Chimes :: 12:00pm 4th Jan 2020

The Spires from Ventura, California are my latest obsession. Their brand of guitar pop skirts the edges of ’80s Flying Nun – slightly brooding melancholic music with harmonious barbs that get under your skin with a slight Byrdsian jangle – making it perfect to play on Chimes. As well – local hero Robert Forster, a great duo from Melbourne headed to SXSW in Shards, Mock Turtle, Velvet Underground and much more!
