The Dwarf Recommends: DMA's, Ned Collette & Wirewalker

So the Easter break is done with, and while we're all sharing a state of confectionery-induced vegetation the only suitable thing to do is give ourselves over to the promise of something new. Therefore, we recommend:


Sydney lads DMA's are enjoying a fair bit of play at the moment - triple j having leapt on 'Delete', their leading single - and it's refreshing to note they're bent on doing their own thing as if the notice hasn't phased them. Tracks 'Feels like 37' and 'Delete' feel honest, ordinary; the boys are clever lyricists but won't try and convince you. Theirs is madchester-flavoured minimalism the likes of which we haven't heard in a long time.

Ned Collette & Wirewalker

Ned Collette's 'stuff' - that's what he calls it - is quite difficult to classify. 'Vanitas Quack' is restless, dulcet electronica that seems to move quickly nowhere by design. Collette and his Wirewalker team don't like to resolve their progressions and melodies in conventional ways, and while their art may distress and disconcert in small doses it will entrance given an extended chance. Their LP, Networking In Purgatory, is out now.
