BROWSING COLLECTION – Oh, Sweet Sire (live & acoustic)
Sometimes, a raw take is the best take, and this acoustic live version of “Oh, Sweet Sire” by Swedish band Browsing Collection is a stunner. Sure, you can hear the audience, there’s even some laughter, but wow, those vocals and the band going all out, acoustic-style… it really is something to behold.
The tune was recorded live at Sällskapet, in Skövde, Sweden earlier in February.
Browsing Collection is a band that continues to blow me away with their audacious musical choices and skills. They are definitely worth checking out if you like your rock and roll on the fierce and fiery side.
MAVERICK – Longevity
by Maria Savva
“Longevity” is the first single from Sydney punk band Maverick’s new EP, “State of Mind”.
It’s a great punk track with anarchic lyrics that contain a certain depth and insightful observation hidden beneath the fun, catchy sound. This song makes me think of bands such as Faith No More and the Beastie Boys from back in the ’90’s. Definitely one of my favourite releases of 2018 so far. I’m looking forward to the EP.
THE CHATS – Smoko
It’s not very often this happens, but this band kind of have me lost for words. See if the same thing happens to you as happened to me: you listen to this and initially think ‘what was that?’ Then you spend the next week singing it in your head. And you listen to it again and again and decide it’s actually a piece of absolute genius. Apparently, this has gone viral on Youtube, so you might have already heard it. I found it when the band Baby Strange tweeted about it.
The Chats are the second Australian band I’ve featured this week and hail from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. There are some bands, it seems to me, that work out what they want to sound like and work towards it methodically. There are others that know what they like and take all those influences and work them into something new. And then there are those like The Chats that just pick up their instruments and see what comes out. Occasionally, what comes out is just mindblowingly brilliant.
They will probably divide opinion a bit, and that’s fair enough, the best bands do. But I think they’re great. They look so uncool that the sheer defiance of that makes them incredibly cool. And you can’t get much more punk than singing in your local accent using regional slang without a care about whether the wider world gets it or not. Respect.
Also, watch out for the ironic choreography in the video. It’s superb. Everything about this is superb. (Can you tell I really like it?)
I think they’re so good these guys, I’m going to cheat a bit and include another track from them, ‘Mum Stole My Darts’. Darts means cigarettes right? I think so…
