Cass McCombs

Thursday 8th December @ Melbourne Recital Centre, Southbank

Over the last decade, the enigmatic and often elusive Cass McCombs has established himself as one of our generation’s best songwriters. With a series of internationally acclaimed records by critics, fans and fellow musicians alike, McCombs’ craft has been honed with each subsequent release.

This intimate show in Elisabeth Murdoch Hall will be the first chance for Australian audiences to hear new songs from his upcoming record Mangy Love, amongst much-loved material from his back catalogue. The new album is highlighted by a lively, fluid rhythm; it sees the alt folk songwriter using elements of hip-hop and Beat poetry to release his aggressions, fears, and revelations – which is why he so effortlessly produces some of the most emotionally tarnished compositions in the Indie scene today.

Playing at Melbourne Recital Centre
Thursday 8 December, 2016, 7:30pm

Xylouris White

Saturday 17th December @ Melbourne Recital Centre, Southbank

Xylouris White, the unlikely collaboration between Dirty Three drummer Jim White and Cretan lute player George Xylouris, follow-up their sold-out Melbourne club show appearances with a return tour this December.

Xylouris White’s debut album Goats (2014) went to No.1 on the Billboard World Music charts and The Guardian Australia applauded their Sydney Festival 2015 performance, calling it a ‘heavenly union’, the chemistry between ‘Xylouris and White makes for a thrilling musical foray into avant-garde folk.’

'The pensive joy within Goats stems from two musicians of seemingly disparate backgrounds, communicating together with the tools they know best and as well as anyone else who has ever used them. Here though, with new partners and parameters, they’ve struck upon something challenging, wholly inventive, and rewarding.’ Pitchfork

Friday 24th February @ Melbourne Zoo

Californian dream pop and indie-rock band Warpaint are playing Melbourne Zoo Twilights in 2017, supported by Brooklyn’s Big Thief. Warpaint’s studio albums, including their newly released third album Heads Up (2016) – which The Age dubbed “album-of-the-year contender” – emphasize moody atmospheres: gauzy keyboards, hypnotic harmonies and sinister grooves. This will be Warpaint’s third time in Australia, and first since their 2014 slot on the national Laneway Festival.

Big Thief’s music is rooted in the songs of singer Adrianne Lenker, filled with characters and visceral narratives, songs that pivot in the space of a few words. Beat called their debut album Masterpiece “an honest and disarming account of the pain that comes with the gradual erosion of innocence and love.”
