The Durries Announce EP Launch

 

It’s here – the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Your new favourite band The Durries have gone and completed their debut EP, which is surprising considering the no-smoking policy in the studio…

Recorded over 24 hours with nothing but six cartons of beer and just enough pouches of Winnie Blue to keep them going, your old mates and ours are stoked to bring you We Build Schools, a six track EP for your inhaling pleasure. Continuing in their belief that all durries are created equal, they’re giving Emphysema Rock a red hot go with songs like Port Royal, Winnie Blues, Lucky Strike and their first classic tobacco anthem, the poetic Marlboro Gold.

Having played just a handful of shows, including supporting The Beards, the blokes will be hitting the stage again to celebrate the release – darb in hand – and they’re inviting you to come tear your rotten lungs up singing along with them. Based purely on having one of the biggest smokers areas in Brisbane, The Durries will be launching their EP at The Brightside alongside Brisbane legends Surfin’ Bird, and snake-themed band (seriously) Sylvia.

In lead up for their EP’s imminent release, the lads have put out a call to arms on social media to all “durry munchers” to get behind them as they set their sights on the nation’s biggest festival – Splendour In The Grass. Jump on the #durriesforsplendour bandwagon to see them take out the Unearthed competition this year, and “support this ridiculous excuse for a band”. Do it for Bryan!

Twin Haus “Salvia Dali” Live @ Bedlam

In an ever growing list of live performances in the studio, from the likes of Millions, The Creases, The Bennies and more, we are so stoked to present today our latest installment – Twin Haus Live @ Bedlam.

It was the release of their EP Waxen Myraid last year that thrust the Brisbane four piece into the national spotlight, as the boys continue to go from strength to strength with their unique sounds of ambient guitar rock to all out psych jams. Their reputation of jaw-dropping and visceral live performances precedes them, and has seen them play at the inaugural Jungle Love Festival as well as supporting the likes of Northeast Party House.

Performing stand out tracks Otoh and Salvia Dali, the meticulous precision of each four members and their instruments is something you have to see to believe. Flawlessly flowing in between jams and tracks, the four piece really show off just how talented they are, both individually and as a group.

Twin Haus are currently working on new material, and will be supporting Nantes tonight in Brisbane and tomorrow in the Sunshine Coast, as well as performing in Melbourne with Sunbeam Sound Machine and Fierce Mild this Saturday (see here for more details).

Boss Moxi debut LP “Oddball”

1614599_10153217829685730_522600681624802341_oThe moment is finally here; Boss Moxi’s debut album is finished and ready for your ears.

After an agonising two year build up, a crowd funding campaign and one final tour, these Brisbane local legends are ecstatic to present their swansong in the form of the first – and last – debut album, Oddball.

Comprising of 14 tracks including their two lead singles Song of Joan and Nymphomaniac respectively, Oddball is the genre-defying, eclectic mix you’ve been waiting for. Absolutely refusing to be pigeon-holed, Oddball maps the journey the band has undergone to get to this point, showing the growth they’ve achieved and the setbacks they’ve overcome.

LISTEN TO A PRIVATE ADVANCE STREAM OF ODDBALL HERE
Please note, this stream is under a strict embargo until April 17.

Frontman Brayden Doig recently said of the release that, “It’s been a long time coming. It’s been a very long, arduous journey that’s finally come to an end, and we’re super proud of what it’s become.” From the dark and sinister to the all-out jams, the flamenco horns and lead singer Brayden Doig’s trademark growl, Boss Moxi have given the phrase “all or nothing” a whole new meaning.

Praise for Boss Moxi

On Nymphomaniac: “It’s the vocals that really make this track, and it only takes about ten seconds to realize that. Sitting somewhere between Nick Cave and Kirin J Callinan, the theatrical melody has a powerful growl…you can just tell that this track would be completely insane when played live.” – Indie Shuffle

“Straddling further the line of what is sane…this proves an excellent taste of their debut album, which is to be released in 2015.” – The AU Review

“Nymphomaniac is their latest release. The short track is a bit dark, a bit mysterious, and features a growl a la Nick Gave/Gareth Liddiard or even Kirin J Callinan that I just can’t get enough of.” – Howl & Echoes

“If their latest singles are anything to go by, their 14-track debut LP set to be unleashed early next year will be one jazzed-up dark psychedelic dream you’ll want to enter. ” – Hhhhappy

Oddball is on Itunes, Spotify and various other platforms April 17 via Bedlam Records.

Introducing The Durries

Bedlam Records would like to introduce Brisbane newest mega band, The Durries. They’d do it themselves but they just need to step outside for sec…

Comprised of 8 members from Boss Moxi, Twin Haus and Baskervillain, The Durries love durries, plain and simple. They’re don’t discriminate either, as you can tell from their growing catalogue of tracks like Winfield Blue, Port Royal and first single Marlborough Gold – an instant classic like the dart it’s named after.

Bunkering down over 24 hours, with six cartons of beer and more pouches of Winnie Blue than you could poke a (cancer) stick at, The Durries recorded their debut EP; an ode to their shared love of a good ciggie. The passionate, sprawling Marlborough Gold is a heartfelt tune that tugs at even the toughest smoker’s heartstrings. You can really relate to lyrics such as “There’s nothing I’d rather kill myself with than a Marlborough Gold.”

Only three gigs in, including support slots for Brisbane staples LeStuits and The Beards. The Durries have been busy getting their name our there, and getting paid literally in durries by doing so, bringing their own unique brand of “emphysema rock” to the masses.

Boss Moxi Announce ‘Oddball’ East Coast Tour

It’s taken over two years to see Boss Moxi’s dream to record their debut album become a reality. From recording in the hills of Maleny in 2012, to playing their last official show in November last year (with the original lineup of Brayden, Dan, Ollie and Sophie), Boss Moxi are ecstatic to announce the wait is finally over. Oddball is ready.

After the unprecedented success of their Indiegogo campaign – which saw fans pledge $5,675 – Boss Moxi have been working tirelessly to bring this dream to life.

“It’s been a long time coming. It’s been a very long, arduous journey that’s finally come to an end, and we’re super proud of what it’s become,” says lead singer Brayden Doig.

Coinciding with the album officially being released on April 17th, 2015, a slightly altered lineup of Boss Moxi will be hitting Sydney, Melbourne and the Sunshine Coast for one last send off. Their notoriously energetic and electrifying live show will be missed, with these final shows guaranteed to be their finest yet.

Presented by Bedlam Records, and co-presented by Howl & Echoes and Sailor Jerry, this tour will also be sponsored by Triple R.

Romeo Moon Live @ Bedlam

Following on from live sessions including Millions, The Creases and The Bennies, Bedlam Records is proud to present Romeo Moon – Live @ Bedlam.

Hailing from Melbourne, Romeo Moon have spent the last six months working tirelessly in support of their debut EP, Wander. Pulling comparisons from Radiohead to Grizzly Bear and everything in between, it was a tour with Brisbane’s Twin Haus that saw the band head north – right into our studio. It was here we caught them live in action, moving seamlessly from jam to jam, and captivating all who were present with their dulcet tones and intricate arrangements.

Locking in a solid 14 minutes of footage, including a standout performance of their track, Tune In Tune Out, the video captures Romeo Moon doing what they do best. Highlighting just how cohesive and refined they are as a group, yet how personal and emotive they are as well, this is about as intimate as you can get!

Wander is out now via Romeo Moon’s bandcamp.

Guttermouth Australian Tour 2015

This April will see the legendary punk rock band Guttermouth tour Australia, presented by Bedlam. After the disastrous “Farewell” tour in 2013, being homeless and broke and having a stint in a Mexican prison, lead singer Mark Adkin feels he owes it to Australia to make amends, and what better way than to do it all again.

The 15 date tour will see the band hit everywhere from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, to Frankston, Mona Vale and Newcastle. What will no doubt be a wild ride, the guys have also hinted at stopping in at Bedlam to lay down some new music. Adkin said in a recent interview with Music Feeds, “There’s some recording happening with the nice people at Bedlam in Brisbane for an Australian exclusive release when we get out there.” So who knows what the fuck could happen.

Shows are beginning to sell out, with early bird tickets being snapped up extremely quickly. Guttermouth are ready to give fans the tour they deserve, as they’ve always considered Australia their second home.

Boss Moxi Reach Out to Fans for Debut LP

 

Boss Moxi have finally created their debut album, and now they need your help to fund the final process. The 5 piece have been making music together since high school, and it was a fateful trip to Maleny, QLD that saw what would become this album come together. Two years later, two successful singles already released (Song of Joan and Nymphomaniac), countless shows and a tour along the East Coast of Australia, and they are ready to release it to the world. All they need now is a little help to get it along the way.

Setting the goal at $7000, Boss Moxi have set up a number of perks including exclusive streams, hard copies, piss ups, drunk jams and even the offer to have your initials tattooed on Bassist Dan Milad and frontman Brayden Doig. With the money raised, the band will not only be able to master, print, press and release the album  – they’ll also be able to promote their music internationally, as well as hitting the road again for a celebratory tour. They need 700 fans to donate $10 each, and their dream will become their reality.

With band members studying abroad and life getting in the way, this album has been a long time coming for Boss Moxi. Head to Indiegogo for more details of how you can get involved in not just saving them as a band, but also truly beginning their future as one.
