Client Liaison

Melbourne, VIC

Client Liaison are masters of infectious turn-of-the-nineties synth pop and are one of the winners of our Laneway Festival competition. The duo will be opening the Moreland St Stage of the Melbourne Laneway Festival this Saturday, Feb 1.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music - how did you develop your sound?
Informed by the production values of the late 80's and early 90's, we align ourselves with the effervescent sound of early digital synthesizers. We grew up on the music television of this era. Linking sound and image is a very important process for us.

You’re one of the winners of our Laneway competition. What can the crowd at Laneway in Melbourne expect from the Client Liaison live show?
Lights, music, dance, smoke machines; basically an 11am dance party.

How and when did you two meet?
Glamorgan Primary school in the late 1990's.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
'For the best long lasting result, use a Tasmanian Huon pine when building or renovating your outdoor deck', Shirley Strachan via the 'Our House' TV series 1993 - 1999.

What are your plans for Client Liaison in 2014?
Continue our efforts amongst the diplomatic cocktail circuit, produce more videos and release an album mid year.

Australian music is…?
...in a very healthy state!

Baker Boy

( )

Melbourne, VIC

Born in Darwin and raised in the remote NT communities, rapper, actor and dancer, Danzel Baker AKA Baker Boy, is three times the charm!  At just 20 years old, he plans to be the first Indigenous rapper to rap in his Yolngu Matha language. 

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
 
My sound was developed around the influences of my traditional music fused with my current involvement with hip hop music and dance. I wanted to be the first Indigenous rapper to rap in language, mine being Yolngu Matha.
 
I worked with a producer Tobiahs Fakhri to create the track Cloud9 to include not only modern hip hop elements that I connect with but also Yidaki (Didgeridoo) and the language Yolngu Matha for traditional sounds. The perfect fusion of my two worlds that I have grown up with. 
 
What's your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
 
I haven't had one stand out inspirer that has lead me to making music. I more saw an opportunity for Indigenous musicians and rappers to express themselves in language rather than English. Music and dance have always been an integral part of my life from growing up in Milingimbi and this only developed more since moving away and schooling and further into my career with Djuki Mala and Indigenous Hip Hop Projects.
 
If anything my dance work has inspired me and allowed this to happen. Influences like Yothu Yindi, Gurrumul, Gawurra and Yirrimal showed me to be proud of where I am from and use my voice through rap to communicate my messages.
 
What can punters expect from a Baker Boy live show?
 
They can expect to see a lot of dancing, energy, I'll play the Yidaki, hear language Yolngu Matha and a young handsome proud Yolngu boy - Baker Boy.
 
What's the best advice you've been given and who was it from?
 
I remember my dad telling me, 'if you have a goal, know its not going to be easy, but if you put your mind to it, work hard and reach for the sky reach until you grab it with your bare hands'. He always tells me 'keep going there's no limit'. I'm pretty much following my dads' footsteps but trying to go next level.
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
 
Brolga by Yirrimal!!! My poison cousin.
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
 
I would play them Wiyathul by Gurrumul. Just play the whole album actually !!
 
You're the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
 
I'd tell them put Cloud9 - Baker Boy ;)
 
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
 
I saw my friends band Jakubi. They are a home grown Melbourne band that are so hard working and crazy talented.
 
Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.
 
Briggs and Yirrimal both inspired me and got me thinking about the whole fusion of traditional and current hip hop. They both are so incredible in their own way with such different genres and sounds and both proud Indigenous men.
 
What are your plans for 2017?
 
My plans for 2017 are to continuing writing more music in my Baker Boy style, and help two worlds collaborate and merge to one as I only see one. I will continue dancing and working in remote indigenous communities with IHHP inspiring youth and sharing my story and journey.
 
I want to be the next David Gulpilil and have started acting and already feature on a few movies so hope to do more of that. Just want to keep doing Baker Boy rap, dance and live life to the fullest, be free.

Japanese Wallpaper

Melbourne, VIC

This year's Unearthed High winner Japanese Wallpaper has just released his brand new single, featuring Jesse Davidson. It follows on from outstanding collaborations with Wafia and Pepa Knight, but who else is on the 17 year-old's 'collaborator wishlist'? And what are his plans for the rest of 2014? Find out below...

Read Interview

What’s the first thing you’re gonna do when you turn 18?
Most likely just go and see some bands - not being able to get into venues is definitely the worst part of being underage.
 
Who’s on your collaborator wish-list?
Hmm… I think Bon Iver would be pretty beautiful, his voice is so superb. Phoebe (ex-Snakadaktal) would be awesome too.
 
On average, how much time do you spend in your bedroom making tunes each week?
I’m not sure how many hours but definitely a lot! It’s a great way to procrastinate and avoid schoolwork…
 
What’s your go-to snack when making music?
Definitely this frozen yoghurt ice-cream thing that Mum has started buying. It doesn’t last very long when I’m recording ;)
 
What’s your vision for the ultimate Japanese Wallpaper live show?
I’d love to make it a band-driven show at some point - I love playing in bands and I think that with a little tweaking the music would really lend itself to it.
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
Hmm, 'Pickles From The Jar' by Courtney Barnett would be a pretty good one. Or maybe 'Void' by Seekae. Depends why they were crying in the first place I guess!
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
Sorry to use Seekae twice but their song 'You’ll' is a definite tearjerker. Works on me every time.
 
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
That Polographia and Cosmo’s Midnight collab always goes down well! Or maybe an Andras Fox track. Depends on the party.
 
What are your plans for the rest 2014?
I definitely want to do some more touring and keep developing my show, so hopefully there will be plenty of time for that in the school holidays…

Alice Ivy

( )

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne producer Alice Ivy is one of the winners of our Listen Out competition. She'll be taking her blissed out soul-inspired beats to the 909 stage of Listen Out in Melbourne this Saturday, September 24.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
I have always been super into soul music. I used to play in an all girl soul band, we used to arrange old soul classics by Marvin Gaye, Etta James, and also soul stuff by artists such as Jill Scott. Playing this music is what made me obsessed with it. A few years ago I was introduced to J Dilla and The Avalanches, and I was really inspired to make music like that - beat driven sampled soul that just made you feel good.  Once I got into production at uni I realised this is what I wanted to do!
 
What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
Creating music that makes people feel good and excited. I love that adrenaline rush you get when you listen to a song that you just love, I try and keep this in mind whenever I write. 
 
What can punters expect from an Alice Ivy live show?
A really sweaty good time. 
 
What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
'Always BYO Linen' - Melinda Dine. I learnt the hard way on tour last weekend. 
 
What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
The Avalanches - Because I'm Me
 
What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
Natalie Imbruglia - Shiver
 
You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
Christine Anu - My Island Home, classic Australiana banga. 
 
What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
Last local show I went to was Alexander Bigg's single launch. It was phenomenal, if you haven't heard him you need to check this guy out. 
 
Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.
There are so many bands in Melbourne who are absolutely killing it at the moment. Particularly recently at BigSound, it was so great seeing so many Melbourne bands up there showcasing! Artists that really inspire me are those who are amazing at what they do musically and who are just genuine people. I'm talking about artists such as Ainslie Wills and Alex Lahey - dead set legends. 
 
What are your plans for the rest of 2016?
The rest of 2016 is looking insane, I am lucky enough to be playing some pretty amazing festivals and tours this summer! Will do some writing in between ;)

Approachable Members Of Your Local Community

Get to know this week's triple j Unearthed, Approachable Members Of Your Local Community!

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

We developed our sound fairly organically by collaborating with one another and jamming at home – on and off, we’ve actually been playing music together for some years now. In 2017, we decided to take our ideas to the studio and recorded our first few songs, all lo-fi funk and groove. More recently we have been crafting ideas which we take to each other - adding to each other’s ideas until we arrive at a song. Then we move into the production stage where we start fleshing out how exactly we want the song to feel and sound.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

Our greatest source of inspiration is the musical process itself. We are all passionate about making music. It is a wonderful creative process filled with emotion, commentary, thoughts and reflections which we can share with the world.

What can punters expect from an Approachable Members of Your Local Community live show?

The Approachable Members show is always a party - filled with groove, singalongs, outstretched stage banter and everything in between. We love to transform the space we’re in, we’ve converted venues before into your neighbourhood street, complete with clothes lines, notice boards and street signs. We’ve recently decided to treat all of our sets like stadium pop inferno performances. Unfortunately most of the venues aren’t delivering on our runway staging requests. Anyway, if you find yourself at an Approachable gig, you better make sure to equip your -19 decibels ear plugs – we make music for your ears, but we’d hate to be the cause of any long-term hearing damage.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

Shock horror, because the best advice we’ve been given is from our parents - to push the project as far as we can and have the best time in the process, but to keep straddling our day jobs and studies. It turns out it’s super challenging to make much money from music and living off it would be truly quite a challenge.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

An Australian track with a near 100% success rate of cheering someone up is Ben Lee’s ‘We’re all in this together.’ While it might still be up to debate whether or not Ben Lee is a living genius who wrote the best pop hits of Australia in 2005, at least we can all agree that he’s voice of our generation.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

'The Summer' by Josh Pyke. And then apologise.

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

'Shooting Stars' by the Bag Raiders. We played this at our Splendour DJ set and it WENT OFF.

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

Jack River at The Forum. An amazing show and perfectly put together. We absolutely love her album. We think that she’s really nailed an awesome pop sound. But her live show took it to a whole other level. And that was all before rock legend Alex Lahey snuck on stage and rocked out a sax solo. Obviously, we wept.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.

We are inspired by all of the friends around us, amazingly talented musicians and producers willing to share their knowledge with us. We currently share a studio with Japanese Wallpaper (Gab Strum) who produced our latest release ‘On + On,’ and a friend by the wild name of Hamish Patrick. Both of them are simply phenomenally talented - these guys inspire us. They’ve really helped us develop our songwriting and producing, and help us find a creative process which works best for us. We recognise that we’re really fortunate in Melbourne to be a part of such a supportive community of musicians, producers, writers and visual artists that are always keen to give a helping hand.

What are your plans for 2019?

This is going to be a big year for Approachable Members. We just signed a deal with New York label AntiFragile which is outrageously exciting. We are currently working on a new EP titled ‘Love Thy Neighbour’, which we’re hoping to release some more singles from very soon. We’ve got some very exciting collaborations with Australian artists on forthcoming singles, we can’t wait for you to hear. If you follow our socials, you might already have some clues. Speaking of sounds, Bigsound is coming up, and we’ll be heading to Brisbane! And maybe some other secrets too.

Cry Club

( )

Melbourne, VIC

Cry Club are this week's triple j Unearthed Feature Artist. Get to know them below!

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

Heather: With Jono’s background in really cool, technical, noisy guitar music and me, having more of a theatre background with a passion for pop music, the sound developed surprisingly organically! I gravitate towards big pop melodies which is a fun challenge when Jono brings in these really dissonant tracks. Developing the sound has always been about balancing pop with noise. Every track has different ratios of each side, but both elements will always be there in some form.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

Jono: I think there’s a lot of creative tension in combining pop and post punk elements that is really interesting to work from - so taking influences from super pop artists like Lady Gaga and The 1975 and pitting that against the noisy bands like Future of the Left and Daughters provides a great spark from which a lot of our stuff comes from.

What can punters expect from a Cry Club live show?

Heather: MEL. O. DRA. MA. Honestly the live show is the reason we make music at all. It’s theatrical, over the top and bursting at the seams with energy and emotion. Performing is so cathartic, and our songs are all so personal, it’s impossible to not give it everything I’ve got!!!!! Don’t think you’re safe hiding at the back either. I love a good wander through the audience mid-song.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

Jono: A big one that has guided our method, that unfortunately wasn’t given to us directly was Black Flag’s strategy of having the show be the focus and letting everything else around it be a flyer. So if something outside of the live show doesn’t land the way you want it to, all your eggs aren’t in that basket. They’re with the live show, so you don’t get stuck in things like comparing yourself to the success/progress of other artists.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

Heather: 'Sun' by Moaning Lisa. Honestly, sometimes you feel fragile and need a boost, and this song gives you all the goodness of Vitamin D right through your headphones.

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

Jono: 'The Pull' by Eilish Gilligan.

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

Heather: 'stabs' by RAAVE TAPES. It’s soooo infectious and dancey. Honestly, I have this on REPEAT right now.

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

Jono: It was a Monday Night Mass at the Northcote Social Club, with Lost Talk and Wax Chattels. Both incredibly good/aggressively cool bands. Love a free gig that always has interesting bands.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Wollongong (if you would like to talk about Melbourne, you can do so too) music community that inspire you.

Heather: Bec Sandridge! I loved her music before Cry Club was a thing, I’ve loved the way she carefully considers every aspect of her identity as an artist. Her aesthetics, stage outfits, and her songs absolutely bang so hard. It’s been amazing to have another openly lesbian artist to look up to as well. On the flip side, Totally Unicorn are the noisy inspo. They were the party guys for a long time, but it’s been wild to see the way it’s evolved into something darker. They’re also outrageoussssss to see live!!!

What are your plans for 2019?

Jono: Release more music, play more shows, get to 2020 and do it again.

MEG MAC

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne singer Meg Mac is one of the winners of our Falls Festival competition and will be playing the festival in Lorne this NYE. She has a huge voice, huge tracks and a huge future ahead of her.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music - how did you develop your sound?

I have been singing for a long time and like most people, I learned to sing by copying and trying to sound like other singers. I didn't work out my own thing really until I started writing, with no reference for my unsung songs I was forced to create a sound. But you can definitely hear all my influences I think and I love that they're always changing and so is my voice and writing. Growing up I listened to lots of soul thanks to my Dad, my Mum sings Irish folk songs and I was obsessed with pop of course. I like big voices and a bit of that drama - the ones that sing because they have to or they would die sort of thing, like Edith Piaf.

You’re the Victorian winner of our Falls Festival competition and will be playing the festival in Lorne at the end of the year. What can Falls punters expect from the Meg Mac live show?

I will be playing on New Years Eve and I am going to sing my little heart out. I play with two boys, a drummer and keys player and my little sister sings backing for me, it's pretty cute and she sounds just like me. Expect some electronic elements, big piano sounds, hand claps and lots of singing by me. We have new songs which we are going to play and help everyone get ready for the big day of music ahead and hopefully Meg Mac can help people feel ready to take on the new year.

What are you most looking forward to about the festival?

This is my favourite thing to happen to me all year and I still read the lineup every day just to give me that special feeling. Apart from actually playing, which is what I am definitely most looking forward to, it is all of the other bands and artists that are playing. Getting to watch all of their sets and then just the whole festival vibe, the camping, the photos, the people, the bands, the NYE thing - it is just guaranteed good times. And Solange.

What’s your earliest memory of performing music? How old were you?

I first started proper singing (singing lessons etc) when I was nine and once I discovered that I had a big voice, I could not get enough of Vanessa Amorosi…please don't judge me. 'Absolutely Everybody' was my favourite.

What else is coming up for you in 2013 and then looking into 2014?

I've got a few gigs coming up before the big Falls, that's what I call it now. On the 29th November I am supporting Georgia Fair at Howler in Melbourne. My 2014 is shaping up to be a pretty good year so far, it looks like my first album will be on its way! And I am looking forward to more stuff happening to me, and some more songs to happen to me too.

Australian music is…?

A lot of the time I will listen to music and not know/care where it comes from, but it is pretty awesome when I know something is Australian and suddenly I feel a little bit proud? It is weird, like I am suddenly connected to the music because the artist is Aussie just like me and my dreams become a little more achievable.

Alex Lahey

Melbourne, VIC

Melbourne's Alex Lahey is your triple j Unearthed Feature Artist this week. Already named as one of triple j Unearthed's artists to watch in 2016, her incoming debut EP (recorded with Oscar from Holy Holy) has us all sorts of excited.

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

I've been playing music my entire life and really started taking it seriously when I picked up the saxophone at 12 years old. I played in big bands all through high school and went to uni to study a jazz degree. I was always writing songs through high school as a means of teaching myself how to play guitar, and found when I got to uni that my ear was more attuned to appreciating a great song rather than a gnarly bebop lick - I was listening to way more Carole King than Charlie Parker. So, I dropped out of my degree and to focus more on writing songs. Oscar Dawson who plays in Holy Holy has helped me bring my songs to life with his incredible production skills. Funnily enough, he also didn't finish the exact same degree as me. And here we are.

What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

My lyrics tend to come from interactions I have with other people. I'm big on communication - I like to talk things out - so a lot of the words in my songs happen to be directly taken from conversations I've had. Musically, I get inspired by melody and groove. There's nothing better than hearing a song where there's a sweet chord change or melodic idea that makes you go "what the hell was that? I need to know!"

What can punters expect from your live show?

Coopers Sparkling, Bruce Springsteen-style count ins, fuzz pedals and a drummer who cries whenever he watches 'School of Rock'.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?

My friend's dad tells me "fortune favours the prepared mind", which I'm pretty sure is a Louis Pasteur quote. Basically, I interpret that to mean even if you're feeling you're not producing the best output at a particular time, you're preparing yourself and your skills to create something you're really proud of down the track. Another friend of mine has a similar piece of advice, which is to "sift through the shit", but I don't really like the visual that suggests... Let's stick with the Pasteur one.

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

'Our Place' by Verge Collection

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

'Can We Work It Out' by Gordi

You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

'She's So Fine' by The Easybeats

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

I don't know if this counts, but I went to see Alvvays while I was in Sydney the other weekend and they were incredible. I referred to their music a lot while recording my EP. I know Alvvays aren't a local band, but Major Leagues opened and they were just as good. Great songs, great chops, great night.

Tell us about the bands or people in the Melbourne music community that inspire you.

I'm really lucky to be part of a community that inspires me so much. My friends Eilish Gilligan and Greer Clemens both play in a brilliant band called Frida and have their own solo projects. I froth on the feedback I get from them when I show them new songs or mixes. Kate Duncan is the creative producer of The Push Inc and works to give young people opportunities to learn about playing/putting on gigs, being in the studio and releasing music - she's an amazing person who has been looking out for me since I was a bub. My best friend Ollie Whitehead plays sax in Animaux with me and has a sweet new project on the go, which will be excellent. Every time I go into the studio with Oscar, I come out a better musician and writer. Also, shout out to my manager, Leigh. Hey Leigh!

What are your plans for 2016?

Write more songs, play more guitar, play more shows, release my debut EP, tour lots, do more recording, drink all the beers. Not necessarily in that order.

Eilish Gilligan

( )

Melbourne, VIC

 Meet this week's Feature Artist, EILISH GILLIGAN. She's just dropped perhaps the best pop track of 2018 so far!

Read Interview

Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?

I feel like my sound is still evolving and that maybe it’ll never stop evolving…and maybe I don’t want it to, either. It’s important to me to seek out something innovative, while still embracing the conventions of modern pop music, because pop music is my one true love!! I think I make Pop music, but Pop music that’s been like... plucked off the rings of Saturn, or dredged up from the bottom of the ocean. There’s something alien and spooky about it that I can’t stop chasing. 

What's your greatest source of inspiration for making music?

Deeply human feelings and behaviour is the thing that truly inspires me to create, I think. I also love when those perfect poetic moments occur in real life - those things you could never dream of writing, but somehow the universe gifts them to you and it’s impossible not to frame them in a song. Like last year I was in America and I’d just said goodbye to someone I loved very much, and sitting in the back of an Uber, crying as though I was in a music video, Kissing Families by Silversun Pickups came on and it was just…perfect. It was so human and so miserable and I couldn’t believe my luck (lol).

What can punters expect from an EILISH GILLIGAN live show?

I think I put on a good show. It’s important to me to produce a true *performance* in every sense of the word. I love the drama involved in being onstage. I think if I’d had any tangible talent in the area I’d probably have gravitated towards acting. If I hadn’t been a musician. I’m really inspired by tearjerker films and also by the drag community. I think Lady Gaga said once “those women taught me how to serve,” which is the truest goddamn thing on this planet. 

What's the best advice you've been given and who was it from?

There have been two instances where some extraordinarily pertinent advice has been given to me at exactly the right time. The first was from my wonderfully honest friend who, after patiently witnessing me bawl my eyes out on her hotel bed in Austin because I didn’t have the slightest idea where my sorry life was headed, said “You gotta do your own thing.” And I did. And she was right. The second bit of advice was from my Dad, who recently looked me straight in the eye and said “You must stop worrying. It’s going to kill you if you don’t,” and that scared me so much I must say I have really cut down on the worrying…

What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?

'Say Yes To Life' by Gang of Youths. This has worked for me approximately one trillion times. Also 'Better' by Mallrat. 

What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?

OK, this is definitely my forte. I think right now it’s a tie between 'Turning To White' by New Gods and 'Idiot Oracle' by Paul Dempsey. Both lyrically unbelievable and so so so miserable. Both superb!!

You're the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?

'Get Me A Drink' by Alice Ivy, E^ST, Charlie Threads. Have you ever heard anything as unhingedly glorious as this song?!

What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?

The last one I can really remember was the Ceres Christmas show in December. It was my first time seeing Ceres live and it changed everything. I couldn’t believe the songs I had held so close to me so privately for so long meant so much to so many people in the same room!!

Tell us about the bands or people in the music community that inspire you.

I’m really inspired by kindness, honesty and work ethic in this industry. I really look up to people like HTMLflowers, Gordi and Mallrat. They all exude a wonderful sense of pride in their work and a generous, positive attitude towards friends and colleagues and I just think they’re great. 

What are your plans for 2018?

Write heaps, hopefully play many shows, and embrace whatever it means to be completely vulnerably human as much and as often as possible.
