Cannibal Spiders

With members of Mr Bungle, Pure Evil Trio, Darth Vegas, Green Mohair Suits, Secret Chiefs 3 and many more bands on board, it's hard to believe that Cannibal Spiders are just a quartet. But these guys have all been very busy playing music for a very long time, and they’ve got the chops to show for it. Primal carries on from where the left off with their debut, with more dark exciting business. EP on Romero Records.

Julian Curwin & Jane Sheldon

Romero Records (The Tango Saloon, Umlaut) release a collaborative LP between Jane Sheldon and label boss Julian Curwin. Sheldon is a classical soprano with a haunting, mournful voice. On Crossing it comes backed by Curwin’s stately classical guitar playing to create a record of fragile beauty. Anyone who has enjoyed the recent reissues of early 20th Century Spanish musics by Death Is Not The End will enjoy this.

The Tango Saloon

The Tango Saloon are very keen on playing around with the conventions of Spaghetti Western soundtracks: the instrumentation of these songs certainly calls to mind that magical cowboy imagery. These aren’t just mood pieces though, but actual songs, led by Elana Stone’s voice on most tracks. Suspicion is on Romero Records.

Julian Curwin
The Mango Balloon - Volume 3

Get ready for some kind of moving and shaking with Julian Curwin. The Mango Balloon Volume 3 is the third instalment from the Sydney guitarist. On this one Curwin has got special guest Mr fiddle himself Shenzo Gergorio to supply some extra flavours. It's a mixture of European folk styling’s with contemporary and chamber-jazz textures with vast array of (mainly) acoustic instruments. Out on CD from Romero Records.

Julian Curwin
The Mango Balloon - Volume 4

A member of The Tango Saloon, an experimental tango band (that’s a thing) from Australia, Julian Curwin has taken a step back with his solo outings and the result is perfectly cinematic, fit for a noir western. The fourth volume of his series The Mango Balloon features guest keyboardist Matt McMahon.

The Tango Saloon
Don’t Close Your Eyes

The Tango Saloon are a tango band who have fixed the genre tag 'spaghetti western' on themselves, which is pretty cool. 'Don't Close Your Eyes' is a new 7" comprising of a single from their upcoming record. It's an all Australian affair, this one, featuring the vocals of singer Elana Stone, who gives the synth -pop tune its high-noon drama. On the flip there's the b-side "Dance Of The Ivory Stiletto". Pretty Sergio Leone, guys.
