2014 sees the awaited return of Jonathan Boulet.
After a year in Germany and now based in London, Boulet is back with his third full-length, GUBBA. The Grammy Award-viewing multi-flop song producer has announced an East Coast album tour, taking in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane throughout August. Tickets on sale now.
Boulet’s debut self-titled album released in 2009 and 2012’s We Keep The Beat, Found The Sound, See The Need, Start The Heart (both on Modular) were critically praised and saw him grace the stage with the likes of Mumford & Sons, Tame Impala, Kate Nash, Tom Vek and Kindness. He also has played at every festival known to music lovers in Australia from Splendour to Vivid to Falls to Homebake.
Gubba is a grimier, ballsier more worldly Boulet.
A “deeply original and visionary artist” (Rolling Stone)
Australian audiences will get a taste of the exotic when one of Argentina’s most famous musical exports Juana Molina returns triumphantly in September.
The bewitching Molina is known for creating opulent soundscapes with songs that combine folk, electronica and a little bit of South American jazz with a transcendent voice.
The Buenos Aires-born singer-songwriter has a huge international following, having released six acclaimed albums, provided guest vocals for The Chemical Brothers’ 2007 track Seal and toured the world multiple times. She will be performing tracks from her new album Wed 21 - a haunting record composed, performed, recorded and produced entirely by Molina in her Buenos Aires studio.
Molina has led a remarkable life. After a military coup in 1976 established a brutal dictatorship in Argentina, she fled as a teenager with her family to Paris. Here, she started listening to music from all over the world and honed the guitar style that her father, a tango musician, had taught her to play from the age of six. Her love of music took a brief hiatus when she returned to Argentina and built a career as one of Latin America’s most popular comic actresses thanks to her hit TV sketch show Juana y Sus Hermanas. However, she eventually gave up her comedy career to focus on her true passion once again.
Australian audiences will be given a rare treat, with the lush musical tapestries created by this extraordinary artist.
