In The Pines 2015: The Slow Reveal!

Thursday 12th March / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

This morning on Breakfast with Caitlin we announced the first seven acts performing at UWA's Somerville Auditorium on Sunday, 19 April for RTRFM's 22nd annual In The Pines festival.

On the bill: Perth’s hard-edged pop and guitar shredding queen, Abbe May; garage punk young’uns, Aborted Tortoise; the mystical, instrumental shoegaze of Fait; ambient experimental pop trio, Methyl Ethel; alt-country/folk supergroup, The Wilds; the beautiful melodies and native Noongar tongue of Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse; and a very special reformation set from late ‘80/early ‘90s indie jangle-pop outfit, The Rainyard.

Plus 13 more acts still to be announced!

Caitlin Nienaber had a chat with RTRFM Music Director, Adam Christou, and special guest Abbe May.

But wait -- there's still more...

Expect a frenetic, discordant cacophony of guitars from kooky garage rockers, Hideous Sun Demon; the deep baritone and Americana-tinged sounds of Husband; cinematic, dreamy melodies from indie rock five-piece, Lanark; the brooding, gravelly intensity and controlled musical chaos of Maurice Flavel’s Intensive Care; the always spellbinding and ever-evolving composer and vocal powerhouse that is Rachael Dease; the dirty in-your-face sounds of DIY street punks, Shit Narnia; and an ear-shattering set from melodic hardcore brutalists, Statues.

Caitlin Nienaber was joined by RTRFM Music Director, Adam Christou, and special guest, Rachael Dease, for the second round line-up reveal.

And the third round of acts...

Get ready to experience retro garage rock quartet Thee Gold Blooms; the delicate acoustic folk-pop of Eduardo Cossio Quartet; the hypnotic, layered sounds and soaring vocals of Felicity Groom; the warm, fuzzed-out psych-rock of SpaceManAnticsGrim Fandango’s ballsy brand of punk rock; and an extremely rare performance from recently reformed ‘90s indie rock darlings, The Rosemary Beads.

Caitlin Nienaber was joined by RTRFM Music Director, Adam Christou, and local band SpaceManAntics for the final line-up reveal.
