Big ‡ Brave (CA – Southern Lord)
“Montreal, Quebec, Canada, three-piece BIG|BRAVE plays sincere, long-form out-rock that ventures in to different directions — at times mournful and unsettling — their music plays out in to moon-bleached grunge where serene vocals crumble over scraping guitars bled of melody. Sometimes it’s the sound you don’t make. Big|Brave chooses their silences carefully, oscillating between sparse, gentle arrangements and deep swells of noise. They are patient, their crescendos tidal and graceful. Heavy drums come up against haunting vocal melodies. Moody guitar tones swirl. Slowly they recede into something more atmospheric, a quiet that hangs thick like smoke. Something important is offered in the spaces between sounds. Listen for it, feel. It waits.”
MY DISCO (AU – TEMPORARY RESIDENCE LTD)
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, post-punk trio My Disco were formed in 2003 by brothers Liam and Ben Andrews and Rohan Rebeiro. Named for a Big Black song, the band specialized in angular, cerebral indie rock.
