The lucious, layered instrumentation and melodic sound of Seabellies is captured beautifully throughout their debut album ‘By Limbo Lake’ - released on August 20. The long awaited album is already drawing critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone (‘bustling, widescreen indie rock’) and jmag (‘a harbinger of brilliant things to come’)  - and will be heard live during September and October when the band play their headline tour across Australia. This Novocastrian 6 piece are set to become one of the country’s most exciting musical exports.

The tour begins in Sydney on September 24 and winds south down the coast to Melbourne before heading back up to Brisbane and then across to Adelaide – taking in Wollongong and Newcastle along the way with very special guests Fire! Santa Rosa, Fire!.

‘By Limbo Lake’ has seen the release of two singles – iTunes recent ‘Single of the Week’ ‘Young Cubs’, and the current single ‘Trans ending’. With ‘Trans ending’ just recently serviced to radio, keep a lookout for the eye catching video - featuring amongst other things an underwater montage and a burning caravan. The video for ‘Trans ending’ is serviced to TV next week.

For a limited time people can pre-order their ticket via the official ticket agencies (check the bands website for details) and receive their ticket AND the debut album for a celebratory price of only $20. Standard tickets are also available for $10, one gig is even FREE!

THE BLACK CROWES release their first-ever double album of all acoustic material, CROWEOLOGY.  Due out TODAY, August 6, 2010 in Australia, it features new arrangements of their best-loved songs and the band’s catalogue picks.

CROWEOLOGY spans THE BLACK CROWES’ revered catalog with acoustic renditions of 20 songs from their two decades of cosmic rock 'n' roll.  Commemorating the 20th anniversary of their multi-platinum debut, 1990's SHAKE YOUR MONEYMAKER, CROWEOLOGY gives listeners an intimate retrospective, stripping away these fan and band favorites like “Jealous Again,” “Remedy,” “She Talks To Angels” and “Wiser Time” to their very essence through brand new recordings, captured in 2009 at Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles.  Paul Stacey produced CROWEOLOGY.

In order to thank fans for 20 years of support, CROWEOLOGY will be priced at the cost of a single album.  In addition, it will be available on vinyl and as an iTunes LP.

DJ Fresh to release “Kryptonite"

  • Written by Robert Manser

British beats mastermind DJ Fresh (aka Dan Stein) is set to release his sophomore album ‘Kryptonite’ this September 10th through Inertia.

A rocket-fuelled ride that straddles the boundaries of drum’n’bass, breaks and dubstep, ‘Kryptonite’ is a masterpiece of sound design from one of the scene’s most pioneering figureheads.

In the making for over three years, ‘Kryptonite’ is a juggernaut of an LP that flickers with ease between his trademark caustic breakneck beats, feel-good vocal tracks and even some slamming dub-step manoeuvres.

Having blown his way into the scene as the fore-figure of NME’s “Wu-Tang of drum & bass”, Bad Company, back in 1998, Dan Stein has since “perhaps been the biggest influence on drum & bass we’ve ever known” according to Knowledge Mag.

With classics to the BC name such as “The Nine” (voted Best Track Of All Time by members of D&B Arena), Mo-Fire (no.22 in national charts) and many more, Fresh went solo in 2003 producing the no.11 summer chart hit “Barcelona” and even a no.4 hit for the Pet Shop Boys.

Having produced seminal tracks on labels such as Ram, V and Metalheadz and earning almost every accolade going with a DJ schedule to match, Fresh now resides on his own world- famous Breakbeat Kaos label with co-founder Adam F and continues to flourish.
