On the eve of Weird Place Fest 2, Melbourne’s NOUGHTS are dropping its second EP Content, packed full of furious and speedy punk. Laced with a form of pressing and encompassing frenzy, Content forcibly grabs the ears of listeners and earnestly imparts its message – seemingly as if time is of the essence and everything hinges on our comprehension.

Sydney post-punk outfit Solid Effort is releasing its second EP Echo Chambers of the Inner West, giving the honours of first play to Weirdo Wasteland. The group weaves a sonic tapestry made up of disparate threads of punk, post-punk and pysch, where cryptic lyrics and social critiques add texture and emotion adds colour.
