MOODY BEACHES

Fri 5th Oct 8:30pm

with PORPOISE SPIT

Melbourne post-punk grunge trio, Moody Beaches are hitting the road in support of their anticipated debut LP, Weird Friends - which was released early August via Poison City Records. Capturing the loud and urgent delivery that the band is known for, their recent singles Guns, Weird Friends and Modes have been widely embraced by Rage TV, Double J, national community radio and audiences alike. Raw, brooding and at times - scathing, Moody Beaches channels the loud-quiet-loud dynamic of early Pixies and the harmony-driven vocal hooks of The Breeders. Featuring members of La Bastard and Hot Wings, Moody Beaches have forged a strong reputation as a vital addition to Melbourne’s underground DIY scene in their short 12 months as an entity. Moody Beaches are taking their broody live headline show across the east coast, with support from an inclusive roster of artists to watch out for.

TAYLOR SHERIDAN

Grand Final Eve Fri 28th Sept 8:30pm

Singer-songwriter Taylor Sheridan from rural Victoria is someone that has always had music run through his veins. His career started by entering talent competitions all over the country trying to mimic his idols such from Stevie Wonder. His early teen years saw the singer change it up and start playing guitar which would lead to a new unique sound and a love of songwriting. After leaving high school he knew that music would be a big part of his life but unsure of which avenue he would take or where it would lead. Over the last 5 years, he has written and recorded two EPs, played sold out shows and has toured the county. Taylor is currently working on new material but you can be sure that he will be playing his unique acoustic/soulful sound somewhere near you.

DAN BRODIE

Sat 8th Sept 8:30pm special guest RUBY SOHO (Bitch Diesel)

Dan Brodie is a revered Australian singer-songwriter. 

Since 1999, Brodie has captured audiences around the world, releasing a succession of albums (seven in total) which have been nominated for numerous awards. 

Brodie's talents are recognised in his native Australia with two ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Awards for his second album, Empty Arms, Broken Hearts as well as an unfaltering reputation as an incredible live performer with acclaimed appearances at festivals such as the Big Day Out, Byron Bay Bluesfest, Splendour in the Grass and the Binic Folks Blues festival in France, signing to French label Beast Records in 2012 and completing numerous tours of Europe both as a solo artist and with assorted backing musicians.

Along with his various outfits, The Broken Arrows and The Grieving Widows, Brodie's musical talents have taken him to the U.S., U.K., Brazil, France, Spain and Denmark, playing such iconic venues as CBGB in New York, The Continental in Austin, The Exit/In in Nashville and The Olympia in Paris.

His latest solo covers Album, "Lost Not Found" represents a high water mark, capturing Brodie at his most vulnerable - from the visceral Bob Dylan opener, "Standing in the doorway" to a meditative take on Iggy Pop's "The Passenger", through to Merle Haggard's "Tonight the bottle let me down" and Paul Simon's "You can call me Al"; and was recently performed to sell out audiences across Europe. This tour also included a stopover at France's famed  Conservatoire Municipal Gabriel Faure in Paris to shoot an intimate black and white clip for Dan's original track, "Words of a Drunken Man".


Joining Dan at Major Tom's will be longtime collaborator and world renowned guitar slinging brother-in-crime, Chris Brodie.

Sat 1st Sep 8:30pm

To coincide with the release of his sophomore album ‘Easy Dazy’ out July 13 on Caroline Australia, Fraser A. Gorman has announced a national Australian tour kicking off in Adelaide on August 18 and finishing in Brisbane on September 28.

‘Easy Dazy' - the follow up to Fraser’s debut album ‘Slow Gum’ - was recorded at Head Gap with producer Nicolas Vernhes (War on Drugs, Silver Jews, Cat Power) and Melbourne musician Dan Luscombe (The Drones). The record also features guest musician friends including members of King Gizzard, Leah Senior, Anika Ostendorf (Hachiku) and Hollie Joyce. 

Gorman's songwriting builds around his ability to convey his life, hopes, and fears openly with sun-drenched tones and lyrical wit. Sonically, the album has a warm and timeless feel. Taking a slight step away from the country folk vibes of his previous releases, 'Easy Dazy’ is more laid-back Americana with a driving pop sensibility. Tasteful horn arrangements sprinkled on a few tracks evoke the vibe of contemporary blue-eyed soul and the lush background vocals evoke the sound somewhere between Transformer era Lou Reed and Bill Fay's 'Omega Day'.

‘Easy Dazy’ will be out July 13, 2018 and is available HERE on Caroline Australia

Sean McMahon is a dedicated, deft singer, songwriter and performer.   

His poetic and melodic style of song writing is loaded with confessional narratives, vivid story telling and lyrical beauty.  

Over the past decade, and a handful of albums, he has honed a style and voice all his own, and traversed a musical landscape from densely textured alt-country through to an eclectic blend of folk, blues, alt-country and rock and roll.  

Sean McMahon and Blind Date Records are pleased to announce the release of the next single from the forthcoming album - 'Spring'  and an accompanying 18 date solo tour from Melbourne to Brisbane.

Sean will play Major Tom's on Saturday August 11

"..a master of his craft." - Sydney Morning Herald

"..some of the tastiest guitar playing and songwriting around" - Rhythms 

" McMahon walks that fine line between edginess and vulnerability" - Happy 

"There is something reminiscent of Eels' Mark Oliver Everret to McMahon's vocal, and indeed were you to cross Eels with The Band you might have something resembling (album) Shiner." - Beat
