With Texas Tea (www.facebook.com/texasteamusic) and


The Phoncurves (www.thephoncurves.com)


Texas Tea - 8.30pm


Texas Tea are Kate Jacobson and Benjamin P. Dougherty; a two-piece (+ touring double bass and drummer) indie-country-soul act. The guys are one of Brisbane's most well-loved bands, having topped Triple Z's Hot 100 twice, released two huge national critically acclaimed albums and play with acts such as Ben Kweller, Iron and Wine and Cold War Kids. They have toured extensively throughout Australia and Europe - where they have a large following in France.


The guys have just finished their third album, Sad Summer Hits, which was produced and mixed with Magoo and recorded over six days at his Applewood studio. The album is their best work yet - with a retro sound reminiscent of 60s soul and country.


The album is released mid October, the guys are touring through late October and early November.


You can listen to the first two singles off the album here: texastea.bandcamp.com


The Phoncurves - 9.30pm


The Phoncurves are Abbie Roberts and Naomi Burrell, who met while studying together at uni. After forming a fast friendship, the girls quickly bonded over their shared musical passion and over time began to introduce their songs to each other. With striking frocks and gorgeous locks; their performances are fun, intimate and honest and their self-produced music is a gorgeous exploration of their friendship, doubts and love (both lost and found).


The duo blend modern day new-folk and indie with a subtle hint at the music of yesteryear; toeing the line between alternative folk, indie pop and alt-country. Their use of gorgeous vocal harmonies has become a characteristic inherent in their music with the act sure to become a staple on Australia’s music scene.


The EP was recorded, produced and mixed by the girls’ themselves, showing skill, depth and maturity well beyond their years and proving their worth as artists.


After playing with acts such as Passenger, Paper Kites,on the current Art Of Sleeping tour as well as Winter People, The Phoncurves are well on their way to infiltrating the Australian music scene. The Phoncurves’ self-produced, self-mixed and self-titled debut EP is due out in early October 2012 with a launch and celebration at X and Y on 5th October.


For a limited time, members of the public can stream the full Phoncurves EP HERE.
