Come for a journey into Sydney's underground with Yon Yonson's favourite local artists
The trio are currently celebrating the release of their rad new album, Yes No Sorry.
Prolific Sydney trio Yon Yonson recently dropped their new album Yes No Sorry, their first with the legends at TEEF Recordings, and their fourth overall. The 17-track release is a fantastic listen from start to finish, strongly linked to their home of Western Sydney and traversing a plethora of genres over the journey. It's one of the year's finest releases so far, and to celebrate the occasion the Yonnies decided instead of talking themselves up, they wanted to highlight a few local artists they really dig. Check 'em out below for a further insight into the band, along with a stream of Yes No Sorry - which you can also buy from BANDCAMP.
YON YONSON'S FIVE FAVOURITE LOCALS:
We’re all ridiculously into Bilby at the moment. Listening to Bilby’s latest album Botanicals its obvious that he’s got his unique sound absolutely down pat, and the resulting mix of hip hop, chiller guitar and bucket loads of miscellaneous x-factor is very cool indeed. He also features on Simo Soo’s new track I See U which has to be an early contender for track of the year/century.
I’m a newcomer to Gussy’s music but so far everything I’ve heard has been cool as hell, as Gussy mixes introspective songwriting with catchy pop melodies and production. Also if you’re in Sydney Gussy is supporting another one of our favourite Australian artists Lonelyspeck at the Gaelic Club in March, and you’d be a big idiot to miss it.
Setec makes genuinely beautiful music, which is not something you can often say about bedroom producers, but I’ll make a bloody exception in this case. Word on the street is that he has a new album dropping in 2k17, and if my sources are correct it definitely won’t be one to miss.
Still haven’t stopped listening to Don’t Let the Kids Win. Its crazy how much Julia Jacklin’s music stands out purely on the back of good songwriting and I love that nothing on her album sounds overproduced or over thought. Let the kids play guitar!
Decided to go for a bit of a throwback with this last choice. I remember Grit Aglow was one of our favourite albums way back when we started Yon Yonson all those many moons ago, so it's very cool to see Megastick Fanfare still putting out quality records with their latest album Nighs. No one blends pop and experimental music more perfectly than the mega sticks.
