Tenth Court, WILD WAX SHOWS, Otis Tours & Bedroom Suck presents…

January 4 – 27

Forming in the same sweaty nucleus of Brisbane, Australia, the music of Thigh Master and Dag has long been intertwined, sharing an interchangeable roster of members and a mutual passion for bright and beautiful guitar pop sounds. On the road, Thigh Master and Dag have covered a considerable distance together, at home and abroad, traversing endless kilometres through Outback Australia and sharing the journey overseas to play for audiences in Japan. Having both recently released debut LPs, the two bands are joining forces yet again to play a slew of dates across Europe this January. Warm yourself against the cold with the revised Striped Sunlight Sound!

They’ll have a brand new split 7” EP available on the tour thanks to Bruit Direct Disques!

“Some critics say a gig mustn’t inform your evaluation of a record, but they haven’t seen Thigh Master. When the Brisbane band played late and loose at the Union Hotel in Sydney the mood spilled right across the room, freeing everyone of their inhibitions. When I heard their debut record a few weeks later it summoned the same sense of short-lived liberation; a weirdly desperate conviction that you must take that free feel when you can and ride it for all it’s worth.” – The Guardian

So goes “Benefits of Solitude” — the title-track from Dag’s forthcoming, long-laboured debut — premiering today. It’s a four-minute unguided tour of the desolate landscape of Dagworld, where Cohen reflection and a stammer of alt-alt-country lazily swerve towards a more guided pop glow, placing the whole patchwork somewhere on the spectrum aside Lower Plenty’s travelling restlessness and the confessional comfort of Goon Sax. And while the Melbourne quartet’s previously previewed LP tracks — “Guards Down” and “Staying Up At Night” — land closer to the flowing nature of their post-Dunedin contemporaries, “Benefits of Solitude” is all its own beautiful mess, playfully poetic and upbeat, operating clearly as a mere mask for the unfiltered darker side. -Rolling Stone
