Boy & Bear release their third studio album "Limit of Love", produced by Ethan Johns (Kings Of Leon, Ryan Adams).

The album, including all lead vocals, was recorded and mixed live resulting in an amazingly fresh and unique sound.

Limit of Love follows acclaimed Harlequin Dream, a gold album after a #1 debut in Australia. The band has been featured on ‘ones to watch’ lists for USA Today, Huffington Post and Uncut.


No Ladder (Toy Remix)


    Basements hung with fairy lights, 60s tape reels spinning antique spools, drums dusted with white powder. Gritty riffs and psych rock washes slither beneath airy, blissed-blank Nico vocals spinning spectral tales of shattered romance. A beautifully ruined pair – he a leather-clad glowering guitar phantom, she a glacial, broken bombshell – blow glitter at each other through the flashes from old cameras.

    This is the world of Coves, a classic psych-garage aesthetic vacuum-sealed forever in one time, one space. The space is Castle Grayskull, the live-in studio that musical mastermind John Ridgard helped build in a disused office in Leamington Spa and where their debut album was recorded. And the time covers the duration of singer and lyricist Beck Wood's last big relationship, laid out in her songs from first flutter to final choke.

    'No Ladder' gets the remix treatment by TOY turning it into an epic, beat driven psychedelic dream.

    Within weeks of finishing work on 2011’s award-winning, internationally renowned debut LP, Moonfire — months before it was even released — singer / songwriter Dave Hosking was hit by a creative tsunami. Boy & Bear is a band that likes to follow their muse — and the new songs were flowing.The cocoon-like existence of working together in a new environment — Nashville, in the case of Moonfire — generated its share of magic, but Hosking and his fellow Boy & Bears wanted to bring it all back home, to get back to where their musical journey began in 2009. His band mates Tim Hart, Killian Gavin, Jon Hart and David Symes, agreed.

    The record in question is Harlequin Dream, their bold and brave new album, conceived and ‘birthed’ in their hometown of Sydney. And they couldn’t have picked a more appropriate venue in which to make the magic happen: the legendary Alberts studio, the spiritual home of AC/DC, the Easybeats and many, many other homegrown legends. Their music only went offshore when takes were sent to Phil Ek in Seattle, who’s worked with such bands as Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes and Modest Mouse, to be mixed. It was the perfect arrangement for this very Sydney band.

    Boy & Bear’s debut record Moonfire took the band to some places they never thought they’d see, including several tours of Europe and America, and went on to win five ARIA Awards, including Album of the Year.


    Ryan says: Opening on a trinity of 70's rock and unfolding into a seductive mellowness that's carried on through.

    Third album by acclaimed Norwegian artist Hanne Hukkelberg. In part inspired by her teenage past as a member of various rock bands and in part by her 80s dominated collection of indie/rock albums, the likes of Sonic Youth, Cocteau Twins, Pixies, Einstüerzende Neubauten, Siouxsie & The Banshees and P.J. Harvey have all exerted an influence over Hanne's new songs, which continue her penchant for combining traditional and unusual instrumentation to form a soundscape unique to her. For a self-confessed 'rock' album, "Blood From A Stone" still manages to include field recordings of seagulls, clogs, kitchen utensils, freezers, stoves and a school desk. Although recorded in Hanne's Oslo studio, the songs were written during a seven month spell living in a tiny coastal village on the Norwegian island of Senja, 300 kilometres north of the Polar Circle.
