While in NY, I did a chain-letter style interview with Impose Magazine. Read my thoughts about Marvin Gaye, CMJ and water right here.

We’re really excited about this. Next week, we’re coming to America for shows in New York City (CMJ) and Los Angeles. A week of special performances in each city, including an LA show with the wonderful Cult of Youth.

We really, really hope you can come out and see this.

Our friends over at Vice had some nice things to say about us and premiered a video for the Hurtsville b-side, “3 Stomachs/No Weekend.”

The b+w video was directed by Wilk, and premiered today over at Impose.

We’ve also got some very exciting Jack Ladder news to announce in the coming days as well, so stay tuned.

Former KCRW music director  and “Morning Becomes Eclectic” host for 10 years, Nic Harcourt has a new radio show, “Connections” for 88.5 KCSN Los Angeles, WEXT New York, WERS Boston and WPFK Louisville. He was kind enough to include “Cold Feet” in his latest broadcast from a few nights ago. Listen to the entire show here.

Today, Holloweyed Records releases Jack Ladder and The Dreamlanders‘ Hurtsville in various formats to North America.

To celebrate the release, the folks over at Spinner will host an exclusive stream of the album in its entirety. Listen here. 

Also, Steve Jones (of Sex Pistols fame) recently played that DM Edit of single “Cold Feet” on KROQ.

Purchase Hurtsville:

Limited, 180 gm vinylDownload card, insert, 300gsm uncoated card covers & hand-numbered photo/lyric book.

ABOUT - Recorded in the expansive NSW countryside at the 115-year-old Blackburn Estate, this collection is cinematic, brooding and impacting in its delivery; it’s easy to say Hurtsville finds the two-time Australian Music Prize nominee at his absolute best. From its vintage production techniques (digital metalizer anyone?) and evocative symbolism of regret, subversion, death, misguided love and panic, Ladder and his cohorts deliver a set that’s deeply from the heart, its grip unyielding.
