SHERLOCKâS DAUGHTER â“ Song for Old People Sydney five piece SHERLOCKâS DAUGHTER have just completed their debut EP with Jono Ma from Lost Valentinos. In their short career theyâve already toured with School of Seven Bells and Temper Trap as well as rocking festivals like Playground Weekender and the Laneway Festival. They are currently working on their debut album, but here is a track off the aforementioned EP. INFUSION â“ So Soon Itâs been a while since weâve heard from Melbourne based trio, INFUSION. Since releasing their second album Six Feet Above Yesterday in 2004, the band have been extremely busy. They have taken home two ARIA awards and circled the globe a number of times, playing some of the biggest festivals such as Coachella, Roskilde, Glastonbury, Big Day Out and Splendour in the Grass amongst others. Theyâve also played alongside icons like David Bowie, N.E.R.D, Basement Jaxx and New Order. Most of the past two years has been spent in the studio working on their highly anticipated new album, All Night Sun Light. Self-produced and self-released on their own imprint, Futuresque, here is a sneaky first taste of the album ahead of itâs release in June 2009. PARADES â“ Hunters This Sydney based five piece first came to our attention when they walked in one of our Music Open Days with a bunch of demos in tow. We instantly shared their tracks on the air, all of which the band crafted in their makeshift studio, a garage in Sydney's Northwest. They continue to work in their home studio, the latest offering being their debut EP. On the Beforecast this month we have the second single off the EP. ROYAL HEADACHE â“ Surprise Formed at the tail end of 2008, this Sydney Four-piece spend their time jamming in their boatshed rehearsal space in Sydneyâs western suburbs. Theyâve only played a handful of shows so far and are looking to put out a 7" some time this year. For the moment their DIY recording approach is to set up a dictaphone in the corner of the jam room. Hereâs the first results, a track called Surprise off their demo. TEMPER TRAP - Science of Fear (HERVE remix) â“ EXCLUSIVE Melbourne born, now London based fourtet TEMPER TRAP caused quite the stir with Sweet Disposition, the first track from their forthcoming debut album, Conditions. Produced by Jim Abbiss who is responsible for records by UNKLE, Arctic Monkeys and Adele, the lads were named as one of only fifteen rising stars of 2009 by the BBC. Conditions is due out in June 2009. Exclusively to the Beforecast this month is a remix of the latest single, Science of Fear by HERVE. Herve is London producer/songwriter/DJ Joshua Harvey, who also records as The Count (as in The Count & Sinden), Voodoo Chilli, Action Man, Dead Soul Brothers, Speaker Junk and Young Lovers.
