The muses of La Musa: Julia Jacklin

Compared to the great ladies of contemporary folk such as Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen and Courtney Barnett, the Australian singer Julia Jacklin has sneaked onto the best of the year list with a surprisingly mature album that travels from the rock and roll of the fifties to the best of contemporary folk through songs which include “Coming Of Age” and “Pool Party”. A delightful timeless album that Jacklin, who is just twenty-five, imbues with her elegant and velvety voice to become one of the surprising phenomenon of 2016. This year she will be playing at Primavera Sound.

Music by Bergman: Flyte

Rising Alternative rock stars Flyte have released their latest track ‘Victoria Falls’. The London-based four piece are currently out in Australia recording their debut album with Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett). ‘Victoria Falls’ is the second track off Will Taylor’s (lead vocals, guitar), Sam Berridge’s (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), Jon Supran’s (drums, backing vocals) and Nick Hill’s (bass, backing vocals) upcoming debut album. They’re a scratchy funk band who also do jerky new wave indie and mature MOR.

 

 

 

The muses of La Musa: Mitski

She made a name for herself with two self released in which she made it clear that she wanted to tear down all singer songwriter conventions, but it was the album “Bury Me At Makeout Creek”, her debut on Dead Oceans, that confirmed that this New York based Japanese artist was a sort of enigmatic cross between the Cocteau Twins and Courtney Barnett. With her new album “Puberty 2”, Mitski Miyawaki has done nothing more than underline her ability to alternate melancholic rock with outspoken ballads smouldering with intensity and has done more than enough to make a place for herself on the best of the year lists.

Music by Bergman: Methyl Ethel

Hailing from the remote fringes of Perth, Western Australia, linchpin Jake Webb started Methyl Ethel in 2013 as a way of getting his bedroom recordings out in the public domain. The assonant moniker takes its name from the chemical compound Webb’s father uses to make fibre-glass – methyl ethyl ketone peroxide. Webb wrote, played and recorded everything on full-length debut “Oh Inhuman Spectacle”. Crafted in isolation, its understated psychedelic pop quickly drew positive plaudits from local media, leading Webb to recruit Chris Wright (drums) and Thom Stewart (bass) –friends from the tight-knit and thriving music scene in Perth–. With “Oh Inhuman Spectacle” given a national release by local label Dot Dash Recordings, Methyl Ethel’s impact on home soil has been palpable. The trio has grown into a must-see live act and shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize alongside Courtney Barnett and fellow Perth act Tame Impala. Now, having joined 4AD, Methyl Ethel have the opportunity to take their music to a greater audience. And probably will.

Friend and sharing label with Courtney Barnett, one of the new sensations of Australian folk, Fraser A. Gorman has started to follow in the footsteps of his compatriot producing an elegant and sober country-folk that is brilliant and impeccably crafted. “Slow Gum”, his first album on the Australian label Milk Records, is an authentic revelation that is full of echoes of timeless music, old melodies and other-worldly remnants of folk and pop. A winning hand in which the Melbourne artist has all he needs to become an Australian alternative to M. Ward. Tonight at 10pm in Teatro Latino.
