NEW MUSIC FROM J MASCIS // SPOON // CARIBOU

New releases this week from some of our most loved touring acts. J Mascis returns with a follow-up to 2011′s first solo album proper Several Shades Of Why, via new track Every Morning. The new album Tied To A Star is out August 26th but can be pre-ordered now via iTunes.

The mighty Spoon return after a 4 year absence with Rent I Pay, the first track from newie ‘They Want My Soul’. Stellar production from Dave Fridman (Flaming Lips) guarantees the goodness. Available locally from Spunk.

Easily Feel Presents’ most requested act Caribou a/k/a Dan Snaith drops his latest opus the deep-house of Can’t Do With You. Expect to hear this summery track everywhere over the winter months.

New releases mean new tours right? We hope so too.

VALE CHRISTIAN HOULLEMARE

We lost a good one this week when Happy Hate Me Nots bassist, and one-time member of both The New Christs and The Someloves decided to check out early, way too early. Like his close friends and family we are shocked by Christians final decision. “No words” being the most uttered response to the news. Christian was a lovely man, a genuine nice guy and a rick solid bass-player. Rather than mourn, lets celebrate his life via some of his best work, 1987′s Salt, Sour & Brighton from his beloved Happy Hate Me Nots.

Look after each other.

MICK TURNER AT THE GALLERY OF VICTORIA

Another to appear at the NGV’s Italian Masterpieces Friday Nights musical selection is Mick Turner. The Dirty Three guitarist released his latest solo album Don’t Tell The Driver to great acclaim earlier this year and toured Australia as support to Cat Power to promote it. Mick, with full-band, will appear at the NGV on Friday 11th July. Tickets are on-sale now
