Presented by Lost and Lonesome Recording Co
Lost and Lonesome Recording Co. is an Australian independent record label founded by Mark Monnone of The Lucksmiths in 1997, based in Melbourne, Australia. The label specialises in indie pop, and has released both recordings by local artists and local releases by international indie bands.
Although the name may suggest otherwise, Monnone Alone are a bona fide pop group based around the sagacious songwriting of Mark Monnone (ex-Lucksmiths) and featuring members of A-grade pop tinkerers Architecture in Helsinki, Mid-State Orange and Aleks & the Ramps. That’s almost as bona fide as it gets.
With an unabashed love for all things pop, Melbourne Cans soup up the girl group swagger of the Shangri-Las and the Crystals with the guitar-centricities of bands like Pavement and Jesus and Mary Chain. Reeking of after-hours city laneways and seedy dive bars at the peak of a sweltering summer, the second Melbourne Cans album Heat of the Night is crammed with film noir and neo-noir references: jilted imagery of hope and despair, of lust and desperation, of impossible promises and busted dreams.
Making a welcomed return to the stage, The Icypoles are four gals who call Melbourne home but might just as easily shimmy into a Godard dance scene or serve up a slice of pie at the Double R Diner.
Melbourne’s maestro of the loop pedal Great Earthquake returns to the stage on the back of his third album Thinking & Making. In his musical performance Noah utilises a number of instruments to create soundscapes, organically built up in time, with a strong emphasis on rhythm. Often referred to as a scientist or magician, Noah uses illusions and trickery that pushes the boundaries of what is the ‘one man band’.
