We got a couple of gigs coming up! This Saturday at @rtrfm ‘s Fremantle Winter Music Festival. And then over to @theaardvarkbar July 5th for their 1st birthday weekender. They’re huge events and we’re excited to be a part of them and see what’s in store. 
Here’s a video of @hal_foster’s from the filming of Fat Cheque. 🎶👽🎶 this little dittys called TROUBLE. 🤡♥️❓
  • Local producer PTMC has been a busy man over the past few years, producing under his former alias Kole Beer, studying at WAAPA and getting involved in Perth’s underground electronic scene. His EP Lost In The Digital Sauce was RTRFM’s Local Feature Album earlier this year, which presented a range of dance music styles with polished production techniques in a truly impressive debut.

  • Perth indie-pop group @vrgcollectshn have been making waves around the country, having national tours and an album under their belt and a second on its way. Their jangly sound have crowds lining up to get a taste of their fun and catchy pop-rock riffs.

  • @RTRFM'S local feature this week comes from @Frank'sFishTank_ with their independent debut album, Muddy Landing. .
.
.
Hailing from the windy west coast, somewhere between port city Fremantle and deep south Albany, #franksfishtank formed over a mutual love of bluegrass and old time inspired melodies.
.
.
.
Led by Francesca Hosking’s hauntingly nostalgic vocals and clawhammer style banjo playing, backed by her sister Rachel (Racoo) on fiddle and Jason Snook (Galloping Foxleys, The Justin Walshe Folk Machine) on mandolin and guitar, the usually 3-piece have combined a mixture of classic old time bluegrass standards and original folk tunes on their debut album Muddy Landing.
.
.
. 
Francesca sings of tall trees, wide river banks, good times in the port town and more in irresistible fashion, showing that a #MuddingLanding can be the best variety of landing.
  • @RTRFM'S Feature album for the week comes from @Jambinai 잠비나이​ and their latest album, ONDA.
.
.
.
After a decade in the game, South Korea’s Jambinai have expanded on their interesting, intense fusion of post-rock, metal, traditional Korean and noise genres on their third full-length, ONDA. .
.
.
Continuing to showcase their mastery of traditional Korean instrumentation, ONDA (the Korean word for “come”) sees the band at their devastatingly zealous best, in no small part due to the addition of 2 new permanent members on drums and bass, leading to a more dynamic rhythm section than their previous efforts. .
.
.
Oscillating between serene ambience and merciless convulsion, ONDA is a statement in the band’s discography, showcasing their range in new, exciting ways.
.

#ONDA by #Jambinai is via Bella Unión​/ Inertia Music​
  • Next Saturday... #fmwf2019. 35 bands, 6 venue, great vibes.

  • Pop duo @we_are_priscilla an electric fusion of feel-good riffs, party drums and limitless vocals. Their new single released earlier this year delivers heavily-layered production, merging both synthetic and organic instrumentation with Priscilla’s powerful driving vocals.

  • Late last year saw Oosterbanger expand from being the solo moniker of Ellen Oosterbaang to its current form as a full 4-piece band. Noisy, melodic, lyrically mature and emotionally pulling, Oosterbanger dances between dreamy soundscapes and heavier grunge, doom stylings. 
Catch Oosterbanger at RTRFM presents Fremantle Winter Music Festival 2019 when they play at the Port Beach Garden Bar.
