Thanks, you talented bastards

by admin on Jul.27, 2010, under General

Good things seem to happen all at once. Like Ghostdrums’ excellent self-titled EP continuing to find new fans all over the country – with FBi radio in Sydney adding the excellent track ‘Red Thread’ to rotation on the station.

Or like the great news involving Adem K and Ghostdrums, two LIMV artists with recently released albums, who have both been invited to play the RTRfm Radiothon Closing Party on August 28 at the Rosemount Hotel (we highly recommend heading on down to support the good station RTR as well as checking out some awesome bands).

Or like the 6s & 7s getting a 5 star review in the Australian Music Magazine, where the writer concluded their review with ‘When you reach the end of this sonic journey into bliss-pop and doom, you wanna shake this guy’s hand and say “Thanks, you talented bastard!”.

Australia Chooses (The Sentinel Blooze)

by admin on Jul.19, 2010, under Events

The 6s & 7s new album ‘Choose The Sentinel Blooze’ continues to conquer the country! You may have heard the first single ‘Smilin’ on Triple J, where it has been added to rotation, or on FBi, RRRfm or a myriad of other stations where they are also playing tracks off the album on a regular basis.

Street press on the East Coast have also praised the album, saying “It’s a pretty awesomely warped and schizophrenic (not in an obscene ‘crazy, man’ way; in the sense that disparate and often troubled voices interject the songs at times, the tunes changing tack and shifting melodies in condensed, paranoid movements) pop album. There is, as has been suggested, probably some Xiu Xiu in there, as well as The Magnetic Fields, but who cares about references when the result is a strong, uncompromising new Australian voice.” – Adam Curley, The Breakdown (Drum Media, Inpress & Time Off)

And now, the 6s & 7s are happy to announce their impending album launch tour, where they are bringing the 6s & 7s stage show experience (TM) to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. Clear your schedules and mark the dates in your diaries people!

6s_and_7s

We’ve had some good days over the past few weeks, and they are mostly related to the amazing behemoth that is Choose the Sentinel Blooze. It’s a love-labour that captures the perfection of Josh Fontaine’s songwriting – why don’t you purchase your very own copy from our online store.

So good times ahoy! This is how the last few weeks have played out…

It was Katie’s birthday and Smilin’ was played on Home & Hosed!

Choose the Sentinel Blooze out now!

by admin on Jul.04, 2010, under Events, Releases

The 6s & 7s launched their debut album last night, which was a great gig! If you missed it, you missed out. They played the album, start to finish and there was an array of special guests. A galaxy of stars, to use Josh’s Telethon reference! The 6s & 7s had a choir, a whole brass band (trumpet, trombone and tuba), as well as tin whistle, singing saw and banjo and mouth organ on stage (sometimes at the same time).  Plus the supports were all uniformly awesome, as Craig, Split Seconds and The Painkillers are wont to be. What a night!

If you missed out on an album, then you can grab it online for $25 including postage at our web shop right NOW. Otherwise it should be available at all record stores. Demand it’s presence!

We have also put 6s & 7s t-shirts up on the shop too, which are worth checking out. Definitely worth your hard earned dollars.
