I was first introduced to Mystery Jets during my time in the Channel V Presenter Search a few months ago, when top 4 finalist Charlie Cotton reviewed their latest album, Radlands. Assuming they must be cool if Cotton liked them, I put my hand up to check out their final show of their Australian tour.
Larry Heath sat backstage over the weekend to chat with the UK's Fat as Butter to talk about Texas outfits, Red Bull sleeps, touring around Asia, underground music scenes, returning to Australia and much more in this UNCUT interview... listen on!
Young Men Dead's combination of tribal drumming, shimmering synths and narrative-inspired lyrics have finally culminated in their forthcoming EP, with lead single "Courageous" being released as the first taste. The Brisbane band have been garnering attention for their electric shows, earning them spots performing alongside the likes of Muscles, Yuksek and Kate Nash.
UK indie rockers Mystery Jets are coming back to Australia with their new record Radlands for a little tour, including an appearance at the Fat As Butter Festival. I caught with guitarist William Rees to chat about the record, one of my favourites this year, and also about what it was like to record away from their London base.
London's Mystery Jets will be returning to Australia in September to perform a series of shows in promotion of their latest record, Radlands. Already having been announced to appear on this year's Fat As Butter Festival, the quartet will also be travelling down the East Coast with their great indie pop sounds.

From May 10th to the 12th, the city of Brighton was overrun with musicians, music lovers, media, managers and mayhem as venues across this happening, English, seaside city came alive with the sounds of The Great Escape Festival.
Mystery Jets are here for a number of different festival dates (Rhythm & Vines, Pyramid Rock, and Field Day to name a few), so I was lucky enough to catch a side-show to see them in a more intimate setting, on yet another gloomy summer's day in Sydney.
