Max Stern has become a familiar face here in Australia. Having toured twice before, the first time 'round in 2014 with Wil Wagner (The Smith Street Band) and Sydney's Pinch Hitter and a second tour with the latter two years ago, it was only a matter of time before he brought over his main project, indie punk band, Signals Midwest.

We caught up with Max during a short run of solo shows with Pinch Hitter before the start of Signals' very first Australian tour, which sees them wrap things up as a part of the ridiculously stacked line up of Pool House Party in Melbourne. We filmed two songs for this session, a Signals song previously released on his latest solo EP, and an incredible collaboration with Pinch Hitter for their song, Never Meant Again.

After a few years as a solo musician, Sydney's Vetty Vials has teamed up with a band to bring her country tinged folk punk new life. Vetty & The Sandpit Turtles released their debut EP, I Am Okay, I Promise, this year and made their Melbourne debut at Whisk & Key's Not Fest 5, with Adelaide and Canberra shows up next this month. 

We caught up with Vetty in a Footscray park to film 'Closer Than' off the EP and a new song called, 'Say'.

Given that the title of their debut album was the inspiration for our own project name, it felt inevitable that we'd one day film videos with Tassie legends, Luca Brasi. After a cavalcade of incredible tours, another successful year of their homegrown weekender festival Til The Wheels Fall Off, and an upcoming spot on this years Falls Festival line up, the guys have earned their success with no shortage of good things heading their way.

We filmed a couple of stripped back songs from If This Is All We're Going To Be in an Adelaide gutter with Tyler and Busby and a particularly shiny guitar.
