Heavy winding psychedelics from Mt. Mountain who formed in mid 2012 in Perth, Western Australia.
The release of a well-received demo ‘Omed’ in 2013 and their debut self- produced Mt Mountain “EP”
in 2014 has led to the winning of the 2014 WAM “Breakthrough Artist” award and
international/national support shows and tours with the likes of Om, Bardo Pond, King Gizzard
& The Wizard Lizard, Stonefield and Earthless.”

Straight off the back of our mid 2014 EP release, We’ve spent the later half of the year
back in the studio writing and recording our debut full-length album. December brings a brand
new single “Chantry” from the upcoming album recorded by Broderick Madden-Scott & Jeremy
Beste at Fremantle Recording Studios. The new single will also be the second vinyl release from
the band pressed alongside another new track on a very limited edition 7 Inch that will be launched
on December 19 at Mojos Bar Fremantle.


The French based Band The Liminanas Hailing from Perpignan, in the south of France The Limiñanas are a band that straddles the boundary between psychedelic, shoegaze, and yé-yé. With hazy, reverb-laden hooks, combined at times with noisy distortion, and fronted by effortlessly cool vocals, reminiscent of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot, the band is at once timeless and quintessentially French. Getting their start in October of 2009, The Limiñanas are the brainchild of Lio and Marie Limiñana. Beginning as a home studio project the duo spent much time flipping through John Barry and Ennio Morricone LP’s and books on Victorian era architecture, watching Noir films, and basking in the sun of southern France seeking inspiration. Their first single came by way of Chicago’s venerable Hozac records, followed up by a single 7” release, “Je-ne-suis-pas-tres-drogue”, on Trouble In Mind in April 2010. It’s been noted that their are traces of Serge Gainsbourg, Beck, Stereolab, Gospel, Yeh-Yeh, guitar fuzz freakouts, and Nugget’s-era stompers in the Limiñanas music. All of which may be true, but Limiñanas’ sound is irreverent and singular.

To date, the band has released three full-length albums – the latest, titled Costa Blanca’ last September by Chicago-based label Trouble in Mind.

Pusher headed out onto the road for a relentless amount of live shows and are now looking to build on their tenacious momentum with their latest release. Hours spent holed up in their practice room, situated above a pub in their native county Yorkshire, gave birth to the new set of tracks found on 10,000 Hours. The band also had a large input in the recording process, allowing them to bottle up their anthemic, pulsating rhythms across six meandering tracks.

Thomas Hemingway (bass) and Ben Scarff (drums) complete the line-up and are a defining reason Pusher’s reputed live show is so vociferous. Utilising the advantages being a five-piece band can bring, Pusher’s huge sound has this year landed them coveted spots at both Kendal Calling and The Isle of Wight Festival, performing to busy crowds on both occasions.As the festival season has drawn to a close, Pusher are now concentrating on soon to be announced tour dates that will see their sonic brand of atmospheric music pulsating through venues around the UK. The EP’s track list as well as their currently booked dates can be found below, with more to be announced shortly (including an EP launch date).”
