Yet more great music from Melbourne

Listen up readers! This Friday afternoon we're pleased to wave in your general direction music from new Melbourne group New War, yet another great band from that fertile city and one whose percussive, at times dub-tinged intensity sits nicely alongside existing Quietus favourites My Disco and HTRK. The track we're streaming, 'Revealer', is one of the poppier moments from their self-titled debut album, which comes out on Fast Weapons, the label run by The Gossip's Nathan Howdeshell... "Gossip played with New War in Australia, our minds were blown ever since," Nathan tells us. "Chris P. (New War vocalist) played in Shoplifting with Gossip's drummer Hannah, everything those kids do is cutting edge with glass. They were minimal, on fire and reminded me how cool and mutant Australian music can be. I feel blessed to release this album." For more New War, visit their facebook.
