– Auckland trio Popstrangers bring their Forthcoming debut LP to Australia with a trio of gigs in March. Antipodes is out March 1 through Spunk and has already set the bar pretty high with the singles ‘Heaven’ and ‘What Else Could They Do?’. The band also made a swell Kiwi-themed mixtape for RCD LBL recently. Spunk bandmates Bored Nothing and Bearhug will support for most of the below gigs.

– The self-titled debut EP from Melbourne trio The In The Out pairs frontman Dallas Gale (Deserters, Dead River Deeps) with bassist Paul Maybury (Rocket Science) and drummer Angus Boyle (ex-The Dacios). Bassist Christopher Grat and drummer Sam Fiddian have since taken their place, but the four-song EP remains the band’s calling card for now. They’re taking it on the road for four consecutive tour dates, with support from Melbourne’s Nervous (featuring members of Pop Singles) and Sydney’s Box of Fuck and the EP-launching The Dead Heads.

– Fresh off the single ‘Double Act’ – and its very DIY film clip – Sydney’s Day Ravies are cruising up and down the East Coast. The jaunt includes a stop at Gangbusters, the all-star indie bash put on by Melbourne label Birds Love Fighting. The next thing we hear from Day Ravies might well be their first album, due this year on Popfrenzy.

– Also playing that Gangbusters night are the ever-lovable The Ocean Party, who tonight kick off a month-long residency at The Tote. Like their residency there last year, this one handily crystallises the whole Melbourne jangle thing. It also sees our boys promoted from the front bar to the proper bandroom. All residency dates are $8, starting at 8:30pm.
