Various - Sunny Side Up 2LPBrownswood Recordings
Vinyl LP pressing. A new generation of young, independent musicians, in share-houses and makeshift home studios, in the garages and backyard sheds of Melbourne's suburban sprawl, have embraced a brash DIY spirit. Taking cues from soul, jazz and club culture, they've stamped an uninhibited style on a sun-bleached spool of influences. A snapshot of a movement that's ready to boil over, the nine acts on Sunny Side Up have grown out of a city free from the weight of overbearing musical traditions, where outside influences are freely re-interpreted and mashed together. A celebratory record, it's energized by a collaborative spirit as much as by the variety of styles which it collides together.
