EXCLUSIVE // Psychedelic Porn Crumpets: Jack McEwan’s Top 5 Bands Coming Out Of Perth

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are back with their hot new release release of Tally-Ho and announcement of their brand new album SHYGA! The Sunlight Mound’ (Releasing February 2021). We caught up with frontman Jack McEwan to get some music recommendations; here’s his Top 5 Bands Coming Out of Perth right now!

Grievous Bodily Calm

Jack: One of the best live bands I’ve seen home or internationally. They played recently at Wave Rock Weekender having a criminally early slot, the crowd was all sat down chilling in the sun for the first song and by the time they finished they had a full packed audience on their feet dancing away, was lordian to witness. Brilliant band. 

Airline Food

Jack: One of Perth’s best up and comers. Their recorded material is already brilliantly produced, has such a mature sound to it even though they do it themselves. A mix of Mild High Club and Mac Demarco. Great transporting music to get lost within. 

People Taking Pictures 

Jack: This is Rish’s project from PPC but I have no part to play in it so I’m allowed to big it up. They played their first show a few weeks back and it was complex, well though out, gliding with ease through genres and explores more musical formalities in one set than most bands do in a lifetime. I’ve heard Rish’s new work and it’s a brilliant leap into new contemporary grounds, allowing Nelson (POW! Negro) to find his own, open up and combine hip-hop styles with psych elements that are drenched with mesmerically inspiring textures. 5 thumbs up. 

Special Feelings

Jack: Another act that is pushing boundaries; The term ‘experimental’ which was for years termed with heavy rock and metal is now being passed on to jazz and hip-hop. It’s really refreshing seeing new music that feels honestly created rather than an attempt to manipulate someone else’s sound. Watched them live a few weeks back and they had the crowd transfixed, a great rhythm section accompanied with a landscape of vibrant synth tones make for a great listen. Really excited to hear their recorded work. 

Dulcie

Jack: We played our first headline show of 2020 with Dulcie and given the differences between our two genres, it actually went down a treat. The crowd was packed before they played and the set to follow was pure class. Great musicianship, great stage persona and exceptional three-part harmonies that even ELO would be proud of writing.
