A U.N. employee (Brad Pitt) is racing against time and fate, as he travels the world trying to stop the outbreak of a deadly Zombie pandemic. Via Pitt’s own ‘Plan B’ studio, World War Z is out in Australian theatres now. You’re going to hear “Villa Del Refugio” by THIS WILL DESTROY YOU playing throughout the film.
Zombies, Brad Pitt… ZOMBIES! Watch the trailer below…
OWEN aka Mr Mike Kinsella stopped by the Nervous Energies sessions. With his full family as the audience, Mike performed ‘Who Cares?’ from his incredible new album L’Ami du Peuple – out July 2nd on Hobbledehoy.
Limited AUS/NZ coloured vinyl pressing! The songs Mike Kinsella writes as OWEN have always had rock solid lyrical foundations. And on L’Ami du Peuple, the same can be said for the music. Emphasis on the rock. Anyone vaguely familiar with Kinsella’s musical lineage (CAP’N JAZZ, AMERICAN FOOTBALL, OWLS) knows he’s far from a one-note musician. And now, he expands his repertoire as a solo songwriter to include a touch of female vocals, pounding drums, and even dueling electric guitar lines that are the closest thing he’s done in tribute to his 80s hair metal obsession.
OWEN (AKA Mike Kinsella) has a fantastic brand new album coming out in July called L’Ami du Peuple and the first single, “Bad Blood,” made its debut on SPIN today!
We’ve also got the song streaming here below. More new music from this great artist is always a treat, and Mike has made one the most exciting records of his career. The new album is due for release in AUS/NZ on Hobbledehoy in July 2013.
FOURTEEN NIGHTS AT SEA is a ship with no captain. Borne of the tides, some untold force propels them, ever gaining momentum. Melbourne’s premier instrumental post-rock horde have become a fearsome, thoughtful force to be drank in, wholly and willingly.
The anchor has been pulled on forthcoming sophomore album Great North, and the results are mesmerizing. Great North is a sweeping, chilling behemoth of an album. Furnished with sounds captured aboard the trusty ship of acclaimed engineer Neil Thomason (MY DISCO, AUGIE MARCH), this record is a stirring journey through a landscape of ice and darkness. The sound is reflected perfectly in the unforgiving winter sconces that creep through the album’s stunning artwork.
Having returned from a journey with US post-rock darlings THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, FNAS will bring Great North into port with a launch at their spiritual home, Melbourne’s The Old Bar on Saturday April 27th with NINETYNINE and THE BULLS.
