Dorsal Fins Recommend Their Fave Underground Jams
The Melbourne based 9-piece Dorsal Fins are playing at our beloved LOADED on the 27th of August alongside some local favourites of ours, Pop Cult and These Guy.
We asked Liam to recommend some of the band’s favourite underground jams and boy are we impressed. Those who are passionate about the scene know it the best, of course. We’ve added every single one of these babies to our playlist. Thanks Dorsal Fins!
Jacky Winter – ‘You Gotta Give Me Something’
“Phil aka Jacky Winter is a great friend who’s been making stellar music for years. Jacky Winter is a relatively new moniker he started after hearing Wu Tang for the first time a few years ago. I love the way he manages to combine tasteful & crackly MPC beats, with good old fashioned cracking songwriting. Onya Phil.”
Terry – ‘8 Girls’
“El and I saw Terry play live on air at Triple R a few months ago; it was really stunning. Featuring members of all my fave bands (Total Control / Dick Diver / UV Race / Primo & on & on), Terry is also super cute and made up of two couples. Live, they are raw but their songs shine through. 8 Girls is one of my favourite Terry songs – written about 8 ‘girls’ of Oz Parliament at the time. Love it.”
Braille Face – ‘Because’
“Jarrad, Jordan (aka Braille Face) and I lived together last year. In that time Jordan wrote 12 albums. One every month. He put them up on soundcloud as he completed them…. This year, he’s taken the best of the best and whittled it down into one scintillating album with the help of Tim Shiel and Gotye. Because is the first taste and it is really a stunning work of art. Listen for yourself.”
Lost Animal – ‘Do The Jerk’
“Ex-Tropical is one of my favourite albums full stop, and I can wait for follow up, You Yang, to come out later in the year. Lost Animal played at the Remote Control Records showcase a month ago and it was surreal! Great to see someone doing something really different and interesting as a solo performer. Lost Animal 4 ever! ”
Dorsal Fins will be releasing their new single Sedated at LOADED and here at SOS, we highly recommend. You know what, I’m not even going to give a description of it. Just listen to it and you’ll be hooked.
