Australian post-rock...

...there had to be some out there. And there is.

Sleepmakeswaves http://www.sleepmakeswaves.com/ their tagline is 'we make love songs about delay pedals'

Clearly been around for a bit but I heard their latest single 'Something Like Avalanches' from a new album 'Love of Cartography' over the weekend on TripleJ. And it caught my ear...

It's all instrumental, lots of guitars, lots of programming, epic production on the scale of the big name exponents of the genre like Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky and God Speed...jazz for metal fans?

You can have a listen here http://sleepmakeswaves.bandcamp.com/music


  • What is bandcamp ?

  • There was this one time...

  • Heh heh

  • You guys....

    Bandcamp is a distribution portal for independent music, available worldwide. Basically, it's a modern iteration of the record store but it is stocked with music you generally won't hear on the radio. It has been around for some time and I've purchased quite a bit of stuff through it over the years. Easy place to get lost in...

  • Do they do vinyl ;)

  • Hell yeah...depends on the artist though. Sleepmakeswaves certainly does.

  • I have to admit, that I am a complete ludite when it comes to streaming, downloading etc.

    I just can't find the time for it ie I am a lazy phuck!

  • Graham, just plug the computer into the stereo. (Don't electrocute yourself tho)

  • Having a listen to their earlier album on QObuz

    PC & stereo @ different ends of house.

    Also, Windows on my PC hasn't worked for months & can't be phucked trying to fix.

    Linux works, but I can't figure out how to find any data on the hard drives, as this would also require me caring.. I am so over technology this year!
    :-q :-??

  • Hi Graham, but you have a laptop right?

  • Yes, yes we do.

    But I do think I am becoming a technophobe.

    I'm so over it. :-??

  • For a wider selection of tunes in the Oz prog rock, post rock and even prog folk then head to here for a listen http://birdsrobe.bandcamp.com/

    I thoroughly recommend this album http://birdsrobe.bandcamp.com/album/moving-pieces-of-the-sea
