The Dwarf Recommends: Tiny Ruins, Hoy

Today we're focusing on southern-hemispheric talent. One of the bands you'll read about below has been plugged by a northern-hemispheric talent, David Lynch - so that's really cool if you appreciate his character - and the other is basically mustering notice through considerable yakka. No more ado:

Tiny Ruins

New Zealand three-piece Tiny Ruins come with an endorsement from the near-terminally eccentric Lynch, so you know at the very least they deal in subliminal magic. The human voices you'll hear are within inches of being humanly perfect. Melodies take darting heights and declines like they do in country music, but these guys seem closer to folk-pop. I can't quite explain the distinction further -- you'll feel it.


HOY are from Melbourne and while they've not yet secured themselves a Lynch-ing they're probably not far from worthy. Their debut record Aquaslum is out in May and apparently is a compilation of 'folk rock telescopic pop'. We've never quite sampled telescopic pop prior to this, as we're sure you haven't, so look at the members of HOY as educators; we could all learn how to 'folk' a little better.
