it's good too see any young bands making a dent somewhere. even though they aren' that young any more, it still gives me hope.

That list is full of good young, Australian bands though. And honestly, they're easily the worst.

The Decoration's EP, Anywhere Is Home drops on January 12th. It's terrific.

Weird... I only saw Hands Like Houses at Ev's a month or so ago and now they're signed?! Well done boys! Yaaaaaaay, Say Anything. Happy for Soundwave but I still know heaps of people that want to go and can't. Oh well, glad I got my ticket.

xRadioJoyx 01/09/12 05:22 AM

I'm counting down the days until Soundwave. Going on my own, but I don't really mind. It'll be worth it.

they aren't that bad. they've been working hard for years and stuck to what they wanna do. sure they dont have the best reputation, or it may not be my favorite music, but i still gotta admire their work ethic.

they've put in the hard yards, not just some indie one hit band that the triple j crowd fawn over.
