I'll give you bonafied lovin'!

Having released their debut full-length album Limbs May Fall late last year to praise such as "this record and its songs creep up on you slowly, like memories, and take their place in the part of your heart reserved for truly impressive art" (Inpress), Khancoban launch a film clip for the album's title track on Saturday March 14 at The Curtin Bandroom.  The clip was made by film-maker Michael Henry, who worked with the band previously for the 'Smoke and the Light' film clip (from the self-titled record). 

Khancoban will be celebrating the addition of two new band members on the night as well, Jim Patterson (who has previously Khanee'd it up and features on a number of tracks on Limbs May Fall) and Lucas Barbuto (a longtime friend of the band) join on keys and bass respectively. The film clip features the new line up. Khancoban will play songs from both of their records alongside some new material.

Joining Khancoban at the video launch will be Seagull, whose sparse, hypnotic songs and distorted folk apocalypses have been attracting more and more attention of late, as well as the psych twang of The Polites.  To add to this, RRR's Dave Slutzkin will be spinning tracks between and after bands. It all happens Saturday March 14 at The Curtin Bandroom (29 Lygon St. Carlton, city end) and entry is $10.

Nic Dalton and his Gloomchasers have released a summer single while they put the finishing touches to the Play All Night album (due out in May 2009). It's a bluegrass cover of the Chromeo disco hit Bonafied Lovin' and is available from iTunes only: iTunes

Cover Art Another new song from Nic Dalton appears on the US label Planting Seed's compilation Blue Skies Daisy Days . Titled 'Domestic Bliss' and co-written with Nic's wife Kylie, it also features Gloomchasers drummer Danny Heifetz. Check it out here: iTunes
