GB3

GB is Glenn Bennie, a driving force behind the Underground Lovers, one of Australia's most innovative bands of the '90s. GB3 refers to the collaborative nature of the album - in the studio at any one time were Glenn, his studio off-sider Tim Prince, and a guest vocalist or musician. The collaborators are a mix of Glenn's musical heroes (including Steve Kilbey and the late-great Grant McLennan) and the hottest new stars in Australian independent music (including Sarah Blasko and Sianna from Love Outside Andromeda).

The Ruby Suns

'Fight Softly' is the third album by New Zealand's pop masters The Ruby Suns. Ryan McPhun (their prime mover) has the kind of voracious musical mind that cites as equal influences '80s/'90s New Jack Swing and modern Angolan kuduro, Fleetwood Mac and Britney Spears, Brazilian tropicalia and Argentinean cumbia. He's the kind of diligent, meticulous soul that spends days hunched over a laptop in a tiny rented studio in Auckland, NZ just to perfect a sequenced drum track (mission accomplished).

The Lovetones

The Lovetones is led by Matthew J. Tow (acoustic & electric guitars / sitar / autoharp / vocals), formerly of Drop City, Colorsound and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, along with Matt Sigley (bass / keyboards / vocals) and Chris Cobb (drums / percussion). The Lovetones released their debut album, Be What You Want in 2002 through Bomp! Records, creating a palpable buzz amongst critics from the likes of Creem and Rolling Stone magazine. The latter hailed mainman Matthew J Tow's songwriting worthy of Ray Davies, Bowie, Lennon and McCartney: a bold statement, yet in his case, completely justified.

In the following few years, the band - vocalist/guitarist Geoffrey O'Connor, bassist Brett Hudson, guitarist Chris Hung and drummer Neil Erenstrom -supported the likes of the Unicorns, New Pornographers, Stereolab, Cornelius, Dirty Three, Electrelane, Deerhoof and Architecture in Helsinki in concert.
