SATURDAY 27 JANUARY

MT.MOUNTAIN 'Cathedral' Single launch launch

w Luna Ghost + more

After a banner year that yielded a national tour, a string of sold-out shows, and an ambitious concept album, Perth neo-psych outfit Mt. Mountain kick off 2018 with a brand new single, Cathedral, and a national tour. Few bands bring their music to life onstage like Mt. Mountain.
Armed with an entrancing visual arsenal, these songs unfurl in the flesh like an ancient creature emerging from extended dormancy. Guitars scintillate with even more vibrancy than on wax as ghostly vocal intonations fill the room and rhythmic shifts reverberate like seismic tremors. The result is undeniable: jaws agape, ears ringing and minds warped.

FRIDAY 2 FEBRUARY

THE SEVEN UPS "THE MOUNTAIN PASS / STAMPEDE" AA SINGLE LAUNCH

with Tek Tek Ensemble + DJ Chris Gill

The Seven Ups - The Mountain Pass/Stampede (double single launch) Melbourne’s own 7-piece heavy-groove combo The Seven Ups are dropping two tracks from their upcoming third studio album. Building on their established afro-groove sound, the band add a layer of deep psych and rock'n'roll. Not interested in pleasing anybody the new tracks might come as a shock to those familiar with the bands previous releases.

First single, The Mountain Pass, is your soundtrack to traversing the Himalaya. With bass and drums as bold as a beating heart, the track travels through psych guitars, ambient horns, before verging on stoner rock and coming back again.

The other single, Stampede, sounds exactly as the name suggests. A barrage of noise, with super mean guitar and bass, leading into solos that sound like you're going into battle in the jungle.

123 Agency Presents..

STONEFIELD (Flightless Records) 'Delusion' SINGLE LAUNCH

w Bananagun + Gamjee

Stonefield have been rendering their powerful mosaic of proto-psych, since they were only as tall as the smallest of the strange stone formations that surround their home town in Australia’s rural South-East. From within their stellar nebulae, the four Findlay sisters have pressed light years into days and agitated tidal patterns across the globe, for more than a decade.

Their sophomore record ‘As Above, So Below’ (2016) laid a Sabbath-strata, from which they’ve launched a legion of followers, festival dates and world tours, hitting the road with everyone from Meat puppets to Fleetwood Mac, they’ve traversed in ways that few others have.

Stonefield’s latest single ‘Delusion’, and first for Flightless Records, demonstrates a shift from the hardened psych pop of earlier records toward more prog and heavy metal. Heavy waves of operatic synth and tubular bells ring below guitars with mellotron lines that warn you that humans don't belong in space.

Keep an eye on an album announcement in the new year...

SIRUS 'Singularity Launch Party'

w. SNUFF plus guests

Long regarded as one of Melbourne’s leading Electro-Industrial bands, SIRUS is gaining traction internationally thanks to their uncompromising efforts in production and experimentation with hybrid electronic genres. Reaching to conquer even more sonic territory, SIRUS has begun adding Progressive Metal influence to their already packed arsenal of audio weapons. ‘Singularity’ represents a sizable step away from the sound of the European Industrial scene, and the beginning of a domain all their own.

Supporting them will be Sydney’s Industrial Trip Hop act SNUFF; a band aptly chosen for their own contributions to bridging genre divides in alternative electronica.

HACHIKU SINGLE LAUNCH

w The Ocean Party + June Jones

Hachiku is the brainchild of 23 year old German songwriter and DIY dream-pop bedroom rock producer Anika Ostendorf. Since the release of Hachiku’s debut EP in 2017 through Milk! Records, Ostendorf found a home and 4 piece band in Melbourne. A busy 2017 saw them fill out a residency at the Tote and play shows with Japanese Breakfast, Camp Cope and Fazerdaze. The new single 'Murray's Lullaby' (think: Perfume Genius, Grimes and early Coco Rosie) was written and self-recorded in regional Queensland while Ostendorf was completing 3 months of farm work - a requirement for her Australian visa. You can expect a show full of 'ethereal and catchy melodies, highly tasteful, textural guitar playing and shimmering walls of sound; fabulous three-part vocal harmonies that rise sweetly and wistfully to the heavens and create a very unique brand of left of centre shoegaze' (THE MUSIC).
