Adopted Sydneysider Snob Scrilla has been taking his indie-o-synchatic hip-pop vibe around the country for ages now, but we’re particularly pumped for this week’s set of shows. Why, because if you’re lucky enough to get along to see him, you’ll also cop an eye and ear full of dynamic duo Dash and Will. Not sure if there is a more exciting Aussie pop pairing than that, as these clips should demonstrate. Like Molly would say, do yourself a favour. Dates below.
Wednesday 2 September – Oxford Tavern (Wollongong)
Friday 4 September – ANU Union Bar (Canberra)
Saturday 5 September – Oxford Art Factory (Sydney)

Ok, here’s a new segment we’d like to try out. Basically it’s about something we’re newly in love with. Could be a song, a book, a bar. Could be a dog or something fun to do on the weekend. If you have any ideas, send them in.
But for this special first edition, we’re going to run the blog Weird Tapes. Basically, it contains heaps of downloadable tracks of the glitchy, electronic persuasion. There are also some great videos like the one below. Check it out, you’re gonna love it.
Do you remember when Napoleon Dynamite first came out? Kind of took everyone by surprise, didn’t it? For real, I can’t think of a single friend of mine that didn’t find themselves quoting it for months after seeing it. (Tina, come get some ham!) Well, having followed that up with the very funny Nacho Libre, filmmakers Jared and Jerusha Hess are about to release Gentlemen Broncos, which is about an aspiring science fiction writer who’s story is stolen by a renowned author played by Germaine from Flight of The Concords. Not sure if you need any more information than that. Check out the trailer below.

Friends of ours are just finishing up a tour of NZ and apparently, they’re clocking up some major miles. Dear Hype,
I’m writing this huddled up in the backseat of a kiwi green Tarago, sandwiched between our piano player and about a metric tonne of music gear. The moon roof is open and the cold alpine air is probably the only thing keeping us awake. That, and The Wall by Pink Floyd. We’re on the Desert Road which takes us over high country, weaving through dry scrub past these enormous snow covered mountains. I think I just saw an eagle, but Tim reckons it was a kite. Anyway, we’ve been on this island for 12 incredible days and we only have eight hours left.
Wish you were here,
R. Out of town? Drop us a postcard at: email@example.com
