Methyl Ethel in concert to end the week. With the wave of bands coming from Australia in recent years (Tame Impala, Jagwar Ma, Pond), the addition of Perth Art Rockers, Methyl Ethel to the mix give further evidence there is something in the Australian water supply we need to know about.
Around since 2014, Methyl Ethel have been getting rave reviews, accolades all over the place and an international reputation that all add up to the fact that Australis is currently cranking out some pretty amazing music.
Recorded this past May in Melbourne, and broadcast live by Triple-J (one of the must-hear radio stations streaming around the world), this concert is part of a tour promoting their latest album, Everything Is Forgotten, and continuing with a flurry of great reviews and positive buzz. Best part; they will be coming to L.A. on November 2nd and 3rd, as part of a lightening fast U.S./Canada tour that takes them back to Australia at the end of November and continuing through December.
Aside from L.A., they are playing San Diego, St. Louis, Chicago, Omaha, Columbus, Brooklyn and finishing up the U.S. part of the tour in Washington D.C. before heading back home and a cross-country tour there.
It might be too late to get tickets to the L.A. show (they’re playing The Fonda in Hollywood), but if you’re anywhere around the rest of the cities on the tour, you really need to catch them, as I suspect they are heading for bigger venues next time around. Fans already know, but if you haven’t heard of them yet, definitely check them out – and this Melbourne gig is a great place to start.
‘Nuff said – hit play and crank it up.
