Too long have our dance floors lay dormant. Too long has ‘mash’ been of the potato variety. Australia’s favourite mash up maestros Yacht Club DJs will settle the score this April with their Oddity Number 5 Tour - an East Coast run of oddball proportions and the namesake of their fifth infamous mixtape.
It follows the duo’s stint through the UK and US last year; personally invited by Grammy Award winners Mumford & Sons to join them on their Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers, alongside Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, HAIM, The Walkmen and The Vaccines.
After winning international hearts, and no doubt a few brewskies along the way, Yacht Club DJs busied themselves back home, working on their very first original EP. Recorded at Red Door Studio with Woody Annison (Dune Rats, Children Collide and Hunting Grounds), the EP is set for release later this year.
Whether in ‘da club, on ‘da bus, or at your great grand mamma’s retirement home, Yacht Club DJs sure know how to bring the party, with their mixtape mantle already hosting ‘Kleptomania’, ‘Demons of Gymnastics’, ‘They Mostly Come At Night’ and ‘Find Me A Macchiato Pronto’. Their latest mixtape instalment Oddity Number 5 will hit the interwebs next month, a free download brimming with Yacht Club’s fearless repertoire spanning 60s blues, 90s pop, Disney soundtracks, death metal and everything in between.

It can be difficult to spot that unique snowflake caught in the avalanche of folk music on our airwaves. But McMorrow is proving to be an artist who deserves to stand out from the pack.
Fresh from performing alongside the likes of Chet Faker, Neil Finn and the Flight Facilities at the Falls Festival 2014, McMorrow performed to a sell-out crowd at The Metro on Thursday night. He still bears the appearance of a musician who is surprised by his success.Read more...
