BIGSOUND Live: Highlights of Night One - Part Two (09.09.15)

Pictured: DEAFCULT

It sounds a little cliché, but the first night of Bigsound really was a showcase of the variety of Australian musicians making waves at the moment. The spectrum of genres was amazing to see, and no doubt we’ll be hearing much more from these very talented artists.

the AU interview: Aidan Moore of Moses Gunn Collective (Brisbane) talks 'Mercy Mountain' & their upcoming tour!

The last time we saw Moses Gunn Collective, the dreamy Brisbane act were traversing the capital cities alongside their Sunshine State brothers and sister, The Jungle Giants. The band's emergence as first, a music act making ripples with their sparky psych-rock tones, to now being part of the crop of Australian young guns who've fashioned themselves into a name to remember, has been a rise to attention the band has been working hard at. The hard work (as of now) culminated in the debut Moses Gunn Collective album, Mercy Mountain, released a few weeks ago. A solid debut offering, Mercy Mountain has displayed the band's ambition and potential - two things set to be further realised as Moses Gunn Collective prepares to tour this bad boy down the east coast.

Live Review: The Jungle Giants + Moses Gunn Collective + Foreign/National - Adelaide Unibar (30.05.15)

The Jungle Giants made their return to Adelaide after some time away to an enthusiastic, sold out Unibar crowd. The line up is a triple j loving, indie pop fan dream and is a good indicator of some of the great talent currently emerging out of the country's east coast at the moment. In both Foreign/National and Moses Gunn Collective we have two incredibly promising live bands, so I've got to thank The Jungle Giants and their tour organisers for giving both the platform to reach more people around the country on this run.

Music Video of the Day: Moses Gunn Collective “Back Into The Womb” (2015)

Australian crowds have gotten to know five-piece Moses Gunn Collective that little bit better with recent shows alongside The Jungle Giants, the excitement for their debut album to drop building with each date. They've released a clip for their dreamy number "Back Into The Womb" - it’s got exactly as much fuzz guitar and psychedelic production as you’d expect from these guys. Check out the glittery goodness below!

Live Review: Eucalyptus Echoes Psych Fest BNE - Beetle Bar (21.09.13)

My afternoon at the Eucalyptus Echoes Psych Fest kicks off with the Moses Gunn Collective. The first song sounds like a hot sunny afternoon viewed through a veil of smoke from your deck, full of shining heady riffs, before it speeds into an unsettling trip. Vocals enter in the second song, swimming amid a dense ocean of warm distortion with swicks of harmony from guitar before the drums lead it into a slow jam. Bass picks and play dashes of melody, with the poignant lyrics lending an emotional weight to the superb instrumentation. Stampeding drums and bass bring their well put together set to a close.
