distinctive baritones and a laconic ethereality. TENDER BONES' recording was engineered and mixed by Jake Phillips (from Emma Russack and Hot Palms) and mastered by master masterer Greg Wadley (Hi God People, Clag, Beaches, Kim Salmon and The Scientists). http://tenderbones.bandcamp.com/ Tasty Velvet Underground inspired sample "piss-take" taster following below here:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_k7201Jqos Portland's I Vacation In Your Hell review TENDER BONES thusly: - "Brilliance is brewing in the land of the south. These Melbourne bitches are about to drop a full EP in both digital and vinyl formats which is worth your time. I am liking the lead track "The Dark" mainly because I feel that way generally most of the time. That's 99.7% of the time to be exact. I can't pinpoint what makes this track so infectious. Is it the slow drooling note progressions that grinds the listener along? Maybe it is the distant voice, that of someone who is poetically letting it ride? There are many questions in life, but one thing is certain, I enjoy shoegaze much like I enjoy fish - raw. It tastes better that way. It allows you to taste the flavors more fully. Call it shoegaze sushi if you will. Tender Bones calls it ".evocative tone bending moods which will reverberate within your soul and provide resolutions to all of life and death's difficult problems". I couldn't have said it better." http://ivacationinyourhell.com/2014/05/06/tender-bones-the-dark/ The TENDER BONES - a love affair of the heart and the mind; the body and the soul and spirit... So; How do you feel? You don't really know how you feel do you? Why? Because you haven't heard the new TENDER BONES debut 4-track 10 inch vinyl record... Here, are expressions of a new dimension . in honesty . purity ...and healing . The TENDER BONES . not a probe ...not an exploration . not an experiment ...but a whole complete reality . ...the TENDER BONES ... IS YOU . . TENDER BONES . THIS . IS . YOU . . you'll find love... YOU WILL FIND . YOUR . LOVE ... . your hopes . your regrets . your fears . your DESIREs . YOUR REALITY . THE TENDER BONES ... . a TENDER BONES record will help you . TELL YOU . how to feel . listen . . JUST LISTEN . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_k7201Jqos http://tenderbones.bandcamp.com/

    The Buzzrays : 7.20 - 8.00 Mallory Vanetti : 8.20 - 9.00 The Bear Hunt : 9.20 - 10.00 THE BUZZRAYS The Buzzrays are an original five piece Brisbane based alternative rock band inspired by grunge, punk rock and sixties garage guitar. The Buzzrays started gigging around Brisbane in 2013 but the band members have a long history of playing in bands in Brisbane and Perth. Their “Circus” E.P. was released in late 2013, hitting the 4ZZZ Top 20 charts, and is available on Bandcamp. The Buzzrays were also selected to record a track (Silver Linings) at Tym Guitar’s inaugural “12 in a dozen” event. 2014 sees The Buzzrays gigging further and heading back to the studio. The Buzzrays don't use phasers, they set distortion pedals to stun. MALLORY VANETTI A songtress from the moment she came to life, Mallory has been busy creating the band you will no doubt be hypnotised by. And I'm not just talking about Mallory (seriously, this is one good looking band)! But even more mesmorising than their on-stage presence, is the intricate music melodies inter-woven with upbeat drum rhythms that are sure to get you all up and dancing. THE BEAR HUNT For a band that originally came from Townsville, these guys aren't half bad! Not that I'm dissing Townsville, but seeing as these guys arrived on the scene in Brisbane last year, I'm gonna go ahead and blame them for summer. ALL OF IT. However you'll forgive them for the ridiculous amount of sweat you will generate (even in winter), once these guys kick your balls off with their brand of alt-psych-rock. A band that knows how to get you in the mood by a singer that will soothingly scream lyrics at you, guitar solos that will make you drool, amazing drum techniques that need to be seen to be appreciated (the best description here would be flailing) and smooth bass lines that you will want to curl up with at night and cuddle.
