Methyl Ethel
Methyl Ethel
Methyl Ethel is the uninhibited alt-pop project from Perth musician Jake Webb. The band started in 2013, as an outlet for the reverb soaked home recordings Webb was working on whilst developing his ambient and textural guitar playing in a variety of local outfits. Methyl Ethel has since blossomed into one of the most critically revered and publicly embraced acts coming out of Western Australia in some time.
Built from the ground up in various bedrooms, friends’ studios and quiet caverns over 2013, the exceptional EP diptych Guts and Teeth, which explore themes of anxiety, disillusionment and stasis, were released in quick succession. These intricate tapestries of melody, dripping with lush eccentricity, ascended through the ether and onto the airwaves, with Indie Shuffle, Happy, triple j, FBi Radio, 3RRR and RTRFM amongst others all taking note.
So far, 2015 has seen the band hone their sound, on debut LP Oh Inhuman Spectacle and its accompanying singles Twilight Driving and Rogues (awarded 2015 WAM Pop Song of the Year). Recorded in the same manner as its predecessors, Oh Inhuman Spectacle masterfully blends pop and esotericism to create an undeniable piece of work, which has landed at the top of many mid-year album lists and been championed by supporters new and old.
After a year of relentless touring, sharing stages with the likes of San Cisco, Holy Holy, Sunbeam Sound Machine and Courtney Barnett, Methyl Ethel are now a headliner in their own right. With their hometown album launch hitting capacity in a matter of minutes, and their Melbourne date selling out weeks in advance, the excitement surrounding the act and their breathtaking live show is palpable. October will see the band take a break from working on the follow up to Oh Human Spectacle to head stateside for CMJ, with a busy Australian summer to follow.
Vorhees
Vorhees is the nom de guerre of Dana Wachs, an audio engineer, musician, and sound designer based in New York City.
Slow Caves
Slow Caves
Inspired by late nights in Hollywood, high speed car chases, red eye flights and vintage skateboard videos, the synth-punk musings of SLOW CAVES bleed a James Dean-esque revelry that explodes into a rich baritone croon.

There’s adrenaline, sonic vibration, blistering guitars and throbbing bass lines. It blends and molds together to create something visceral, yet refined.

It’s badass. And like any crash, you just can’t turn away.

Originally from Northern Colorado, SLOW CAVES came together as kindred spirits seeking to create quality music that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end. Experimenting with synthesizers and backed by the “who gives a damn” ethos of punk rock, the delivery is fast, loud and in your face. Jakob Mueller’s dulcet tones lure you in to a false sense of security, only to be spat out the other end in a high-powered and fuzz-laden declamation. Jackson Lamperes sets the beat from the back, smashing the skins, combined with David Dugan and Oliver Mueller’s energetic guitars and driving bass, carry you deliriously along a perilous line.

It's a line that leads you through the night towards its hedonistic possibilities, leaving you wondering whether you should be dancing on tables or speeding down Santa Monica freeway in reverse.

So heed this advice and don’t be fooled by the name: SLOW CAVES will keep you moving - and have you exiting their dark crevice exhausted, confused, yet totally satisfied.

Make sure you get in on the mayhem.
