Tom West's raddest Adelaide bands

Tom West's raddest Adelaide bands

The indie-folker offers a few gems ahead of his own live album recording shows.

Adelaide-based indie-folk dude Tom West will be performing two live-album recording shows this January to celebrate the release of a new single, High Again, which you can stream below, and also turn into an album due later this year called Golden Fleeces via Poke In The Eye Records.

He'll be playing The Grace Emily Hotel in Adelaide on Thursday January 28, and The Workers Club in Melbourne Sunday January 31. And before you head along take a squiz below at a bunch of cool bands West is particularly fond of from around his home state.

And for more great music out of Adelaide, we just launched a new series of Spotify playlists spruiking bands by where they come from, and HERE is the South Australian playlist.

Sparkspitter

Easily one of the best live shows kicking around town. This music feels like it is scientifically crafted: myriad, intricate, precise parts all woven into oscillating soundscapes. It is super cool, awesomely clever music.

Maggie Rutjens

Maggie Rutjens

After apparently taking some time out of playing shows, I recently caught Maggie at a mutual show we played and it was a pleasure to get re-acquainted with her music. Brutally honest songwriting delivered with gloriously precise vocals; Maggie is not a run of the mill singer-songwriter, check her out.

Wasted Wanderers

Wasted Wanderers

Evidently forming after impromptu performances at the Grace Emily Hotel’s infamous Monday night open mic nights, Wasted Wanderers are an impeccably smooth bluesy rock band. When the extended band lines up, be prepared for massive soulful harmonies to compliment the gut busting licks.

Naomi Keyte

Naomi Keyte

Ethereal folk. Naomi’s voice and songs are transportative, subtle and great. She delivers familiar themes with a complexity of melody and structure that results in cool songs that are listenable over and over again. I’ve enjoyed her debut EP, Edge Of Morning, over many sessions on the couch and can’t wait for the next project.

Blush Response

Blush Response

Think washed out wall of sounds, distantly curling guitar lines, driving rhythms, fuzz and reverb. Blush Response have earned accolades among the online shoegaze community – for good reason. Check out a live show and let the sounds wash over you.
