Falloe – Falloe

The press release for Melbourne-based band Falloe playfully quips that it’s members “got into music for free booze and women, but have had limited success in both”. Maybe their haircuts are keeping the ladies at bay. Beards-a-plenty, dreadlocks thicker than those sported by the Predator and one member boasting what can only be described as “Weird Al Yankovich” hair, these guys need a barber. Stat.

Hairy follicle follies aside, the self-titled second album from Falloe is rather enjoyable. Woozy slide guitars and hushed vocal harmonies make ballads poignant without being sappy and the folk-tinged rockers make me want to get drunk with “salt-of-the-earth” types. Looks like someone has to dig through his wardrobe to find his jean jacket.

K-Holes – Dismania

In addition to being one of the ‘core’ medicines defined by the World Health Organization, ketamine is also used in veterinary medicine…and to get people high out of their minds.

New York City band K-Holes get their name from folks who like to snort horse tranquilizer up their noses. Under the influence, users can experience a K-hole, a slang term describing the “subjective state of dissociation from the body which may mimic the phenomenology of schizophrenia, out-of-body experiences or near–death experiences”.

Needless to say, Dismania is murky and dingy proto-punk and, and much like witnessing an overdose in the Botanic Gardens, is hard to look way from.
