Australian punk malcontents Ausmuteants tore us a new one in 2016 with Band of the Future, an album that skewered taste-making institutions and musicians alike with quick-witted and agitated barbs. The band are ushering in the new year with a clip for the rapid-fire number ‘New Planet’, created for the band by Sean Mcanulty and Alex McLaren.
Weirdo Wasteland has the pleasure of premiering a new release from Reclusive Billionaire – a collaboration between Orlando Furious and Snowy Nasdaq. No Ambition In The Underground is a an intense offering, burning bright and quick like magnesium. The highs are fleeting but they are ecstasy inducing – a high that dissipates seconds after hitting the pleasure centres. A must-listen regardless.
Farewell From Rockhampton by Cracodile is an immediate and gripping album of Australian post-punk and psych, fueled by Bundy rum and pot but containing more energy and vitality than that combination usually affords a creative mind.
In a first for Weirdo Wasteland, here is a premiere of the video for ‘The Other Girls’ by Valentine Dial. The dreamy nostalgia of the song and the heady aesthetic makes for a winning combo. This song is well worth a listen.
