With Jess Zanoni

There may be a bit of a lull in gigs and FReeZA events this week but no matter, there’s still plenty of news to share with you. Tone Deaf have a few sweet as competitions that you should enter. The first is a double pass to Soulfest!! The second is for any Tigercub fans out there, Tone Deaf are giving away the one and only copy in existence of their double a-side 7” Blue Blood and Centrefold, with hand-drawn art, numbered and signed by the band themselves. Jump on to to fill in your details and enter.

Only just over a week until Tame Impala’s third record Currents comes out, we hope you have pre-ordered this baby. You can listen to their song Nangs in a short clip called “Currents In the Making” on their Youtube account featuring shots of Kevin Parker in his beachside studio. Can you tell we’re keen as heck? Pop surf rockers Wavves and Cloud Nothings have joined forces for a new record that you can find on Bandcamp for $10 called No Life For Me. It’s really fun and we’ve been waiting  ages for it. Visit to listen and buy.

Tickets to Mumford and  Son’s recently announced November show with Future Islands and The Vaccines at Sidney Myer Music Bowl are released today! Hopefully you’ve snatched up some tickets for yourself! If not get on to to suss out if there’s any left!
