Every week on the Polyphonic three we highlight new and emerging music from around the way and this week was no exception. Kicking of the trio we played TEENAGERSINTOKYO.
It seems as though no time at all has passed since TEENAGERSINTOKYO first burst into our ears in 2008. After some intense preparation the party of 5 have released their debut album Sacrifice to much acclaim. The album is bursting with musical landscapes that conjure up images of fire and doom. Hard wedgy bass lay beneath sharp slicing guitars flying in on an edgy, almost twitchy drumbeat. Samantha Lim’s delicate vocals rise like the springtime sun to light the scene and tell the world that a good time is about to come. It’s a brave new art-pop album with enough dazzle to bewitch and entice us all. It’s out this week now on Stomp.
Happiness, pure joy filled, feel good happiness wrapped up in music and bubbles. That’s the Magic Kids. Their sound is so over the top and fun drenched that you can’t help but like it. Dizzily infectious, annoyingly upbeat and so spectacularly full of sunshine you’ll need factor 50 when listening. Some may find it too much, but they’re likely to be one who stay in doors when the suns up and scorn the simple pleasures of this world. The hipsters over at The Feeder are hosting a stack of free & legal mp3’s waiting for you.
The Delta Riggs make up the hat trick in this week’s Polyphonic Three. Riding bare back into town from sleepy Peats Ridge, these laid back swamp rockers know a trick or two about writing songs and getting people up yonder to dance to ‘em.
Wearing their rhythm & blues roots proudly and authentically on their worn denim sleeves, these moonshine swilling banjo playin’ good timers got our hips a shakin’ with their latest number soul train. It’s music for musos. Live, they’d be awesome tub thumpin fun and you can see them for ye selves this Saturday at the SoundSchool gig in the Beach Rd. Put your skinnies on and a plaid shirt and embrace the hubbub.
