Trans-Pacific three-piece Favored Nations have announced their debut Australian tour this October/November along with release date for their highly anticipated debut album ‘The Great Unknown’. The band, made up of eccentric front man Morgan Phalen (NYC’s Diamond Nights, Justice collaborator), Surahn Sidhu (DFA Records and co-writer for Usher & Kimbra) and James Curd (Greenskeepers and solo artist of Classic Music, Defected, DFA Records) will kick off their very first Australian tour on 28th October playing Sydney, Geelong, Melbourne, Manly and Adelaide.
With praise already from the likes of SPIN, Buzzfeed, NOISEY and Stereogum, Favored Nations’ second single lifted from the LP, ‘I Can See You’, premiered today with US Fashion and culture media channel, PaperMag.com. The dream-wave single traverses funk, rock, and disco, conjuring musical pairings alongside Fleetwood Mac, Beach Boys and LCD Soundsystem, while the band’s 18-tracks of sunlit pop will drop on 2nd October via etcetc Music.
“Frenetic, house-infused dance-pop with smooth new wave overtones.” – Stereogum
“…a funked up feel fine smash” – NOISEY
“…disco to the Beach Boys” – Earmilk
“A loose, disco-inspired love song” – Buzzfeed
“mellifluous vocals” – SPIN
“a vibrant mix of disco, R&B and pop for fans of the latest Tame Impala record.”
Singer Morgan Phalen offers, “It’s impossible to define the space from which our music is coming from. They are very immediate songs you could sing to, or dance to—they’re almost useful songs, in a lot of ways. They’re able to accompany… living.”
“I think all of us are at a stage in our careers where we have proven ourselves to ourselves. This project for us is pure enjoyment.” Reflects Surahn from his coastal home in Coorong, Adelaide “We don’t look at things in terms of ‘Making it Big’ or search for bigger opportunity. We feel lucky enough to create the way we do. It’s always been about trying to craft interesting pop songs that make people think and dance at the same time.”

After a notable entrance to the electronic scene in 2014, you’d be forgiven for thinking Perth-based producer Palace had disappeared underground. More accurately, Palace aka Jeremy Smith has been underground fine-tuning his craft, the likes of which he’s about to reveal.
Fellow Western Australian Sable tells the Palace story as an uncompromising commitment to great sound and good music while Slumberjack note their consistent marvel of the Palace simple, yet catchy mastery. Palace’s new single, ‘Too Young’ is a momentous return to the fold featuring a tight and witty flow of rapper Ziggy, Palace blends vibe and attitude perfectly into an exciting new format for the Australian electronic scene.
Joining the remix duties for etcetc is Kyle Watson who has also been gaining traction worldwide with support from Pleasurekraft, Trickski, Audiojack, Shiba San, and releases on DIRTYBIRD, Bunny Tiger and This Ain’t Bristol. Watson’s remix makes smooth work of Ziggy’s dope flow putting it in proper g-tech zone…that’s right, g-tech. Traversing the soundboard of future beats, great northern Queensland producer Atticus Beats transforms ‘Too Young’ into Drake-wave. smooth and sensual business from the topical home on Townsville. Get in touch.
‘Too Young’ is out 7th August 2015 on etcetc music.

As we approach the one-handed countdown to our Vivid show, it gives us great pleasure to welcome Klue to our line-up, joining etcetc’s own Kilter, Paces, Set Mo and Godwolf. Klue, one third of the dynamic horn-fuelled hip hop trio True Vibenation, has been receiving much praise of late for his soul inspired single ‘Way I’m Loving You’, which you may have a caught yourself grooving to on FBi or Triple J these past couple of months. Klue joins the June 7th line-up replacing Acaddamy who has regretfully had to pull out due to an interstate gig.
After ‘Way I Love You’ premiered with Acclaim Magazine, Klue was crowned FBi’s Independent Artist of the Week, and rode up the Triple J Unearthed Chart. With a full add to FBi Radio rotation and Triple J support from Richard Kingsmill, Dom Alessio, Linda Marigliano and The Aston Shuffle, Klue is fast becoming a name to watch. FasterLouder spread the word in their ‘8 Aussie Songs You Need To Hear’, placing Klue’s garagey soul jam alongside new tracks from Alpine, Japanese Wallpaper and BAD//DREEMS.
His addition to the etcetc Vivid Music line-up will mark his return from a mammoth tour of Africa with True Vibenation, where the band played festivals in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa.
Featuring a lush tropical paradise created by Entropico, and very special guest performances from Porsches (debut live performance), KLP, Nicole Millar, Deutsch Duke, Madeline Vida and Timothy Lockwood made possible by Jack Daniel’s & JD Future Legends, the etcetc Vivid showcase has become one of the must-see shows of the festival this year – see you there!

After an impressive introduction via his soaring melter ‘They Say’, Kilter dives head first into his new single ‘Want 2’ featuring Sydney duo Porsches (Carl Fox & Jesse Sewell). The resulting track showcases Porsches’ floaty vocals, anchored by Kilter’s laidback beats and stabby synths, evoking images of beachside road trips and half-remembered summer crushes.
After a heavy touring workload in 2014, including a 26-date national tour, Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Listen Out and a nationally broadcast performance at the Australian Open of Surfing for Channel [V], Kilter was well overdue for some studio time. Since discovering a mutual admiration for each other’s work, Kilter and Porsches decided to collaborate, and after two solid months of hard work ‘Want 2’ is a beautiful testament to the production and song writing ability of this electronic dream team.
This year has already seen Kilter drop remixes for ODESZA and Hermitude, as well as his collaboration with GRMM ‘Look At Me’ – a blissed out beats bomb with some weighty vocals from The Cayman Island’s Yung Fusion – cracking 200,000 spins on Soundcloud in two weeks! Next up Kilter will be headlining etcetc’s Vivid Music showcase at The Basement in Sydney on June 7th, and will be joined on stage by Porsches for the first ever live performance of ‘Want 2’. The line-up also includes Paces, Set Mo and special guests Nicole Millar, KLP, Deutsch Duke.

Is there something in the water in Adelaide?
Following the release of his ‘Light & Sound’ EP in late 2014, synth maestro Luke Million and fellow Adelaidean Jesse Davidson pair up to deliver the moody electronic single ‘Fear The Night’.
After a string of remixes for Tkay Maidza, Porsches and Voltaire Twins, ‘Fear The Night’ came out of mutual admiration for one another’s work, and formed a collaboration which they both feel sits at the perfect middle ground between their respective profiles.
Luke says, “Fear The Night’ came together so seamlessly. I invited Jesse around to my studio to hang and listen to some music…he was drawn to one demo in particular and within minutes lyrics and melodies started to flow. Working together was awesome, and the finished track was a soundscape that meets somewhere in the middle of both our worlds.”
Jesse has not been short of attention in his own right this past 12 months. Elevated by Triple J’s Unearthed High competition, a #97 result in Triple J’s Hottest 100 for his Japanese Wallpaper feature ‘Making Friends’, heavy rotation on his single ‘Laika’ and an amazing Like A Version performance in April 2015 of Childish Gambino’s ‘Sober’. ‘Fear The Night’ comes at a time where both Luke and Jesse head to the northern hemisphere with dates through UK and Europe. The pair will meet up with Tkay Maidza in Brighton, UK on May 16 for a show demonstrating the results of Adelaide’s water supply.
Fear The Night is out 22nd May 2015 on etcetc music
The new single comes moments after Luke’s video for ‘Transylvania Disco’ capturing the early 80’s vibe of the original, and pieced together some crafty security camera vision of Luke Million’s multi-layered performance.keep looking »
