Friends Of Rachel Worth
The Go-Betweens return with their first album of new material in twelve years 'The Friends Of Rachel Worth' is the follow up to the highly successful '16 Lovers Lane' released in 1988. Original members Robert Forster and Grant McLennan produced the album and the line-up for recording includes members of Sleater-Kinney, Quasi and Elliott Smith's band.
Australia's Hands Like Houses will release their new LP, Unimagine via Rise Records. The record was produced by James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Paramore, The Academy Is).
Frontman Trenton Woodley says, "Unimagine, for us, is the result of the last two years of our lives. Everything we have seen, learned and experienced, personally and as a band, has found its way into this record one way or another. It's one thing to write an album, but to create something out of a deeper understanding of yourself and your abilities, especially with all the pressures of expectations you've built up along the way is a massive challenge. And in a way, that's what the album is about – finding happiness and satisfaction by deconstructing what has brought you this far and creating a foundation to create and grow from."
Driven by rich lyricism and melodic, emotive vocals, the band presents a complex and finely crafted mix of guitar and electronics, drawing from a broad range of influence including Thrice,
