VIDEO/TOUR: Bluejuice – “On My Own”

Bluejuice

Bluejuice are renowned for having cool video ideas. Anyone who didn’t find “Act Yr Age” hilarious should probably chill out a bit, and “Vitriol” will forever be a stellar example of doing budget film-clips right.

“On My Own” continues that tradition. It’s a karaoke video that looks like it was ripped from an old VHS, and they really nail the cheesy aesthetic. The song isn’t bad either. Check it out below.


Bluejuice are also hitting the road with The Cairos and Loon Lake (except in Brisbane). Check out the details!

LEAK!: Johnny Foreigner – Johnny Foreigner Vs Everything

Johnny Foreigner Vs Everything

WONDERING WHY THERE’S A LEAK HERE? Well it’s not real. Check out this to find out what I joined in on.

I’m not normally in the habit of posting leaks at On The Tune, but today is a pretty special day.

Johnny Foreigner’s new album has leaked ahead of it’s November release, and I figured I may as well share it with you. You’re going to just get it somewhere else – may as well share the love, right?

It’s an album full of frenzied guitar jams, and slow-crawl acoustic numbers. If you like JoFo already, this’ll be right up your alley – this is basically the culmination of all of the work and effort they’ve put into past releases, and it shows. Pretty strong contender for Album of the Year if you ask me, provided Los Campesinos! don’t take the cake. 2011 is shaping up pretty nicely.

Artist: Johnny Foreigner
Album: Johnny Foreigner Vs Everything
Size: 64.2 Mb.

Download – Mediafire

Tracklist:
1. if im the most famous boy you’ve fucked then honey yr in trouble
2. with who, who and what i’ve got
3. 200x
4. hulk hoegaarden, gin kinsella, david duvodkany, etc 1
5. johnny foreigner vs you
6. concret1
7. electricity vs the dead
8. jess, you got yr song so leave
9. supermorning
10. what drummers get
11. new street, you can take it
12. concret2
13. (don’t) show us your fangs
14. you vs everything
15. doesn’t believe in angels
16. the swell _ like neverwhere
17. alternate timelines piling up

Note: The track list is going off the file names, as tracks hadn’t been tagged properly.

Don’t forget to buy stuff from these guys too. Support them, go to shows, buy merch, etc. They’re brilliant artists.

VIDEO: Jumping Ships – “Talisman”

Jumping Ships

Alcopop are a brilliant label. C’mon – Johnny Foreigner, Screaming Maldini, Stagecoach – what more do you need? Nothing, right? I know, they’re so good. Well lucky you, because you’ve got more! Jumping Ships are a part of that extensive list of “more”, and boy have they got a huge sound.

It’s truly a crime that their latest clip for song “Talisman” has so few views (505 at current count). Like a parent that’s caught you coming home at 4 in the morning, the band explode at the most unexpected moments, and the surprising way that the drums and guitars unconventionally weave together in the final moments will make the song latch onto the awesome-sector of your brain.

You should still listen though! It’s not painful at all. You can grab a free download of “Talisman” at their BandCamp page over here!

BRAND NEW: Bluejuice – “Cheap Trix”

Bluejuice

Everyone likes music with a bit of bite. Music that leans to the side and says “Well I’m a little bit different, but damn can you still dance to me!”. Well Bluejuice have delivered just that with the premiere of new track “Cheap Trix”! It’s taken from their third album Company, which is to be released on the 28th of October. Listening to it feels like you’ve wandered into some by-gone era’s nightclub, but it’s here that Bluejuice prove that they’ve nailed the art of creating singalong potential – this is going to be a huge one live!

“Cheap Trix” is available for four weeks, starting today, and you can download it from their Facebook page over here.

TOUR: Gyroscope

Gyroscope have just announced the Choose Your Own Adventure tour! It’s going to be their only headline tour for 2011, and will see them hit the road through October and November to play a handful of dates. Sydney and Adelaide punters are especially lucky, as the band have managed to make the shows there all ages.

But more interestingly, this is a tour where you (yes, you!) will choose the setlist! By the democratic process of a Facebook vote, fans will be able to choose which songs Gyroscope practice and take out on the road with them.

Keen to vote? Run over here and like their Facebook page so that you can vote when it’s open.

All the tour details are below.
