No doubt Australian fans of Touché Amoré, Turnover and Endless Heights are still dealing with some distant ringing in their ears, given that all three bands were recently in town for a run of headline shows throughout out our fair nation. From the tour van, to the stages, the bands had become strong travel companions. We couldn’t split them up so we decided to hit up all the bands to join us for the next episode of Vinyl Raiding.
We went to Sydney’s iconic vinyl dungeon Resist Records alongside Touché Amoré vocalist Jeremy Bolm, Turnover vocalist Austin Getz and Endless Heights vocalist Joel Martorana. Throughout the session, the guys uncovered some undeniable sonic gems hidden within the rows of records. Jeremy had a field day stumbling upon rare and coveted releases including …Some Girls, Vision Of Disorder and more, talking through why each release simply must be bought.
Joel took us through some of his recent music discoveries including his go-to jogging music, Incendiary and the band that started it all for the Sydney-based rocker, Parkway Drive. Joel, alongside Austin tag A Tribe Called Quest as a big impressions on their musical output. Throughout the raid, Austin digs deep into the classics, finding The Smiths, Gang Of Four, Black Sabbath and The Cure.
Touché Amoré were in town supporting their current record, 2016’s Stage Four. Turnover will be releasing their next opus, Good Nature, in August. Endless Heights burst back onto the scene with two new singles Pray I Fade and Drain, with even more on the horizon.
