DZ Deathrays – Gebbie Street

Of course there’s great, new music coming out of Australia (when is there not?). Brisbane’s DZ Deathrays introduce a new take on music few have experimented with before. The Sleigh Bells of indie pop, DZ Deathrays has come to be called “thrash pop” and have shown us that the bright and bubbly indie pop we know and love can indeed be complemented with elements of hardcore and thrash punk. It’s a big sound for a two-piece. It may sound a bit odd, but give it a try and learn to fall in love. Check out their song “Gebbie Street” below. Read More…

Closure In Moscow – Kissing Cousins

Progressive Rock band Closure In Moscow formed in 2006 in Melbourne, Australia. Described as a “catchy, yet melodic brand of progressive, avant-garde rock,” the band creates a heavy-sounding, quickly-paced sound often compared to early Saosin, Chiodos, or Coheed and Cambria. The band has been touted for their technical and complex guitar and drums work, with vocals flowing airily overhead. With only one EP and one album under their belt (another is expected later this year), Closure In Moscow have nowhere to go but up. Check out their song “Kissing Families” off their 2009 album First Temple below. Read More…

The Trouble With Templeton – Six Months In A Cast

Australia’s The Trouble With Templeton is one man with big ideas. Writing and recording all the parts, Thomas Calder mixes elements of indie rock, folk, and electronic music into one big, bright sound. Taking the name from an episode of The Twilight Zone, Calder has the vocal ability to match Muse and As Tall As Lions, achieving great power while maintaining a soft sound. Check out the song “Six Months In a Cast” off his EP Six Months In A Cast below. Read More…
