Video: Daughter Smother Live @ Metro Theatre, Sydney (24 July 2013)
Savages, Daughter, Chvrches, Kurt Vile, Jagwar Ma, Frightened Rabbit, King Krule, Cass McCombs, Drenge, Parquet Courts, Autre Ne Veut have all announced sideshows for the St Jerome’s Laneway Festival in Australia in 2014.
Two releases of 2013 that have captured my full attention are Silence Yourself by Savages and If You Leave by Daughter. Silence Yourself whips you across the ears and has you imagining that the punk ladies of Savages were brought up by Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedy’s) himself.
If You Leave is a quiet and intimate tale of love lost that provides you with comfort when you just need a hug and a cup of hot chocolate. To be given the opportunity to hear either album live is giving me hives at the thought. How does one get rid of hives?
To add to the ambience Daughter will be performing their two sideshows in churches in Melbourne and Sydney. Don’t blame me if you don’t have a vision at the show. That probably costs extra.
Plus, support for the Savages has been graciously accepted by my favourite Aussie avant-garde weirdo Kirin J Callinan. Kirin has that mad dog look in his eye aka Nick Cave circa Nick The Stripper (The Birthday Party). I like it, it scares people. Invite Kirin round to your Halloween Party and you know it’ll be a
great strange night.
