Honestly, you can just tell they're from there by their sound. It's weird.
Well I'm not sure about that, I dont really like most of the more well known Perth bands like Birds of Tokyo, John Butler Trio, and Pendulum (if they count). But despite the cities remoteness they have a great music scene.
They arent at all like Tame Impala but San Cisco (from Freo) have been getting lots of buzz lately.
I wish there were more bands out there like Tame Impala, but in the meantime here's one from Sydney that sound a lot like the Black Keys
My brother listens to these guys a lot. I always heard the music but didn't find out who they were until I saw that video of them performing in a record store, or music store, it looked like. One of the few bands he listens to constantly that I can actually dig.
New album Lonerism is due out in a few weeks, but it's already leaked. Three songs from it are also already out. They are all solid and it sounds like these guys are about to come out with one of the most unique and groundbreaking albums the genre has seen in decades, based on early reviews.
First single is Elephant:
First song to actually come out was Apocalypse Dreams a few weeks ago:
3rd song to come out is called Why Won't They Talk To Me:
Been long mentioned that Kevin Parker had been working on new music that was much more dance and pop influenced compared to his Tame Impala stuff. He had even played some of it as his secret shows over the past couple of years. One of those songs from the secret shows showed up in the last couple of days...
Turns out Mark Ronson and Parker have collaborated on a new song for Ronson's new album. It's called Daffodils and it's awesome.
