Friday Fisticuffs

Dear Eskiimo promo shot

Eskiimo (who I got very excited about here) are set to win the hearts of de-snottified indie-pop lovers I reckon, and they have a new video out. Gender-bending dillemas, tutus and talk-show hosts ahead. Meet Jack and Jill.

Australia’s The Silents (Rubber Records) are releasing their debut EP, Flicker & Flames in the States (not that Europeans care, lol). They’ve been touring alongside The Vines, and I must say I heard that bell ring when I listened to Little People. A good song nonetheless, a bit of garage rockishness don’t hurt on a Friday night.

When I got this audio file I’d had quite a day and felt like I wanted my bones idle and a sound to match. I checked the mail, clicked the link, and felt my brain collapse into pink and white stripes of music therapy. A pretty mellow song from Ben Swift, one that you might hear on the radio (States-side) soon enough.

Mumm-Ra are pretty busy these days, their next single Out Of The Question will be out come October 23rd. I already reviewed their debut EP here, and I recommend you get the 7″ of the single, it’s got a cover of The Cure’s In Between Days. They’re touring the UK all throughout October and part of November so check their myspace for details.

  1. The Silents don’t sound like The Vines to me but they certainly have a pyschedelic thing going on. Maybe a trippier Small Faces? Just a thought.

  2. Aye, you’re right, but I tend to develop tedious sentences syndrome when I mention a band who has credentials for an entirely new wholesome post, i.e. Small Faces. So comparing The Silents to The Vines just came out, because as I was listening I had to double-check it wasn’t.
