3 reasons i'm all about new zealand


the soon-to-be-mum whose clothes fill the majority of space in my wardrobe - Karen Walker


4 boys who rock skivys better than any fucking wiggle - Cut Off Your Hands


Jonathan Bree and Heather Mansfield started making records together in 1998 as The Brunettes. I was missing out. The first I heard of them was their second full-length LP out 2004, Mars Loves Venus. Their new album is Structure and Cosmetics, released everywhere else on Sub Pop (Sub Pop!!) but in local record stores courtesy of the very wonderful Speak 'n Spell. Actually, Cut Off Your Hands are signed to Speak 'n Spell too! Damn, for a label working out the back of a second-hand clothing store in Chippendale they are doing fine, fine things.

I'm seeing The Brunettes perform tomorrow night at the Hoey. I hope they play Mars Loves Venus.

Please go to their myspace and listen to B.A.B.Y, then download if you were alien and then go to 416 Bourke Street Surry Hills tomorrow night and watch them perform their pop magic
