BUMPY “Return Home” new 7″ out on Northside Records and an INSTORE

Our next release is out on FRIDAY!!!!

Naarm/Melbourne-based soul artist and proud Noongar woman Bumpy presents her new single, ‘Return Home’, it illuminates the transportive nature of BUMPY, guiding the listener through a world in which vulnerability is strength and power is quiet but self-assured.

Described by Bumpy as an ode to home and “the people, places and connections that make us feel grounded and at ease”, ‘Return Home’ is propelled by stirring strings arranged by Aaron Wyatt, who recently marked history as the first Indigenous conductor of an Australian state orchestra.

The lead vocalist of Naarm/Melbourne neo-soul outfit SQUID NEBULA , Bumpy emerged as a solo artist in late 2020 with her debut single ‘Falling’. Falling is featured on the record as well!

So happy to have Bumpy join the incredible crew of local musicians on the Northside Records label to be our 28th release!!!

The single is released digitally next Wednesday, the vinyl will be out Friday!

 

The INSTORE will be super special with visuals provided by SIMBIOTIC VISUALS. Come along at 6pm…. b#…….band will be on at 6.05pm and we will be all finished by 7pm……

TomGirl + GODTET live instore!

On Saturday 11th of November Northside Records presents TomGirl and GODTET live instore. Both bands are launching their highly anticipated debut releases – on Northside Records and La Sape Records respectively.

TomGirl’s debut release in yet another soul-hybrid from Melbourne’s inner-North. The new single ‘My lovers’ is a little anthem for love that isn’t finite – it is formless and free. The flipside ‘Dunes’ is a mostly instrumental tune reminiscent of 60’s psych-lounge, 70’s surf soundtracks and urban noir, with a touch of the ‘doo-wops’…. totally unique and beyond classification. TomGirl is an all-female five piece comprising Anita Chorowicz, Danika Smith, Harmony Byrne, Laura Clinch and Shanti Lane. Live at Northside from 3pm.

GODTET is a new band put together by Sydney-based guitarist/producer Godriguez. Dave ‘Godriguez’ burst on the scene in 2015 as the producer for Sampa the Great’s ‘Great Mixtape’, making waves both here and all over the world. Whilst the players here are from a jazz background and the instrumentation is undoubtably jazz, the music pushes into other territories. The debut release is out now and available at Northside and all good record stores. Cop a listen here – and you’ll know why you need to be at Northside to seeGODTET performing live instore.

Scatter Scatter + Gentlemen of Leisure

comingup-scatterscatter

There’s no rest for the wicked! Coming up this weekend is the highly anticipated Scatter Scatter Party at the Prince of Wales / POW Bandroom (St. Kilda), featuring Live performances by The Shaolin Afronauts and Papa Chango, with support for Public Opinion Sound System, plus DJs Manchild and Jumps. This will be the official album launch party for Shaolin Afronauts new album – don’t miss it.

Following up Friday night’s SOUTHSIDE afro-experience, the funk will return to it’s natural habitat on the Northside on Saturday, with DJ Manchild and his Gentlemen of Leisure collective pumpin’ the funk in the Grace Darling Basement. With t-t-t-turntable assistance and the tightest and most righteous selections from DJ Jumps and super-digger DJ Arks, it promises to be a butt-shakin’ night of the deepest, hardest, rawest dancefloor funk and soul this city has to offer. Expect a healthy dose of Afrofunk and Ghetto Boogie in the mix – along with a few of those secret ‘rare as rocking-horse shit’ records the Gentlement of Leisure have been saving up for this auspicious occasion. And heads-up – it’s lights on at 1am – so get in early to get your groove on.

Want more? Scatter Scatter is back at the Prince of Wales again at the end of the month (Aug. 31), featuring the one and only Public Opinion Afro Orchestra, who are rumoured to have a big-arse bag of new material. Joining POAO on the night are 8-bit champions, Cumbia Cosmonauts, along with Manchild and Jumps. Sensible shoes is a must!
