SASKWATCH have launched new a clip for their new single ‘I’ll Be Fine’.
The video was animated by Jason Galea and is the first single from their forthcoming album “Sorry I Let It Come Between Us” out June 12th via our own label!!!
The album itself was recorded over a month long period at Mt Slippery – an old silversmith warehouse come recording studio on the outskirts of Philadelphia, America. It’s the studio of Dr Dog’s Scott McMicken and Nathan Sabatino, who together produced the album. Saskwatch have long been big fans of Dr Dog, both musically and in their work as producers, and relished at the chance to head overseas and work alongside them. The result: a raw, solemn and sparse collection of genre-jumping songs.
Watch ‘I’ll Be Fine’ below!
Next week two MONSTERS of soul music unleash new LPs at The Corner Hotel.
The funky SASKWATCH have just released “Nose Dive” and then you have COOKIN’ ON 3 BURNERS who releasing “Blind Bet”. Both albums will reach their funky tentacles out to the world. Go to both, or at least go to one. But do not go to nada or you will answer to me…..
The Cookin Show has a massive line up, from BBoys to DJ’s and many surprise vocalists. Get Down to get down.
Last Saturday two of Australia’s biggest and best soul bands socked it to Melbourne. SASKWATCH played to a packed out sweaty Corner Hotel and the mighty BAMBOOS stepped up their game and rocked The Forum.
Doing it bigtime!
The other news that emerged that day was the announcement that local Melbourne Soul band – HIATUS KAIYOTE have been nominated for a GRAMMY Yes, I think this is the first time an Australian soul act has been acknowledged by the Grammys.
CONGRATULATIONS to Hiatus Kaiyote on behalf of NORTHSIDE RECORDS and all soul fans in Australia. Now, I don’t want to say who won, but the Grammy awards are given out on January 26th, thats right – AUSTRALIA DAY.
Deep Street Soul hit the Workers Club this Saturday for their final show in Melbourne before taking off to tour the UK & Europe, which includes an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival. Deep Street will also be flying the flag for Funky Melbourne at Floripa London, ‘Band on the Wall’ (Craig Charles’ Night) in Manchester, The Yardbird Jazz Club in Birmingham, as well as shows in Bordeaux, Toulouse and culminating July 6th at St Paul Soul Jazz Festival. Wow!
Deep Street Soul aren’t the only Melbourne band heading off to Glastonbury either! Saskwatch and The Bombay Royale are also on their way.
You can support the bands and Melbourne Soul by checking out Satuday’s gig at the Workers (also featuring Up Up Away, Karate Boogaloo and Peirre Baroni) – PLUS – hit the bands POZIBLE pages and kick in a few bucks to help the bands reach their totals.
Congratulations to Saskwatch who have already hit their target and will NOT be pawning their equipment in order to fly back to Melbourne. Props for a great show at the John Curtain Hotel on the weekend just passed. Glastonbury LOOKOUT!
And props to Chris Gill and Lance Ferguson who featured these 3 bands on “THE SOUL OF MELBOURNE” compilation. Their upcoming appearances at Glastonbury are testament to the thriving Melbourne scene. If you don’t own this comp – you need it.
Looks like Saskwatch are making them dance up in Byron! Melbourne funk champions spread the message like butter! Make sure you get a taste! Check the review here!
get ready for I GET LONELY, brand new single from Soul Monsters SASKWATCH see the official film clip here.
The actual 7″ is about 4 weeks away, so HOLD TIGHT!
‘I Get Lonely’ is faster and harder than Saskwatch has ever been before. Its clangy guitars and fast-paced drums evoke 60s surf-rock vibes, while the horn section bring the melody, all held together by Nkechi Anele’s gutsy vocals. It’s ambitious and it hits the mark.
The work for Mikey didn’t stop – he and Max Kohane, collectively known as Brain Children liberally applied their talents to Saskwatch’s single, ‘Your Love’ and the result – an ambient remix full of echoing guitars and almost prog-rock drums.
