about

The first GARY!

Skronky noises from Taipei, Taiwan and pearly sounds from Queensland, Australia.

FORESTS (TAIPEI, TAIWAN)
Forests is the coolest fucking band that most people we know have never heard. What isn’t shrouded in myth and legend about these Taiwanese rock’n’rollers is their extraordinary ability to genre-bend effectively. Their sound manages to simultaneously morph between King Khan and the Shrines, Television, and Wire, while maintaining a level of constructive variance that might convince you they hadn’t actually ever listened to any of their musical forebears.

WHITE LODGE (GOLD COAST, QLD, AUSTRALIA)
Much like their name, White Lodge’s music has an old soul; early rock n’ roll and soul influences are evident in the doo-wop vocalizations while fast paced garage-surf hangs loose over reverb-heavy vocals. Quick timing changes and short, hook-heavy tracks keep things from seeming formulaic. White Lodge would be equally at home slamming whiskey shots out of a friend’s navel as they would be playing the slow-dance at the garage-surf dance hall.

Track Name: Forests - Ego Bender
It's a make believe literature
It's a pseudo lie
It's a sleek feel tweaker
Made you say how wry you roll
Your sitcom refined
You're moving minds
With a sicky sneak attitude
You're high
Now, come out from your hole
Yeah, you're coming up and seeing the light
C'mon, forget what you wore
That's it You're mine to hold

It's your make believe literature
Your golden wine
After a sung tong lit night I'll call you mine
Yeah, it makes you look bad
Oh, you think it makes you look bad
Well, don't worry about it
You'll see
Oh well, you'll see
Well, you know you're mine to hold
Track Name: Forests - The Fall
If I should fall, you know what you're gonna do
If I should fall, don't think cause you know it's you
Track Name: White Lodge - Her Spell
I don't want to fall asleep cause I don't want to dream again
Every time I see your face I know this dream is gonna end
And I could try and replace you but I know I won't
Because the devil you know is better than the one you don't

Brown eyes, you put your spell on me
Darling, and I can't let it be
Baby, You stole my heart away
Honey, and I don't know what to say

You left your hair in my bed and your mark on my soul
And I got you young but I'll remember till I'm old
Forever a polariod your eyes all-knowing and bright
Memories like ghosts remain of those few nights

Brown eyes, you put your spell on me
Darling, and I can't let it be
Baby, You stole my heart away
Honey, and I don't know what to say
Track Name: White Lodge - Flower Eyes
It's on days like this that I begin to feel alright
My heart has thawed the sun is shining bright
Now under these palms I am starting over
I'm gonna stay on the shore where everything moves slower

I'm looking through flowers I got a smile on my face
With my head in the clouds I'm enjoying these days

It's away from the grind that I can breathe again
I relinquish everything I struggled to defend
I'm so much freer now there's no stamp on me
The time has come to start being who I want to be

I'm looking through flowers I got a smile on my face
With my head in the clouds I'm enjoying these days
And I'll be laughing cause I found my new home
With sharks and dolphins, fibreglass and with foam
