Flume @ MHOW, 4/2/2013
Since he last played here during CMJ 2012, Australian producer Flume (aka Harley Streten) released his debut album in November, which debuted at #2 on the Aussie charts (stuck behind One Direction) but later managed to grab the top spot, and has gone platinum there. So no surprise that his NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (4/2) was sold out and packed with expats from his native land. Flume's tour hits Washington DC tonight (4/3). The crowd didn't seem to mind that his set was just under an hour. More pics from MHOW, including opening sets from JDH and Eprom, are below.

DOWNLOAD: Dune Rats - "Red Light, Green Light" (MP3)
Speaking of Australia, Brisbane fuzz rock duo Dune Rats (aka Danny Beus and BC Michaels), who were one of Andy from Cake Shop's "21 Amazing Experience of 2012", surfaced with two EPs in 2011, Sexy Beach and Social Atoms, and they're planning to follow that with another EP, titled Smile, and eventually a debut full length at some point this year. No exact details on those releases exist, but the band recently released a single, "Red Light, Green Light," which you can download for free at the top of this post. It's of the Wavves-y stoner/beach rock variety and you can watch the video below, which consists entirely of both members smoking a variety of bongs (and I'm pretty sure they're actually doing it).
Dune Rats will be coming to the US for a tour surrounding SXSW this March which hits NYC on March 20 at Cake Shop (other bands TBA), March 21 at Shea Stadium with The Beets, Hard Nips, Juniper Rising, and Heeney, and March 24 at Sons of Essex. A list of all dates and the tour flyer below.
Their SXSW shows include the annual Aussie BBQ, and Dune Rats are only one of many Aussie bands coming over to Austin for SXSW, including Alpine, Flume, Kirin J Callinan, WIM, and others. The full list of Australian bands that will be at SXSW is below.

Australian producer Flume (aka Harley Streten) was last in the US in October for CMJ and a few other shows afterwards, and back in December, it was announced that he'd be returning for SXSW. Now, a full tour surrounding SXSW has been announced, including a NYC date on April 2 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (2/22) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (2/20) at noon. All dates are listed below.
Flume released his self titled debut album in Australia last November, but it finally got a US release yesterday (2/19) via Mom + Pop. The album's beats pull from hip hop and R&B, and it's led by chopped and pitch-shifted vocal samples, and some live singers/rappers as well. You can stream the entire album and listen to a remixes of album cut "Left Alone" by Bobby Tank and by Chrome Sparks, along with all dates, below.
As mentioned, NYC rapper Kilo Kish will be opening for SBTRKT at Terminal 5 on Thursday (10/11) with Koreless and Nick Hook (tickets). But you'll also have a couple chances to catch her in smaller venues about a week after that during CMJ. She's playing the Yours Tru.ly.Gorilla vs Bear (YTGvB) and Forest Family showcase at Brooklyn's 285 Kent on October 18 with DIANA (whose members include Destroyer saxophonist Joseph Shabason), Sam Flax (who we just profiled), Atlanta rapper ForteBowie, Ryan Hemsworth, Flume, TOPS, and Empress Of. Evy Jane, who plays live at Glasslands the next day (10/19) (another Yours Truly party), DJs in between sets. The flier for that show is below.
Kilo also plays the previously mentioned Life or Death CMJ showcase on October 20 at 92YTribeca with Hilly Eye, Dogbite, Twerps, Slug Guts, Jozef Van Wissem, Mac DeMarco, Maria Minerva, Sky Ferreira, and two special guests. Tickets for that show are on sale or you can try to get in with your CMJ badge.
Kilo Kish is set to release a new single for her song "Navy," which was produced by Odd Future's The Internet (who Kilo toured with over the summer) on 12" vinyl this week (10/8) via The Blue Rider. It out now digitally and comes with a remix by MeLo-X on the b-side. You can watch the video for "Navy," and check out a list of all known Kilo Kish dates (more TBA), below.
